    Comedy and Clam Chowder: Sketch Comedy Actors (Knoxville)

    The State

    Comedy and Clam Chowder

    Recently I posted this little diddy onto Craig’s List in Knoxville to find some funny people to help out with some comedy shorts:

    We’re looking for a few good natured, reliable and funny people to round out an ensemble cast for some web-based sketch comedy videos. We are a group of 4 film-makers/web designers looking for individuals with a good sense of comedy writing or acting.

    We will be shooting various short comedy sketches during the summer in Knoxville and we are looking for talent who are bold and confident in their opinions and will not pull any punches. If this is you, please respond to this ad with the name of your favorite soup.

    Those who like Manhattan Clam Chowder over New England Clam Chowder please do not respond.

    Essentially because our site has taken off we have recognized the need for original content.  That and none of us are fans of Manhattan Clam Chowder.  Seriously….tomatoes in Clam Chowder…?  Why not just heat up some Clamato?

    Anyway, we got a lot of response to the post. Much more than I thought but that’s a good thing. So hopefully this post will help flush out some of the details more.

    So here’s the deal.  We are a small group of goofy web designers and film people who would like to use our free time more productively and make some great comedy.  The ideal outlet is a series of shorts that can be packaged and delivered on the web as original content with the possiblity of entering some items in short film festivals.

    We have the cameras, sound systems, lights and even a green screen so we are pretty good on equipment. Some sources of inspiration for us all are the talents of groups like Monty Python, Kids in the Hall, The State, Whitest Kids U Know, Magic Hugs, College Humor, It’s Always Sunny in Philly, Funny or Die and similar insanities.  If you have ever watched a show like Saturday Night Live and made the comment “I could do better than that” here’s your chance to prove it.

    So if you are interested in helping start an ensemble comedy group in Knoxville please give me a holler at daveandthomas@gmail.com with some samples or details on how you can help out.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Location: Knoxville

    Hours: Weekends mainly.  We all work 9-5’s.

    Compensation: Pizza and beer.

    Equipment: Just you and your sense of humor.  We should have all the rest.

    Requirements: Be comfortable in writing and possibly performing comedy routines.  Must be able to work well with others and above all else, have a good time.

    EDIT [05-19-09]  We’ve already met with a few potential members and the response has been great. In fact, we’ve already scheduled a few shorts to start filming in the next week so if you have hopped over here looking for info on the group you can still help out.  Give me a hollar at daveandthomas@gmail.com for more information.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Sloss Furnace, A Hobo Paradise

    Down in the heart of Birmingham, Alabama, you’ll find the Sloss Furnaces nestled between Interstates a run-down and rusty little monument dedicated to the iron making that once fueled the town.

    It was operated as a pig iron-producing blast furnace from 1882 to 1971. After closing it became one of the first industrial sites (and the only blast furnace) in the U.S. to be preserved for public use.

    They hold concerts and events there now but it’s the Halloween party that I’m interested in.  The place is creepy and dangerous enough in the day so it would be a real trip to throw in the Halloween element.

    Jesus Hummer…Fantastic shot of WWJD if the “D” were “Drive.”  The cool thing about this is the dude driving it was dressed all in red, even the shoes.  He really knew how to coordinate!
