This spring, I directed an episode of Die Laughing at Emerson College. The episode aired live on April 12, 2012. This final cut is edited down for time to meet station requirements.
About Die Laughing:
The Spring 2012 semester's Kevin Bright Workshop class was pitted with the task of reinventing a past production. Initially produced two years prior, Die Laughing is and was a live, multi-camera stand-up comedy showcase, featuring local Boston talent telling jokes to a live studio audience.
This year, we are revamping the show, adding an energetic host and producing multiple episodes, as though Die Laughing was a national comedy series. We want to bring new, more interactive elements to the standard comedy showcase, incorporating the audience as much as possible, and introducing the hottest new comedians to young audiences.
