The three members of Cheap Wine stand in a row outside leaning against a balcony. Each person is wearing a solid-coloured, collared shirt and looking directly into the camera with blank expressions. In the middle of the image is a logo that reads “Cheap Wine”, with a hand-drawn illustration of a spilled wine glass that is pouring out a rainbow stream.
Our work is like cheap wine — it’s fun and loose and probably bad for your brain. We almost exclusively write stories about jealous, insecure characters but we didn’t set out to do that. Maybe it’s just who we are. Jealous, insecure, cheap wine-drinking lowlifes who make off-the-wall videos and some normal stuff too. Just make sure you drink a lot of cheap ass wine before you see any of our stuff so you like it more.
See Adult Siblings, Martha & Beatrice, When?, and Appies by Cheap Wine as part of the TOSketchFest21 Opening Night Gala on Wednesday, March 24 at 7pm ET.
Sensory Warning: The sketch “When?” has a fast moving visual effect that is accompanied by a startling sound.
Cheap Wine is Jack Creaghan, Charlotte Creaghan and Jessika McQueen. They are family. Seriously, they are in-laws. As in they spend holidays together and two of them have the same parents and two of them have a prenup. Check out their short films and try to figure out who is what to who, how much is based on real-life events, and if spending this much time together is healthy.
After forming one year ago to compete in Sketch to the Death 2020, Cheap Wine won the Newcomer of the Year award and decided to make things official. Since then, they have had digital sketches featured in multiple festivals. They were finalists at this year’s Battle of the Sketches, and also had multiple films screened in the Great Canadian Sketch Comedy Film Festival, the Sudden Impulse Film Festival, and the Virtual Insanity Comedy Show. They were official selections for the Isolation Short Film Festival screening and were awarded an honourable mention from the jury. They were also finalists in this year’s 48 Hour Film Challenge.
