JFL Galas

30 Jun

Every once in a while, life gives you what I call a ‘Pony Day.’

Here me out. So… if you subscribe to the whole ‘life is a gift’ theory – then every day is like unwrapping a present, right? Most of the time, that day unwraps and is kinda boring. Like you’re getting socks. Cool cool, we all need socks. But THEN… some days, a phone call or email will make the day unwrap itself with a huge surprise. Like you just got given a pony.

I was in the Calgary airport leaving the Banff World Media Festival, where I’d written the Rockie Awards Gala monologue for Anthony Anderson (Blackish). JFL producer Bruce Hills was in the audience – he loved the monologue – and hired me to write for the JFL Galas. THAT was a ‘Pony Day.’

Along with Dean Jenkinson, I got to write the Gala scripts for Laverne Cox and Jane Krakowski. It was my first time at JFL. Hopefully not my last.
