El: Hey, Mel?
Mel: Yes, El?
El: Don't you ever wish that sitcoms were five minutes or less, so that we could enjoy a visit with our favorite humorous characters without putting in a hefty time commitment?
Mel: I sure do, El. I like to reap the benefits of a good laugh without feeling like I'm rooted to the couch for hours on end.
El: We could make a mini sitcom, you know. A hilariously funny sitcom that we'd put on the web for people to enjoy wherever they are, whenever they want.
Mel: That's genius. It would be a series for the web.
El: A web series!
Mel: And the episodes would be called "webisodes"!
El: Why have we never thought of this before?
Mel: I don't know, but I sure do love your good, smart brain.
El: And I yours, Mel. Now let's get to shootin'.
Hello, Lovely Readers!
We are Mel & El - best friends since we were 12 years old and an award-winning musical comedy team that has been playing to audiences in New York City and beyond for the past few years. Our act has had various incarnations, from a cabaret show to a full-scale Off-Broadway production to a monthly comedy show at one of the top five comedy clubs in the country. We are now ready to embark on our next big adventure: a web series! We're working with a fantastic team to produce three fully scripted "webisodes" that will also include our original music. We already have story ideas galore, and if they make US laugh out loud, imagine what they're going to do to YOU. ALL KINDS OF CRAZY THINGS!
Of course, it costs money to do this "right". While we'd like to think that we could conquer the web with nothing but a flipcam and some lip gloss, we know better. So here we are, bee-atches! Help some sisters out!
