About the web series:We will be producing 10-12 sketches (or more depending on funding!) in a Hollywood soundstage in early June. The sketches will be shot in HD and will have professionally built sets and top notch props and costumes and even feature some celebrity guest stars like Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) and Sugar Kiper (Survivor, Celebrity Rehab). The skits come from seven years of performing and perfecting characters created by The Cool Table. If you've ever seen them perform live, you will recognize some of your favorite skits, including Purse Holders, Mary Barnes, and Coma Guy. If you haven't seen them live, check out their videos at: www.CoolTable.tv
