A Splendid Sketch Is Born

Well, shoe me in the nuts, then set me ablaze - it's not every day you get to host, on your own blog, something you've written. But here, for your naked, steaming eyes, is a brand new Splendid sketch, written by me and directed by Dan Turner. Showcasing all six of this up-and-coming affair's gorgeous performers (click here for my recent guide to who they are), I think it's turned out, aptly enough, splendidly. I'm particularly proud of the dialogue. Yes.

Watch it (click here to see it on the actual Funny Or Die site) then cast your online vote: is it Funny, or is it Die?

Then feel free to e-mail it around, embed it into Facebook, have it printed on a commemorative toby jug and/or sent to Mars on a rocket ship of your own design.

Yoga - watch more funny videos

I get the comedy behind it and why it would be made but really - I don't see the point.

If anything, it seems like an advert - I was waiting for a slogan to appear at the end.

Basically, it is what it is. It's not trying to explore the depths of human experience, or be quick witted. It's trying to be something else. I'm just not sure what that is.

Nevertheless, it's a bit of funny fun. I give it 2.5/5.

Thanks, Neil! Hope you don't mind us using some of these quotes for Splendid posters. "I don't see the point" would be top notch!

I thought the dialogue was rubbish.

Well I think one of you owes me a new keyboard. I've just snorted coffee all over this one.

You can decide amongst yourselves who's responsible.

Baron Barron: I hated the visuals in everything you've done for radio.

Lady Lipton: Apologies, and you may be in luck! We took out keyboard-insurance cover... unless yours is wireless? That's simply too fancy.

I've been dying to watch this since you posted it the other day and I was at work, and the blasted computer wouldn't allow me to play it!

I do agree with Neil on this one, however I did appreciate the choreography and the feel of it as a whole.

I think it would work really well as part of a longer show - a little "this is how I feely feel!" sketch to show the frustrations of a cake lover in a monotonous yoga scene.

Well done chappies!
