One idea I had as we brainstormed ten raw sketch ideas, while working in pairs, was "very good," according to my teacher. So good, in fact, that Steve Carell wrote it about ten years ago. Basic premise - a wife is prodding her husband to take care of some boring household chores, and each time he responds: "I can't (menial domestic task), because (global political issue)." You know, "Honey, I can't take out the trash, children are starving in Uganda." Goddamn Carell. Last class the same thing happened, but it was Stephen Colbert who beat me to the punch, also by about ten years. Big, rich, successful jerks! Someday I'll catch up to them.
Anyway, I'm on leave for a little while, hopefully back online around November 1, maybe sooner. Check back with me then. Take care, faithful readers.
