Online comedy network Above Average is rolling out a new content slate this week beginning with “Charles, Your Hangover,” a sketch series about a personified hangover named Charles.
The first episode of “Charles, Your Hangover,” which premiered today, features Lauren Lapkus (“Orange Is the New Black”) as a teacher who has to deal with Charles (played by Tony Stanton) after a night of drinking and grading papers.
“Charles, Your Hangover” is written and directed by Two Trick Pony, a sketch comedy group that partnered with Above Average on the project. New episodes will debut on the Above Average YouTube channel every Tuesday for the next six weeks, and will feature guest stars Brian Baumgartner (“The Office”) and Jessica Lowe, Echo Kellum, Michael Busch, and George Basil.
In addition to “Charles, Your Hangover,” Above Average has renewed its Kickstarter satire “Thingstarter,” which will debut tomorrow. Rounding out the slate, Above Average will premiere “That Couple You Know,” a new web series about the type of couple that loves each other but everyone else finds insufferable, on Thursday.
