About This Show

Roy Battocchio’s Thicker Than Water follows Dominick and Albert Corelli, two brothers who own and operate a construction business. Gertrude, Albert’s wife, decides that Dominick, who runs the business, does not have a good business sense so she wants to take over the business and have Dominick work for her. Carmine and Marie, two of Dominick’s three children, also work in the business. Nobody likes Gertrude, a witch on wheels, and they certainly don’t want her running the business. Unbeknownst to the others, Marie and Carmine have a plan to kill her. Dominick and Albert have a plan to kidnap her until she agrees to stay out of the business and Rose and her 98-year old mother also have a plan to kill her. Astonishingly, all three plans are executed in rapid succession with hilarious results.
