One more night of rehearsal and then, my new sketch group Brick Penguin goes public.  Yikes.  Here’s a new blurb on what we’re mixed up with here. 

The Family Hemerlein Variety Show gets a plug from Perez Hilton.

We are the sketch comedy interludes before the Smoke Fairies hit the stage.  I am seriously not cool enough to hang with these ladies.

You guys wanna grab a salad at Chopt? No? Ok.

Me and my allergies did our first “in studio” live streaming podcast situation on The Mariya Alexander Show.  Mariya is a lovely lady who does stand-up in DC and has recently taken up classes with WIT.  She does her show every Sunday at 1pm EST and last week I went to the studio in Fairfax to promote WIT, FIST and sketch writing.  You can go to iTunes to subscribe to the free podcast. 

Here is a link to the show:

Keanu sends well wishes to not just America’s Sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, in her time of need but to all of us in general.  When asked this weekend if he has any well wishes to send to Sandra Bullock, Keanu elegantly replied, “Yes, of course, to everyone.”

That’s such a nice thing to say, I almost forgive you for The Lake House.

Over the last week I’ve been writing and rehearsing sketch material to be debuted at Brightest Young Things: The Family Hemerlein Variety Show on March 25th.  I am super excited.  Brightest Young Things will be posting an interview of me and Murphy McHugh on Monday so keep an eye out for that.  Here’s a blurb from Brightest Young Things:

Secondly, the comedic headliner shall be Brick Penguin, the unofficial sketch comedy troupe of the Washington Improv Theater. Led by Murph McHugh and Tara Maher the head instructors of the WIT’s brand new sketch comedy school, the small band of abstract and cerebral outsiders are bringing to DC the power and innovation of the Upright Citizens Brigade [and] the Second City.
