TRADITIONAL FAMILY: Mom’s Secret to Stretching the Dollar – Daily Fiber Films

traditional family funny video

Daily Fiber Films is a collective of writers, actors, and filmmakers- all working professionals- who do these projects for “the love of the comedy game”. We develop the script and then on the day of shooting, actors are encouraged to go with the instincts and improvise. TRADITIONAL FAMILY is a great example.

The lead, ERICKA KREUTZ, is an amazingly talented actress and improvised most all of her dialogue. You’d probably recognize her from tv roles and about three national commercials running right now. If the relationship between her and the baby seems genuine, that’s because it’s her son, Beckett, in his first on camera role. He was a natural as well!

NOW THAT’S CUTE!!! Office Freakout ~ Aaron Ballard

Cute

 

Aaron Ballard plays Nancy, who becomes undone at the sight of anything cute. The short was an official selection of The 2013 Chicago Comedy Film Festival.

Beverly Sparks Ramajones’ Campaign for President. Or something.

Marié Lake’s Excess Hollywood Indiegogo Campaign

CaptureMarie

Hi Funny Not Slutty ladies. It’s Marié Lake, host of Excess Hollywood. After watching one too many obsequious interviews by Billy Bush gushing over Suri Cruise, I decided to launch some web sketches and the first incarnation of Excess Hollywood, set in Palmdale, California was born with Jeremy Miller (Growing Pains) as my co-host. Now we are launching a full-blown web sit-com with my character Beverly Sparks-Ramajones joined by Brian Kiley (Conan writer) and Drew Doege (the infamous Chloe Sevegny sketches on the web). If you love celebrities, parody and celebrity-obsession please contribute. If you don’t but want a cameo, contribute bigger — we love nepotism in Palmdale. In any case, thanks for watching!

I Showed for Jenn Dodd’s No Show: A One Woman Show and You Should Show, Too


It’s no easy feat to create a one woman show, but this didn’t stop our very own Jenn Dodd.

No Show: A One Woman Show, which premiered last Thursday, Oct 10, is filled with hilariously eccentric characters, each one funnier and more outrageous than the last. And yes, it is a show about no show. Brilliant, I know.

Jenn-and-NatalieWithout giving too much away, all I can say, is if you are in the NY area, Dodd’s show is a must see. Like really, you must go see it. Like, right now. Dodd and her show is interactive, ballsy and above all funny.

And don’t worry you still have time! “No Show” is playing at Stage Left Studio and runs the following dates:

October 17th 7:30 PM

October 18th 7:30 PM

October 19th 7:30 PM

October 24th 7:30 PM

October 25th 7:30 PM

Slutty but Funny

Natalie Wall likes to think she is a female comedian but the reality is she’s a NYC girl trying to make it big. If she’s not writing in her blog, Awkward Sex and the City, she’s spraying vanilla icing on a mini donut or thinking of ways to kill Dora from Dora the Explorer. Help her, humor her and fall in love with the pale pasty princess straight out of Compton (not really).

‘We Can’t Stop’ by Linda Roy

Sometimes Parenting Is a Strategic Hot Mess 

New parents take note: all the horror stories you’ve heard are true. Those little bundles of joyous DNA will bring you joy mixed with terror. A piece of advice; enjoy your freedom now, because despite your best efforts to lay down the Parenting Law, they will run your life. Sometimes in the best way, others…not so much.

You will be limited in the culinary sense on a regular basis. You will not sleep past six. Your days of open affection under your own roof will be over unless you want to hear a chorus of “ewws!”. Your little darlings will keep you up all night. They will scream when you try to leave the park – for the fifth time – and they will “split” you. In therapist terms, that means as soon as you say no, Mom, they go straight to Dad and get their third bowl of Doritos. They know wassup.

And watch that potty mouth of yours. It may be your mouth, but you can’t say what you want to unless you want to hear it repeated back to you at Thanksgiving Dinner while Aunt Edna has a heart attack.

You think you’ve got it all figured out? You don’t. You just gotta roll with the punches, homies. ‘Cause sometimes parenting is nothing but a strategic hot mess.

 

Lyrics by Linda Roy
Music by Miley Cyrus

 

It’s no party, we can’t do what we want

It’s no party, we can’t say what we want

It’s no party, we can’t eat what we want

We can’t kiss when we want

We can’t sleep when we want

 

Ay!

 

Sippy cups and smelly bodies everywhere

Toys in the air like they don’t care

‘Cause they aim to have so much fun now

Least somebody else might have some now [Read more...]

Commando ~ Song by Linda Roy

Commando 

by: Linda Roy
Music by: ABBA
Lyrics by: Linda Roy

From the Urban Dictionary:
Commando: Not wearing any underpants. “I’m goin’ commando today!” 

This is a delicate subject. It’s a little bit TMI, but I trust FnS readers… Some of you parents out there must have gone through it with your kids at some point. You must have! Okay, here’s the thing. My young son “M” has rug burn issues. I mean my gawd, how many pairs of Star Wars Underoos do we have to go through before he finally puts all this…behind him?  I’m at my wits rear end, people. He goes through so many pairs that I can’t keep up with the laundry. It gets to where I’m out buying extra packs of skivvies to fill his daily undergarment quota.

Yesterday the drawer was empty.

Without making the brief pilgrimage to Target, I was screwed. I was left with no choice but to tell him he’d need to go commando.

M: What’s commando? Is that like GI Joe? [Read more...]
