WHAM CITY COMEDY
Wham City (Alan Resnick, Robby Rackleff, Ben O’Brien, and Cricket Arrison) is a comedy & video collective known for their bizarre viral videos and absurdist presentational performances. They have created a series of infomercials for Adult Swim including Unedited Footage of a Bear, Live Forever As You Are Now W/ Alan Resnick, Commencement Speech, and most recently This House Has People In It.
“In the circles of American avant-garde comedy, Adult Swim has hosted its masters for some time now. Shows such as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and The Eric Andre Show have both captivated and held hostage their late-night viewership. In these circles, deeply embedded in Adult Swim’s 4 am time slot, you can find the diverse work of Wham City Comedy/AB Video Solutions. Mainly composed of a Baltimore-based comic quintet (Cricket Arrison, Ben O’Brien, Dina Kelberman, Robby Rackleff, Alan Resnick), they weave elaborate ARGs, layers upon layers of selfless irony, and absurd horror for their audience through shorts such as This House Has People In It, Live Forever As You Are Now with Alan Resnick, and Unedited Footage of a Bear. They have also found work through IFC, with their cultist mini-series The Mirror.”
