The guy in the cupboard...laughed my ass off! Reminds me of my life growing up. I think a large part of comedy comes from being able to make light of the many crappy and surreal situations we face everyday...a very pertinent commentary on the new-collared lower class in our society. I look forward to seeing this concept get developed. Good luck!

    Not sure about this, there's alot of tough competition out there, the first video scene with the guy in the cupboard made me laugh, best of luck

    This video should have consisted of more face slaps. I demand to see more face slaps from now on. The harder they are the better. That's the most feedback I can give.

    I like some of the filming techniques used. The idea of using a broad range of characters in diverse roles is good. I am not seeing the humour. The writing could be much more creative, surprise the viewers!

    Hi :) I love all kinds of humour - subtle, dry, sarcastic, warped, over-the-top, etc...done right, funny is funny no matter the style. Sooo...I re-watched all 3 of your missions (you have my attention) at a different time of the day to see if I felt anything different 2nd time around. I think you nailed mission # 2 - a great presentation of the crew. And i think the concept for the show is interesting but somehow missions 1 & 3 had me in & out of focus. Maybe it was the "unnatural" voice (?) that took my attention away. or the content itself...I'm not sure. But I wish you luck with your project and I'll continue to stay tuned to see what you come up with next.

    The sarcasm drips like honey down my humour-parched throat and I can once again swallow comedy whole!

    This is the best video so far... I love the way it's filmed with the dark lighting and the rotating characters in an interrogation/cult style. I look forward to seeing this concept develop and especially the unique characters.

    I like that you know who you are from the videos I have seen and that you address and poke fun of current standards on TV. Hope people pay attention!

    Thanks Alberta!! I've been dying to create more varied, weird, character roles (not all ingenues dammit!) for women for a long time. Even in film school, I used to default my comedic voice to male characters all the time (unconsciously) until I realized I was part of the problem. No more!! We can talk about nachos, kill a drifter accidentally, whatever. World's our oyster ;)

    Thanks Eric!! What we lack in job security and the ability to plan a future, we make up for in diplomas. Just... just heaps of diplomas.

    I can see how this video explains somewhat of how you guys may be unique, but I'm still really unclear about the overall concept. I've watched all the videos and have read the synopsis and I'm just not quite understanding what this show is meant to be all about. Good luck with the competition though!

    It's a character portrait - Roseanne style poverty for a new generation that went out and got diplomas, but still wound up in basement "garden level" apartments. The "Friends" - esque lifestyle of service jobs but a $10,000 NYC apartment isn't the most accurate one!

    So creative! Love how each video shows me a different side of "Prospects". Lots of depth here, very distinctive project!
