Webseries: Written It Down

I found this gem while searching for more webseries to enjoy. I watched the first season which is a series of couples breaking up, unscripted. It is a riot. [via Raindance]

Summary from their YouTube Channel:

“Delivering bad news is hard to do… especially when you don’t know what it is”

A completely unscripted new comedy show that puts two people in the ultimate uncomfortable situation without any idea where it’s going to go next.

In each episode a couple sits down and one of them reads a piece of paper with the reason for the break-up and the scene begins. It is comedy improv at its best. The improv actors know their craft and they know how to play off of each other. Each of the episodes had me laughing, but I guess my favorite was the third couple. You can watch it below. I just wish that at least one of the couples had been LGBT, like the Chicago series I reviewed yesterday.

Since each scene is in a public place, all they needed was access to a couple of cafes and pubs. Each setting is a little different, but familiar, in the way that cafes and pubs usually have familiar settings. The lighting is good and the sound production is as well. I liked the music intro into and exiting the scene helped segue the comedy.

With each episode only about four or five minutes and only five episodes in the first season you can breeze through it quickly with a lot of laughs.
