Channel 101

Channel 101 Channel 101 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit short film festival hosted monthly at the Downtown Independent Theatre in Los Angeles. For the audiences that attend the live screenings, Channel 101 is a chance to sit in the worn-out chair of the fat network exec, drunk on the blood of lowly artists whose right to exist is given in exchange for their ability to nourish.

If there are 10 shows in the screening and 7 of them are good, that means 2 good shows aren't coming back and the power of life and death is in your hands. Base your decision on whatever you want. You run the network. You pick the programming. Then come back in a month and see the next episodes of the shows you picked- plus a healthy crop of new pilots.

When talking about the history of Channel 101, it’d be impossible not to mention the Jack of all trades and master of those aforementioned trades @kelsyabbott . The number of shows she has come up with, can you even begin to imagine what must be going on in her brain? Probably not, because Kelsy is truly one of a kind. She’s gone on to write for Apple & Onion, Twelve Forever, Uncle Grandpa, and The Fungies! Thank you so much for all the incredible work you’ve graced us with Kelsy.

Many may know @mattgourley for his work on Drunk History, Superego, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and much much more, BUT only true fans - the really dedicated ones who have earned Mr. Gourley’s love, respect, and a little smooch on the cheek schedule permitting - have seen all his work on Channel 101. I’m talking Ultra Force, Fastest Samurai in the West, Time Belt, and Laser Fart. Check ‘em out! Thank you Matt for being a part of our history (drunk or sober) and a part of our community

Happy Legacy Month everyone! Over the next week we’ll be posting tributes to some of our beloved creators from years past, so without further ado, let’s get started!

There are many dynamic duos of the world: Spock and Kirk, Han and Chewbacca, Ren and Stimpy, Peanut Butter and Jelly…. But by far, there’s no one else like @timheidecker and @ericwareheim These two have perfected the art of making our skin crawl. We are forever grateful that we can call them part of our Channel 101 community due to them submitting the classic: My 2 Fathers. Through that show, audiences learned that a picture really can speak a thousand words.
