Synopsis

House of Commons is a sketch comedy show that revolves around the home of Alexisonfire's George Pettit and his comedian wife Megan. Episodes include interactions around the Pettit's dining room table, where ideas and trash talk are freely exchanged with Ben Rispin, of the Juno nominated Saint Alvia Cartel, newcomer Adam Price and Night of the Live Dead Live co-creator, Phil Pattison. The dynamic amongst the group members draws you in and then carries you into the literal interpretation of the table's madness; sketch comedy. The sketches range from the lighthearted to the absurd and include many of the group's musician friends. Welcome to our house.

    The folks involved seem like they could do something funny, but in the clips, they don't give us much of an idea what it might be

    I was getting into the beginning of the show but didn't find the rest funny at all. Note sure where you're going with the concept. Good luck

    Wasn't what I thought it would be based on the name - it was disjointed and couldn't get the gist of the idea
