About this project
WATCH THIS DRUNK with Temple Horses is a television pilot that mixes avant-garde comedy with the classic audience-friendly game sketch model. The show tackles everything from heavy societal issues like race, police brutality and economic collapse to lighter fare like the difficulties of dating, pets and the rise of hipster culture.
The show’s cast will mix exciting newcomers emerging on the comedy scene with established national veteran guests. The show will be presented in a multimedia format that interweaves live and video sketch with commercial parody. The structure is intended to hold the focus of the increasingly distractible Internet Generation, as well as provide it with memorable online clips and bonus content.
Writers Nick Ruggia and Ryan Hoffman are both respected standup comedians in their own right. Their material reflects a society moving at a dizzying rate of change while facing greater and greater threats. Their subject matter is peppered with chaos, absurdity and, of course, well-crafted dick jokes. They hope their sketch show will be the first to capture the views and sensibilities of the new young America.
