The first self-produced series of Invention has gotten hundreds of thousands of views, its own fan following worldwide including a fan Myspace page dedicated to the show and Twitter page with articles on NewTeeVee.com and Tubefilter.Tv about the show


THE CHARACTERS:

Host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) must each week welcome back eccentric inventor and author, Sir Reginald Bo-Hey No (Tom Konkle) who is always his guest and they riff in a short, funny sketch in the chat show format. It is a funny “Art Bell,” show like AM Coast to Coast a late night science/conspiracy show.

The series has even been singled out by a serious UK television show as the comic relief on the show’s own webpage.


Season 1:

After a several episodes of very strange and funny interviews with Sir Reginald about his worthless inventions, Brian becomes increasingly hostile after being accommodating as he realizes he is physically trapped in this talk show with Reginald, literally walking from one side of the frame only to reappear on the other side of the frame again. They must eventually use their own ingenuity to escape, while continuing to do a chat show. What will happen when they get out into the “real” world again? Will they miss each other? Or has Brian simply been driven mad by the eccentric scientist and it’s all in his head….

Reviews of Dave and Tom:
BACKSTAGE WEST
- Polly Warfield

These two are worthy successors to the comedy mantles of the greats, Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Wittily penned and performed by David Beeler and Tom Konkle, crisply directed by Michael Neill, this night-blooming nosegay of skits and sketches pays proper homage to the kookily cerebral art of (late) Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Beeler, who could well be cast as an eager young prelate just out of the seminary, is here cast as Moore. Konkle, with the mien of a solid citizen—businessman or loony--could be Cook. They are well paired and well contrasted, and what we have here, as we had there, is la creme de la creme of comedy.

LA WEEKLY – Paul Birchall
…writer-performers David Beeler and Tom Konkle capture the geniality and goofiness of the late, great masters of the "twitty old bean" style of English comedy. For, in this collection of gleeful and quick-witted skits, Beeler and Konkle pay homage to the buddy comedy of their predecessors….

But willing suspension of disbelief isn’t too hard to do here, because these fictitious Brits run through sketch after sketch without losing any steam where anything is possible and everything is gut-bustingly funny…
Beeler and Konkle’s chemistry make “Invention” a treat to watch.
They build off each other’s wild gestures, energy and antics as if they’ve known each other all their lives, even though they met in 1999.

The wide range of sketches require Beeler and Konkle to play characters who are polar opposites of each man’s previous part, yet the duo pull it off with ease.


Summary:

The internet series “Invention with Brian Forbes” is short, fast, funny and cheap to produce series with recurring characters and a great potential for endless, funny flights of fancy that work on all the new media platforms. Written, performed and produced by Tom Konkle and David Beeler this is a “turn key” production that’s ready to go.

Invention production details for series cast for sponsors distribution and investors
Pith-e Productions seeks financing for the continuation of the “Invention with Brian Forbes” comedy series on the Internet. Invention is a short, smart, funny, two person show in the classic mold of the comedy team, where each episode launches from a unique invention, book or discovery from a loony British professor, Sir Reginald Bo-hey No (Tom Konkle) who is interviewed by increasingly frustrated chat show host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) and spirals on humorous flights of fancy showcasing the comic chemistry of the two performers. Dave and Tom have been writing and doing these characters together onstage in critical hit shows for years, including Good Night, Double Act, and Dave and Tom’s: A Tribute to Dave and Tom and on the Internet in episodes of “Invention with Brian Forbes.”
