Comedy Artists Bruce Cropley And Alan Morris Release New Satirical Single “The Twelve Calls To PhoneCorp”

Comedy artists Bruce Cropley and Alan Morris have released their new satire “The Twelve Calls to PhoneCorp.” The single is an audio comedy play in the tradition of the best radio shows and is structured around the popular Christmas traditional, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” It has a running time of approximately eight and a half hilarious minutes, all of which are entirely utilized, packed with more gags and one-liners than one might think possible in such a short span of time. This is the second collaboration between Cropley and Morris, who are from Australia and the Netherlands, respectively, and both of whom are accomplished musicians in addition to their other talents.

The satirical play tells a story to which anyone with a telephone can relate: the attempt to conduct simple, straightforward business through an automated telephone system that seems to serve no other purpose than to divert the communications of a company's clientele. The pathetic protagonist, wonderfully (and ridiculously) played by Alan Morris, wants merely to pay his phone bill. Naturally, this basic desire is parried by PhoneCorp's digital operator, whose lines are narrated by the infuriatingly soft-toned female voice of Macintosh OSX's “Vicki.” Insanity ensues, becoming exponentially more bizarre and surreal with each of the twelve calls.

It would not do to represent here much of the well-penned and well-performed humor, but it may be related without ruining any of the listener's fun that the first call to PhoneCorp results in the all-too-believable: “The system is currently down,” which is later followed by, “We are upgrading, please call again.”

By the sixth ring, there is apparently fish bait involved, as well as the brainwashing of children. High points include (but are in no way limited to) phone sex with camels, “suicide support,” and of course, the frustrations of humanity's worst invention since global thermonuclear war, digital voice recognition.

The fantastic piece of audio satire is available everywhere online beginning December 29 of 2012.
