I'm looking for comedy that has universal implications for the audience, as opposed to comedy that is uni-cultural.
New York, New York (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
The 6th Annual International Sketch Comedy Championships is taking place on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at 8:45 PM at Triad Stage 72 and will be featuring some of the world's best sketch comedy groups who will compete to win the coveted title which will entitle the winning group to a wide array of career-making opportunities. Who will leave the competition with the title will be a decision that Louis E. Perego Moreno, better known as Tio Louie, will make, along with two other undisclosed judges.
Tio Louie is an interactive content producer and educator who for the past 32 years has been the President of SKYLINE FEATURES, a bilingual (English and Spanish-language) multimedia and educational production company developing documentaries, television programming and advertising commercials featuring Latinos, Blacks, Women, Urban Youth and LGBT. He has trained 1,500 Latino & Black Youth over 10 years to produce 70 short documentaries, including having produced and directed Latina Confessions (2010) and co-produced of American Dreams Deferred (2013) which aired on PBS nationally.
A Cuban/Argentine born and raised in the Bronx, Tio Louie would like to see a “cross-action of diversity in regards to gender and cultural backgrounds” of the competing sketch comedy groups. A well-educated storyteller that has traveled all over the world and is fluent in 5 languages, Tio Louie is “looking for comedy that has universal implications for the audience, as opposed to comedy that is uni-cultural”.
