Yellow Brick Hell
Television (Short and Comedy) Actor Yellow Brick Hell is where grand ambitions hits the harsh pavement of reality. Set in NYC, Jack's enormous expectations are the exact opposite of his current conditions. Jack struggles to make rent,, lives on an IKEA coach in a tiny one-bedroom apartment overlooking a polluted canal that he shares with an intensely paranoid 40-year-old roommate, all the while trying to find work as a comedian. Each episode focuses on a different aspect of Jack's life: i.e. financial, romantic, family, environmental, creative, etc; each are in constant states of agitation.
