If you love laughing or making other people laugh, I know you’re going to be at SketchFest 2017! It’s happening this weekend, October 21st at the Doris Duke Theater and October 22nd at Arts at Marks Garage. This part festival, part workshop, fully awesome event is put on every year by my friend Kimee Balmilero, a Hawaii native who has played on Broadway in Mamma Mia and Miss Saigon and is currently killing it as the Medical Examiner on Hawaii 5-0. Her wealth of knowledge and experience draws some of Hawaii’s best talent to Sketchfest every year. Don’t miss your opportunity to network with other local laugh enthusiasts, and hear an exclusive workshop from special guest Kat Burns (from CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend series). I’ll be there this year as part of a Talk Back panel on Sunday Oct 22, 2-3 pm at Arts at Marks (FREE ADMISSION) sharing my story and encouraging you to get started with video. It’s going to be fun answering questions from such a unique cast of characters. I hope to see you there and connect with you in person! If you’re planning to attend, hit me up on social media (just click on my picture below) and let’s connect this weekend.
