This was funny in a sad way.  

Comedy is quite challenging and I think this rises to the challenge. My personal favorite part was the vomit hitting the back of Socky.  I think the irony of foul language being belted out on a childrenís show in front of children works. You did a good job capturing the cheapness of the set and costume of this public access program.

The only plot hole is that itís hard for a public access program to get cancelled. Production is not driven by ratings. People produce their own material on their own nickel. Broadcast time is usually free and is arranged with the local cable company. Itís not actually necessary to explain exactly why the show is cancelled but I think there is a joke opportunity there. I donít know what the joke is but the idea of a program on public access having such problems that they discontinue production must be unusual and probably pretty funny.

Itís possible that the reason for this being the last recording may have been evident, but I get the feeling that the drunken problems of this episode were new and unique and that other problems already existed and lingered.
