Friday is Sketch Day
I am in the process of re-tooling the blog. I would like to keep Mondays as a theory day, but shout-outs have been difficult to keep going. I would like to profile amateur comics at this point, as me just listing my favourite professionals seems like a poor use of writing time. SO. I’ll say this. Email me, I will email you back with 10-12 questions, and we’ll do a profile. Otherwise, see you Mondays and Fridays. i.e. see you tomorrow when this whole re-tooling thing gets underway.
Speaking of Fridays, I was running out of resources to share and at a bit of a loss at what to do with the day. At this point I am thinking about talking a little bit about sketch comedy. I know it is not directly stand-up related, but there are many over-lapping aspects.
Having recently started writing and performing with a sketch group, this has become a big part of my life, and I am learning a lot.
On Fridays I hope to post a sketch from a recent Sunday Night Live, and maybe chat a little bit about the process. We’ll see how it goes.
Thoughts: This week’s sketch is “Schwistle,” a sketch I wrote to work on scene structure. This one is very dear to my heart because it involves a little ditty written by my good chum Chris Saker. I borrowed the tune and wrote a sketch around it, that essentially celebrates my love of whistles.
MVP Moment: The way Daryn turns around when I call him the heart of darkness.
Fun fact: the ocarina used in this sketch is one of about ten I own. The flute and keytar are also unfortunately mine.
Anyways, every fracking week we write a brand new hour and a half show. You should come see it sometime. 9:30pm at Comedy Bar in Toronto (945 Bloor St. West, Delaware Exit from Ossington Station).
