Please welcome back John D. Babcock III from Sketchworks Comedy. John last appeared with local actor, Dan Triandiflou (Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, Stranger Things, I, Tonya & more) and returns this time with Sketchworks co-owner, Brian Troxell. The guys join us to talk about their musical "Grease" parody, "Vape" and the legal troubles they face due to "Grease" and their overly litigious owners.
“Vape is a parody. It reconsiders the misogyny and nostalgia for the 1950s through the #metoo lens. Significantly, it was written for comedic purposes. We are absolutely within our rights to write and perform a parody of Grease,” said Sketchworks Comedy writer and performer John D. Babcock III, who also portrays “Doody” in the parody. “I understand it is the point of view of Concord Theatricals that Vape is ‘derogatory' toward Grease and is not to be staged. That may be their opinion but does not give them the authority to suppress Vape and prevent it from being performed.” Babcock is also an active member of the Dramatist Guild of America.
