“Dry Hump the Vote” Featured on G4’s “Attack of the Show”

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Start watching at 3:18. Or after Cosby.

These guys are fast. We uploaded the video to Funny or Die at around noon yesterday. And the show must have aired last night.

(Edited to add: looks like the video no longer exist. It was probably taken down by the Cos. But it aired, I promise.)

Click here for a breakdown from the episode of Attack of the Show.

Oh yeah, also the video is somehow on the front page of digg. So please keep digging away at it.

Videos Galore

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

It seems like all I do is make videos these days. That’s because, along with children, I believe that videos are the future. Today a couple of my vids are making some head way on that their internet. The first one is a Mac/PC parody with a McCain voter and an Obama voter. It was written and directed by Kevin Doyle and also stars Jim Santangeli. We actually filmed a whole series of these. One of them is embedded below or click on the link here to see all of them. Stay tuned for more of these to come.

Next up, Evil Twin Standoff, has been featured on the front page of the Comedy section on YouTube. Like I said before, I’m the good twin. My evil twin is the bad one. Seriously, ask me anything.

And finally, an oldie but goodie I did with Adira Amram and Matt McCarthy was featured by a new video show called PopTube. Scroll to the 1:12 mark and let the psychedness commence.

High School Talent Show Sat. Night at UCB

Friday, October 10th, 2008

This Saturday I will be performing at the High School Talent Show at the UCB Theatre at 7:30. This is actually the one year anniversary of the show – so it will be a Best of Showcase. It’s been a fun run so far spearheaded by the brother-sister combo of Eliot and Ilana Glazer.  The characters I’ve played during the run include: a ventriloquist where the dummy’s voice is pre-recorded, a guy on stilts (I ended up in the ER after one of these shows), an angry 9th grade girls basketball coach, and a backup singer in a Wang Chung cover band. Also one of my favorite bits that is done every show in between acts is the stage crew. I won’t give any more away. Just come check out the show if you happen to be in the Tri-State area.

Worst Sarah Palin Impression Ever

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

Yesterday, I did my patented Sarah Palin impression and put it out on the internet. Unfortunately, it was immediately voted the Worst Sarah Palin Impression Ever. Decide for yourself. I think it’s pretty good myself.

Directed by one Will Hines. We shot this last night and Will edited it in just a few hours. I think we pretty much nailed it.

Updated: This video has been mentioned on Buzzfeed, BestWeekEver.tv, and The Huffington Post.

Also please digg it if you can.

Evil Twin Standoff

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Here’s a new UCBComedy Original I was in called Evil Twin Standoff.

It also stars Andree Vermeulen and Brian Barrett. Guy Patton wrote the script, Brandon Bassham directed it, and Pete Schultz shot & edited it.

I’m the good twin. I promise. Just ask me anything.
