Born and raised in Pasadena Newfoundland, a small town kid with some deep media roots. Happy and excited about new avenues to create and grow, I have travelled abroad, took risks and learned from my mistakes. Humbled by opportunities and chances to learn new things. I smile too much and speak my mind while making the most of any situation.

    I really love the name Hit With A Rock. From what I can tell, it's like Beachcombers meets Seinfeld with a little bit of The Office mixed into one, but I'd love to see a few more missions to get a better understanding of where you're going to go with it.

    Funny. Loved the short, quick shots in the clip. Able to show a lot of different personalities in a quirky but put together piece. I love Newfoundland.

    The teaser leaves a lot to the imagination, and I have a feeling the talent can come through with some serious comedy!

    I'm a little biased because I got to have a tiny part in a couple of skits before I went back to teaching...but... I know how hard this group works, how talented they are and how funny/quirky the show is. I was gonna be modest and give it a 9 but I really think it deserves to be seen so...10 it's a 10. :)

    It's good to see more comedy happening within Newfoundland and Labrador! Hit With A Rock promises what every comedy group should aim to achieve: laughs, entertainment, and yet, intelligent design/writing with evocative subject-matter. Keep going guys!

    Are you allowed a longer trailer? If so, edit a longer commercial with more of your stuff! I know I've seen a few of your videos online, so make the best of the time you have! I really like the execution on the hot-dog sketch; it gets rather silly and I hope every other sketch holds up as well. You guys are going to be facing stiff competition, because sketch comedy is a broad swathe. So keep on your toes and good luck - you're way better than the other sketch-comedy offering from NL!

    Hit With A Rock be all like, "We don't need to use the 90 seconds, bishes!" Five out of five hotdogs for brevity. :)
