On one level, “Comic Potential” is a satire of the TV industry.  It is set slightly in the future, when everything has changed except human nature. Actors in a popular soap opera have been replaced by “Actoids”— android performers.  During the taping of the show, one of the “Actoids” begins to show signs of creativity. Is it a fault in her programming or is she humanizing? A young writer begins to teach her comic timing and physical comedy. Can their budding relationship blossom into real love or is it doomed to melt down? On a deeper level, “Comic Potential” explores what makes us human and the nature of love. “Comic Potential” contains adult language and situations and is most suitable for those 17 and older.
