    Human town might just be the next "Kids in the Hall", looks like you have a strong connection between one another and that is something you will have going for you in the comedy coup competition

    While I can't get behind the title, the whole concept is something I've always thought would/could be a fantastic approach to sketch comedy on television, and I'm glad to see that it's being executed so skillfully here and by such a talented and wonderful group of people. There's an obvious camaraderie on display here in a video that touches on so many elements of what makes your team special, while never ceasing to be engaging and relatable. Awesome work, can't wait to see more.

    This is a super cool idea and I think it's a great step in keeping sketch as a legit format for television! But while it's cool I have a weird anxiety about all of the sketches existing in the same world. It feels like it might limit you but I would love to be wrong cuz you guys got THE STUFF*

    *Great senses of humor and great writing skills!

    Not bad, not bad. Would like to see some more demonic sketches, maybe even something on Mohamed. I think that will play very well. But seriously, ever since Kids in the Hall there hasn't been much in terms of sketch comedy in Canadian television. It's about time a show tries to fill that void, and all the luck in doing so

    I can't remember if I've already posted to this week, but I love how you guys mix sketch comedy into your talking heads videos. Though, I do wish for more straight up videos without the talking heads, but I'm sure there will be. The sell sheet has a good idea for visuals, but it looks a bit off.

    Lots of scope for development. Having examples of skits that are proposed might have beenhelpful in letting audience visualize the proposal for interwoven skits to carry a story line. What!?! No women, younger people, middle-aged folks or seniors.... may have an impact on the audience draw. Just sayin...

    I like the concept and the possibilities that Human Town is bringing to the competition. Not sure all the previous cred makes me want to really get behind them though. The quality of the writing and video should tell us all we need to know. The teaser got me from the content that had been shot prior to this competition. That showed me a good concept and the ability to make it work.

    I am a big fan of skit shows. My favorite right now is Key and Peele. I would love for Canada to have a successful skit show. The tough part about it is that even great skit shows can have bad skits but the personalities carry it anyway. I am not saying the personalities here can't do the same with time. But it takes a feel out period with any skit show before the audience feels like that want to see the characters doing something ridiculous. Congrats on making top 55 and good luck with getting into the top 15!

    Very strong video again guys, good work. Even though it seems like you're working with content or at least ideas that were in the works before this contest was announced, there's no doubt that you've produced original and entertaining videos every week for Comedy Coup. So while with some teams I'm apprehensive that they're just submitting an already-made show that doesn't fit the contest, I don't get that worry with you since you've proven that you can be original within the actual Week X videos. Good luck with the Top 15!

    The quick cuts of the first half were just distracting but I thought the second half worked much better as a pitch sheet. It could be an interesting concept to have stories interweave week after week. I like the effort and imagination that you guys have put in this. I too am noticing some cutting and pasting of comments Cathy B

    Although there's like, a million different sketch comedy shows, on TV. I don't think, that there are any sketch comedies. Where the sketches all tie into each other. At least, none that I've seen. So for that reason, alone. I'd check it out.

    The Jian bit and the last line were the only jokes that worked for me. With all due respect, I feel there are a lot of groups doing this kind of thing with a lot more money and experience behind them. (Not referring to Comedycoup, but to sketch tv as it stands right now) It looks like you guys are trying to do a fantastical "Mr Show" type sketch show and I am sure your hearts are in the right place, but I'm not drawn to any of you as artists, you just seem like a bunch of fanboys having a good time. how can we trust that will produce something of value?

    This being a direct Media Pitch Video, we kept the focus low on jokes, and more on info.

    Obviously it’s hard to convince an audience they can trust you based on a couple videos and a poster. It takes a lot more time than that. For a better judgement you can check out our 50+ stand alone sketch videos on our website - HumanTown.ca

    I would rather audiences be convinced by the quality of our content than us babbling about credentials. And there’s always going to be groups with more financing and experience, but you gotta start somewhere. Thanks for the post Taylor

    You guys nailed this week's challenge! Got all the necessary facts in, while keeping in funny. It seems like you all have great chemistry and you're on the same page with this project. I'm also a big fan of your production value. The makeup and visual effects look great! I'm really curious how you get to interweave ogres, cops, and demonic babies though. They can't be all that inter-connected, could they?

    I'm sincerely rooting for this project, but I do have one major concern. The majority of the humour is of the non-sequitur/absurdest variety, which can be awesome-- in small doses. There was a sketch show on the comedy network waaaaay back called Y.B.Normal (as terrible as it sounds). Joke after joke, sketch after sketch, episode after episode it was all absurd humour. It got really tiresome, really quickly. I hope that in the coming weeks you guys get a chance to show off your comedic talent in a way that doesn't rely on science fiction, demons, monsters, or any of that kind of stuff. Good luck!

    Our video for the next assignment may scratch that itch Max. Its not going to feature any fantasy/monster elements, just another example of comedic style.

    Funny group of guys and the only sketch show pitch I've watched so far. I am a bit concerned that the vague description of what the show is actually doing is a bit of a cover for poor planning. I know general and open sketch projects are tough to describe but saying "we do what we feel like" reeks of dodging the hard work of applying constraints. More specifics, what are some plots which will be carried through sketches, who will carry them, is this just going to be an exercise in sketch to sketch segways?

    Kajetan K. 3  posted 4 years ago

    Given the 90 second constraints we have, we can't spend a lot of time outright describing exact plot details. But we definitely have the whole first season written/mapped out. By "We do what we feel like", we mean there's no specific character we're constantly tied down to. Sketches flow in a way that's thematically satisfying... but above all...what's most funny.
