“The Public Access Show,” a YouTube and terrestrial TV series created by local musician and comedian Arjun Singh, is inspired by the everyday lo-fi madness of terrestrial public access television. The show features absurd comedy without the confrontational, “theater of discomfort” feel we’ve come to expect from art that touches on the hilarity of amateurism. Basically, it’s a “Tim And Eric” that doesn’t kind of make you want to kill yourself.
The use of original music and “open source” video art in a collaborative spirit really plays on the use of the name. The second installment features more of Singh’s winning “Advanced Drum Techniques,” as well as a cameo by Singh’s WALLPAPER bandmate Ricky Reed, among other sketches.
Much like WALLPAPER., the line between spoof and celebration is blurry. You’ll end up wanting more than the 12 minutes you’ll get. Check out the first two installments and wait by your computer for the requisite “Episode 3D“!
