“The Monster” – Suspense, Thriller
You’re gonna be lookin over your shoulders with this one!
When you have only five minutes to capture and tell a story, it’s extremely hard to pull off a thriller. But it gives me great pride to say I pulled it off beautifully with this one. “The Monster” is by far my favorite drama sketch in which I actually performed the part of the prisoner in front of a live audience. The sketch shows an interview conducted by a court ordered psychiatrist to see if the criminally accused is legally insane. In the end, the doctor is put on edge as she encounters the likes of something she’s never seen before.
“The Dr. Tobias Show – Domestic Abuse” – Comedy
The Dr. Tobias is a character I wrote to pick on talk show hosts who don’t know how to control their show. I originally meant for this to be just one of several Dr. Tobias’ skits, but then I quit the acting class. This particular skit was written to parody the drama around Tiger Wood and his wife attacking him. So you have 3 main players for this sketch. A husband, a wife, and the clueless, highly animated Dr. Tobias. The studio audience is played by the audience of your acting class.The husband is on the show seeking help on how to deal with his abusive wife. But when Dr. Tobias allows the wife onto the set…things escalate quickly.
Sketch contains a mild amount of obscene language
