How They Cook in Williamsburg: 'Food Party' Coming to IFC

Wonderfully weird FOOD PARTY, created and hosted by Williamsburg fringe artist Thu Tran and her cast of bizarre puppets, is coming to IFC (Independent Film Channel) June 9 at 11:15 p.m. This six-part IFC Original Comedy’s series appear in 10-minute episodes.

Food Party has been described as a "psychedelic melding of Pee Wee’s Playhouse and The Rachael Ray Show with a dash of J-Horror vibe." It's shot in Williamsburg in a technicolor handmade, cardboard kitchen. Characters include Italian Chef, Ice Cream Cone, the amorous Monsieur Baguette, Thu Tran clones, Especially Psychic Spud (E.P.S.), Perv Corn and The Devil.

The webseries won the ‘Outside of the Box” prize at the 2008 NY Television Festival. The NY Times ran this article about Trans Friday.
