Top Things Overheard At the Emmys!!

September 25, 2012

And the Emmy goes to. . . Whitney Cummings. Psych!

If “Mad Men” loses, you “comfort” Christina Hendricks, and I’ll “comfort” Jon Hamm.

Neil Patrick Harris just offered to show me his “statue.” In the men’s room.

Best Supporting Actor? Now they’re just giving everything to Betty White!

To get through this show, I bought a little something from the guys from “Breaking Bad”.

I just stood between Sofia Vergara and Christina Hendricks. So I guess for me this just became the Golden Globes!

And this is your mother. Now you’ve finally met her.

In person, Zooey Deschanel is even more adorkable!

Look, Lady Gaga’s here! Oh, it’s just Mike from “Mike and Molly”.

I sure hope Best Comedy goes to the Mitt Romney campaign!

I just saw Jessica Lange up close. Talk about an “American Horror Story”!

Watch “Thank You for Being in Heaven” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 56: “An Inconvenient Split”

June 12, 2010

The sad loss of Rue McClanahan gave us at Top Story! Weekly a chance to pay tribute with a “Golden Girls” parody. Unfortunately some really funny lines got lost when actors went up, but it’s still pretty funny.

Golden Girls Dorothy Zbornak and Sophia Petrillo get a wonderful surprise in the afterlife, when Blanche Devereaux arrives!

Watch “Backlash At St. Olaf” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 53: “Like Oil and Water”

May 19, 2010

The first of two sketches I wrote for the great episode of Top Story! Weekly from this past Sunday, with Bobcat Goldthwait. Like the rest of America, I loved Betty White on SNL. But that didn’t stop me from writing a sketch about the possibility of a backlash. Which led to Bobcat sharing a story during his set about his experience guesting in “Golden Palace.”

Sure, Betty White was great hosting “Saturday Night Live”…but maybe the hype has gone just a little too far….

Watch “The Mystery of the G-8 Summit” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 52: “Oil and Greece Don’t Mix”

May 15, 2010

In the days before the Obama presidency, Phillip Wilburn and Artemis Pebdani often got to do their terrific George and Laura Bush characters in our sketches. The publication of Laura’s book gave me a chance to write a sketch where we got to revisit that awesome chemistry.

Now that Laura Bush has written her first book, “Spoken from the Heart,” she’s going to tackle a mystery – about who poisoned the American delegation during 2007’s G-8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany!
