Sketches for Newsrevue

Erin was a cast member in two runs of acclaimed sketch comedy show Newsrevue which has been running for over 30 years. Although the scripts are regularly recycled to keep up with the most current news, a few sketches stand the test of time, including this sketch Erin wrote about the Eurozone Crisis which stayed in the show for 6 months.
