Courting Sketchfest: Viva Variety Reunion — What Happened to Viva Variety?
The cast of Viva Variety — Johnny Blue Jeans (Michael Ian Black), Meredith Laupin (Thomas Lennon) and the former Mrs. Laupin (Kerri Kenney-Silver) — discuss what happened to their Comedy Central show at the Viva Variety Reunion at the Eureka Theater, part of the 10th Annual SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, January 29, 2011.
This was my first year working at Sketchfest in a non-volunteer capacity. I had also started a new job about three months earlier and was too scared to request any days off. For three weeks I would get to a venue around noon, go through rehearsals and performances, get home around 2:30 a.m., leave for work at about 4:30 a.m. and then head back to the city and do the whole thing over again.
