Our dead pilot this month is called American Alien written by Sierra Teller Ornelas (Superstore, Happy Endings). We recorded this one live from The USC Comedy Festival! American Alien centers around Denise “Dee Dee” and Sonny Mendoza, a small-town brother-and-sister team who struggle to keep their working-class jobs while also protecting vulnerable space aliens from everyday pitfalls in their hometown of Tucson, Arizona.
We had a great cast for this one including Kaliko Kauhi as Dee Dee, Dustin Ybarra as Sonny
Kevin Sussman as Connor, Stephnie Weir as Ruth, Nichole Bloom as Jackie/Professional Woman 1
Kevin Balmore as Hector/Little Boy, Maria Blasucci as Mavis/Stacy/Professional Woman 2, Logan Hall as T’Oliver/Yadelah/Old Man/Tough Guy/Cliff, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
Stay tuned after the read Andrew interviews Sierra regarding her dead pilot and there’s also a Q & A with the crowd too!
