The eternal question, “When did you give up on your dreams?” maybe answered in the newest episode of JACK IN A BOX titled ““THE PEST.”
March 26th, 2012, New York, NY– Downtown fixtures Cole Escola (Logo’s Jeffery & Cole Casserole) & Becca Blackwell (Untitled Feminist Show) and Comedian Katina Corrao (The Good Neighbor Minute) return to Michael Cyril Creighton’s critically acclaimed web sitcom, JACK IN A BOX, which was a nominee for the 2012 Writers Guild of America Award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing Original New Media and was the winner of Best Web Series at the 2010 New York Television Festival. The series is in its fourth and final season.
In the 27th episode of the series, “THE PEST”, the computers freeze at the Ticket Universe, causing Suzie (Corrao) and Beau (Escola) to become petulant and Jack (Creighton) to confront Kris (Blackwell) about the staffing situation in the box office while attempting to awkwardly bond with her . Meanwhile, Beau (Escola) gives Jack a taste of his own medicine by whining, being nosy and attempting to aggressively bond. The question is this: Who’s the bigger pest? Jack or Beau?
THE PEST, which was shot & edited by Jim Turner and written by Creighton.
“JACK IN A BOX” was nominated for the 2012 Writers Guild of America Award for Writing Original New Media and won Best Web Series at the 2010 New York Television Festival. The show focuses on Jack, a mild-mannered young man with a BFA in acting and no life skills. He took a job at a theater box office because it didn’t involve heavy lifting, wearing a blazer or using Excel. A few years and thousands of customers later, Jack finds himself less mild-mannered and less young than ever before. Watch Jack try to manage his anger while navigating an insular universe where everyone is even more unstable than he is. Like all caged animals, he is going to throw his sh*t at you sooner or later… but first he’s going to eat a cupcake and take a phone call from his mom. Service with a smirk, that’s all you can ask for.
