I noticed your advertisement for a writer with a high football IQ and am applying for it because I believe I am a talented and creative writer with not only experience in the field but a tremendous knowledge and love for the game. Since moving to Los Angeles, I enrolled and graduated from the Groundlings school of improvisation. I am currently in their advanced performance track program and on a their waitlist for the final course of the program, which if completed and passed, will allow me to audition for the Groundling’s Sunday Company. I have also finished training for both improv and sketch comedy at UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade). I am currently in UCB’s advanced program while I wait to audition for both their Harold and Maude teams as a performer and writer. Finally, I am a writer and performer for IO West’s weekly topical sketch show, Top Story Weekly.
While I perform with various independent improv and sketch teams, my own Groundlings student team is called the Hometown Spooners. I have also been performing stand-up comedy for the past two years at the Comedy Store. Prior to that, I began doing standup in the Denver area while I was completing college at the University of Colorado.
The reason I am excited about your writing position is that it will finally allow me the opportunity to show my ability to write one line jokes on twitter, attention grabbing headlines, and articles that are not only accurate, but also incredibly humorous.
As stated before, I graduated from the University of Colorado where I studied Political Science and Journalism with an emphasis in writing. However, during my last two years of school, I noticed that serious journalism wasn’t for me. Instead, political satire was clearly my calling. This became abundantly apparent when I completed a series of sketch videos called the College Correspondent in which I interviewed random students on their knowledge (or more often than not lack thereof) about political issues or things going on at our campus. Also while in college I wrote for a blog called FanAttic.net, which has now become RantSports.com. Because of my overall addiction to sports I would say I look for any opportunity to throw sports humor into any stand up routine I do.
