Conference Call

5.0/5

Critic Rating

Starring Elizabeth Henstridge, Jeff Ward, Gregory Stees and Emma Roberts, Conference Call follows Julie Burke as she partners with eccentric entrepreneurs "The Toade Bros.” Julie patiently helps the Toades desperately pitch their half-baked ideas to a string of bewildered investors. Poring over hours of cringeworthy recorded phone calls from this oddball tech company, our (fake) investigative podcaster, Charlotte Dunn, delivers a story of incompetence, fraud, and betrayal. After the Toades manage to do the unthinkable, Julie is left with no choice but to take action.

"I’m getting a bit tired of hearing about certain billionaires who like to destroy social media sites and this fictional parody is the perfect remedy. It takes that classic clueless, ego-driven persona we see with some extravagant billionaires and applies it to the Toade bros."
