Entertainment Spotlight:Hot Chocolate Party

How did Hot Chocolate Party get started?

HCP is a group of comedians who met during their time at UCLA, collaborating in various on-campus comedy troupes. After graduating, the guys, looking for a way to continue working together, began writing both sketch and musical comedy for YouTube. As of this year, the group’s work has been featured on CollegeHumor, Billboard, RightThisMinute and more.

What do you want visitors and locals to know about HCP that they may not already know?

Our 2 albums are available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, pretty much any digital retailer or streaming service. ALSO, you can see group member Karel Ebergen in the recent, nationally broadcast Little Caesars Stuffed Crust commercial!

Who has been an inspiration for your work?

We grew up with the Lonely Island’s music and sketches on SNL, who have certainly been a big inspiration for us. We also are big fans of Derrick Comedy and Childish Gambino, who started his musical career in comedy. It’s also been inspiring to see Lil’ Dicky’s recent success, walking the line between comedy and great, catchy music perfectly.

What’s the craziest thing to happen during a shoot?

We shot a sketch in the desert last year, and despite remembering all the props, costumes, and catering, we forgot to bring sunscreen…leaving one of our members with a bit of a souvenir…

Additionally, our most recent music video was a choreographed one-take video, complete with costume changes and confetti, that took 27 takes to get right. Arguably our craziest video to date!

What’s next for Hot Chocolate Party?

We’re in the middle of working on our 3rd full-length album, which should be due out before the end of the year!
