Sketch comedy has been around for a long time, in some form or another. Short farces would be put on before longer, more serious pieces as far back as the middle ages. In the U.S., Vaudeville had a great many scenes which would be called sketch today, and many performers like the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges got their starts doing these short skits in front of live audiences. And of course, some comedians did sketches in the golden age of radio. But for our purposes, sketch comedy was really formed as a separate entity with the birth of television. With programmers struggling to find acts to fill so much time on the air, they turned to great radio comedians like Jack Benny and Sid Caesar to create variety shows that could keep audiences entertained. The most common act was the sketch. In America, shows with sketches have been running basically continuously since the birth of television, from Your Show of Shows to Carol Burnett to Laugh-in to Saturday Night Live.

Landed 2 movie roles... Thank you ExploreTalent... Christina landed 2 Feature Film roles. These are independent movies that will be shown in all the major International Film Festivals. She just joined ExploreTalent and already has more opportunities than we ever imagined. An elite modeling management agency in New York contacted us after seeing Christina's profile on ExploreTalent. A casting director personally asked Christina to audition personally for both a TV SHOW and a Music Video. A producer/director from Tampa requested a dancing video of Christina for a short he is producing. We are actually overwhelmed by the response we have gotten from working with ExploreTalent Casting Directors and Producers. Thank you again. You are the BEST, Christina McGill, Actress/Model & Jeanne McGill, Mother.
