The sketches mine everyday situations very well. Is it a conscious decision to not go absurdist even as you're heightening scenarios?
It absolutely is a conscious decision to ground all the scenes, whether it's emotionally grounded or the language is relatable, even down to how the women or the characters are dressed, so that if we go to an absurd place, like “F**k, Marry, Kill,” for example, that's absurd in itself. You don't want to compete with that. You want it to be presented in the purest form. Crazy wigs or big costume choices would cloud what's funny about the sketch. The approach is to ground the characters, especially when we go to an absurd place, and that makes it way funnier and way more relatable, because then you're watching, going, “Oh my God, that could be me and my friends after work.” We treat it completely straight, completely real, and that's where the comedy is. When we're approaching scenes, [we ask] what's relatable, what's the emotional truth of the scene, and allow the premise to be the star of the sketch.
