Ah, the holidays. A time for reflecting and giving thanks.
What is a person like me thankful for (aside from all the wonderful people who participated in the 4th Annual International Subscribe to Matt Aromando (and his email list) Week)? I’d say I’m thankful for my perception that my comedy career might actually be going somewhere! I had a great 2016 as far as that’s concerned. Perhaps it’s chaos that drives my sense of humor.

I was a part of a bunch of really cool shows, from The PIT’s New York Improv Festival to a series of New Team Harold shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. That being said, I’ve got a staged sketch, called Lifeguards, that I’ve meant to share for a couple of months now. It’s no more or less relevant than it was in October when it was shot—given it’s, as the title suggests, about lifeguards. The sketch is starring myself and Randy McKay, written by Everett Cox, directed by Tom Kim, and performed at the Magnet Theater in the show Ringers. Enjoy!
