Project Main Details

FIRE a Ken Burns film parody 
Mommy Comedy consists of two ''up and coming'' (aka broke) writer/directors (Ryan Kelly & Andrew Heder) who've been making sketch comedy for almost a year now. They've won multiple awards for their sketches ''Hollywood Kisser'' and ''Outsource your Road Rage''––and have over 275,000 views on their Youtube channel (


This 6 minute short documentary (spoof) will will play out like a slightly different version of Ken Burns' Jazz. But instead of telling the story of how Jazz changed American culture forever, we'll be telling the story of how the discovery of fire changed caveman culture forever.

In the piece, expert interviewees might say things like "Fire changed these cavepeople's diets forever"––cut to a black & white archival photo of two cavemen eating in-n-out burger.

And yes, my writing partner Andrew and I will be getting into full caveman makeup and shooting these archival photos to use in the piece. ;)

I'm sure you've heard this before, but Andrew and I live paycheck to paycheck, spending every dollar we can on our sketch comedy. If you are flexible with your rate / or are looking to build your reel / or just think this idea sounds fun (and it is!)––please submit with our tiny budget in mind.

Script Details

Fire. An act of chemical combustion that releases heat and light. It nourishes. It protects. It destroys. It can help us achieve greatness, or become our worst enemy.

The ways in which it shapes our day-to-day experience is manifold. We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who first kindled a flame, and we must look back at those pioneers who were the first to feel it’s power. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
