We Chat With Chess Club Comedy
The NYC-based sketch comedy group Chess Club Comedy is a hit on Dailymotion. Their co-director and co-founder David Sidorov honored us with an exclusive interview.
DAILYMOTION: How was Chess Club Comedy created? Can you tell us a little bit about the group’s beginnings?
DAVID: Danny (Jolles), Matt (Rogers), and I were all in a sketch group together at NYU called, Hammerkatz. After we graduated, we all wanted a way to keep making sketch comedy with our friends, so we decided to start Chess Club.
DAILYMOTION: How long did it take between your first idea of the project and the upload of your first video?
DAVID: We decided to start making videos in the spring of 2011, we started shooting some over that summer, and we released our first video (“Icebreakers“) in the late fall. So, probably 8 or 9 months total.
DAILYMOTION: If you could choose a favorite of your videos, which one would it be?
DAVID: Personally, I like “Oscar Nominations” because it was really ambitious production-wise, and I think we were able to pull off a lot of fun stuff on zero budget. It also has a photoshop of Kathy Bates covered in cream cheese, which is something that none of our other videos have.
DAILYMOTION: What’s next for Chess Club Comedy?
DAVID: The three of us that founded the group are all in different cities right now (Los Angeles, New York, Chicago), so writing together is a challenge, but we’re still working on new videos and are hoping to release some soon!
