Have you ever been sucked into small talk about a film you’ve never seen? Or showed your face at a book club meeting for a novel you skimmed? There’s power in faking it, but what happens when you BREAK it? In this interview, we sit down with a few of the cast and writers of the newest Dallas Comedy House mainstage sketch revue, Fake It ‘Til You Break It. This sketch comedy show features a stellar cast (Andrew Plock, Danny Neely, Emily Gee, Julia Estelle, Kate Grogan, and Patrick Hennessy), two writers (Ashley Bright and Brian Harrington), and is directed by Cody Hofmockel.
