Ed & Ed – Trapped

By Jeff Pitcher


Alone. Depressed. Isolated. Dejected. Ah, the elements of Newfoundland comedy! The fishery is closed. The wife’s gone. Can anyone bring Ed out of his morose depression? The other Ed thinks he can. Caricatures, comedic situations and ridiculous lines but with an undercurrent of seriousness.
