Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Winnipeg’s Aaron Merke and Lauren Cochrane bring the funny to this series of comic sketches interspersed with video shorts.
Highlights include an exasperated server trying to fill the ever-changing order of the world’s most annoying juice bar customer; a video short called Because I’m the Parent featuring two moustachioed 1970’s dads delivering vintage parenting advice; and a nod to Fifty Shades of Grey with a matronly author reading a chapter from her highly charged romance novel Snacktime Temptress, which features middle-aged seduction just as good as it can get in the office after hours. Also funny is the time management marriage - think “The 7 Habits of Highly Defective Married Couples” — featuring an over-scheduled couple and their sexual statistical analysis.
Some other sketches were not as strong but still, there were plenty of good laughs to be had.
