Of course our show "The Union: A Very Civil War" has been the main thing we've been talking about lately (if you haven't seen it yet, please check it out. Only two more chances!), but per usual we are busy with lots of other stuff.
Corey is directing a Triple Feature show. These are twenty minute shows that go up as part of a series at The Annoyance Theater. This one is called "Cougars." It's a fun, campy musical written by our friend Gillian. She's even written a part for me, the spicy Latina. I know... quite the stretch. You can see it on Wednesdays at 8pm Oct 28th and Nov 4th.
We're of course doing our regular Laugh Out Loud shows in Schaumburg. Corey has been traveling a lot with them. My crazy busy wedding schedule makes it tough for me to do the away shows, but there are other fun new shows going up. The theater is adding Thursday night shows including a musical improv show (which I'm directing).
Corey and I are both focusing more on trying to book commercial work. I have two new agents! Corey is meeting with a new one next week and we're both being sent out on more auditions.
I'm also the new writer for Best Church of God, a hit satire show. I'm extremely proud to be part of this group. I first saw the show last year and the critics are right, it's HILARIOUS. It's a little creepy how accurate it portrays this parody of a church. I knew I had to be a part of it. Initially I'm going to be focusing on writing web content, but may expand out more from there. Here are a few of the articles I've written that have already gone up.

Our sketch group, The Union, has a show opening at Donny's Skybox at Second City. It's on Thursday nights at 10:30pm, starting this coming Thursday, September 10th and running for 5 weeks, through October 8th. This show is directed by our friend (and Jeff nominated!) Amanda Blake Davis, who you may recognize from the Second City e.t.c. stage. We think this show's pretty funny and we'd love it if you can make it.
We've also made some short videos to help promote the show, and the first one is posted below. Tell your friends and pass it around. Let's make this thing viral!
