BUFF Shorts: Butter My Noodle
Director: Various Run Time: 110 min.
Comedy Shorts Program
If you don’t mind me asking, what kind of laugher are you? Are you the kind who laughs heartily at a well-crafted joke? The kind who snickers inappropriately at a solemn event? Do you guffaw appreciatively at clever wordplay? Or maybe you’re the kind who chortles in the face of despair because: Screw you despair, you’re not the boss of me!
If you answered “Yes!” or “All of the above!” or “No one says guffaw anymore!” then the BUFF 2023 Comedy Shorts block was made for you!
This year’s filmmakers are poised and ready to kick your funny bone in a dizzying array of places. From the moon to a gas station. From a New York subway to a shack by the lake. From a chipped tooth to a cracked claw. From a water-depleted future to a beloved sex doll. From an angry houseplant, to the woods, and on through the open prairie. Come sing your laughter into the abyss and show that abyss who’s in charge!
