Everybody meet Josh Edwards! He's our latest Intern of the Week! Josh is one of those people who is always happy and smiling. He carries a positive energy with him everywhere he goes. Every time I see Josh, I think, "Hmm... is he growing a mustache?" Josh likes to live life on the edge. He is currently taking TWO classes at the same time! (Crazy!) If you see him interning, introduce yourself! He has plenty of smiles and anecdotes to share, and he's great at making new friends. Learn more about Josh by reading this excerpt from his personal diary, which I secretly photocopied before putting the diary back under his pillow.
Let’s take a walk.

Before I dive in and baptize us all in Oprah’s collard green juice, I feel it is important that you the reader, trust me. It is not my aim to point my finger and accuse non-people of color of being the enemy. Nor do I desire to hurt feelings or make others feel uncomfortable. Oh, and I am in no way THE spokesperson for minorities (I feel that I have to give that disclaimer or else I’ll be dragged to the depths of the sunken place). I’m just trying to start a conversation, you know, the way you do when you’re finally able to sit at the grown folks table at thanksgiving.
Everybody meet Drew! He's our latest Intern of the Week! Drew is no stranger to the DCH intern program, and is always willing to help others feel welcome and supported. When it comes to answering questions, lending a hand, or even covering shifts, Drew is the man! If you see him interning on Wednesday nights (look for the guy singing or telling jokes!), introduce yourself! You can also learn more about Drew by reading this compelling interview we had eight feet away from one another via walkie talkies.
Have you ever been sucked into small talk about a film you’ve never seen? Or showed your face at a book club meeting for a novel you skimmed? There’s power in faking it, but what happens when you BREAK it? In this interview, we sit down with a few of the cast and writers of the newest Dallas Comedy House mainstage sketch revue, Fake It ‘Til You Break It. This sketch comedy show features a stellar cast (Andrew Plock, Danny Neely, Emily Gee, Julia Estelle, Kate Grogan, and Patrick Hennessy), two writers (Ashley Bright and Brian Harrington), and is directed by Cody Hofmockel.
