Chris Coxen’s Space Clone Audition
Accomplished character-based comedy show
This article is from 2011.
Framing his sketch show as a competition in which the audience decides which of Coxen’s four characters will be cloned to populate outer space seems unnecessary. This US comic’s creations - sleazy lounge lizard, deluded motivational speaker, shy weather marketer, aggressive kung fu dancer - put one in mind of Will Ferrell’s assumed personae and are certainly good enough to stand alone.
