Powerloafing
February 2, 2006 12:29 PM   Subscribe

Anyone presently surfing the net at work may appreciate Powerloafing w/ Cubicle Carl. This miniature sitcom about a guy who goofs off takes place entirely in a cubicle – an admittedly thin premise that delivers more comedy than expected, with the current episode placing that cubicle on the Starship Enterprise. It’s co-produced by an Emmy award winning comedy writer, (Mr. Show, Chris Rock Show, Mad TV) and a group of alt-comedians you'll recognize if you're a comedy nerd, including: supernerd Brian Posehn and supergeek Blaine Capatch. Interesting side note: it’s shot on a fake office set in a small apartment in North Hollywood. Everyone works for free, even the semi-celebs, and it’s Creative Commons,. NSFW, due to undeniable goof-off element.

That was a helluva lot funnier than I expected. Big Boss is awesome. And it was surprisingly well-produced, given the homebrewed set.

These are great. I really like "Nope, Nope."

That is a great show. Better than any TV sitcoms I've seen by far.

I want to forward the Computer Guy episode to my coworkers, but then they'd know that I've been power-loafing. But the moral of the story is an important one for them to learn! I'm torn.

Hmmm.. I guess I don't live in a cubicle but that wasn't very funny at all. Perhaps the Star Trek bit put me off...

The boss seems to be the same guy that played Mr. Lynch on Home Movies.

With all the funny stripped out.

Hey, thanks interrobang! I was wondering why he sounded familiar.

Yup. Dude's name is Ron Lynch.

These are great! The jokes and story are perfectly scaled. This would be tedious in a 22-minute format. (I have a friend who gets bored with Office Space in about 3 and a half minutes.)
