Mark Rennie is the director of UCB Maude team “Karate Karate” and he is also one of the creators of the popular web series “Gay of Thrones” on Funny or Die. Mark was kind enough to come in and meet with us and talk about finding our personal voices. It was a good discussion about how we should be writing what makes us laugh and writing what we want to see on a stage. He has many great ideas about comedy and my personal favorite was “who cares what assholes think?” Who cares, indeed Mark. Who cares indeed.
