A Very Special Episode - Facts Of Life - Breaking Point

The 3rd of 5 re-released episodes, previously found on Soundcloud:

Quick Synopsis of the Concept.

  • We start with a transcription of an old sitcom, particularly the ones of a "Very Special" nature, wherein the otherwise happy go lucky cast is suddenly faced with an intense situation.
  • I then script out a commentary/ play-by-play of the stage directions and other actions, which often includes contextual and comedic notes on what is happening in the show...
  • Sound effects, transition music and other comedic/editorial sound choices are developed and triggered during the performance
  • We perform the whole thing (comedians, actors, improvisers and me) for a live audience.

As I read the commentary and supply extra direction and misdirection it sometimes leads us to unscripted territory. We use several different comedic tools and vehicles to spice things up from show to show. Sometimes I'll ask a scene to be re-read with different accents, or we'll swap parts, or I'll ask my cast to improvise the whole scene over again with a new input or switch to the attitude.

All that being said, heres the episode specific information:

On this episode I assembled some of the funniest and most talented women I know to bring the script of an episode of "Facts of Life" to life....

As I'll explain in the episode itself we took the scenes in reverse order. I think you'll figure out why as you listen...

It Features the talents of:
Melissa Lamartina
Hather Miles
Allyson Washington
Meg Vidler
Erin Eff
& Sarah Gorman



If the "Knight Riker" Meme mentioned in the opening sounds cool to you, well it is now available on my Threadless Artist Shop.
It's available on a shirt, bathmat, tapestry, coffee mug, water bottle and a few other things...
