The Teaching Annex - parody course catalog

I'm excited to announce that my former writing partner, Luke Del Tredici and I are giving the online world a glimpse at a cult-hit comedy project we put together five years ago. In 2006, we created a full 30-page fake copy of the "Learning Annex" course catalog, a parody that poked fun at the naive and smarmy "Yes You Can! If You Pay Us Enough" attitude of the real thing. We used it as a comedy writing sample, and it unexpectedly caught fire around Hollywood. For the past few years, we've heard that heavily-fingered copies of our fake Learning Annex had made its way into sitcom writers' rooms and network executives' bathrooms.

Today, we're excited to share this bathroom-reading with the world! We're rolling out an online version of the course catalog at, (UPDATE: (a little name change to avoid legalities) and tweeting @teachingannex.

For the next few months, you can check out a new course every day. Follow our RSS or Twitter feed, and if you like it, please share it with friends!
