It has been a busy holiday season to say the least. We are securing the last bookings for 2009 All Sketch. In just a couple of days I can start saying This Year's All Sketch. :)
Yesterday I booked a group called Aardvark Fancy. They offered no performance history, as a troupe or as individuals. They seem reluctant to send me a photo having so far sent me pictures of their pet hamsters, their neighbor's dog and a photo of Scott Baio autographed to someone named Jody.
What they did provide me with was an audio tape that, once I managed to find a tape player, had me laughing harder than I have in quite some time. When I called to book them they accepted but asked if I could get some other sketch comedians to write AND perform their material for them.
This should be interesting.
Also added to the line up, Doctor Doctor. This duo features Ben Miller and my co-producer Sid Garcia Heberger, both of I Can't Believe It's Not Comedy doing a series of original vignettes depicting the relationship between therapists and patients.
VOLUNTEERS! Start getting a hold of us. We do have volunteer positions open for ushers, tickets takers and video camera operators (must have experience.)
More news soon.
