Friday (7/23/10) 8:21pm - ... wherein Peter writes a sketch for Sketch War.

Sketchwar started out as an online weekly sketch-writing group.  Every week, participants would write comedy sketches about that week's topic; at the end of the week, we'd read each other's sketches, comment, and perhaps bicker about who wrote the best sketch that week. 

These days, though, I'm the only one holding down the fort, thinking up topics and writing up sketches.  If you're curious about participating, drop me a line.  This page has my list of upcoming topics (next week's topic is "Puppets").

This week's Sketch War topic was "Heat Wave", and I just wrote a tiny little blackout sketch, because I'm lazy.

               Sketchwar
               Heat Wave Edition
               "A Brief PSA"

               FADE IN:  



               EXT. PARK - DAY

               Clearly the hottest day of the year.

               A LOUT stands near a bench and holds forth.

               Several LISTENERS sit on the bench, silently suffering in the
               heat.

                                   LOUT
                         You call this hot?  This is
                         nothing!  Where I'm from, it gets
                         this hot all the time!

               A SMALL BOY carry a wiffle-bat approaches, and watches the
               lout.

                                   LOUT
                         And do we complain about it?  Hell,
                         no!  It's just you locals that ca--

               WHAM!

               The small boy nails the lout in the crotch with the bat.

               The man crumples.



               TITLE CARD

               Reads "Don't be that guy."

                                   VOICEOVER
                         Don't be that guy.  This message
                         brought do you by the Association
                         for Not Being a Dick.



               EXT. PARK - CONTINUOUS

               The lout groans on the ground.

               The small boy runs off.

                                                              FADE OUT.
