So, guess who has to go back to the State Supreme Court for day 2 of jury duty? This guy. Apologies that my blogging trends seemed to falter this week – between a sketch comedy show on Monday and jury duty on Thursday, I’ve been spending my week getting as much work done as possible before I had to go do my patriotic duty.
Sketch comedy show? What’s that Matt Fried? Yup folks, I was finally in one of those. It was directed by Kevin Allison of The State (for all you non-comedy nerds, it was a very popular alterna-comedy group in the mid-’90s; they had a show on MTV). Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I got to work with some really great up and coming writers and performers. Here’s one of the sketches I was in: a parody of Top Chef. Since this was a class show, keep in mind we produced it with no budget and 12 hours of rehearsal (or, one lost weekend). Plus, my British accent is fake (I know, you would’ve never guessed). More to come, enjoy!
