New sketch from Wendigo + Upcoming Show November 9th

Here’s a video I made for my sketch troupe, Wendigo for our October live show. Our next show is this November 9th at the Magnet theater in NYC. You should come see us! Great!

You can also follow Wendigo on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook to see more sketches in the future, and info on future shows. (In case I forget to mention them here, which I likely will.)

WHAT TIME IS IT?

It is Adventure Time. I’ll let Comics Alliance deliver the news:

“Of all the sentences I’ve read in comics news this week, none have been as much of an emotional rollercoaster as this one: Ryan North is leaving the Adventure Time comic, and will be replaced as writer by Christopher Hastings.”

That’s right! Starting with Issue #36, out this coming January, I’m the new writer on the Adventure Time ongoing series, with art by Zachary Sterling. Ryan North’s a dear friend, and I’m honored to be taking the reins from him. I am also terrified to fill his enormous shoes. Ryan’s Adventure Time run is one of the finest collection of humor comics out there, (multiple awards and the ridiculous sales numbers agree) and he’ll be a tough act to follow.

Happy US Federal Holiday! Comic returns Wednesday.


WENDIGO Sketch Comedy!

If you have been watching this space, you probably know that for a while now I’ve been doing improv comedy in NYC. I love improv, and those of you who were nice enough to come see a show know it was a really good time! But I have decided to take a break from improv to focus more on my writing, but I don’t want to give up working in live comedy. SO GUESS WHAT I STARTED WRITING SKETCH COMEDY. Yes and it turns out I’m good enough at it to get on a Magnet sketch team. We’re called Wendigo, we have a show every month until December (then TWO shows in December). Our first is THIS SUNDAY, September 21st, 7:30PM at the Magnet Theater. (It says New Team Keenan because it hasn’t been updated yet)

The other eight members of Wendigo are all tremendously funny writers and performers, our director is terrific, and we’ve been working very hard for the past few weeks putting together a half-hour sketch show. We’ll be sharing the hour with Baby Shoes, one of my favorite teams, and I know they’ll bring some good comedy too.

If you’re in town, I’d love for you to come see it!

I wrote a sketch about a talking hot dog, and I shall be the voice of the talking hot dog.
