With no Big Topic of the Day™, I'm just going to start talking about a part of my life that's wrapping up this week.
For the past two years, I've been involved with a sketch comedy show in Duluth called Kirov By Night (KBN for short, or Que Bien! for Spanish-speaking audiences).
That ends this Friday.
After several years of shows, Duluth's best sketch comedy/late-night talk show hybrid will wrap up, which is going to be sad for just about everyone involved. Much like I feel here at Hockey Wilderness, it was an absolute privilege to work with the group of smart, funny, and talented people that I've gotten to work with. I've greatly appreciated the chance to grow as a writer and performer, growth I owe to the people on the writing staff pushing me to do the best I can.
There will be time to reminisce next week, though. With my last sketch finalized yesterday, there's nothing left but rehearsals, and the finale.
