The Escapist Film Festival 2010: Show About Games Show

Show About Games Show

The following program is a show about games... show.

A variety show, one day to be filled with sketches, mocumentaries, and plentiful shenanigans for all.

Watch Video

This is the only video in the Film Festival so far that I've laughed at.

The first sketch was hilarious, and the second was decent. You're clearly going for a Tim & Eric Awesome Show vibe, and it seems to be working.

This was my favorite too of the ones I've seen so far.

Good start, may more votes come your way. First one I've actually laughed at.

lol'd so hard at the Trails HD guy.
First vid i watched! Off to browse the others

Agreed with others when I say this one actually made me laugh. I like the "bunch of short sketches in one episode" format.

Dear Sir\Madam

Thank you for making me laugh for the first time in 40 minutes after I have started watching the Escapist Film Festival!

I loved the first Sketch, but the sketches that followed began to lose their flavour. But the very last of the bunch really did live up to the humour of the first sketch.

Thanks for entertaining me, you have my vote and best of luck!


I enjoyed it. Refreshing to see something light and upbeat and the variety show style is grossly underused today. I'm rooting for this one.

First video I've seen in the festival to make me laugh outloud. Or at all. Loved the Xbox scene and the cut-out Claptrap, and the Cooking Mama transitions. I definitely want to see more from you, so I'll be keeping this one in mind. =3

Edit: Yeah, the Trails HD guy was awesome.

So, some SNL style comedy skits, huh? Personally, I'd like to see this kind of thing on a twice-a-week schedule rather than several in one day, but that's just me. Also,, would the skit-change animation always be CM or would it change? Just something I'm curious about. Otherwise, I loved the video, especially the CC knights. Would like to see more. (in general, but the CC knights would be welcome)

Excellent job! I hope you guys win, you were genuinely funny

Your comic timing needs a little work (noticeable dead space), but the material is clearly there. Hope you have another 20 episodes worth...

Oh, and maybe it's just me, but I would have deleted the Trials HD guy without hesitation.

the first skit happens to me all the time. i hate deleting old games

What I love about sketch shows is you can get so much variety into such a short space of time. Laughed so much at some points (especially Godzilla-Mama!), I think this could be a real contender.

One gripe though, I'm pretty sure you guys are "" not the "uberfrienship" you put at the end.

P.S. If Freudasaur doesn't appear in the future I am going to be so disappointed with you...

yo guys, this is hilarious! good luck on winning!

Really funny and looks skillfully put together...

Holy crap that was hilarious.
The first one with the the game characters had me laughing all the way through.
You've just got an awesome sense of timing.

Wow that was really funny! And you guys got multiple sketches in under 5 minutes! Loved how you pulled the sketches together with the cooking mama joke. Great work!

thumbs pointed in an upward direction

Trials HD guy needs his own series.

Bahaha, I signed up just for vote for this. x] I WANT TO SEE MORE LIFE MAMA LOL.

You guys seriously need to win. Or continue this series elsewhere!


After watching almost all the First Cuts, I'd just like to reiterate my opinion that this is by far the best series in the competition. For some reason, my video stopped before the giant Cooking Mama at the end last time, but luckily in my second view I saw it. That was the hardest I've laughed in a while.

Right now, you are on par with the humor of Doraleous & Associates, but in your own unique way. That's a very very good thing.

I hope you guys win. This show is exactly what The Escapist needs.

Trials HD guy for the win!

Seriously though, this was very good. I was laughing so hard all the way through. Voted!

I vote this should win to the max

I feel like the first full sketch dragged on for way longer than it needed to. It didn't quite build up to as chaotic a finish as I'd like, and I feel like some of the earlier jokes ("Totek agree" "shut up totek") didn't need to be there and just stretched the sketch on longer than it needed to. The second sketch also seemed to go on too long.

I can honestly say this is the only video that I actually laughed at. Fantastic work hope you guys win!

Best of the winners.

The 1st one's animation was weak and the subject matters been done to death (also better elsewhere like VG cats' Super Effective).

The RPG gaming group's shot very well and the acting's on. It's good but I'm a little weary of DnD as a subject (already have I Hit it with my Axe on the site).

This show was funny though. Not every acting/bit was tight (like the Lara Croft disappointment with tribal guy) but enough jokes worked to make it good.

Glad that this won. The other 2 winners were decent but this is my favourite of the 3 by far. I loved all the sketches and none of them dragged on too long (the bane of sketch comedy imo). The evil cooking mama was great, the trials hd guy was great and "more like 10 close shaves" was great. Alltogether pretty fucking great.

First half was okay, but you really lost me at the end. I guess all you need is some Portal music, and a few obscure references to win everyone over tho.

I would love to see what else you can do after this.

Hilarious and well made. Awesome, too.

That is so awesome. Reminds me of Sanity Not Included (if you've ever seen it) but live action. Absolutely love it. I will follow the series intently.

I liked all of them. Also, by Micheal Shanks do they mean "The" Micheal Shanks?
