Sketch22 or Sketch Two, Too

Well, our second season gets underway this Thursday evening, a mere 23 hours from now.
I’m pretty nervous, wondering how the audience will react.  I have a lot of confidence in most of the material, although there are a few sketches for which I wonder how an audience will react.  We are, of course, fearful that the audience won’t share our group’s sense of humour, yet we also know that much of the show makes us all laugh a lot.  And the few people who’ve seen snippets of the new material have been genuinely laughing at it, so that’s good.  Still, the "Will They Like Us" nerves are definitely there.
It’s going to be a long 23 hours.  We have a late night dress rehearsal tomorrow night which should wipe us out.
Gulp.  What have we gotten into?  Whose bright idea was it to come up with all new material for this summer?  It sure would have been safer to rely on the successful sketches from last year.  But then, I probably wouldn’t have this pit of worry and nerves in my stomach right now.
The payoff, assuming that audiences dig it, will be worth it.  And the excitement and anticipation of giving the audience all new material is pretty intense.

Stay tuned…

  1. As someone who has seen some of the written work and someone who knows you, I think that the summer season will be a great success and that it will undoubtably be a laugh out loud experience.

    I have faith in you.

  2. I have absolute faith that this year’s show will be every bit as funny as last year’s. This is a bunch of really talented young white males. I’m sure that as long as there’s not much in the way of gratuitous obscenity, the audiences will respnd well.

  3. Hey Rob. As someone who’s seen pretty much the whole thing, i can say it was well worth doing new material. Coming up to it i was thinking “it’d be cool to see that character again”. But to be honest, change is better.

    It’s been a blast to be involved in such a kick-ass show.
