Posted by BrentRose on Aug. 14, 2009

Tell the world:

Week 20 of 50 Characters in 50 Weeks. Shawn Wilson has phocomelia and was born without arms. In an effort to get back into shape and meet new people, he has decided to take some dance lessons.I wanted to avoid easy jokes (or really any jokes) for this one at all costs. This episode was entirely improvised. Big thanks to Amaya, who is a real-life samba/salsa teacher.50in50 is Brent Roses attempt to create a new character each week for 50 consecutive weeks, and make a short film for each.
