Business Computer Presents: Through the Sketching Glass and What Business Computer Saw There...
BUSINESS COMPUTER PRESENTS: THROUGH THE SKETCHING GLASS AND WHAT BUSINESS COMPUTER SAW THERE...is interested in the elasticity of what sketch is, determined to break your comedy bones and reset them in a way that will assault your expectations and behavior towards sketch comedy. Through the use of both stage and video sketches, BUSINESS COMPUTER offers a mash-up of comedic proportions combining elements from "Tim and Eric", "Human Giant" and "Kids in the Hall", gingerly placing them all in a comedy blender with the weirdest of British humor like "Big Train" and "Jam", and then setting it all to explode. With lasers.
The world is a raging ball of choices and alternatives, endlessly adept at masquerading the horrible in the mundane, and the comforting everydayness that skitters in the shadows. Perhaps once you've stared at your reflection in the lake; your visage in the study's mirror; your fleeting face running away from you across the glass of the subway window. But what did your Other do after you left? Or are you the Other? Or is all of life just the Gwyneth Paltrow rom-com "Sliding Doors"? You have been here before. You have not been here before. You sat right here as you hated the monotony of lady pleasure devices, Beyonce, and the X-Files. You laughed right there as you loved the dissection of video game translations, waxing Shakespeare, and piles of excrement. Or was that you? It looked just like you...I told you my darkest secrets and you promised they were safe.
BUSINESS COMPUTER is composed of Evan Brandon, Brian Fiddyment, Christopher Garner, Daniel Kurland, Madeline Manning, Edy Modica, and Dan Ramos.
