Hey Kids:
The winter months have passed us by, and we’re quickly approaching the summer. The last few weeks presented us with tons of rain, but that didn’t damper our spirits. Our weekly meetings have been fabulous, and we ran past midnight on a few occasions. That’s what happens when you combine creativity with a touch a madness. Here a few updates for ya:
The Return of Eric Owusu:

Eric stopped in town recently to pay us a visit. He’s one of the founding members of our group who move to NYC to chase his comedy dreams. Currently based in LA, he dropped tons of comedy advice as we discussed his adventures in performing and writing comedy. At that particular meeting, we skipped testing out new material and interviewed Eric that evening.

Favorite Writing Exercise of the Month:

One of our writing exercises this month was “The Fake WMATA Town Hall Meeting”!

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority is finally ready to address the public about their crappy service. I created “Mr. Horace P. Soultrain” to address angry questions from the audience. Performed this writing exercise in costume, I didn’t realize I would actually answer some of those questions. Dammit…we were rolling on the floor with laughter!

Just a reminder that we are working with all forms of comedy. You don’t have to be a standup comedian to attend or participate in our meetings. We tackle all types of humorous writing!
