Alabama Comedy Shorts

"China Town"

Jonathan, nicknamed 'China Town', is an aspiring Chinese rapper. His first time in the recording studio is a very interesting one. What started out as a simple recording session leaves him and the producer in more trouble than they bargained.

"Julie On Her Way"

Julie is on a mission to find happiness again.


A young Suitor has a problem. He wants to impress the future in-laws but nothing seems to going right in this fast paced tale of proposal-gone-wrong told in reverse. Reality? Or is it all in his head? We romp through the fall out of the Suitor's one decision. Starring veteran performers Andrew Masset (One Life to Live) and Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live) as the In-Laws; 'Poopsy' and 'Pearl' and newcomers Carissa Capobianco (Secretariat) and Todd Denson (We Are Marshall) as 'Princess' and 'The Suitor.'

"Office Hours"

Professor Shelhouse holds weekly office hours during which students stop by to express concerns, make excuses, grouse, or whatever.


When an embarrassing set of events leads a young professional to quit his job, he finds himself stuck in one awkward job interview after another.

"One Of Us"

While driving on a seemingly deserted country road, an easily annoyed older man encounters and then hits a woman with his truck but rather than die in a really painful way she immediately recuperates and heads into the woods. The old man follows and becomes lost and while searching for a way out he encounters several other creatures of the woods whom he must battle to the death.

"Why I Make Movies"

A short explanation of one filmmaker's unsatisfying life at work and home but glamorous lifestyle when he's accepted into film festivals.

"Dead Ahead"

A small southern town experiences a leak at the local nuclear reactor, awakening the recently-deceased 'polka queen' Veta Lou Watson, along with a horde of others. Among those that fight off the ghoulish horde are a sheriff and his deputy, an suburban family, a couple of backwoods idiots, and a cemetery caretaker who may or may not have fallen off the wagon. Filled with a wonderful collection of characters and plenty of laughs, Dead Ahead is a southern-fried zombie horror comedy with a heart (and BRAINS!)
