Videos by Comedy Duo Pretty Things Shame ‘Gossip Girl‘

This L.A.-based gender-bending duo are making sketch comedy edgy again. Michael Lucid and Amanda Barrett combine aggressive insincerity and bizarro half-animations in full series like proto–Gossip Girl boarding-school soap Mulberry Commons and Megwin and the Land of Neverwill, which concerns a savvy lady lawyer's adventures in a fantasy world. Best of breed: a short titled “Feedback,” featuring friend Jack Plotnick (with Lucid in drag) as a gay man struggling with being “on” all the time.
