Week #1 Show Teaser Fruit Farm

Fruit Farm would be a ½ hour locational sitcom based on the stand up comedy of Joe Pillitteri. Joe’s entire upbringing was a series of adventures and misadventures with a foul mouthed Italian immigrant father and an overly religious Scottish immigrant mother. Fruit Farm takes a wry look at both past and present in the life of Joe and his family growing up on a farm in the heart of Niagara.

    Quite the competition from the east to the west coast and such an excellent group of participants makes it hard to pick just 15. I hope CBC gives you each a coffee mug or something for getting to the top 55. Best wishes to all.

    Hilarious. Totally relate to this. The lead's a comedian and is hilarious with family friendly material so I could see this being a big show.

    regarding the CS word (for CBC censoring) ... what if instead of it or "bastard" word you actually say the word "Beep", followed by the suckers routine? :D Just an ideea

    Joseph P. 1  posted 5 years ago

    Yes Bogdan - we have had some pushback from viewers on the "word". We think that it would be best to keep the word but beep the important part like you suggest!

  • Bogdan's Photo

    :)))))
    And here's our very TOP 1 - Awesomly done, Joe. Can't wait to see the next one. I've watched all of your youtube videos and loved the style - extremely funny mini tales and so elegantly wrapped all together.
    This one, the Fruit Farm - great, inspired, funny delivery with awesome follow up - the school incident where a "beep" sucker bites his friend :)) Good video clip directing and I find it a great ideea, too, the beeping (censoring) only when the kid says it (vs the grown up story teller), when the young Joe helps his school friend with strong, rock solid good advice regarding the beep beepers :)) ...his father knows better, it's the voice of experience itself.

    All in one, c'mon Joe, hurry up, we want to see your next show!!!

    what CBC word could ever replace CS?

    Login to post comments

    Joseph P. 0  posted 5 years ago

    Great question Jill - we're pouring over old Beachcomber episodes to see if Relic ever needed to be censored. In the meantime, forerunner is a simple *beep* like the one that's used when young Joe swears, "bastard" may also work (I remembered hearing that on a BBC show about King Henry VIII that was rebroadcast on the CBC when I was a kid and being slightly shocked). Thanks for the feedback - stay tuned, hoping to crack the top 100 and release some material that's "safer" for work.
