TIM REID as VENUS FLY TRAP. This was not my first attempt at Venus. I filled 3 pages with a bunch of sketches that were completely unsuccessful. This is the first one that is worth saving. Tim Reid was great as Venus. He was one of the straightest characters of the whole cast. His clothes were outrageous, but his personality was pretty normal compared to the caricatured personalities that surrounded him, same with Andy Travis.

This is my first stab at FRANK BONNER as HERB TARLEK from WKRP IN CINCINNATI. The entire cast was memorable, but Herb was a real stand out. He was a jerk character that was likable at times. He was simultaneously loathed and sympathetic. He had some moments of fantastic comedy. His interactions with Jeniffer Marlowe/Loni Anderson were hilariously unforgettable. There are elements of this first sketch that I like and others I need to keep working on.
