Dick and Fart Jokes

This is our improv webshow devoted to crude, base humor.
Throughout the filming of
Speaking Japanese, actor Mike
Radford came up with various suggestions for the movie,
the majority of which writer/co-director
CB Wilkins shot
down, not because they weren't funny, but because they
were what he termed "dick and fart jokes" that didn't really
fit the style of the movie. Well, this show is the place for
them.


All the episodes star Mike Radford and CB Wilkins and
were directed by CB Wilkins.

This was the version of Elided that we actually submitted for the
contest. It's almost two minutes shorter, the sound is so low you can
barely hear it and the color isn't quite as nice. So you can see why we
didn't win.
"Internet Porn"














This is the third episode. In this episode, CB reveals
his love of, well, internet love. (This episode is very
explicit and you probably won't like it so please don't
watch it.
"Starting a Band"
















This is the first episode. In this episode, Mike and CB
start a band.
__________________________________________________________________________________________
"Exercise"














This is the second episode. In this episode, Mike
decides to get in shape and tries to convince CB to
join him.

"Baby Survivor"














This is a scene from our upcoming movie Speaking Japanese. It's not
an essential scene, so it doesn't give away any of the story, but it's
pretty indicative of the comedy style. Enjoy.
