Jed was a part of a group of high school friends who were all funny, talented and smart. When they'd collaborate, they'd come up with amazing ideas including some awesome comedy performances beyond their years. When Tony, one of the talented group, got Jed involved in making spots for BYU TV, they didn't need to look far for inspiration. They traveled to visit one of their other best friends, now a teacher, who is inspiring in a different way now.

By the way, this is the same Mikey that was crowned Mr. Provo High '97, when he blew us all away with his talent--diving into a glass of water.

Mr. Rowley is my friend Dalene's husband; that he influenced Jed's friend in this manner doesn't surprise me. Great video.

I always liked Mikey and I can only imagine what great things those kids are learning through lessons from him and by his example. I would give a lot of money to see all those guys do something together again! Jed...?

Mr. Rowley and Mikey are both legends. What a great film, Jed!

This video was AWESOME. When I need a documentary made about my teaching career, I want Jed to do it...

Seriously.

@ali,
bless your heart for coming to our shows, and bless you again for remembering the skits.

@jason,
your blog is by far the better documentary of your efforts in the classroom. no camera could capture what you do with your words.
