The NBCUniversal Late Night Writers Workshop is a program focused on exposing talented joke, sketch and comedy writers to NBCUniversal's late-night & alternative lineup and readying them for a staff writer position. We are looking for writers who are "almost there" but need that final bit of preparation and exposure to key industry players. We particularly encourage female writers and those of diverse backgrounds to apply.
The NYC-based workshop will consist of improv classes, as well as keynote speakers. The selected writers will create new sketch material and gain insight into the dynamics of a late night writers’ room, as well as learn about NBCUniversal’s late-night & alternative lineup. Participants are given the chance to interact with key writers and producers from across NBCUniversal’s late-night shows, as well as receive feedback on their material. Successful participants’ material will be submitted to NBCU’s late-night & alternative executives, but writing assignments are not a guarantee.
