Sketchy Characters Productions is a New Orleans-based company with a passion for bringing comedy to your computer screen and soon to the big screen. Our group originally formed as an improv troupe in 2007. We performed in the French Quarter on a weekly basis for just under a year before deciding to begin filming sketches. At that point, our productions became more elaborate and we incorporated street dancers, music, burlesque, live comedy and filmed sketches. As our fan base grew, so did our desire to push ourselves to higher levels.
In recent years we have delved into other forms like short film and webisode series. We continue to hone the art of pooling our resources and talents to create comedy magic with the look and feel of big budget productions. Our beloved city continues to provide us with an amazing backdrop and material for years to come. Here, we find ourselves surrounded by great talent and ambition and, with that, we continue to grow.
We have had performers come and go, but our core group has held strong. Our comedic writers are some of the best New Orleans has to offer. Our actors have been seen in several big budget films and television shows including: The Walking Dead, Green Lantern, Treme, Prison Break, Bad Lieuteneant: Port of Call New Orleans and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, just to name a few. Our crew members have proven to be invaluable through their dedication and knowledge of their craft.
We remain committed to bringing our viewers edgy comic parodies in a style that pays homage to Mel Brooks. Our goal is to produce feature films that will leave our audience in stitches.
Check out our collection of filmed sketches, Life on Bourbon. We are currently in post production for our short film, Chronicles of Count Jeb, which is a quirky vampire comedy. We are also in post for our webisode series, Bourbon Whiz, where the magic of The Wizard of Oz meets the streets of the French Quarter.
