Week #1 Show Teaser Jobless

Show Teaser for Jobless, the comedy about life in our nation's unemployment capital.

Fave 63   Share 23 Views 1051 Comments 28   


Mike and Adam are two 20-something guys who are hopelessly unqualified for any decent-paying job. Not that it matters much, living in a city that has celebrated a long reign as Canada's unemployment capital.

As they careen toward the red, Mike and Adam must resort to any and all means necessary to make ends meet, creatively combating the daily struggles of life in an economic wasteland -- never failing to get themselves embroiled, sometimes unwittingly, in controversy and outlandish situations along the way.

Featuring a cast of outrageous characters bankrupt in money but not hilarity, Jobless is a sharp, satirical look into the life of the young and unemployed.

    So many people can relate to being jobless especially in Ptbo Ontario. But Mike and Adam put humour into it all making the subject a lot funnier and not so depressing :)

    Love this concept as many people can relate to the stresses of unemployment and finding a job - the writing seems to be up to par with the comedic-whit that I really enjoy. Hope to see more of Jobless.
