Groundlings

Show Summary

The Groundlings is a comedic web show on Crackle that finds its roots in the famous LA-based sketch comedy theater of the same name. Like many Saturday Night Live sketches, the actors in The Groundlings hold nothing sacred, and no amount of dignity is worth more than a laugh. Not only are the sketch topics a clever satire of popular culture, but the show also pokes fun at politicians, Western traditions and stereotypes. In the sketch titled Pete & Paula, hosts of a restaurant review show Pete (Jim Cashman) and Paula (Michaela Watkins) try to perfect the opening of their latest episode. With each take, the pair try harder and harder to be the consummate television hosts, but end in a frenzy of bad ideas, creating the ultimate spoof on TV personalities and food shows. The progression of events in each sketch, though seemingly illogical, makes sense when you consider that these actors are ranked among the best in the fields of improvisation and sketch comedy.
