Friday is Sketch Day – Mr. Baldo
This Friday I wanted to show a sketch I wrote that was in a recent Sunday Night Live with The Sketchersons. It’s called Mr. Baldo, and it’s about my bald, bald head.
What I Learned: The script didn’t call for so many hair-whipping extras, but I thought their disgusted reactions really strengthened the scene. It was a good lesson in how a talented performer can boost up a scene even with very little to work with.
Fun Fact: The idea for this sketch came out of a burn I received from my good friend Stacey McGunnigle, who asked me if I feel sad when Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” comes on the radio. (I do).
Favourite Moment: when Kaitlin screams, “Do you believe in towels?! Do you believe in them?!”
