Over the past year I’ve shared a plethora of indie web shows and films, and because of that, my inbox is going a little HAM with all of the request to “pretty please share my show!” While I certainly can’t share everyone’s work (although I try), I do think it’s important to give up-and-coming filmmakers and writers a chance to shine.

Today’s web show share comes from comedian Joel James. Earlier this month James released his web show, Single Until Proven Guilty, in which he plays Eric, an author who is gun shy about love. Unlike most shows dealing with relationships, Eric isn’t doling out advice, but rather the recipient of other people’s words on love. His assistant feels bad about his single status and wants to set him up, but will it do more harm than good?

Watch and see.

Watch the first 3 episodes of ‘Single Until Proven Guilty’ and check out Joel Jame’s YouTube channel for more clips from the show.

  • OSHH

    not my cup of joe either.

  • Reason

    There’s no way in hell he’s a writer with that grammar…

  • Biba

    Thank you! I was just thinking the exact same thing. Really? “A little bit more better”, and “I know your rich” (instead of “you’re”). Atrocious!

    Man, that was dreadful. Good on young Black folks doing their thing. Just as long as it’s a GOOD thing. “I shoulda done been had an assistant” isn’t the business.

    Couldn’t finish watching it. Boring.

    There were some funny lines… “an adult entertainment store where we provide many services for adults.” I love when people say a lot without saying much.
    I didn’t even know yellow pages existed anymore. The communication was not natural enough for me.

    I can’t with that theme song…

  • Ozzie

    Couldn’t get past the first 2 mins and the theme tune was awful too

  • Netta

    The Good: Episode 1! I actually lol a couple of times! Eric is cute…bad grammar and all.

    The Bad: “Wackatema” is a card but that girl is WIDE! Good gracious alive!

    The Ugly: That damn theme song! and Ashley’s acting! She’s gorgeous but come on! Episode 3 is a hot, halting mess! Why does Gary look like a bad porn actor?!

    He also said, “Is this the only job you’ve worked?” which is poor grammar.

  • offhandcomments

    this man’s character is author…and he had a line that says “she made everything a little bit more easier”…I can’t.

  • CB

    He’s laughs at his own jokes too much as well.

    Everyone can’t be Issa Rae, I suppose.

    Well, I appreciate you sampling my tea. :) maybe you’ll like the next cup.

  • http://JoelJames.net Joel James

    I agree and I’m the one that said it! sadly I didn’t realize until the screening. I’ll do better next time. I appreciate you giving us a try.

    i think issa rae spoiled me

    This should revolve around Wackatema. Her character is funny. But other than that, this should be renamed: “Cold Until Proven A Hot Mess.”

  • SouthernComfortNKorea

    My thoughts:
    ~the idea of the book was good,
    ~the plot, interesting,
    ~the humor, a little dry, but I liked…especially Wakatema, that child is hillarious
    ~Eric is cute, and refreshing to see
    ~Grammar, could be better

    Overall, nice try. It’s a hard business I’m sure. Thanks for the efforts Mr. James!
