Listen, these numbskulls are being modest about how incredibly talented they all are. I don't have to be, so here's the straight dope:

Dan is responsible for two of the funniest webseries I've ever seen ('Dad Drives', 'Space Riders') and knows how to write extended comedy stories. He plays the straight-man incredibly well: wacky characters are actually IMPROVED by his presence.

Mark is one of the best stand-up comedians working today. Period. I've run a comedy show for 3 years and whenever he drops by he absolutely brings the house down. He was also a member of Picnicface, which produced one of the best sketch shows of the last few years.

Jeremy is also an exceptional stand-up with a unique style of absurdism. It's an absolute pleasure watching him perform. His 'Finding Bessarion' short film is one of the best representations of real Toronto that I've ever seen.

And to top it off, Amy (who I know the least about) was a great comic foil on Space Riders. She brought a lot of humour to a somewhat smaller role.

Are you seriously not going to vote for these people?

    Thank you for the question! Yes, we've had some trouble being spread across the country by work right now. The Hangover skips the action of the night and deals with the aftermath—this *is* the action of that night, but I'd say with a purer spirit and less debauchery; more silly and inventive jokes and hopefully more heart.

    Generally, I felt meh. But I like the premise a lot. If done properly it could be a lot of fun to see how things progress in just one night. But, it could also be lame and will inevitably have to have things happen that just would not happen all in one night. Forcing it would be noticeable.

I get what you guys are TRYING to do, but it's derivative of something much stronger and infinitely more sincere. I'm going to look into your other work and decide from there whether I can deem this watchable or not. Either way the best of luck.

    The thing I like about short-sleeved guy and tie-and-shirt guy is that it looks like they are having fun.

    That rapid clip from the show was a lot of fun. We know that they are naked from the waist up but what else is going on? They made me imagine them naked all the way and that is the key to Hype.
