We just got word that we won’t be attending that CBC sketch comedy special in Toronto. The producers picked another group from the Atlantic Provinces. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that they didn’t pick any of the other groups that performed that night in Halifax. That would have been hard to take, since I thought we were the best of the bunch. They picked a group from Newfoundland, a group that sent in a demo tape since they couldn’t make the voyage to Halifax to perform. That’s too bad, that they got to submit what I assume to be their best material, while the rest of us were judged on what we did on that night. I wonder if we would have had a better shot if we had just sent them a DVD of our material? Probably not.
Anyway, ahead we go, writing sketches for another summer show here in PEI.
At least Charlottetown audiences love and or hate us.
