In the beginning, there was the new, flashy autocorrect function on smartphones. Approximately one minute after that invention, the first epic screw-up happened thanks to clumsy typing, turning your innocent invite to mom’s Christmas dinner into something way more disastrous — usually sexual – and laugh-out-loud funny!
Director Karl Stelter and Writer-Actors, Christina Myers (Big Eyes, Swim Little Fish Swim) and Meredith Riley Stewart (Devious Maids, The Wolf of Wall Street) use real text conversations as the jumping-off point for a weekly sketches that use the dialogue as though someone actually meant what they said …and in person. Awkwardness and wild antics ensue. With the energy of SNL standouts like Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey, Christina and Meredith morph into wildly diverse characters, leaving no area of the imagination unexplored. Some scripts verge into over-the-top, sexually bold, yet hilarious territory, a la Amy Schumer. Every type of slang for ‘the vagina’ has occurred in autcorrect text screw-ups, and in turn, in these sketches!
Each vignette is quick, in-your-face funniness – snackable and shareable in today’s fast-paced media consumption environment. Unfortunately, the audience will be able to empathize with most of the situations. But more importantly, they’ll laugh out loud at these characters – Amish women, baking ladies, a beatnik in bad theater, moms, and more.
AutocorrectFU is the brainchild of collaborators Christina Myers, Meredith Riley Stewart and Karl Stelter. The trio can be found on YouTube (bit.ly/watchACFU) in the same camp as Smosh, Convos with My 2-Year-Old, and Tripp and Tyler. They are also on their own Funny or Die (FOD) channel, soaking up the laughs alongside a few of their own favorites, such as Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns.
