Who says you cannot announce a development deal at a comedy festival anymore? TastiSkank, the sexy funny musical duo of Sarah Litzsinger and Kate Reinders, arrived in Las Vegas last night for The Comedy Festival and told The Comic's Comic they had just signed a deal with Sony Pictures Television for their own sketch TV show. They have begun meeting with showrunners. "We already have some sketches done," Litzsinger said. Both ladies have experience on Broadway — Litzsinger as Belle in "Beauty & the Beast"; Reinders as Glinda in "Wicked" — and in only their fourth big performance together, got the attention of the industry in Aspen in 2007.
They're in Vegas this weekend as part of the fest's LOL Lounge, free showcases for fans at Caesars Palace and for you online.
Here's a taste of the TastiSkank:
