The Exquisite Corpse Project is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Just in time for the holidays (well, certain holidays), The Exquisite Corpse Project can now be yours to own in a physical format that you can hold in your hands and put on your shelves and wrap up in gift wrap and give to your friends. Sure, you can still stream the movie online for only five bucks (still a great deal for the uninitiated!), but damn it, sometimes you want something tactile you can own, in this crazy ephemeral world that we live in. And since both the DVD and Blu-Ray are literally metaphorically stuffed to their gills with bonus features, you don’t have to feel like a sucker for buying the full package. Our virtual merch table also has posters, t-shirts, and an EP by Dave’s band The Wake Up Kings, featured in The Exquisite Corpse Project. Fun for the whole family!

The Time I Met Michel Gondry:

Raphael: I go, “Hey, I’m a really big fan of yours. This is really weird, but in the next show, we actually have a sketch that’s all about you. Like, just coincidentally we have this sketch that’s all about Michel Gondry.”
Ben: Never shown it to anybody yet.
Raphael: ”We’ve never shown it to anybody. This is the premiere of this sketch. We did not know you were gonna be here. Maybe you want to stick around and watch our show?” And he goes, “Mmm. It’s right now?” I go, “Yeah, yeah yeah. It’s right now.” He goes, “Mmm, ok.”

“Eh, no hard feelings.”

Hey everyone! Thanks to our incredible distribution partner Splitsider, our feature film, The Exquisite Corpse Project, is now available to download or stream online for just five dollars!

This is a big day for us, and we couldn’t be happier to finally share the film we’re so proud of with all of you. If you’d still like to see the movie live, in theatres, come out to one of our many upcoming screenings!

Below are some of the nice things people have been saying about the film:

Watch ThisSplitsider Presents ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project’ | Splitsider

Comedy website Splitsider just launched a new digital distribution label ‘Splitsider Presents’ and their first release is the hilarious feature film ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project.’ Available for $5 over at their website.

Director Ben Popik gathered together his former comrades from the legendary sketch group Olde English and tasked them with writing a movie. The catch: each of the five writers wrote 15 pages and only saw the previous five pages of the script. He then shot the movie they wrote, as well as documentary footage of the writing process and all the drama that it entailed, and put them all together into a unique comedy.

I had an opportunity to see the move last night and it is really something special. Besides being extremely funny and charming, it speaks volumes about the creative process, collaboration and friendship. The way the documentary aspect mirrors the narrative they wrote is fascinating. The film becomes much more than a silly project, but rather evolves into a statement about human nature and relationships. You definitely haven’t seen anything like it.

Go get it. For real. You won’t regret spending the $5.

Anyone who has ever been in a comedy group, or wants to know what it means to be in a comedy group, should watch this movie. It’s the single most moving and accurate depiction of the joy and horror of creative compromise that has ever been made. It’s also a rare dose of sincerity in an oftentimes too snarky comedy world. 

Congratulations to comedy brand Splitsider on the cool business move.

We’ve been looking forward to visiting Boston on our tour, and yesterday’s tragic events haven’t changed that.
Our Boston Premiere is scheduled for next Wednesday, but we need to sell 15 more tickets in the next 20 hours or else the event won’t happen! All proceeds from ticket sales to this screening will go to the Boston branch of the American Red Cross.
Our hearts go out to everyone in Boston. We hope to see you next week.
As for other cities, check our website to see when we’ll be coming to you. (Tickets are now available for New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.)

We’re coming to San Francisco! Spread the word! Tell everyone!

Hey, San Francisco Bay Area!

The Exquisite Corpse Project (Olde English’s new movie) is playing the historic Roxie Theater on February 2nd as part of the 12th annual San Francisco Sketchfest. This screening is a real homecoming for us as a group (San Francisco was one of the first festivals we ever played, and our favorite — we returned twice) and for me personally, since I grew up in the Bay Area and still have lots of friends and family there. I really want to fill this screening up with as many of my favorite people as I can, and maybe also meet some new favorite people there as well.

I think this is a really special movie and I’m awfully proud of it. Won’t you come see it?

The Exquisite Corpse Project in San Francisco
February 2, 2013
10pm at the Roxie Theater
w/ Colin Mahan’s Preview: The Movie

BUY TICKETS HERE. BUY TICKETS NOW.

The Exquisite Corpse Project is coming to San Fran! I’ll also be performing standup on the Rooftop Comedy Showcase earlier that night at StageWerx. It’s gonna be a blast.

And for everyone asking when they’ll get to see the film outside of a film festival — and there’s been a lot of you! — it’s all happening in 2013.

“This is a film that was engineered to be the best possible product, not the easiest sell or to fit perfectly into a known genre. The product is stellar, and in an ideal world, that should carry the most weight. The reality is that the film faces some obvious marketing challenges: The film doesn’t feature any known stars (at least yet), and it’s not the easiest concept to communicate to closed minds in limited time. The sad and scary truth is that such marketing challenges could potentially prohibit a film this excellent from reaching the audience it deserves. But, fuck that nonsense. The Exquisite Corpse Project is a smart, funny film made by smart, funny people. I see no reason why smart, funny people shouldn’t embrace it as long as they’re made aware of its existence.” Abe Schwartz: The Exquisite Corpse Project: Fresh New Docu-Comedy Seeks Audience

Last night, our movie THE EXQUISITE CORPSE PROJECT won the Audience Award at the Dances With Films Festival here in Los Angeles. Obviously, we’re thrilled.
All week, people have been telling us how much they loved the movie. A pregnant woman said her husband asked her to leave the screening partway-through, because he was afraid her laughing so hard would be bad for the baby somehow. One filmmaker brought his mother to see every movie in the festival and after watching ours, she asked him, “Why don’t you make movies like that?”
If you live in LA and you didn’t see our movie last weekend, there’s a SECOND CHANCE SCREENING this Saturday (tomorrow) afternoon at the LA New Wave International Film Festival. You can buy tickets here. We’re in BLOCK TWO.
If you don’t live in LA and want to see The Exquisite Corpse Project, like our Facebook page to stay up to date on when we’ll be screening in a city near you, or when you can buy the movie for yourself. We have a lot of exciting news, just around the corner!
