KIDNEY THIEVES POSTCARD ART Maybe this has happened to you...

You wake up in a hotel room in Mexico, in a bathtub full of ice. A dull ache in your head gives way to a dim recollection of the night before. You discover a row of immaculate stitches where one of your kidneys used to be. But somehow this all feels eerily familiar.

You are the victim of Kidney Thieves, the award winning black comedy from director Toby Wilkins.

"...the best comedic acting I've seen in a while."

We do hope you see this short film, if only so you get to see the amazing Ethan Embry in a bathtub of ice. Perhaps best Known for his work in feature films Can’t Hardly Wait, That Thing You Do, White Squall, Sweet Home Alabama, They, and Empire Records, he also starred in the Fox TV show Freaky Links, and ABC’s L.A. Dragnet.

Embry can often be seen in guest star appearances on shows such as The Twilight Zone, Numbers, and Law & Order and co-stars in Showtime's Brotherhood.

A hugely talented lady known for her masterful work on the hilarious Fox series Andy Richter Controls The Universe, and on Friends as Joey's quirky girlfriend Kathy, recently starring on Showtime's Huff and now on CBS's Criminal Minds.

Among Brewster's feature film credits are The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Desperate But Not Serious, Let's Talk About Sex, and My Big Fat Independent Movie. The world needs more Paget Brewster and she is awesome in this short.

The first thing you should know about Paul is that he is very funny. You can find out how funny he is if you see this short, or his work on TV's Mr. Show, Tenacious D, Driven To Drink, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Real Time with Bill Maher, and VH1's Best Week Ever.

Or if you don't own a television, drop by Hollywood's M-Bar where you can often catch Paul's and many more fine performances in The Thrilling Adventure & Supernatural Suspence Hour, a live show in the style of old time radio.
