Watch “Game Changer” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 170: “Round One: Mitt”!

October 9, 2012

Watching Obama’s performance in last Wednesday’s debate wasn’t easy for me. But I still had to get comedy out of it. And thinking about how the same Republicans who were abandoning Romney the day before suddenly rallied around him, I thought about what might happened if those closest to Romney let slip how they had felt about his chances.

Watch “Double Bill” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 169: “The Call Heard Round the World”!

October 2, 2012

This was one of my favorite sketches I’ve written in a long time, and people said some nice things afterwards. And it was a great example of how actors can and should generate their own material; Brian O’Connell suggested playing Clinton, Phillip Wilburn pitched the two Clintons, and the rest of the sketch fell together.
