Life Sucks - Episode 4: Manstration

WHAT?! Almost exactly 2 years ago, we released Life Sucks, and now the 4th Episode has 100K views. Insane. Huge thanks to a weird YouTube algorithm and legions of curious/horrified pre-teens for watching our epic 9/11 “period” piece.

If you’ve only watched this one episode, I recommend checking out the other 5 in the series, there’s a lot to like – a heist, a musical, a boy-girl sleepover, more time travel, a love triangle, and of course, more Jonah Feldman.

Ally gets her first period and gets to stay home from school. Jake, jumping on the "no school” bandwagon does everything he can to convince his mom he has hi...

Happy birthday to the one, the only Nate Taylor-Leach! It’s been such an honor and joy to have you as part of the Dinner for One family for 8 years! We couldn’t do it without your commitment, creativity, versatility, intensity, your down right silliness...and of course your deep knowledge of all things Tolkien and Beatles. We love you, your infectious laugh and your majestic ability to grow a beard!

Ride the wave of the pocket and watch JOHNNY POCKETS in collaboration with Brian Alexander Cheney-Peters, Nathan Chang, Corey Sheppard and Halleloo Productions. So fun to be a part of this! Check out this tale of too many pockets.

Johnny Pockets is HERE! When we got the script for Johnny pockets during our script writing contest there was no question that we had to make it.

It was so much fun to dive into this weird world that Brian Alexander created for Johnny Pockets. When trying to decide who to cast we knew that the only crew talented enough to pull this off was the incredible people over at Dinner for one Comedy. Ian Wexler did an incredible job directing this fun little short.

Our Story

All graduates of Boston's Emerson College, dfor1 is comprised of actors, writers, filmmakers, sound designers and directors. Dinner For One is a sketch comedy collective that pumps new life into New York City’s sketch comedy scene like a shot of adrenaline slammed into Uma Thurman’s chest cavity. They are theatrical, silly and unapologetic. Their shows put an emphasis on the dark and absurd, and lean more on characters to drive the show. In addition to creating the award winning independent TV series Life Sucks, their online sketches have been featured on the front pages of Funny or Die, Splitsider and HuffPo Comedy. They have also performed to sold-out crowds across the country, headlining sketch festivals in NYC, Chicago and New Orleans.

WARNING: Dinner for One cannot be held responsible for intense fits of laughter, shortness of breath, dementia, sharting, Poptarts and acceptance of life's larger truth.
