“I am so thrilled to have Colin on the team! He is a comedy icon and his “yes and” approach to workshopping ideas is contagious.” Sophie Nation, Sloppy Jones Writer
Colin is an advocate for representation and inclusion. He loves the fresh original queer slasher comedy of Sloppy Jones.
“There are so many elements that you can have fun with, the murder mystery, the campiness, the amateur detectives.” Colin Mochrie on Sloppy Jones
Colin is also excited to work with his great friend Linda Kash again – they performed together at Second City for many years.
He and fellow Mentor and Executive Producer Amanda Walsh have been working hard with the creative team to really understand the characters, polish the scripts and punch up the comedy.
