Morty Against Humanity was written by Erik Champney especially for Mike Newman, overseer of the Non-Permanent Parliament, responsible for a series of smart, abstract, farcical short films, which can be viewed here.
Inspired by the unforgettable senility and full-throttle lunacy of reoccurring character, Morty, Champney concocted a screenplay that put the belligerently pushy, yet surprisingly intellectual, old man at the center of a mysterious game of Cards Against Humanity, tucked away within the bowels of an Atlanta mansion.
Shazay, Morty’s edgy, flamboyant nephew makes a welcome appearance, along with two new bizarre characters, invented by Champney to stir Newman’s pot. The advantage of the end result is Newman played all the characters, which was a joy for Champney. Newman is his favorite actor.
