"Nikola Tesla meets Thomas Edison" Competitive Erotic Science Fan Fiction! by Mary Van Note ( maryvannote )

This was The Competitive Erotic SCIENCE Fan Fiction show filmed at The Academy of Sciences for SF Sketchfest 2014. The funny thing was that everyone else on the show did erotica based on science fiction and I was the nerd that did erotica based on science! Science history!

I performed in the stage reading of Shakes the Clown as Ho Ho the Clown, a role originally played by my comedy hero, Paul K of the Fake Gallery. Original cast members at the reading were Bobcat Goldthwait, Julie Brown, Tom Kenney, Florence Henderson, and Dan Spenser. Laraine Newman impersonated the late La Wanda Page, Ric Overton did Paul Dooley, and Kevin Pollak did Robin Williams. He sat next to me, and after saying “Whoa!,” turned to me, pointed to the script, and said, “It really says ‘Whoa!’ here.”

Thanks to Cole at Sketchfest and Caitlin Gill for getting other roles cast with San Francisco talent (like me, thanx!), alongside Polyanne McIntosh and Josh Androsky.

Hoping this was recorded and soon put up on SF Sketchfest’s YouTube Channel. In the meanwhile, watch the original movie on Crackle (and Earth Girls Are Easy on YouTube).
