There are other projects in the works, including an episode of “More Blackouts”, which will be released in March. Their biggest and most important project to date is the sitcom pilot that is currently in pre-production. Di’s sketch comedy group, Dandy Boy, is writing and starring in a pilot that Eric Richter is directing and filming.
The team is currently trying to reach a meager goal of $5,000.00 to film this pilot. Please donate to the production if you have enjoyed any of Di Billick or Eric Richter’s work. Any donations over $1,000.00 will earn you an Executive Producer credit on the pilot.
Stay tuned for “More Blackouts”, coming soon!
Let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief. The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, or as it’s affectionately known, Sketchfest, is the most fun time a sketch writer and actor will ever have. Oh, and right, the audience too. The audience!
Di Billick was in 3 shows this year, and performed at the performers-only show on both weekends. Along with press that has yet to be released, Di’s group, Unlikely Company, had appearances on Fox, WGN, and CBS, as well as WGN radio.
Unlikely Company will be returning to Stage 773, their resident theater, to open a brand new sketch comedy show in April. Stay tuned here for updates!
Daily Grindhouse has premiered and reviewed I HATE RACCOONS, starring Di Billick and Michael Carey, along with an interview with director Eric Richter.
“Technical work is very strong – which is never a given on low-budget efforts – with some of the trickier lighting elements in the second half (involving a flashlight) being done quite well. Even better is the acting, with both Carey and Billick capably showing both irritation and fear at their eventual fate(s),” Doug Tilley said about the film. He continues, “I was particularly impressed with the quality of the acting in the piece. Frankly, even passable acting in low-budget shots is a rarity, but your performers show surprising comic timing.”
