The H2G sketch class started last night – this is the performance class which means it ends with a, um, performance.

Class was awesome, and it was really fun to see how well improv complements sketch. We’d get a basic skeleton of an idea for a sketch, and then play around with improv to find the beats and really figure out where the funny was coming from, then get input from Darren and the rest of the class. Now we have a week to fine-tune a few of those that had a lot of potential, and we’ll see next week how they’re fleshing out.

There are plenty of scenes I could tell you about, but I won’t because I don’t know yet which ones are going to end up in the show and I don’t want to ruin the surprise for you. But the good news is, we could’ve just kept the scenes we created last night and made an awesome show from them – and yet, we still have 3 more writing sessions to come up with even more, better, funnier material. So be sure and get your tickets (they go on sale at the website on Sunday, October 14) or you will be sad. The show runs for 2 nights, and seating is limited.
