43. R.I.P. iO West

Fish Out Of Water: A Sketch Writing Podcast

play

02/20/18 • 59 min

iO west is dead.

Jeremiah and Ryan were both performers there for years and we will miss it dearly. We decided to scream into the black void that is the internet on this week's episode. We both loved the opportunities that iO gave us, we loved the community and we loved our teams. We gained many, many things from the theatre and we owe it a lot. We get into all positives and negatives on the podcast and if gossiping like high school kids is your thing then this is the episode for you. #RIPIOWEST

41. Henry Kaiser and the FOOW Pod renaissance

01/30/18 • 77 min

Boy Howdy is it good to be back!

Jeremiah and Ryan took a 4 month hiatus to make some videos, work some jobs and kick some ass and we're all out of video ideas. So here we are, ready to do season 2 of the Fish Out Of Water podcast!

We got really lucky to have our first guest of the new season be Henry Kaiser. This is actually the lost episode from season 1 but we wanted to start here because it was such a good episode. Moving forward we are switching up the format to feel like more of writers room where we have our favorite writers and best friends come on and share sketch notes, stories, and all the crazy bullshit we do in the real world. We are going to still be accepting user submitted sketches to get notes from our esteemed colleagues and we will also be pitching ideas just like we always have.

If you have ever wondered what a sketch team meeting feels like or want to get some quick tips to make all your sketches better then stay tuned because it's about to get real. Stupid. It's about to get real stupid. But also with notes. It's about to get stupid AND WITH NOTES.

Whatever just subscribe to us HERE

We are lucky to have Jesse Klein, writer for the Pack house team Haymaker, with us today. Jesse talks with us about idea generation and always being prepared with several pitches and sketch packets for every occasion. Another thing that Jesse shows us is a way in generate an infinite number of sketch premises and honestly it's pretty great. On the show we came up with over half of a dozen sketch premises in less than 5 minutes. The episode is worth the listen for that part alone.

Jesse has written on house teams DJ Faucet, Mr. Worm and others at iO West and is also a contributing writer for Prairie Home Companion. He has studied at The Upright Citizens Brigade, Groundlings, Second City, iO West and the Pack Theatre. He also on every podcast that has ever been made.

We also want to thank Josh Puterbaugh for letting us read their sketch this week.

Zora Bikangaga may possibly be our most interesting guest to date. This man has been on "This American life" because he pretended to be an Ugandan international student for an entire semester. After committing to the bit for so long he followed his new found love of acting and writing down to Los Angeles. I say down because he's from Northern California.

Mr. B was a middle school teacher and a social issues theatre performer and talks about using some those real situations to create characters as well as write premises. Which just goes to prove that living a real life is just as important to comedy as being a comedian.

Zora wrote, created and starred in HOA alongside the likes of Horatio Sanz and Cheri Oteri, he freelances for Cracked, he has worked on Drunk History, Adam Ruins Everything and he is a writer for the Upright Citizens Brigade maude team "New Deal".

Listen to the this American life episode HERE
