2012 Chicago Sketchfest: Fri 1/6 Picks

January 6, 2012

The 2012 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival (AKA Sketchfest) continues tonight with sixteen groups performing on four stages (The Thrust, The Pro, The Box, The Cab) at Stage 773.

If last night was any indication this Sketchfest will be as packed as ever before. Prepare for crowds and occasionally spilling out onto the sidewalk for some fresh air. At least it’s not crazy cold this year.

These are my picks for tonight.


Let’s Get Serious with Carisa & Kevin

May 9, 2011

Carisa and Kevin are a sketch comedy and improv performing couple of live-together lovers.

They’ve both performed with The Second City’s Boat Co on Norwegian Cruise Lines and are immersed in so many comedy-related activities in Chicago that we talked for close to two hours.

We discuss hunting the most dangerous game, dramatic juggling and why The Second City is a good place to go on a date.

“Broadz Bitch” Music Video

November 12, 2010

A day in the life of the ladies of Off Off Broadzway. Wake up outside, get a face tattoo, hang out with androgynous midget, you know, your typical Tuesday…

Off Off Broadzway are a Chicago-based musical sketch comedy group. A couple weeks ago I filmed this music video with them. You may recognize Liz and Kelly who I’ve worked with a lot in the past on OneTwoThree videos.

Off Off Broadzway have a holiday show coming up called “Let it Ho!” all through the month of December. Details can be found on their website:
