JJJ caught up with the cast on set late last month to chat about the new format, new cast and the new sketches.
Doug Brochu told us, “The new format is very involved. Instead of seeing what goes on behind-the-scenes, you’re seeing us in our element, on ‘So Random.’ There are tables set up for the audience to sit at, chairs…I love both sides, but the SNL-type is great to experience.”
And when we saw our pal Brandon Smith, all we had to talk about was the super cool stage! “The stage is so cool. The fact that it turns gives the show that much more excitement. You don’t know if Tony Hawk is going to be back there or if it’s going to be Selena Gomez. Anyone could be there. The stage is magic.”
For five weeks beginning Friday, June 24th, you’ll see four teams of young stars compete in a series of fun physical challenges to benefit specific charities and Friends for Change community projects on a global basis.
Brandon told JJJ recently, “It’s a whole new setting. The stage does something really gnarly that I know the audience will like. It really is like a teen club, SNL now. We really love the ability to actually interact with the audience and kids. We’re just bringing more funny and more sketches.”
