So after a couple of rather forgettable homeworks at my sketch-writing class, and a couple I have been too lazy to post, I finally wrote something I like. This one’s a desk piece. The sort of stuff you find on shows like Letterman or The Tonight Show or all of those shows I’ve never really paid much attention to.
The homework was to make three jokes, preferably about current events and then do a possibly recurring segment, maybe a funny list of things or some such.
So I made three jokes, one about Microsoft Surface, one about Vatican saying the media is an agent of the devil, like Dan Brown, and one about some Michigan senator being silenced for use of the word ‘vagina’. Then I did a list of ‘Products that seem to exist in movie universes’.
As before, I write it on Rawscripts, so I have to export it to PDF to show it to the rest of the world. I hate that, but until I get motivated enough to write it in LaTeX and then export to HTML, you’ll have to make do with this.
Here you go: Desk Piece. I’d love your feedback.
