Radio Noir

Okay, so I think noir is super ridiculous. It’s downright comedic! All this running around, I love you/I hate you, murder plots, backstabbing, etc.  So, we should have a comedic radio show in the same tone as CLUE. If someone hasn’t seen Clue, I recommend it 10/10 A+ movie. It’s on Netflix. Go watch it. I’ll wait.


 

Okay, now that all of that is over with, imagine what you could do with a comedy noir sketch. You would have to set it up straight, then quietly subvert everything. Or, the case could be totally ridiculous. The “femme fatale’ is a little girl who lost her stuffed animal, and she wants the private eye to get it back. The spooky gangsters are just trying to make ends meet until they can get a culinary degree. The PI is useless and everyone knows it

PI: According to my calculations, the killer is in this very room!

A: This is an enclosed boxcar, of course they’re in this room-

PI: Shh, shh shh. Let my genius sink in.
