As you know, I made my TV acting debut on The Nite Show With Danny Cashman last night, appearing in a sketch that I wrote for the show.
As you can see from this photo, I was escorted off the set after the sketch. I’m pretty sure that was in the script, but then again, it might have been done as a reaction to my acting skills (or lack thereof)…
Danny was nice enough to make the sketch available to share, so here it is for your viewing pleasure, Modern Philosophers.
The sketch was supposed to end with another audience member asking Danny: “So do I still get to play poker with Stephen King after the show?”, but Danny decided to cut the line because it would have been too complicated to plant another actor in the audience, mic him, and get a camera out there for coverage.
I think the sketch is still funny, but it would’ve been hilarious if that line had been used. How can you go wrong with mentioning Stephen King in a sketch?
Let me add a quick shout out to Dave Forbes Brown and Joy Sinclair, who also appeared in the sketch as the lovely, lobster craving couple.
Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
