Interview with Jp Boudwin of ‘NOW TIME’

Jp Boudwin is a former member of the already-sorely-missed sketch group Camp Woods.  This Thursday, he’s debuting a new monthly sketch show at L’etage. Guys, the time is here. The time is now. It’s NOW TIME.

WitOut: It’s awesome to see you continuing with a monthly sketch show at L’etage now that Camp Woods Plus! has been retired. What made you decide to keep at it?

Jp Boudwin: Thanks. Helping run Camp Woods Plus once a month was the most fun I had this past year. Too hard to give up. There are also a ton of new Philly sketch groups and they are producing a lot of solid material. They need more shows and more stages. NOW TIME is for them, myself, and anyone who wants to be entertained.

WO: What’s the general format of this show going to be like, and who’s on this first one?

JpB: The first show will be incredible, because it features ManiPedi and The New Dreamz. I’ll also be hosting and doing some sketches. Hopefully not in a boring asshole way. I’m very excited about this show, so probably not.

The format will pretty much be the same as Camp Woods Plus. Two local acts and an out-of -town group is the goal I’m working back to. For the first couple shows it’ll be three local acts. Especially since there are so many. I also don’t alone have the following Camp Woods did. It will take time to build it back up and take on some identity of its own, but I don’t think it’ll take too long.

WO: What qualities do you look for in a sketch group when you’re deciding who you want to book?

JpB: Funny and available. Is this you? Email today! Mostly I want to see something silly, with heart, that’s genius or just anybody trying sketch. If a group is completely new, seeing them at Sketch Up or Shut Up, The Theme Show, or anywhere else helps. I’m already booking in advance so just ask me and I’ll give you some dates. Everyone can email me at jpboudwin@gmail.com or call me at 911.

[Editor’s note: Please don’t call Jp at 911. That number should only be used for emergency purposes. Try Jp at 311 for non-emergencies.]

 

‘NOW TIME’ is this Thursday, February 7th at L’etage (624 S. 6th Street) at 8:3pm. Admission is $10, or $FREE.99 if you’re currently enrolled in a sketch class at Philly Improv Theater.
