Isaac Kessler & Ken Hall ……….. 2-MAN NO-SHOW!

If you had to pitch your act to a Hollywood producer as though it were a movie, your logline would be:

Ken: 2-MAN NO-SHOW – The absurd and unpredictable tale of two underdogs lost in the demands of modern day life but finding salvation and sanctuary in movies, music and friendship.

Isaac: 2-MAN NO-SHOW – Two Men, Two Dreams … One Reality. Take the ride of your life as these two heroes battle surmountable odds and dragons. Also, there will be nudity.

What other troupes or workshops are you looking forward to seeing / attending this festival?

The most common misconception about sketch comedy is:

That it’s easy and anyone can do it. Being funny can be hard work – it’s not as easy as it looks.

You are commissioned to write a sketch about Rob Ford and Justin Bieber trapped on a lifeboat adrift in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. What happens?

Justin is terrified of the humongous Ford, because Rob ate Usher and Scooter Braun. Justin keeps him at bay with a large stick. Justin builds a floatation raft and retreats to it, but when he is unable to catch fish, he journeys back to the lifeboat and conditions Rob to take a submissive role by using pie and pussy as a positive reinforcer. Two hundred and twenty-seven days later, they somehow end up on a Mexican beach. Rob Ford disappears into the crack-filled jungle without a glance back. In the hospital, two officials question Justin and he responds by saying “”We’re just friends,” what are you saying. Said “there’s another,” and looked right in my eyes. My first love broke my heart for the first time.” The officials stare blankly at him.

SLOW FADE OUT
