MTV greenlights another sketch comedy

human giantI think MTV is going after the YouTube generation with its latest programming decisions. Earlier this week, the network announced it had picked up eight episodes of a sketch comedy show called Nick Cannon: Short Circuitz. Now, it has also picked up a sketch/short film comedy series by internet viral video creators, Human Giant. The comedy group produces short films that MTV describes as "recklessly hilarious". Some of the group's most popular clips include Shutterbugs and The Illusionators. The comedy troupe also has a big following in New York where they do live shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre. I checked out the videos and I recognize one of the cast members, Rob Huebel, as the Inconsiderate Cell Phone Guy shown before movies who says, "It's pronounced kah-rah-tay." The first eight episodes are scheduled to air in early 2007.

Rob Huebel is also on Best Week Ever (imsnho, best comedy on TV), likewise for Paul Scheer. I think Jason Woliner directs the show too. Aziz Ansari has some GREAT shorts out on the YousTubes, esp. 'World's Shittiest Mixtape."

Oh yeah, and all 4 are featured in School for Scoundrels
