Short, funny.

Anchorman.

The full version took about a week.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to count.

Getting harsh feedback from people who thought that God was off limits in terms of comedy.

Creating beats and playing basketball.

I had a very short comedy script, and this festival provided a great opportunity to have it performed for the public. The positive feedback for the full length version of the script has been very positive for the most part, and I’m extremely honored by it all.
