Synopsis

Enter the strange and disturbing world of Fratwurst. Three seasoned sketch performers (Evan Arppe, Eric Miinch, Josh Murray) become citizens of an ordinary small Canadian town. However this is no ordinary town. Or is it? See an abandoned dinosaur theme park converted into a brunch restaurant! See three men who make their living finding treasures at yard sales! See the Scrabble factory employees who speak only in letters! The small town upbringing of these three sketch artists will inform this episodic look at the citizens of the strangest little town north of the 49th parallel. It’s Portlandia meets Kroll Show meets Summer Heights High.

    Wow, so terrible. This is boring and inane after even 30 seconds. I cannot imagine a full show like this.
