What a week!
We’re in the midst of rehearsing for two days of 3-camera shoots (a la SNL) of parody sketches we’ve written. We’re filming next week. I can’t wait to see my Star Trek sketch come to fruition on screen. I’m a bit nervous about playing a prostitute, primarily for the protection of my own self-esteem. Perhaps I should consider forgetting the concept of self-esteem entirely for the rest of my second year at Humber and just go with the flow, as qotsa would say. Perhaps I should give up eating.
I performed a stand-up set as a dog sweater in class. It went over terribly, although I still stand by my jokes. Particularly this one:
“I’m not saying you have to be dumb to buy a sweater for your dog, I’m just saying I’m sorry your barren.”
Another big development – the sketch troupe I’d been performing in, LaughDraft, dissolved this past week, for several reasons. It’s too bad because we actually experienced some modest success at our shows, ie: people came to them. We got ahead pretty quick in the game, what with our entry into this year’s Sketchfest – and we were starting to be asked to perform with other Toronto troupes around town, but I guess, ultimately, it was not meant to be.
I hope it doesn’t take too long before I find people to sketch with.
Oh November – getting dark at 4:30 does not do good things for one’s personal motivation or morale. Good thing I already put up my Christmas lights! #livingalonerules #imsimultaneouslylonely
