Carolyn Meeks’ Video Diary – Jenn Dodd

 

Jenn Dodd is an entire sketch comedy troupe in one smart, riotous little package. She is premiering her new video series with opinionated character, Carolyn Meeks, on Comedy Rants. Jenn’s must see blog and YouTube channel are her Jenneral Assembly of characters and their stories.


 

I’m not sure why, but I have always taken great delight in watching people become enraged. Two reasons spring to mind A) there is something quite raw and rather honest about anger and I suppose it makes me uncomfortable. Which, in turn, makes me laugh. And B) I can think of very few situations that are truly rant or rage-worthy in every-day life. I say the following as a former customer service representative for Verizon Wireless; there is nothing more hilarious than watching someone scream at a bill payment machine.

So, you can imagine, I was thrilled to film a video with the prompt of “comedy rant”. Carolyn Meeks is a character who’s hopelessly skewed perspective on life is only perpetuated by her own navel gazing. Which made her the perfect candidate for a video diary on “things that she finds unjust.”

Carolyn Meeks’ Video Diary is the first of a series and I am thrilled to premier it on ComedyRants.com – Jenn Dodd
