The only problem is that every single one of said comedians has a crush on one of the others, creating a love triangle that’s more like a love dodecahedron. As a result, as the patrons note, the club’s acts have as of late gotten more frenetic, the backstage banter louder and more acerbic; the stage is now filled with interruptions and digressions and hilarious yet somewhat uncomfortable improv and suspicious amounts of slapstick. And that’s only the beginning of their problems, as they’re faced by their toughest competitor yet: the lazily named Club Warai, a few blocks away, hailed by the Japan Times as the ‘cutting edge of Japanese alt-comedy...the avant-garde of oriental laughter.’ What will become of them if they can’t work together? If comedy is tragedy plus time, then prepare to die laughing, as they learn that the line between the comedy stage and life is much thinner than they thought!
Laconic: A bunch of comedians with crushes on each other cannot get along. Everything ensues.
Hello, person who clicked on this! This is, well, my skeleton of an RP: an absurd comedy RP with some nonetheless serious elements. Don't worry, it won't all be yuks; there will hopefully be a little bit of everything. But hopefully you will also laugh. A lot.
The goal for this is to create an atmosphere conducive to comedy by essentially letting people go ham, creating gags and plot points and scenes as they go along and entirely throwing out the realism rulebook. I have some plans for how I'll encourage this, but we'll see first if people are interested.
The point of reference I'm using for the ideal tone is somewhere between an anime like Nichijou and a more western-style stand-up comedy/slapstick sort of humor, where things are evidently outrageous and absurd but is not without genuine moments. So nothing like hardcore satire, but more like a character study that happens to also be hilarious.
Ideal number of RPers will be 6-8—any more than that and things might begin to seem cramped. But we'll see though.
Anyways, anyone interested? It's still somewhat skeletal, but things will fill out as time goes on.
Thank you for your time!
