Hi Steam - thanks for the comment. We don't condone the equation of women and objects, but certainly we've seen that in certain circles on the wharf it seems to have been culturally and historically naturalized for some reason - and continues to be so. And we do find that problematic. We attempted to take something seemingly natural in that atmosphere and render it absolutely absurd, rather than avoiding this issue or moralizing for our characters that indeed exist in that world and would have internalized those ideas. Glad you like the old guy and we'll certainly try again. Keep yer eyes out!

    Way to go on your comedy coup efforts to date. You have succeeded in making it to the top 55 and that is something to be proud of. Already the competition is getting tough as the quality of the competitors gets refined. Best wishes for making it to the next level.

    A bit crude. Its worth noting that while the prize is a TV special, the competition is on the net. So we can be a bit cruder here.

    Great acting. It feels like they aren't acting at all, no better compliment. Ton of dialogue as well, perhaps ad libbed?

    Hey Forman...some ad libbed, but lots of writing and rehearsing....we tried a different approach.

    I have watched this a couple of times. I think this is a cute idea and I really like the Canadian touches. I am just not sure this will appeal to all age groups and cbc audiences. Nicely done though.

    I just watched all 3 videos now and I love it. It's like Beachcombers Gone Nasty. I like the authenticity that shines through it. It's rough but endearing, which is a neat balance to strike.

    that's where we're comin from. there's certainly some beachcomber in there with a little bit of east coast edge tossed into the mix.

    We'll Rats... Not hard to tell which commentators have never been down the wharf.... I thought the boat in fish nets punch line was classic. Kinda sweet in a way.... For all their wharf rat bravado they're really like little foul mouthed boys wishing for the shiny new toy.... Equating boats and women is natural for a wharf rat... they're both objects of desire!

    A bit sexist no? Can't just disavow it by doing the cheapest joke flip in the world, they're talking about a non-woman, a thing in fact, no, I thought it was a bit sexist and one note. The older guy made me smile, I dress like that on a friday calling in sick to sit and mope beers on the front porch, but no, I think the basic underlying sexism of the video makes me not want to watch it. Try again, lads.

    There are many wharf characters including DFO officers, fishmongers, poachers, their mother, and Angus - their mother's younger-aged lover that married into the family to snake Hughie and Martin's inheritance: a fishing boat and two fishing licenses. This is what leaves them stranded on the wharf.

    Real funny teaser, guys! Would like to see more variety/characters so I could get a sense of how this would stretch into a full series though. Don't want people to think you just have one joke. Still, excited to see more

    Agreed Caitlin. We were keeping it simple for the first sketch, introducing just a key location and characters. We have lots of other jokes, characters, locations and ideas on paper and want to give people the chance to see them. Appreciate you giving us your time and comment!

    My question is, once the joke is revealed, where do you go from there? I thought the performances were fun to watch. The skit was well executed. Good for a few chuckles for sure. Good on you.

    Thanks Dan - well once the joke is revealed the skit is over. But this is only meant to be 90 seconds in the lives of two characters. More of the story is in the synopsis and will be revealed in other videos. Glad you enjoyed it!
