A Societal Addiction


I’m involved with a workshop developing a sketch packet for Saturday Night Live.  One of our projects was to write a cold opener for the show.  If you don’t watch the show, who’d blame you – gods above it sucks anymore, the cold opener is the sketch at the beginning of the show that always ends with, “Live from New York.  It’s Saturday Night.”

This was my first draft for a cold opener.

Jonathan is a degreed physicist and engineer by day, and amateur entertainer in the evenings.  He enjoys studying and performing improvised comedy and writing sketch comedy.  When he's had enough of listening to people complain, you can find him underwater scuba diving where he can't hear you.  It's like space.  No one can hear you, but not because of a vacuum.  No.  It's because you can't talk.  So it's like space, but without the radiation and deadly aliens that burst out of your chest.
