Get a Life

"Get a life" features the surreal and happily delusional character of Chris Peterson. As a 30-year old "professional paperboy", he lives with his perennially pajama-clad parents and involving himself in various bizarre exploits while continually ignoring life's realities.

Chris Elliot is the master of the creepy (in a weird neighbor or strange family member sort of way), awkward and uncomfortable comedy. He could be considered to be the predecessor to comedians like Will Ferrell and Kevin Smith. The humor is uncomfortable and in the finest Chris Elliot vein everyone hates him and he is totally oblivious to it.
