Testicular cancer isn’t normally something to laugh about, but comedian Byron Lane has set out to change that with a web series based on his own experience of getting the disease. And he’s certainly got a great cast to help him, including Drew Droege, Sam Pancake, Peter Porte, Jonathan Van Ness, and Beth Grant.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘LAST WILL & TESTICLE is a comedy webseries about a man who has a testicle removed because of cancer. It was written, produced, directed, and edited by Byron Lane after he found a lump on his testicle in August 2015. He had surgery two weeks later, wrote a webseries about it, and launched a Kickstarter to raise the funds. He met his fundraising goal in 3 days and doubled it by the end of the campaign.’
In the series the main character has to not just deal with his own feeling about finding a lump and then having a testicle removed, but also other people’s reactions – including his boyfriend, who in episode 2 isn’t exactly the paragon of supportiveness.
You can take a look at all six episodes of Season 1 of Last Will & Testicle below, and if you enjoy it, you’ll be happy to hear that Byron Lane is planning to show Season 2 very soon.
