Brooklyn filmmakers use humor to poke fun at everyday life

BAY RIDGE -

Two Brooklyn filmmakers are using humor in their web series to poke fun at everyday life in Brooklyn.

Filmakers Brian Bonz and Mike Rizzo created the web series 'Bobo Touch Helpline' and shot all the scenes in Brooklyn.

There are episodes about texting and walking, and spoofing on so-called Williamsburg hipsters. They also poke fun at gentrification.

Bonz and Rizzo have known each other for a long time. They say Brooklyn lends itself to a lot of humor.

Their next project is a documentary called "Welcome to the Sewer." The documentary is based on a true story of a real-life Ninja Turtle superfan from Brooklyn.
