2012 Chicago Sketchfest: Sat 1/7 Picks

January 7, 2012

The 2012 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival (AKA Sketchfest) charges ahead tonight with 24 groups performing on four stages (The Thrust, The Pro, The Box, The Cab) at Stage 773.

Shows start at 6pm. That’s a lot of comedy.

There are lots of good choices tonight. Many of my picks feature members that I’ve interviewed on the Let’s Get Serious podcast—links below.


Let’s Get Serious with Mandy Whitenack

April 17, 2011

Off Off Broadzway perform “almost sexy sketch comedy” that’s sort of a musical parody of burlesque.

They have a new run of shows coming up at Stage 773 so I sat down with Mandy Whitenack to discuss her character, Ricki Dickyouless.

She tells me about eating dirt as a baby, Indiana’s Pizza King, Flat Top Grill and early musical theater experiences.

“Broadz Bitch” Music Video

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:
