"You get to see the reality of this one storyline," Dessingue explains, "which is us doing this band. Then you see these portraits of people struggling in different areas, and it's like we're all one and the same. We've all been through that shit. We've all gone to the late-night shitty hangouts and drunk way too much. We've all had the five-minute slot to fill up at some godforsaken underground club and been treated like shit. We're all a bunch of troupers here."
Adds Potylo, "And possibly, someday, we'll help some really talented comedians and musicians stay in the area, living with something that is creatively fulfilling, instead of having to whore themselves out to corporate-function rooms and shitty comedy clubs, doing material that's not even close to what they're trying to express from inside."
