is a writer, director and teacher for the Second City Training Center
and Columbia College Chicago
. While in the classroom, Janes always had advice for what his students should avoid
. His best advice on how to be a better writer? Write. Every. Day.
And that's what he decided to do starting January 19, 2010
, for 365 days.
Of course the idea of creating a new piece a theatre daily isn't new
. However, some have argued
that writing a new piece of comedy every day is a different beast altogether. During the process, some sketches were made into video
, made for radio, and even performed
. Now that the project is over, the entire lot has been rewritten, published
, and performed
. Even if it's art, it isn't above lampooning
Janes is well known in the Chicago comedy scene and even received an Emmy for his work on a children's show in Cincinnati, but to the rest of the world he is probably better known as Raul
from You Don't Know Jack.
