LOS ANGELES— THE COMMENTS, a cunning satire of today’s Hollywood, where big screen success is often accompanied by online back-stabbing, debuts today on  YouTube. THE COMMENTS skewers the curiously modern phenomenon of online shaming as it plays out through the comments sections of media websites.

The comedy short stars Paul Scheer (THE LEAGUE, DADDY'S HOME), Kristen Schaal (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) and Ken Marino (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, BURNING LOVE). It also features a host of other stars, including Milo Ventimiglia (HEROES, THAT'S MY BOY), Beverly D'Angelo (VACATION), Natasha Leggero (ANOTHER PERIOD, LET’S BE COPS), Bobby Lee (MADTV), Charlie Saxton (HUNG, COOPER BARRETT'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING LIFE) and Theo Von (NO OFFENSE).

THE COMMENTS was produced by David Kang, Ross Otterman, J.P. McMahon and Tristan Drew, in conjunction with A Common Thread, Integrated Productions and Therapy Studios.

Notably, the comedy short included three 2015 Emmy-nominated crew members (Jeff Fuller, Jenny Eagan and Christian Hoffman) and one 2015 Emmy winner (Jeff Fuller). Award-winning cinematographer Maz Makhani handled DP duties.

THE COMMENTS was written and directed by Jim and Brian Kehoe. The Kehoe brothers are a hot writing team with projects set up all over town, including THE PACT, which is being produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (NEIGHBORS, THIS IS THE END, THE NIGHT BEFORE) and directed by Kay Cannon (PITCH PERFECT 1&2, NEW GIRL, 30 ROCK). The Kehoe Brothers are repped by Verve and DMG.
