Michael Kasdan reviews the ingenious and hilarious YouTube sensation ‘Convos With My 2 Year Old’
Convos With My 2 Year Old has been a YouTube sensation for some time. This sweet funny video series reenacts the actual conversations of Dad, Matthew Clarke, with his two-year old daughter, Coco Frances. The twist that makes this so great is that Coco Frances is played by another full-grown man. In this role, the Five O’Clock shadow-adorned David Milchard brings brilliant comic timing.
Not only does hilarity ensue, but its a perfect illustration of the ridiculous awesomeness of living with a two-year old.
“The Slide,” in which Matthew helps Coco conquer her fear of going down the slide, is a terrific episode to get a flavor for the series, but every episode is worth seeing.
The episode entitled “Come On, Let’s Play,” is another wonderful one. It includes the following exchange, after which dad just puts the work away and plays with his girl:
Coco: I want you to play with me.
Dad: We will. Just relax.
Coco: No. You relax. Because its just life. And there are lots of toys.
The entire series may be found on YouTube here.
