I just came back from the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival

It has been a while since I have posted, so I wanted to let you know…

  1. I’m still alive
  2. I miss you and think of you often
  3. I’m still doing comedy and have some super exciting things to share :)

Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival
I just got back from performing in The Great White North with my team National Scandal at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival. We’re officially international! It was so much fun as we got to meet sketch writers and performers from around the world and perform for sold out audiences. Funny story, there was a four year old sitting in the front row of one of our shows, which we were all a little nervous about based on some of our material, but then she laughed while someone was getting pretend-murdered, which made everyone in the audience and backstage laugh. So kudos for stealing the spotlight, kid.

While we were at the festival, we got to do a workshop with Bruce McCulloch from Kids in the Hall! In addition to being one of my comedy idols, he was also maybe the nicest person I’ve ever met and I’ve met Maria Menounos (who is also very nice in case that wasn’t clear).

Now you might be thinking, “Wow I’d love to see Jen perform with the now internationally acclaimed sketch comedy team National Scandal. When/how can I do that?” Well we have a show in NYC this Saturday night at 7:00pm at The People’s Improv Theater! That’s right 7:00pm making it the perfect time to grab an early dinner with some friends and then catch the show before dancing the night away.

Teaching
This week I start teaching Intro to Sketch Comedy Writing at The People’s Improv Theater as well, which is kind of mind blowing for me that three years into this adventure I am teaching one of the first classes I took. So excited for this opportunity to get to work with other comedy writers in New York.

Would love to see you or hear from you soon,

Jen
