Mike Upchurch has elevated slacking to an art form.

The Emmy Award-winning writer is the creator of "Powerloafing," an online comedy about a world-class slacker, Cubicle Carl, whose adroit avoidance of work makes him a role model for aspiring office slugs.

"That's part of the definition of powerloafing," Upchurch said. "You're not just goofing off, you're getting away with it and you're convincing all the right people that you're a top worker."

Upchurch creates what he calls the world's smallest sitcom on what may be the world's smallest set -- his Los Feliz district apartment.

Everywhere are props for his comedic endeavor: Carl's cubicle, folded and stored on the porch; a singing fish modified to deliver dialogue via remote control; a mummified corpse in a shirt and tie. (more)

Coming Soon to a Computer Near You

It's criminal how long it's been since we've posted. But, we've been busy working on new episodes, we swear, and submit photographic evidence here and here. One of the guest stars for our upcoming episode, "Dept of Doom," is the spitting image of a well known celebrity. Unfortunately, we're not sure who he is, because the guy just showed up in the back seat of our car and then forced us to do an episode.
