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.

— Wendy King
