sketchtown

for those of you who have curiosities about the process of comedy/what we really do, this entry is for you. three friends and i are currently in process of writing a (yet to be titled) sketch show. it's been a while since i've done a sketch show, since i primarily focus on improv and $ketches for biznass, so i am more psyched than ever to do the thing i actually came here for.

rich wants to dip into directing, so he asked four of us to put a show together: joey bland (hall of pres, csz, baby wants candy), rance rizzutto (johnny roast beef, csz), marla caceres (cougars, whirled news tonight), and self (you know me). i've just met marla, and she is so fun and wonderful. joey and rance i obviously just love to bits. it couldn't be better.

today we had our second meeting and brought some homework to the table. we each wrote down ideas or a starter scene or two. this stuff made me laugh a LOT.

a goal of a lot of sketch writers here is to do something new or innovative with a scripted show. that's an honest, noble goal, yet in a city of talented creatives, it's hard to do something cutting edge. because of this, we decided our goal was just to be funny. as funny as possible.

we'll see where that leads.
