| The Practical Jokers
Leon Errol wants to join the Ribbers Club, a bunch of practical jokers. There's an initiation, so they start by stealing his car, then take over the office of his insurance company to torment him further.

It's written and directed by Al Boasberg. Like the other Leon Errol short of his that I've seen, it's clearly run as a skit, with Leon undergoing a comedy of frustration, as insurance agents refusing to understand what sort of car he owns, cops arresting him and Jack Norton, in his drunken persona, testing Leon for drunkenness. The dialogue is fast, the performances snappy and anyone who has ever had to try to put in an insurance claim will attest to the fact that when you're trying to collect on a policy, you wind up owing them money!
