Video Licks: Get A Taste of THE VERTICAL, A Delicious New Food Culture Satire
If I wasn’t knee-deep in comedy, I think I’d really dig being a paid foodie, as long as I wasn’t working at company like the fictitious Nosh News. In this new web series from writer/director Jess Adamiak (Reductress, UCB’s SketchCram, BoogieManja), a bunch of disturbed food editors get their hands dirty bringing culinary news to the masses. The creator’s experience with publications like Bon Appétit and Food & Wine really give The Vertical that satirical bite. The show started as a live sitcom for the Reckless Theatre’s Fighter Pilots competition in New York and is now a 6-part series. The cast includes Makena Miller, Lida Darmian, Jack Gallagher, Kate Donat, Adrian Burke, Maggie Maxwell, and Jenny Gorlick. Watch newbie Bree (Lida Darmian) slowly lose it as she gets a sampling of the gritty world of insane content goals, taste tests and rich, dumb interns. Catch the FIRST THREE episodes NOW!
