Corn Productions 20th Anniversary Show

Corn Productions (located on 4210 N. Lincoln, here in Chicago) is putting on a comedy show featuring sketches from their twenty-year history.  It's hosted by the drag mother/daughter team of Tiff & Mom.  Long-time Corn fans will know that these two can talk about the weather and make it funny (and, probably, offensive).

One of the sketches that's been hand-picked from the Corn vault is a piece I wrote for the Seven Deadly Sins show five years back.  It kind of threw me to realize that it's already been five years since that show ran, as well as to realize that the sketch was well-received enough to warrant a revival.

The show runs Saturdays, starting July 14 and going through August 18.  You can learn more about the show at the Corn Productions website.  As always, if you check it out, let me know what you think.

Saw the show's opening this past Saturday and it was excellent. All the sketches were great and I loved how my sketch on the sin of Sloth got interpreted.

Shlomo Ben, I've been a fan of Rom for years and I was looking for information regarding both the status of Rom's copyright (is it possible to reprint the issues) and efforts to help Bill Mantlo. You might want to check out the Facebook group, Rom's Spaceknights to Benefit Bill Mantlo.
