We go to the newsroom with Dr. Hofer. He explains the new form of comedy presented by the Caliban Strange Variety. The differentiators, a deaf mute scarecrow puppet, and a non-French speaking French sock puppet., called Mr, Mouton. Then Caliban Strange explains the method of delivering the comedy with the Solar Powered Voodoo Mind projector. Plus the Caliban Club with membership and privileges.

Good attempt. Some good commitment in the acting. Tach side can use a bit of work but of course at this stage in the game its hard to do everything well with limited resources. That said, some good sketch potential here.

After a long day of shooting in front of the camera and lights, Caliban likes to let his wig air out!

    There's something I love about sketch comedy, and it's it's uniqueness, and you've got this in spades. Thank you for showing me the way to new comedy, and to new love.

    This is not perfect (the technical problems have already been pointed out here it seems) but you get the point of the show across well. I love sketch comedy and this is definitely a unique and original approach to it. Good luck to you!

    A little attention to the technical aspects of your video would help get your message across more clearly. Getting the sound in sync and properly mixed would be good and exporting at the correct aspect ratio so that isn't letterboxed would be a good start.

    Thanks will work on that. Sometimes when the character wears the wig, I like when it is out of sync, makes me think he is getting out of his head.

    Strange is actually Caliban's last name, and yes he is also strange.

    The best part so far was the image if the wig sighing out. Otherwise, I'm not clear where the caliban strange variety show is going other than the strange. Which may or may not be something worth seeing!

    The sound wasn't great but I respect anyone who employs sock puppets.

    The sound is quiet on the teaser to draw people in like a silent movie. Check out the other two!

    Thanks for commenting. Thanks for the positive feedback. I have a great team and connections to make this happen. The Fringe is wear the aberrations of light are. Light is the theory to magic realism in the comedy realm. Keep us on the radar. This is a lot of fun!

    I appreciate "different" that's actually different. I like the strange that you are and we need some actual innovation to show itself in these parts. Top 110's fine and dandy, but the fringe is where the funny is.

    I'm not sure where this is going, or what it is for that matter. But it's compelling so I keep watching it, waiting...

    The thing about my show is that it isn't the standard Seinfeld model sitcom. Some people haven't been able to advance because they can't write themselves out of a paper bag. I have written all my shows. Writing is the key element. A lot of group are out and didn't write anymore.I appreciate u watching and commenting too.
