Watch “Harding After Hours” From Top Story! Weekly Episode 257: “The Heat Is Off!”

July 18, 2014

A line flub turned into a happy accident that made the scene. When Bennie Arthur accidentally called Tillery Johnson “Henry Fonda” instead of “Henry Ford”, this sketch about the erotic letters Warren G. Harding sent to his mistress could have been derailed. Instead, because the cast was listening and paying attention, it became even more hilarious.

The Official 2011 Academy Awards Drinking Game!!

February 23, 2011

So for the past couple of years – i.e., 2008, 2009 and 2010 – I’ve posted on our show’s website my “official” rules for the Academy Awards drinking game. Well, it’s that time again – so check out the “official” rules of the 2011 Academy Awards Drinking Game!!

And what better place to watch the Oscars than on Hollywood Boulevard itself? So if you don’t have a ticket to the Kodak, head about a mile east to iO West to watch the show on the big screen in the Mainstage starting at 5:30!! Then stick around after the show for an all-new Top Story! Weekly with special guest Steve Wright, followed by an all-new Deskpiece Nation featuring writers from “Conan” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” iO West has a full bar (so it’s 21+ for Mainstage shows – bring your ID!) and will feature an Oscar night special – $5 Champagne splits. Plus iO West has valet parking right next door on Cosmo, so for just $5 with validation you won’t have to worry about all the restrictions that night!

Watch “California Cuttin'” with Nicholas D’Agosto from Top Story! Weekly Episode 85: “The Age of Ophiuchus”

January 20, 2011

Unfortunately the sound is crappy on this one – the substitute video guy didn’t set up a mic near the stage – but you can still enjoy some fun work by our cast, including Nicholas D’Agosto, who you might know as West Rosen from “Heroes” and from starring in “Fired Up” and the forthcoming “From Prada to Nada” and “Final Destination 5”!

The California budget crisis means Jerry Brown is making state employees give up their cell phones – and a lot of other state perks that seem to be synonymous with being from California!

To see all the sketches from Top Story! Weekly as soon as they’re posted, subscribe to our YouTube channel!
