During my morning ablutions, I had two thoughts in mild opposition to each other. The first: “Do I have too much dated humor in my plays?” The second: “Can I put a ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ joke into Eating Disorder?
High minded, yes. But WWJD as a saleable concept actually dates back to the nineteenth century, and Christ Himself obviously much further. I thought of The Marley Show, almost six years old now. It uses easily dated humor through Rolling Stones songs and Michael Jackson’s plastic surgery, but these are still applicable topics today. Hey, even online trading, which I was embarrassed about in The Marley Show One Act, is still a reality. So despite my fears (or maybe my secret, nostalgic longings), I’m not outdated yet.
