Where dreams go to work!
Kimee Balmilero here of Improvhi.com. Before moving back home to the islands I was deep into studying improv and sketch comedy at The Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles. When I decided to come back to Hawaii I wanted to keep that passion going...that's why I started improvhi.com. I knew that there were other companies already in existence..and I wanted to help add to their awesomeness. Our website features events from other improv companies around the island and last year we started producing a sketch comedy show called, "The Scratch Paper Sketch Comedy Show." A lot of folks got inspired writing and performing and have even gone off and started their own shows. A BIG GOAL of mine is to do a sketch comedy festival here in Hawaii this year. Ambitious I know..but I'm an overachiever;)
Anyhoo, I've only really reached out to the improv community and not really local actors. Is there anyone out there that would be interested in writing or performing sketch comedy? OUr next show is on January 29th at Arts at Marks Garage. Would love to see more writers involved. Would you be interested? Do you write now? Do you WANT to write?
