I received a message to submit to a television network (I am omitting the network, though you can narrow it down to a few with the description) and did so last week. The request was as follows: We are looking for smart, edgy, viciously funny writers to create digital short content that would air on various ___ platforms. This is a paid opportunity and an amazing chance to get your work seen on an international television network. Content created if contracted must appeal to ____ Networks demographic and their sensibilities and feature at least one person of color. There was an urgency to this posting so as soon as I got home I immediately had 5 sketches of mine that I wanted to submit, which I did. Here they are for your pleasure. I would put these five sketches (just 5 of several dozen I have made over the last few years) with commercial breaks against any of the falsely-subversive humor of Key & Peele, but I am biased (but no hammy intros to sketches has to at least play in my favor). If I do not receive a good word about this, however, I really want to know who submitted and got the job(s). Well, enjoy these videos for the first time or again. Think of these five sketches as the pilot of my non-existent show “JL & Cauvin”
