Auditions set Dec. 11 for comedy troupe

November 30, 2010

What are you, some sort of comedian?

That's exactly the question local comedian Clay Vickers and the Goondock Saints comedy group are posing to Crossroads residents, as the troupe of funny men and women look to expand their repertoire in preparation for a January performance at a comedy club in Austin.

Vickers, a 2003 graduate of Forsan High School and affectionately known to his friends as Gooney, said comedy has been a major part of his life since he was a child, but it wasn't until several of his friends got in on the act that they decided to form their own comedy troupe.

“I performed in a few plays in high school but was never the best actor,” Vickers said. “While studying sports medicine at Howard College on a scholarship, I auditioned for a couple of college plays. I was offered a full scholarship to act, and it was certainly more fun than spending 12 hours a day in a smelly training room wrapping ankles and icing knees.

“Clay Grizzle (former theater professor at the college) was one of the biggest influences in my life. He gave me more opportunity to just be myself on a stage than anyone before. He urged me to write stand up 'stories,' as he put it, being an ex stand up comedian himself, and said that the best thing I could do is read everything and write down every thought I had.”
