The Bad Eggs, by The Bad Eggs Writers...
Good actors, but writing needs work
Wednesday, August 11, 2004
1.0
I have to say that all the actors in this show have promise, but the writing on this show was not something to write home about at all. I'd actually rate the performance more like a 3 (there were a couple very good sketches in there), but this board seems so packed with friends of the group that I figure I need to do something to draw attention.

Truth is that the writing seemed very, very juvenile, like they're aiming for a middle school audience. The humor was over-the-top and lacking in clever verbal comedy (with the exception of the Matrix sketch). It seemed to lean far too much on the strength of the actors, especially the skinny blonde guy, to carry writing that did not vary much in style from skit to skit. Nearly every skit starts off promising, but then drags on the joke far too long. Many skits have the actors break out of character, killing the momentum of some scenes.

But I want to end on a good note. There were flashes of writing talent in nearly every sketch, and if the writer can focus himself a bit more, he could really make something good. I'm interested to see if they'll be back next year.
