Schad, Like Tracy Chapman, Talks about the Revolution

We tour colleges. We sometimes teach workshops. Those workshops are all about writing sketch comedy in a quick, concise manner. It has all the other stuff in it too, but this is the backbone. It’s usually an hour or so and it is sometimes tough to tell if the students were into it or severely bored or just biding time til they could hit the bong again. We just got a great e-mail from Max at Carleton College that calms our fears. It’s about a new show they are trying out:

This is an entire play that we’ve written, using the very techniques you guys taught us! It’s historic because such a show (written and performed all in 9 weeks, entirely by students) has never been attempted at this school before. Never. We just wanted to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. So if Schadenfreude is ever feeling down, feeling like you have no purpose in the world, just remember that in a little college town in Northfield, MN, you helped some upstart comedians get their start and make history in their corner of the world.
