I have been a mentor with Young Storytellers Foundation for only two semesters, but I have already been lucky enough to be paired up with a young writer with the chops to make it to Hollywood.
Many thanks to all the people who bought tickets to support a great organization and a fun evening, and special thanks to the actors and comedians who made it a night to remember. Getting a chance to banter with Patton Oswalt and Dana Gould, however briefly, was surreal. Randy and Jason Sklar were fantastic hosts, and Oscar Nunez from The Office was wildly funny.
I know it was nerve wracking for my student, Alek, to have his Romantic Comedy “The Life of a Blob” performed live, but he had a fantastic time and his family was very proud.
I’m looking forward to the fall and a chance to mentor again.
