Most recent screenplay soon in competitions

Hello my name is C.J. Tuor

I am an actor/stand up comedian/writer based out of Chicago.

I have recently moved to the city and I am constantly looking for new opportunities. Currently, I am working on writing a stage musical but I am also writing for two sketch groups and performing stand up comedy.

My favorite genre is magic realism. I have written screenplays about college burnouts who believe in monsters, shorts about vampires who have to deal with racism, and plays about mental patients who believe themselves to be super villains. I love real world issues, I just love to examine them in a fun house mirror...also they're funny.

I have written for stage and screen and have had strong success in both. I hope that this company gives me a chance to continue in that success.

Thank you for your time and I hope we get to work together in the future.

C.J. Tuor
