Anthony Weiner and Other Congressmen Complain that Their Twitter Accounts Have Been Hacked with Penis Pictures – From Top Story! Weekly Episode 105: “Weiner’s Schnitzel”!

June 10, 2011

On Sunday, June 5 Top Story! Weekly does my sketch about how Congressman Anthony Weiner tries to explain how pictures of a penis ended up on his Twitter account. On Monday, June 6, the real Anthony Weiner admits that the pictures were in fact of him. Coincidence? You be the judge!

Watch “Moneygall for Nothing” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 104: “Rehab Has Them Now”

June 1, 2011

So after I wrote this sketch, I realized it had the same basic construct as the “Schwarzenegger meets his illegitimate son” sketch I wrote last week: a politician’s mannerisms, speaking patterns and tropes are mirrored unexpectedly by someone related to him. But the sketch came out well, and the audience dug it, and I don’t think most of them were at last week’s show anyway. Plus, I wrote a sketch about Ireland that wasn’t about drinking and potatoes and sexual frustration.
