Watch “Every Interview Is a Winding Road” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 183: “Coming Clean”

January 22, 2013

Lance Armstrong. Manti Te’o. What a great week this past week was for comedy about the news. We had Mike McLendon in our cast that week to play Lance and Tammie Smalls to play Oprah so at the readthrough we brainstormed ideas on how to hit the interview. I riffed, “Sheryl Crow doesn’t really exist”…and here’s the result!

Watch “Cut4Whoever” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 182: “I’d Like to Give That Whore a Rusty Trombone!”

Whattya know? After two months I finally get a sketch in Top Story! Weekly again!

Our writing staff is so good that I hadn’t been able to get a sketch in since November. But when Brian O’Connell guest directed I knew I could try to go a little dark. And when the story (which turned out to be a fake) about Justin Bieber fans cutting themselves to try to get him to stop smoking pot, I knew I had just the right angle!

CUT4WHOEVER by Michael Hughes

Starring Tommy Bechtold (Sean), Kipleigh Brown (Mom), Phillip Wilburn (Dad) and Mitchel Baldwin (Jack)
