UCB Comedy came to Brooklyn to shoot 'Underwear Cook-off Challenge' at Bay Ridge baked-goods mecca Robicelli's — and owners Matt and Allison even compete to make the most delicious drawers. Because all undies are edible if you know how to cook 'em.
Brooklyn comedy troupe skewers Hollywood whitewashing in their new Christian Bale epic parody "Slavery"
Today's the big day: the 87th annual Academy Awards. Perfect timing to share this Oscars® "For Your Consideration" video for Christian Bale's latest historical epic Slavery. According to Brooklyn-based sketch comedy troupe The Shorts Show, nobody but the mighty Welshman could properly tell the story of this tragic period in American history. Spoiler Alert: Bale is a slave.
The Art of Brooklyn asked The Shorts Show's creator Corey Scott Rutledge and director/writer/editor Nick Snow about making comedy videos, working as a team and why whitewashing in movies needs to be called out and mocked whenever possible. Read on for the interview and video!
It all started with a series of real voicemails left for Coney-Island-born filmmaker William D. Caballero by his grandfather. They congratulate, scold, and offer words of wisdom across a variety of topics ranging from birthdays to trips to Puerto Rico.
Will decided to turn these voicemails into a short film, and the beloved character of "Gran'pa" was born. We interviewed Will about his award-winning film, turning that film into a web series and his experiences at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.
Comedy and photography might seem to have nothing in common, but they're both about seeing everyday topics in a new way. Jenny Rubin has been making New Yorkers laugh for years and has recently discovered a new passion: taking pictures. Born and raised in the Village, she's also lived in Park Slope and Carroll Gardens.
The Art of Brooklyn sat down with Jenny to talk about her creative life and her new book of photographs, "New York Walk."
Our knucklehead pals over at The Shorts Show (aka Brooklyn's Worst) have imagined a world where Lincoln commercials meet True Detective on the NYC Subway. It's stupid in the best possible way.
