Being Sketchy

Just wanted to share with you a fun experience I had last Friday night… a few gents from my UCB 201 class plus a token female (me), decided to participate in an Upright Citizens Brigade open-mic of sorts: “Liquid Courage.”  This is a late-night opportunity for up and coming sketch groups to try out their sketchy skills in front of a not-so-sober audience.  Actually, it should be noted that some of the sketch groups were also in this “not-so-sober” category.  The five of us prepared a sketch about a crazy party-guy who hits on all the ladies in the office (writing props to Sydney).  We rehearsed Thursday and Friday, and were ready to go by midnight – complete with two of the guys dressed in skirts and wigs as ladies.  I think all our nerves were a little haywire before the show started, but by the time we walked on stage we were pumped and ready to go.  The sketch ended up being a lot of fun, and seemed to be well-received by the audience!  Though we weren’t out of the theater until after 2AM, we decided to still celebrate with a beer down the street.  This is definitely something we will be trying again!
