Earlier this year, I took a sketch writing class at Killing My Lobster, a sketch comedy company in San Francisco. At the end of the seven-week course (which I highly recommend) each student got to have at least one of their sketches performed in a final show: a live table-read by honest-to-god sketch comedy actors!
I wasn’t able to make it to the performace, but the instructors were kind enough to take a video of the one sketch I got into the show. Here it is:
Incidentally, the sketch was partially inspired by Monty Python’s “Bookshop” sketch, which I once performed with my friend John in front of a live audience at a Junior High talent show.
