Some exciting news: my sketch comedy team, June’s Cleaver, is now officially a Main Stage sketch team at the iO West theater in Hollywood! We’ve been writing and performing a new show each month for over a year now. Come out and see our next show this Sunday! It’s going to be ~spOoOokily~ good!
We know too much. It’s getting harder and harder to keep watching this show without turning to all the baggage that’s out there in the tabloids (okay, Radar Online) and blog world (okay, Vulture comments). I don’t especially feel like commenting on a marital breakdown, but to not acknowledge it just seems… weird, no? When I see a scene of a husband and wife acting like everything is fine, but it’s a couple days after the wife reportedly found him with his mistress in their summer home… is that still none of my business? No, of course it isn’t.
Well, what do I do with the rumors that another long-term couple on the show weren’t actually together during this season, despite appearing that way for the cameras? It affects the structure and meaning of the show. Isn’t commenting on that kind of thing my job? Critiquing the performances, if you will?
