You guys are hilarious! (Really, I mean it....)

Today was the deadline for submission of the 100-word essays (if, as some of you pointed out, an essay can BE 100 words) that served as your application to participate in the Comedy Sitcom course next weekend.

We got about 100 entries for the eight seats in the course. And we'll sit down tomorrow -- me and a few of our funniest faculty -- and try to decide (it's going to be such a difficult decision -- many of these entries are actually pretty hilarious...)

I wish we could open it up to everyone who wants to participate...I'm already thinking about how we're going to continue to provide this kind of opportunity on a regular basis. In fact, I talked to Dan Heffner of the Saw movies today; Saw III broke box office records over the weekend (ick ick ick). He wants to come back to Park in January, maybe to do a short course on producing....I'll keep you posted...)

Thanks for all your enthusiasm about the comedy course; you guys are the best.

Can the top 8 essays be posted afterward so we can get an idea of what was being looked for? If so, that would be amazing. : )

I agree (maybe some runners up as well?)

That is a good idea, do it.

The faculty have chosen the 8 students, and we'll be posting their 'essays' as soon as they've all agreed to participate.
