Talkies is a show where standup comedians work outside of their regular routines; videos, powerpoint presentations, and characters are the deal. Started by George Chen and Anna Seregina, the show has been an anchor of Lost Weekend Video's comedy programming every First Friday.

The Sketchfest edition features Alex Falcone, Keith Lowell Jensen, Kyle Mizono,  Scott Simpson and Scott Vermeire.

 "All together, it was a terrific variety show with some very talented people, done in a small space that embraces risk taking. Well done." - WeHeartMusic $15 21+

Keith Lowell Jensen

Hi. I'm Keith Lowell Jensen. I perform stand up comedy because I have an overwhelming compulsion to share and have found that this is more palatable if I am funny, and because I have not been good at other things I have tried. I hope to also be compassionate, gentle, and kind while doing my part to fight the pigs. | | I have four comedy specials out; To The Moon, Cats Made of Rabbits, Elf Orgy, and Atheist Christmas. I love you.
