Best Show Ever! | Too Cancelled for TV | Cometh | Working Title
Video vignettes play a significant role in every Six Characters show: they introduce live pieces, link them together in novel ways, and even stand on their own as quick slaps of cinematic brilliance. So when audiences asked, nay, demanded, videos that were bigger & longer, we bowed to their collective whim.
In the summer of 2003, the Six Characters fulfilled their celluloid destiny by writing and producing a 30-minute video opus of all-new material, entitled, Six Characters-Too Cancelled for TV. It contained all the elements of a Six Characters live show: snappy music, clever sight gags, and quirky characters caught up in incredible circumstances, all delivered with an irreverent poke in the morals.
Using the skills they had garnered from their many years onstage, the Six made another leap forward in their artistic quest for comedy sunshine. So get yourself a DVD and bow down to comedy masters! The following is a short description of what you can expect on the DVD.
