Friday. Time for some more character duos again. I wonder if I'm going to end up seeing an actual pair of comedians one of these days; it hasn't happened yet, but I'm not ruling it out!

- Herskovic & Ohms: A pair of inventors who build made-to-order robots, work out of a surprisingly dingy basement laboratory, and you get the sense they might have ties to the Russian mafia. You may or may not be right; just don't ask 'em about it, and it'll be all good.

- Matto & Nessner: One is a girl with curly hair who works at a radio station, and the other is her boyfriend who thinks he's the only blond white guy with a beard to have ever picked up a guitar and done a cover of a rap song. It won't last. Now's your chance.

- Swanick & Frasso: Lawyers who are always utterly impeccably dressed, and whose office is an unadorned twenty-foot glass cube in the center of the city.

- Silsby & Wenrick: A British rabbit and badger who were transformed into humans about ten years ago, and have quietly adjusted to life in their new shape living together in a cottage on a meadow somewhere.
