Baltimore TV station WJZ 13 stopped by The Big Theater. If you're new to us this segment is a great introduction to everything we do!
You have to really admire the inventors on the televisions Shark Tank. Putting themselves out there with an idea, often with little funding and resources. Believing in a product and the willingness to try to come up with a viable plan. Putting together what they can with what they have. These gritty creators often make a product and iterate, while most of us wouldn't even try. They have the willingness to ask for help. Perhaps that's why we admire the show.
The original Japanese version of the show went by The Tigers of Money. Before the show came to American networks, I recall watching the BBC version called Dragon's Den. Hannah Jeffrey is producing a comedy show inspired by the television hit, as she explains in the below transcript:
For many years we’ve relied on media and strangers visiting school assemblies to teach us valuable lessons.
You probably think I’m talking about hiring BIG to visit your school. You might even expect me to plug that we’re a rostered artist with Young Audiences of Maryland. And yes you're right, we total will do a true and actual educational program that visits your school and does an actual assembly. Sure, you could totally hire us!
However!! That’s not what this post is about. This time we're presenting a comedy show in response to all of the adults who taught us valuable lessons as kids. Producer Alexa Sciuto tells us about the show After School Special and the performers of improv team Ready, Set, NO in the below interview transcript.
