Watch “Bossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 125: “Top Scary! Weekly”

November 7, 2011

I’m always telling the cast of “Top Story! Weekly” to be proactive in generating material to showcase themselves. So on the rare occasions when I’m in the cast, I’d be a hypocrite not to take my own advice, right? So with the premiere of Kelsey Grammer’s new show on Starz, “Boss,” I thought I’d have some fun with my competent impersonation of the star of “Frasier.” I’m not mortified with the results, which for me is a win!


Starring Michael Hughes (Kelsey Grammer/Tom Cane), Jim Nieb (Gus Van Sant), Grasie Mercedes (Karen Aldridge/Dr. Ella Harris), Derek Reid (Gary) and Phillip Wilburn (Cliff Clavin/John Ratzenberger)

Directed by Tom Repetto


Watch “Planes, Trains and Automobies II” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 83: “It Goes to ’11”

January 5, 2011

My friend Matt Moore and I have a Christmas week tradition of watching “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” together. When the so-called “snowpocalypse” struck the East Coast after Christmas, and I realized I had two cast members in Top Story! Weekly who really could pull off Steve Martin and John Candy…well, there was no way I couldn’t write this sketch!

The “snowpocalypse” striking the East Coast right before New Year’s Eve may strand two travelers together – just like they were in a classic movie comedy from the ’80’s!
