Movies have been around for a long time, like we ‘re talking over 100 years here, and in that time a fair number of clich ‘ characters have emerged and frankly, have been used to death. We ‘re all aware that these stock characters exist, like the Extremely Brooklyn Police Chief or the Super Immature Rom-Com Male Best Friend, but one man decided to take things a step further and point out just how predictable cookie cutter these characters are.
In a brilliant Twitter thread, stand-up comedian Chris Calogero compiled a series of hilarious and short videos where he portrays various side characters in all their clich ‘ glory.
