Watch “A Big Hunk of Hamm” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 192: “Ten Years After”!

March 27, 2013

Okay, so a sketch about how Jon Hamm’s penis is so big that “Mad Men” producers have asked him to wear underwear may not be the most sophisticated thing I’ve ever written. But this sketch (from the First Annual Los Angeles Scripted Comedy Festival, which featured our special guest Lucas Grabeel from “Switched at Birth” and “High School Musical” – check out some more hilarious sketches from the show on YouTube) seemed to get some good laughs from the audience. Very happy people picked up the allusion in the Jon Hamm/Don Draper monologue!

Watch “TS!W 720: An Irish-American Tells the Real Story of St. Patrick’s Day” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 191: “I Love It When You Call Me il Papa!”

March 19, 2013

I realized a week ago that noted iO West Irish-American Sean Cowhig was in the Top Story! Weekly cast on St. Patrick’s Day, and I couldn’t let that opportunity go by without poking fun at Sean’s – and my – Irish heritage. Here’s the result; Sean, Phillip Wilburn and Lauren Miller all hit it out of the park!

With Justin Bieber back in the news due to his rough week in London, and Tillery Johnson in our cast, it was time for another Bieber sketch. And this one Tillery helped me write!

Watch “Justin Bieber Turns 19” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 189: “Sequester? I Don’t Even Care About Her!”

March 5, 2013

When Justin Bieber hosted “Saturday Night Live” about a month ago, Tillery Johnson happened to be in the cast of Top Story! Weekly that week. And since Tillery bears an uncanny resemblence to Biebs I wrote a sketch about the afterparty with Justin indulging in the pot and sizzurp and naked butt Instagramming of which he seems to have been so fond lately. It didn’t make it in that week, although I got good feedback. But when Till was in the show again the weekend of Biebs’ 19th birthday, I resubmitted it – this time, with the addition of Brian Vestal’s awesome Mark Wahlberg (who had just been in the show a few minutes earlier). Enjoy!
