BLACK MEN CRY TOO  | Open: 03/19/16 Close: 03/19/16
In 1947, Emerie Jones returned home to his native North Carolina as a war hero. But for many in his community little had changed and their war against poverty and discrimination had just begun. Divided by race, Emerie finds himself torn between the women he loves, obligation and responsibility.
THE ANSWER-KILLING QUESTION BUYS A CRISIS  | Open: 10/03/14 Close: 10/26/14
The Answer-Killing Question Buys a Crisis is biting satire on educational institutions at all levels. Although Western society has long promoted institutionalized education, there have been relatively few inquiries into the nature of this bureaucratic form of learning and how it forces students and teachers to maintain arbitrary standards of knowledge. The play chronicles the struggles of a courageous university student as he rebels against his school's corrupt totalitarian regime and its imposition of a single answer to all possible questions. The school reflects the singular mindset of society as a whole, and the student's professors consider his actions to be criminal. He soon realizes that fighting for his principles is only the beginning; he will soon be fighting for his life, as well. To make matters worse, his best friend and long-time co-conspirator may not be who he says he is. The play is a twenty-first century hybrid of Nineteen Eighty-Four and Dead Poets Society.

Cihangir Duman directs a cast of 4, including Rafa Pérez, Andy Phillips, Heather Shisler, and Dan Kellmer.

The Atomic View Motel  | Open: 06/27/13 Close: 06/30/13

 SKETCHTOWN is a raucous sketch comedy spectacle that can only be described as “Outrageous.”

BOURBON WHIZ is our first musical web series based on the classic Wizard of Oz.  We follow Dotty as she tries to buy alcohol on a Sunday in a dry county, then gets denied and ends up taking some magical mushrooms. She gets whisked away in a tornado to the crazy old land of New Orleans.  Be with her when she meets the crackhead, strippers, Liars, and Beggars, and Beer OH MY!! 

About the Company: Sketchy Characters

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.
