Director Statement

On my Love for Writing Comedy-Dramas and Absurd Dark-Comedies:

Drama and Comedy are polar opposites; an accident waiting in the wings. It’s like getting married on a whim to a stripper in Vegas, impregnating her, and having to pay child support. It just isn’t supposed to happen that way. 

But sometimes when done right and properly courted, Drama will give in to Comedy’s pleas for attention, affection, and validation. After all, Comedy is the truth of who we are at our core – unfiltered and unadulterated. Vulnerable, but willing to try. It exposes our faults in a way that lessens the blow, when reality hits and everything comes crashing down. There is hope and authenticity in comedy that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

I’d like to think we wear the mask in Drama, but it is only in Comedy that we take it off.
