Week #1 Show Teaser Flickers!

FLICKERS-TV is fast-paced comedy for today's sexy audience. Quick bites of sketches, characters, parodies, public domain movies and other stuff too. We flick to the best parts of what you're not watching. None of the boring stuff! The pilot features "Weird Al" Yankovic, Kid Nappa, Barbara Payton, and Raymond Burr's hands. No kiddin'.

Synopsis

FLICKERS-TV is comedy for today's young, internet savvy audience. We shoot sketches, character pieces and parodies with fantastic celebrity guests, add in some public domain footage, then flick by only the funniest bits of each.

While flicking channels for you we might catch the beginning of one program and the middle of another. We'll see awkward cooking shows, public-access call-ins, breaking news and strange ads. We'll see a trailer for a terrible new sci-fi movie and scenes from a REALLY terrible old one.

It's the ideal way to package new, fast-paced sketch comedy. The only limits are... could it be on TV?

    I love the manatee! And I can't get the weather song out of my head.

    I would like to see another sketch show on TV. I like this concept because so many sketch show sketches get dragged out too long and lose the funny.
