Mort the Landlord is a lazy slob who drops mail in the street and steps on it. His big daily project is to catch the rats that infest his house - but he eats the cheese out of the traps before the rats can even get to it.
Funnyman Michael Q. Schmidt plays Mort the Landlord in this quirky short. Mort is a slob of a sloppy landlord... one who drops his tenant's mail in the street and sweeps over it. He grabs a step ladder with every intention of painting, but succumbs to eating clumps of cheese out of his pocket that weren't eaten by rats in his many traps. Mort's favorite diversion is sniffing the vanilla soaps in his female tenants' bathroom. 'The Misadventures of Mort the Landlord' was filmed in conjunction with Naked Shadows: The Director's Cut (2012), for which Schmidt created the role of Mort. This offbeat comedian, lying somewhere between hysterical and totally crass, embodies every tenant's worst vision of a nightmare landlord.Written by
