We’ve covered so many superb web contributions in the almost two years that this column has been running. 78 of them to be exact. And today, we return to the series that started all this silly web magic: Tiny Apartment. Sort of. We’re really returning to the creator/stars behind it: Jesse Cantrell, Mike O’Gorman, and Pat Driscoll — veritable titans in the Internet comedy realm, familiar faces on many a TV commercial and late-night variety show, and now, bonafide TV big wigs with the sale of a Comedy Central pilot we’re eagerly awaiting.
With so many TV successes, it wouldn’t be unfathomable to think they’d stop breaking their backs on producing their own, low-budget stuff and spend more time relaxing in the sunny poolside glow of…well, wherever, there’s a sunny poolside glow. But no. The Tiny Apartment trio is still playing for the love of the game, now hard at work on their latest passion project, stand alone sketch site Omelette Sunday.
Check out the first episode up top and the second below and let me say this: If you like Tiny Apartment, you’ll like The Shawshank Redemption, and if you like The Shawshank Redemption, you’ll LOVE Schindler’s List and if you love Schindler’s List, you’re really going to enjoy Omelette Sunday.
Here’s to Jesse, Mike, and Pat. You guys were my first.
