Comedy Festival Testimonial – October 16 2018

I want to thank you immensely for the feedback! I’m truly grateful. Feedback and reviews are the main reasons I submit to competitions such as this one. I’m most pleased with this one in particular because the reviewer took the time to make suggestions as to how I could make the script better, most notably with some of my character relationships.

COMEDY Festival Testimonial – October 15 2018

Gratified that people seemed to get it, and like it. I like hearing the comparisons to Modern Family. I made this to be entertaining and I’m so glad that people seemed to be entertained.

COMEDY Best Scene Reading of The Masses by Toni Nagy

The Masses is a post-partisan, omni-racial, multi-gender, quasi-radical, sketch comedy show that represents the perspective of the artistic and creative counter-culture that is actually the mainstream. The tone will be the “Twilight Zone” meets sketch comedy – creating scenarios that are rooted both in reality and in our surreal dystopian not-too-distant future. Centered on a cast that will range in ages from 18 to 80 and will be so racially/sexually/bodily diverse that Benetton ads will cower in shame; The Masses will contain social commentary peppered with absurdity and pure hilarity.

CAST LIST:

Bill: Liam Kinahan
The Vagina: Mandy May Cheetham
Narrator: Sean Ballantyne
Charles: Adrian Currie
Will: John Leung

Comedy Festival Testimonials – October 3 2018

Terrific reading of my screenplay. Please thank the actors for me! The initial feedback was encouraging and it also appropriately threw light on some needs of the script.
– Robert Tolz (Screenplay, Renassance Man)

Absolutely outstanding notes and I can’t thank you enough. Obviously Charlie Kaufman are difficult waters to sail but I am determined to rock on. The first thing I throw out of the boat is He Who Appears To Be He. But a girl can dream can’t she? Count on one thing you will be receiving my rewrite with a boatload of gratitude.
– Kelly Karam (Screenplay, Ole: Rising Above Mith)

Best Scene COMEDY Short Screenplay of How Did We Get Here? by Travis Darkow & Chris Isaacson

Francis, a pessimist, and Chester, a happy go lucky pot head, struggle with two jobs they hate, all while Chester bounces his insane ideas off of Francis on how to get themselves out of their jobs. The only problem? One lacks motivation, and the other is almost always stoned. Francis drives a septic truck, and Chester works at a second hand sex toy store. How could it get any worse?

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Mandy May Cheetham
Chester: Adrian Currie
Francis: Liam Kinahan
