The forum is not an easy place to organize all the ideas, so I'm starting a Wiki

The Challenge

Forum user GoodAaron, in an attempt of shameless self-promotion, relayed a story about his sketch comedy group, "All Sorts of Trouble for the Boy in the Bubble," in which their Wikipedia entry was erased.

In desperation, GoodAaron transferred the article on All Sorts of Trouble for the Boy in the Bubble Sketch Comedy to the Ze Frank Wiki, offering in return, as payment, that the troupe would write and perform a sketch on a topic of Ze's choice in front a live audience and send it to the show. He finally sent a Private Message to Ze asking if his group could perform something for Ze. Ze responded with "ask the masses", and with that this challenge was started.

Notes from the Group

  • Hey Everybody,

It's Aaron W. from "Boy in the Bubble." We performed this Saturday, and videotaped the sketch you requested, "The Etiquette of Daring." It went over fairly well, so I hope to have the results uploaded to you soon.

Best, Aaron W. (GoodAaron)
