Esther Ku Cast In "The Fiddling Horse"

A post shared by CJ Wallis (@fortyfps) on

Esther Ku is set to make her cinematic debut in the upcoming film, The Fiddling Horse, a dark comedy and latest feature from award-winning filmmaker, CJ Wallis.

The Fiddling Horse follows a woman named Leslie Heart who inherits a racehorse, and in an attempt to elevate her failing status within her high society circle, teams up with an ex-celebrity jockey to secretly execute a long-con to cash in on the monetary and social winnings at the racetrack.

Ku is a stand-up comedian best-known from NBC's Last Comic Standing, MTV's Girl Code, Adult Swim's Jack & Triumph Show and MTV2's Wild'n Out.

Ku is represented by Barry Katz Entertainment.

 The Fiddling Horse is produced by FortyFPS Productions and MK Ultra Productions, and is expected to begin filming this summer in Louisiana.

'Battle Royale With Cheese' Reviews Perfect Bid

"Perfect Bid is a compelling and addictive watch."


Documentarian CJ Wallis’ Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much is a short, sharp, and focused examination of one man: ‘The Price is Right’ super-fan Ted Slauson.

by Orla Smith, January 1st

To no purpose other than personal fulfilment, he dedicated his life to memorising the show’s prices until he could ace each question, often guessing exactly to the penny. He has attended live shows for decades, participating once, and later helping another contestant pull off a perfect bid.
Listening to Slauson speak about his experiences, observing his expressions, and picking up on his speech patterns offers enough potential for psychological analysis to sustain 70 minutes.

Screen-Space Reviews Perfect Bid Documentary


"Perfect Bid: The Contestant That Knew Too Much will speak with a very clear and relatable voice to those who seek it out"


PERFECT BID: THE CONTESTANT WHO KNEW TOO MUCH

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2017 AT 10:36AM

Featuring: Theodore Slauson, Bob Barker, Roger Dobkowitz, Drew Carey and Kevin Pollak.
Director: C.J. Wallis

Rating: 4/5

The curious case of Theodore Slauson and the role he played in one of the most remarkable moments of television history is examined with an acutely insightful eye and jaunty rhythm in director C.J. Wallis’ hugely enjoyable doc, Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much. The 52 year-old survivor of game show infamy proves to be droll and delightful frontman for his own story, which Wallis recounts utilising first-person recollections, archive footage and some stylishly employed bridging animation.
