Inside the Ladies Writing Room – Toronto Sketchfest

5 Mar

What a panel! Moderated by Michelle Daly (Senior Director, Comedy Content CBC) we talked our faces off about what it’s like being a lady writer in comedy. BUT – everyone had great advice for the entire audience about how to pitch, get your material in front of the right executives, conduct yourself in a writer’s room, etc.

Plus I am now going to get so much free coffee from brain-pickers!

What a crazy bunch o’ fun working on this show was. We shot four episodes in March of 2016, then CBC Comedy got involved and we shot another two in November.

Watch all six episodes HERE on the CBC Comedy website.

Things I learned on The Smartass-ociates:

  • Ottawa has very politically savvy audiences. Weird.
  • Olympic Speed-skater Ivanie Blondin is really good at curling my hair
  • I will never be able to afford a home in Vancouver. Or Toronto. Maybe Sudbury
  • It’s hard to improvise a pitch to David Chilton in the ‘Lizard’s Pit’
  • Pouring maple syrup and chocolate sauce on DeAnne Smith is tasty fun
  • It’s pronounced ‘sen-shee-ant’ pipeline, not ‘sen-tee-ant’ pipeline
  • Never golf with Dave Hemstead
  • Jon Steinberg cares a lot about birds
  • VIA Rail trains make an excellent writer’s room
  • People get really excited about free mugs
  • If you get drunk on scotch and pickle juice after the first big day of taping, your nickname will forever be Pickle Juice. PJ for short.
