As my final semester as a Puget Sound student comes to a close, I thought I’d post about one of my favorite things I participated in as an undergrad: Ubiquitous They Sketch Comedy. This group is my family away from family. Every semester, we put on a comedy show written, directed, and acted by students. Tech week is terrible, being in Rausch’s tiny theater 6 to midnight every day… but in reality I love every minute. Getting to spend so much time with such genuinely good and funny people has defined my Puget Sound experience.
BUT ENOUGH WITH THE CHEESE. Let’s get to the funny stuff. Here’s a look at my final sketch show with UT Sketch Comedy — UT Presents: I ate a nickle!
Sometimes you write a sketch about Merlin and his degenerate brother, Mervin. And then your friend Darrin gets cast as Merlin you get cast as Mervin. And then there’s only one prop beard and you’re supposed to be super creepy anyway so they make you wear your hair as a beard.
It’s been incredible being a part of such a funny family. I’m happy to have spent time with so many talented individuals and look forward to seeing what UT Sketch creates in the future.
BUT I’M NOT GONNA LEAVE YOU WITH CHEESE! Oh no, you get left with comedy. I give you this semester’s video sketch: Kids at a Bar. Written by John Miller Giltner and directed/edited by Michelle Leatherby and myself. Brace yourself, it’s weird.
Here’s to many more weird wizards, questionable props, and adults in diapers. Oh, and laughs too.
