New Cork comedy group CCCahoots have just produced their first short film and you can sense from the production quality they know what they are doing.
The team have previous form creating, writing and performing in different web series for RTE’s Republic of Telly and short drama platform Storyland about a man who is in love with himself.
The trio have now created a new short film based a around a group of hipsters in Cork. The mockumentary style film is a taster for a longer narrative about a family who start a funeral business.
Tadgh Hickey of CCCahoots said – “I think Cork humour is unique. It’s really kinda dark humour and all the guys from CCCahoots love cringe stuff. Larry David was big with us and Ricky Gervais. Any type of comedy where the characters just seem realer than real. Not so much slap stick funny, more it’s funny because it’s real. I also think that hasn’t been done that much in an Irish context. Ireland is famous for Father Ted but we’re trying to do an Irish take on cringe comedy.”
The trio are also embracing the growth of new Irish comedy sketch groups along with the likes of Fupin Eejits and Foil Arms and Hog with some LIVE shows now planned.
CCCahoots play live at Dolan’s, Limerick on April 21st, Roisín Dubh, Galway April 28th, St Luke’s, Cork May 6th, and Whelan’s, Dublin on May 11th.
