Watch “Barton, Fink” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 58: “(61) Days of Oil”

July 2, 2010

Another sketch I wrote – co-wrote, actually – from the Matthew Gray Gubler Top Story! Weekly show – only this one is without Criminal Minds‘ Dr. Spencer Reid. Brent Pope did a great job here as the congressman who thought the U.S. government should apologize to BP.

After apologizing to BP for President Obama’s “shakedown,” Texas Congressman Joe Barton has a lot more people to apologize to!

Watch “World Cup’s Balls” with Matthew Gray Gubler from Top Story! Weekly Episode 58: “(61) Days of Summer”

June 23, 2010

Okay, I didn’t write this sketch – Matt Blitz did – but I’m posting it on my blog for three reasons: it features our guest star from this past Sunday, Matthew Gray Gubler aka Dr. Spencer Reid from CBS’ “Criminal Minds;” it’s about the USA in the World Cup, which is super timely this morning; and it’s hilarious. Sometimes there’s nothing funnier than watching a guy get kicked in his junk.

Watch “To iO West and Beyond!” with Matthew Gray Gubler from Top Story! Weekly Episode 58: “(61) Days of Summer”

June 23, 2010

Matthew Gray Gubler – Dr. Spencer Reid from CBS’ “Criminal Minds” – guest starred in Top Story! Weekly Sunday and could not have been nicer – or funnier! Here’s the opening sketch from that show – based upon a comment that Gregg Lopez made over a year ago when we were picking names for the show, about the likelihood that someone might confuse our show’s name with the name of a certain Pixar franchise whose latest installment opened this past weekend!

A misreading of a title brings an excited couple to iO West for what they think is a showing of “Toy Story 3!”
