Interview: Evany Rosen, creator of the new multiverse teen comedy Davey & Jonesie's Locker

Filed under: Kinda Sorta Maybe Like a Podcast

If you've been following Canadian comedy over the last 15 years, you've probably seen Evany Rosen on TV, and you've definitely seen her work. Originally breaking out as part of the Halifax sketch comedy troupe Picnicface, she's since worked on the brilliant Baroness Von Sketch Show (writing for it and also appearing in many sketches over its 5 seasons) and co-created and starred in the Crave comedy series New Eden alongside Kayla Lorette.

She's now behind a brand new series, Davey & Jonesie's Locker, which is streaming on Prime Video in Canada and Hulu in the U.S. The hilarious show stars Veronika Slowikowska and Jaelynn Brooks as best friends thrust into a multiverse saga without ever leaving their high school, and besides showrunning, Evany also appears on screen as the school's principal.

I got the chance to catch up with Evany over Zoom a week ago -- 13 years after our last interview -- and we spoke about combining the teen comedy with campy sci-fi, writing female friendships, working with the leads of Davey & Jonesie's Locker, and (because it's a multiverse show, of course) easter eggs.
