My overall impression

I absolutely loved Stupid Songs. It has one of those simple high-concepts that makes you go, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ Sketch comedy songs. The kind of original, twisted concepts you would expect to see at a great Groundlings show… But instead of the scenarios being played out in sketch, they’re played out in song.

Some of the songs consist of new lyrics written to existing songs – some familiar, some obscure. All hysterical. But most of the songs are completely original and hysterical.

Most impressive is the cast. Each as funny a comedian as you’ll see on any stage in LA. The show would be cringe-worthy if they couldn’t also sing like champs. And act like pros. The show is performed with such comic assuredness, at its very best it makes you feel like you’re at a taping of the Carol Burnett show. It’s often at it’s best.

My favorite song/sketches included serial-killing neighbors, horny sailors, a socially anxious bowler, a guy who doesn’t know what to do with his arms, and a baby whose parents brought her to a bar.

I could go on. This is a rare find; a unique high concept. I hope TV producers are headed this way. This would make a great hour of television.
