Ex-Military, former general, unknown reason for resign, Captain Alister O'Bryan is the GM of Leftovers Restaurant and runs it with an iron fist. He takes his position seriously to a comedic level but don't ever laugh at him. Nothing scares, intimidates, or catches him by surprise besides Hazel the head chef, who is the focus of his nightmares. He also has a crush on her driven by his fear... but no one knows this. And don't tell anyone. Because he will show you the dictionary definition of pain if you do. He prefers to be called General O'Bryan, but Steve will call him everything but.
Fired from every other restaurant she's worked at for her hot temper, Hazel is a world class chef... but unfortunately not very classy. She's been scorned by a series of misfortunes in her life and she won't hold back from telling you her terrible life story and how she rose above adversity and blah, blah, blah. She makes great food but won't refrain from making you cry if you don't meet her standard. She has been the reason for many line cooks quitting from Leftovers Restaurant but intimidates the managers too much for them to fire her.
long time waiter at Leftovers, Steve doesn't take his job very seriously. In fact, he doesn't take anything seriously. It brings him a lot of trouble but then again, Steve loves getting himself in trouble... it makes for an entertaining day. When it comes to stirring the pot he's so good he should be working in the kitchen, but it doesn't pay as well as being a server, not that he's making much tips anyways.
Relatable to anyone in the service industry the humour of Tips is all driven from the mishaps of characters in a restaurant. From rude guests to rude co-workers, if you've worked in the service industry the jokes of our web series are directed towards you, as we have all been there as well.
Inspired and influenced by such films as "Super Troopers" "Clerks" and especially "Waiting" if the humour of these films is your pint of beer then come take a drink of us.
Tips will be taking the paradigm of "The Office" or "Parks and Recreation" only instead of the characters talking to a fictional camera crew we'll be having the characters talk to the audience in the style of "House of Cards"... only comedic! Think the style of humourous fourth wall breaking comparable to "Wolf of Wallstreet" only with the dynamics of "The Office" with the setting and similar characters of "Waiting".... yeah... yeah think of all that stuff... you like that stuff right? Great. You'll love Tips.
