Watch “Rosemary Lehmberg Explains Rick Perry’s Indictment” From Top Story! Weekly Episode 262: “Perry Deep Trouble”

August 22, 2014

News of Rick Perry’s indictment broke on Friday, after the script for that Sunday’s Top Story! Weekly was locked. And we didn’t really have anyone in the cast to play Rick Perry. But when I saw that Perry’s troubles arose out of the drunk driving arrest of a political rival, I realized that was the way to hit the story. I churned this out in about 40 minutes, and Stacy Rumaker did an absolutely awesome job as the drunk D.A. explaining the case. And at the end is our tribute to Robin Williams who had passed away the preceding Monday.

Watch “Out of Africa” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 261: “Hawaiian Punch”!

The news has been so seriously lately that it’s been a challenge to come up with comedy about it.  But with the Ebola outbreak, I thought mocking the hysteria among Americans might be the way to go.  Plus it’s always fun to write a rant for Bennie Arthur!
