The type of coffee you order says a lot about you. Maybe you ask for a Mocha because you don’t actually like the taste of coffee but want to look like you’re drinking one. Maybe you ask for an ‘Expresso’ because you don’t realise that that’s not what it’s called. Or maybe, like the guy (above)y…you’re just a dick.

Hell is other people. It’s also the 1999 Smash Mouth single “All Star“. We cast a critical eye over both in our latest cheapo comedy short “Rat Race” – starring Liam Hourican (top) and Cillian Ó Gairbhí.

 Here’s the latest cheapo comedy sketch from Brainy Films about Neighbours; not the TV show, the arsehole guy who lives next door. Stars Clare Monnelly (off of “Moone Boy”, and in “Big Maggie” in the Gaiety right now, Leaving Cert fans) and David Layde.

“Does pressing the button at a pedestrian crossing actually *do* anything? This issue is explored in absolutely no detail in our latest cheapo comedy short “Julian”,
starring Liam Hourican and Cillian Ó Gairbhí.”
