Ken SlatteryInstructor: Ken Slattery

Ken Slattery has been a writer for Killing My Lobster since 2007, and is currently the Writing Director. As well as writing for a zillion shows, Ken co-directed the summer show Killing My Lobster Goes Undercover in 2010, was the Head Writer for the spring show Killing My Lobster Reboots in 2011, and runs our semi-regular KML Pops The Question trivia nights. Ken is a playwright as well as a sketch comedy writer, and has been a member of PlayGround’s Writing Pool for seven seasons, writing many comic short plays and two full-length comedies during that time. Ken’s play Truffaldino Says No was produced by Berkeley’s Shotgun Players in the summer of 2012, and another play, The Shakespeare Bug, will be produced by Killing My Lobster in Fall 2013. When not doing any of the above, Ken is usually out and about walking his dog Daisy, who you’ll probably meet at some point if you take this class. You probably won’t meet the tiger though.
