Sketches

Channelling my nuttiness and need for laughs into bloggy content and essays

2007 to 2010 (my teens) brought an enjoyable YouTube run through which I paved a little lane for myself with absurd sketches and vlog-style videos, where I tried nutty characters and found my footing improvising before the camera.  Much of my material was vulgar, unrefined, or both, but if anything the classic “Gurskyman” videos were lightly funny pieces of time that illustrated a kid with a weirdly strong comedic sensibility for his age; one with a gift for improv, a sharp comedic vision, and a passion for all areas of the creative process that altogether may take somebody places.   

The early YouTube streak didn’t amount to much, as I distanced from the platform and focused more on writing as college approached.  Since those younger years, however, I’ve continued performing (formerly stand-up, and in more recents years improv,) and I still get around to shooting a sketch now and again.  I’ve lent my knack for joke-writing and painting pictures in script punch-ups for other’s projects, and I hope to pursue far more screenwriting.

The Gurskyman Classics

A light helping of the OG joints.  Most of the original videos that helped build a fanbase were accidentally deleted in high school, but we’re fortunate a few still stand.

I sprinkle short sketches and additional goofy content across Twitter, Instagram, and video apps like Byte. Much more to be seen beyond here, but I shared a few for you.
