Alyssa Learns to Drive
Comedy • Comedy, Short Films, 29-Apr-2022
When Sandy and Mitra get into trouble, they come to their friend Alyssa for help. “Alyssa Learns to Drive,” written by and starring Sandy Honig, Mitra Jouhari, and Alyssa Stonoha, is an ingeniously silly sketch that cycles through a smorgasbord of random accents, absurd phrasings, botched language, and ludicrous plot twists. Sandy and Mitra purchase new knives, and they are eager to test them out. They stab each other to confirm they work — good news, they work; bad news, now they have to get to the hospital. They plead for a ride from their friend Alyssa but she can’t drive so they must quickly teach her, leading to more nonsensical developments. Directed by Maegan Houang, the film is a meta free-for-all with incredible comic timing and chemistry between Honig, Jouhari, and Stonoha, and featuring a hyperactive string of quotable lines (Rest in peace, babe). The second season of their series “Three Busy Debras” just premiered on Adult Swim and is also viewable on HBO GO. -KA. Director: Maegan Houang.
