On Friday, October 11th at midnight at UCB Chelsea, we will be putting up a show featuring sketches written as part of NaSkeWriMo. Participation in the show is open to anyone who wrote as part of NaSkeWriMo. Just sign up with this form and you might be able to perform your favorite piece from this month!
We the hosts will go through all the submissions and include as many as we can. If you don’t know any performers, we will be accumulating a pool of actors to fill roles. (any actor who wants to be involved, please email us at naskewrimoshow [at] gmail.)
Sketches should be no longer than five minutes and should have minimal tech cues, since the tech guy will be doing this cold.
Deadline to sign up is Wednesday, October 2nd at midnight. If accepted, we’ll inform you by Saturday the 5th.
If you have any questions, you can let me know at naskewrimoshow [at] gmail.com.
Where did the time go? September is already halfway over, and with it, so is NaSkeWriMo. If you’re falling behind and want to hit your thirty, now’s the time to catch up!
But seriously, say you have written k sketches; then you are currently (15-k) sketches behind and can catch up by writing two sketches per day for (15-k) days, or you can write 3 sketches per day for approximately [(15-k)/3] days (where the square brackets denote the greatest integer function), or—if you are very daring—write four sketches per day for a maximum of four days, necessary only if you haven’t already begun.
Or better yet you can never think about math again and do comedy instead. Happy writing y’all!
This is a new thing, in the vein of the IRC boards, for sketch. It’s one of those things that becomes more useful the more we use it, so, make it happen! Share! Plug your show! Tout your directing skills! Form a writing group!
I think Google changed how Google Docs works since last year, because when I click on a lot of new sketch links, this is what I see!
If you use Google Docs, remember to change Who has access to be Public on the Internet or Anyone with the link. (If you actually want your sketch to be private, remember that you don’t have to post a link at all.)
Hey, I sure am in this location right now.
(Straight Person enters)
Excuse me, Funny Person?
What's the deal with this odd occurrence that's currently happening?
Oh, that's just our wacky premise.
Our wacky premise. It's because of this just-on-the-side-of-plausible justification.
Wait, so you're doing this reasonable assumption?
No, we're doing this humorous example.
(Continue for about two more humorous examples of escalating silliness)
What you're doing is wrong! I will now explain to you why this doesn't work in our reasonable society!
Wow. You may be right. I guess I will stop with the wacky premise.
Hey, Funny Person? Something's happening that either reverses what we know or proves it to be worse than originally assumed.
(Everyone smiles at audience. Play popular song from the 80s whose chorus glancingly references the premise. Wait for huge stacks of sketch cash as well as pussy and/or dick depending on your personal preference)
