Sketch comedy show begins third season

Local sketch comedy show “Laugh Now Laugh Later” is now airing its third season on WBXH-TV, Channel 39 (cable Channel 16) at 11 p.m. Fridays.

“Laugh Now Laugh Later,” created and produced by Terrance Turner of Maddgame Entertainment and Marketing, consists of segments including sketch comedies, “man on the street,” pop culture news and fashion trends.

Turner said his goal in producing the show is “to fill a void in the city and to highlight and potentially give the outstanding local talent in the Baton Rouge area a springboard into higher ground in the entertainment world.”

The sketch comedies are produced locally and written by local actors and comics. The show’s cast features Will Merrill, Jeff Buck, Byron Wade, Quinton Williams, Oonarissa Brown-Bernard, Sharmaine Hunter, Alexander Scott, Johnny Jones and Jared Burns, along with hosts Tyra Sterling of the fashion segment “Tyraology,” Williams with “man on the street” and D. Martez on the pop culture news segment.
