Doggies and Doppelgangers

by Ryan McFaul

In February I shot a pilot tape for IFC created by four girl comedy troupe Variety Shac. It’s a sketch show called “City Dog Park” where the four Shac girls meet up in the dog run and we throw to surreal, ridiculous sketches. The Shac (Shonali Bhowmik, Heather Lawless, Chelsea Peretti and Andrea Rosen) brought in a bunch of their celebrity comedian pals, including Sarah Silverman, Caroline Rhea, and Fred Armisen. We designed the sketches so that the scripted parts could support a healthy amount of improv. Hilarity ensued.

I won’t be able to post clips of the show anytime soon, so instead here’s a selection of frame grabs. And finally I have photographic proof that Fred Armisen and I are not, in fact, the same person.
