Poster for the sketch “the boyfriend hotline”. It is a posed photograph depicting the character, Sean, listening to Eric speak to him in a sexy manner, via the telephone. Sean is laying on his stomach in a bed, looking at the camera with his hand over his mouth. The text reads “UnCuLtURE”
UnCuLtURE “The Boyfriend Hotline” by Declan Quinlan
UnCuLtURE is a sketch series satirizing modern millennial counter culture. “The Boyfriend Hotline” illustrates the irony of being attracted to toxic men. Chivalry is just not fashionable anymore. What IS in style, however, are 2am texts saying “u Up?” and whispered passive aggressive fights in IKEA. Ugh, even just thinking about it makes me wish I had a boyfriend. Boyfriend Hotlines finds Sean contacting a sex hotline, only to be confronted by an all-to-real depiction of a modern, sexy relationship.

I am the writer and director of “The Boyfriend Hotline”. The UnCuLtURE sketch series is my little comedy baby from quarantine, and was really just inspired by the every day idiocracies of millennial New Yorkers that I have either encountered, or simply become myself! I have a masters in directing at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and have had work screened at the LGBT Toronto Film Festival, The Student Film Awards, The Granada Film Festival, among others.
