Remember those sitcoms you and your family watched growing up and you just couldn’t get enough of? Cosby…Cheers…Whitney…Dynasty…A Movie…Cosby… Well, Delicious Moments (Ithamar Enriquez and Brian Shortall) doesn’t. BUT, they decided to make their own live sitcom, with everything you love about sitcoms: Opening Credits, Furniture, Snake Monsters AND a Wacky Neighbor to be played by a very celebrated and respected local Austin actor. “Taped” before a “live” studio “aud”ience, Delicious Moments is aware of itself, the audience and everything else. Watch Delicious Moments break the fifth wall.
Ithamar and Brian’s credits include The Second City, IO, UCB, The Office, Raising Hope, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Key and Peele, Supernews, Punk’d, The Promotion, Miss Congeniality II, The Tonight Show and the television. Delicious Moments blew the doors off the place last year and we can’t wait to see their new show tonight. We asked them for some inside deliciousness (eww).
How did you get involved in sketch comedy?
Ithamar Enriquez: I’ve always loved comedy and started doing improv in college. Once I found out that Chicago was the place to be for improv and sketch, I moved there and took classes at Second City. I eventually wrote and performed at Second City and the rest…is…social studies.
Brian Shortall: I’m from Chicago, so the Second City was close by. I never had the courage to actually try sketch comedy until after college. I always loved sketch. Once I studied it, there was no looking back.
