Well played, autism.

This is awesome! I've been wanting to start a comedy troupe with a few of my students for a while, but keep getting the idea shut down for various reasons, mainly the fact that there could be hecklers in the crowd like there usually are at comedy shows. That's bullshit.
1) What do you teach?
2) Sell me on a sketch idea.
3) If you guys were an improv troupe what would your name be?
Also, just, god damnit zest.
I teach music. Mostly Bassoon but other instruments as well. In addition to my day job as a facilitator for a social services organization for adults with developmental disabilities, I co-direct an arts organization for many of the folks who use the service. Right now it's strictly music, but I want to branch out and do things like this. If you're on facebook I'll be posting a link to the musical I'm doing; if you're in Portland or know anyone who is I'd be happy to send an invite! I sometimes post on poe's FB :)
As far as a sketch idea goes, I dunno. That's completely up to them. But they're really into KitH and You Can't Do That on Television from what I can tell. I wrote a couple of seasons for a show that I was going to pitch to Adult Swim, and I might give them a few pointers but I wanna keep it clean(ish) at least at first, but basically I don't want my hands in it at all. Same goes with the name. I defected from a different arts org a few years ago because the board and directors made all the decisions and it was exactly what this troupe describes on their website as a "minstrel show." Let's promote ourselves through altruism yay. Fuck that. My job's just to make sure that everybody gets to make everybody laugh and clap and develop friendship and community spirit through the power of oh wait I'm just quoting the mission statement. Anyway...

That was NOT a pity laugh that just came outta me!
No it was a desperate cry for help as your whale blubber slowly crushes your heart
John when you are floating there in your holding tank do you keep your laptop on some kind of inflatable island deal or is the laptop itself waterproof? Also when your handlers bring you your daily feed do they just throw the half eaten pizza slices tin cans and Apple cores at you or what, I understand you have a very limited spectrum of physical interaction because of your halitosis and overpowering characteristic musk of dead cats and spoiled mayo
