Several of you may have noticed as the production stills from our new webseries Doormen. The Award-Winning Webseries have been slowly released (see HERE), the actor playing opposite myself as the other doorman is not Matt Clevy, as we previously announced.
In the lead up to filming, with everything going on I just didn’t have time to make the announcement about the change in casting. Nothing dramatic happened. It’s just way these things go sometimes. Clevy has his own sketch team Mpire Comedy who are also in production of their own webseries New In Town, and he felt like I couldn’t devote the time to both his own webseries and Doormen and be fair to both projects. And so he stepped down. Which is an unbelievably noble thing to do. But don’t worry. You’ll be seeing plenty of him in other PJ Party Comedy videos in the future.
So do me 2 favors.
1) Check out the first episode of Mpire Comedy’s New In Town here on YouTube.
and 2) Help me welcome Ben Burrow who is now playing, or has played, Matt B in Doormen. The Award-Winning Webseries.
Honestly it was amazing to work with Ben. Jumping into a project of this scale last minute like he did is incredibly difficult, and a lot of hard work, and Ben did it as though it was nothing.
And it was a lot of fun for me personally because having written these characters I thought I knew everything about them, (and since they’re supposed to be basically the same person I thought I knew everything about BOTH of them). But then working side by side with someone like Ben, we were able to discover some brand new things in both Matts that I never knew existed. It was a blast!
It was amazing working with him. Season 1 of Doormen. The Award-Winning Webseries. isn’t even out yet, and I can’t wait to start working on Season 2!
So check out these screen grabs below of Ben Burrow as Matt B in Doormen. The Award-Winning Webseries.
