make a video

For this assignment, you will be creating and acting out a physical/slapstick comedy short sketch based on one of the short routines that you have seen in the videos in this module.


1. Choose a short routine from one of the videos that you think is funny and that you feel you can recreate in the comfort of your home.

2. Watch the video section of the sketch multiple times so you can catch all the nuances and details of how the comedian pulls it off. Make sure to notice facial expressions and exactly what they are doing with their body movement.

3. Write down the steps to perform it. Add in your own creative touches. Gather together any props, furniture, etc. that you will need. You can also use others in your household to help you with it.

4. Record it into Canvas. Here’s how:
