Saving Face is up on You Tube and Bobbie Oliver and I are damn proud of it. We wrote, produced and starred in it (go figure.) Chris Oliver, Bobbie’s hubby, wrote, filmed and edited it as well as playing himself. He had a scene where he was somewhat insensitive to Bobbie but after twenty something years of marriage, that happens. We play ourselves but just like in stand up, we blow up the truth a little. Saving Face is about two women in their mid forties who do comedy and are surrounded by young hot chicks,dudes, and people their own age, all of whom treat them like shit. In future episdoes we plan to have some older people crapping on us as well (Figuratively. Don’t get to excited. That guy just got fours years jailtime for that) That being said, Bobbie and I have a lot of great friends in this town, many of whom lent their talents to Saving Face and/or opened their wallets for our Kickstarter.
The feedback and support has been really great. I learn from every comment and see the good in it. If someone says “I expected more from you guys.” They may mean more cursing, nudity or drug use and they are impressed by our restraint. If they go on to say “I’m really disappointed,” it could mean they really wanted more of a softcore porn experience. Luckily for them there is so much free porn on the web. I think you could fill up your entire day surfing porn and never pay for it. It’s so refreshing to meet a guy who actually pays for a porn site, or gets perverted DVDs in the mail, or just straight up offers to pay for sex instead of endless calls, texts and emails. Where’s that guy?
Anyway, we are very grateful with all the love and support we received with our pilot episode of Saving Face and are working the second episode.. There are two ways to be in it- one let us know or just be talented in front of us, and two is say something harsh to us in real life and we will at least write about you.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on bobbie oliver.
