Friday is Sketch Day – Simulacrum
Today’s sketch was really all about just unleashing Kaitlin Loftus’ deadly physical comedy on an unsuspecting crowd. The structure is simple, and like most simple things, it worked.
What I Learned: Sometimes working in a group is just acknowledging an area where someone is gifted, and then staying out of their way. A couple of times leading up to the show Kaitlin asked me what I thought for costumes or movement, and I refused to give any input because I knew I would just water it down.
Fun Fact: It doesn’t come through very well in the video, but both Kaitlin and I had ziplock bags full of water in our pockets to simulate peeing our pants. This was after trying other technologies like water balloons. When I burst my bag it all fell in one ball of water straight down my pant leg and into my shoe. Oh well, next time.
Favourite Moment: Definitely when Jocelyn and Kaitlin crack up near the end.
