When we were kids, the teachers’ lounge at school was a place of mystery. It was like the hideout where all the super villains gathered together. Comedian Ted Alexandro wants to the cast the teacher’s lounge in a funny new light.
Alexandro and his comedy partner, Hollis James have been producing a comedy web series called the Teachers Lounge. It’s about two friends, a music teacher (Alexandro) and a janitor (James), who are always hanging out in the teachers’ lounge of the NYC elementary school where they work. The only difference is that this teachers’ lounge has celebrity guests including, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Black, Janeane Garofalo, Judy Gold, Judah Friedlander, Jim Norton, Dave Attell, Rachel Feinstein, Michael Che, Todd Barry and musician Ted Leo.
Now Ted Alexandro and Hollis James want to take Teachers Lounge to the next level. “We’re raising funds for this project on Kickstarter because we wanted to shoot this show professionally- the way it deserves to be shot, and that takes money”.
