Recent Columbia SOA Graduate Wins Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition

Comedy Central and the New York Television Festival have announced that Ben Seccombe (’12 SOA) has won the 2013 Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition.

Family Bum stars Clint Carmichael, Aaron Glaser and Desiree Cooper as a happy-go-lucky family whose world is upended by Moonrock (played by Seccombe himself), an alcoholoic homeless man bent on wreaking havoc on the 90’s TGIF style sitcom. Seccombe’s goal with this series was to explore what it would feel like to punch Joey Gladstone [everybody’s favorite Full House comedian uncle] in the face while at the same time paying homage to shows he grew up with.
 
Seccombe will receive $7,500 for the honor and a potential development deal with Comedy Central.
