This week we are adding a special session to work on sketch comedy. We all love improv and will ALWAYS “live” there, whether short or long form. But our mission is to bring healing laughter to our community. As we have talked about the things that have made us laugh over the years, sketch comedy keeps popping up: Weekend Update and so many memorable skits on SNL. Remember Aykroyd’s commercials, Belushi’s Samurai, and Todd and Lisa? Or how about Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman and Tim Conway – some of the funniest stuff ever on TV.
So in the future you may meet some recurring characters and see some sketch humor featured in our shows. Several of us love to write, and we are surrounded by gifted and experienced comedy writers here on South Whidbey. Got an idea? Write it up and send it to us. If we use your skit we’ll give you credit, treat you to a show, and if you want to join us onstage, let’s talk about “guest stars!”
We’re excited. We hope you will be, too.
Dan Aykroyd explains the inspiration behind the Bass-o-Matic. There was a REAL one!
