  • Un-Supermarket

    Un-Supermarket follows the whimsical up's and down's of three jaded cashiers at their local grocery store. Ever wonder what your average retail worker is really thinking? This dark comedy shines a light on some of the attitudes and truths associated with the industry. Though at times cynical, the characters have a sense of humour about their positions and the situations they face on a day to day basis. After all, cashiering is a monotonous job, sometimes you just have to make a joke and not take yourself so seriously... The main characters Val, Rick, and Tish sure don't!

  • The Creeps

    A feel-good comic about two unnamed characters and their delightful journeys through universally hilarious themes like hatred, misery, uncontrollable rage, disease and rash, delusion, agoraphobia, paranoia, jealousy, greed, bitterness, binge eating, slothfulness, and death, lots and lots of death; also, deformity, flatulence, boogers, nosebleeds, bowel movements, and the eating of unappetizing things.
