Storyline

Hotbox is a show about a glowing hot metal box from outer space that crashes to earth and is retrieved by a group of scientists. As the scientists examine the box in their top secret facilities, viewers are zoomed in to the different weird symbols that line the outside of the strange alien artifact. What's going on inside the box is the real show! A wonderfully absurd world of sketches, cartoons, commercial parodies, puppets, fake movie trailers like: Dinner in Space, commercials starring Robocop, Flaunty Flour Festival, Festival of Whips, Salty's Gym, Cthulu and Jim, and a lawyer named Hot Garbage.

I Watched it live with the Cast
6 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was at a bar on Bloor west where they watch all the shows when they air on TV and cast members are there. It was hosted by the chubby guy from the show and another guy who was supposed to be in the show (I didn't see him in the show so he may be in other episodes) and there was also another cast member there who I think performed stand up comedy after we left. There were 12 people there including the hosts themselves and we watched the show as it aired on TV. As we watched the show we felt obligated by politeness to laugh every time the hosts laughed at their own jokes on TV. After the show most people left leaving only 5 people behind to watch a free stand up comedy show after the TV broadcast, as we got ready to leave we watched the beginning of this show and it was even worse than the TV show. It was really different the great idea to watch a show with the cast there live but it was just sad because the show was so bad and they loved their own show so much, in person they seem nice and were funny but then the show was so bad and the stand up comedy after the show was just brutal, but as I said we left shortly after it started so maybe it got better.
