35. Billy Merritt talks about finding the deeper meaning in your sketches


illy Merritt graced FOOW this week to talk about scientology, not writing for the Denny’s Twitter feed and finding the deeper meaning in your sketches. We discussed writing material that appeals to all ages (and the fact that all kids across the world laugh at fart jokes) and using your “where” to help find the deeper meaning in your sketches if you’re stuck while writing.

Billy has been a performer, teacher and director with the UCB Theatre since it first opened in New York. He is a founding member of improv groups The Swarm, The Stepfathers and The Smokes.
