Watch “El Alcalde Es Occupado” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 129: “Maybe Cain Isn’t Able”!!

December 7, 2011

Mayor Villaraigosa negotiates the end of the “Occupy L.A.” protests the same week that Top Story! Weekly has Neil Garguilo (Principal Cox from MTV’s “Awkward” and iO West‘s Dr. God, and one of our regular cast members as well) in the cast? That makes it time to revisit one of our favorite recurring sketches – the telenovela with Los Angeles’ Mayor, “El Alcalde de la Pasion!!”


Starring Neil Garguilo (Antonio Villaraigosa), John Druska (Police Chief Charlie Beck), Jen Cain (Mae), Kipleigh Brown (Tiffany), Jimmy Guidish (Troy), Tammie Smalls (Gloria), Derek Reid (Donovan) and Phillip Wilburn (Announcer),

Directed by Michael Hughes


Watch “El Alcalde y La Profesora Caliente” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 94: “Okey Dokey”

March 24, 2011

One of my all-time favorite recurring sketches in Top Story! Weekly is “El Alcalde de la PasiĆ³n,” where we depict L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as the star of a telenovela who is consumed with….PASSION! We haven’t been able to do it in quite some time since Neil Garguilo – who indelibly plays El Alcalde (and is one of my favorite people to write for in the world – in fact, who just plain is one of my favorite people in the world) – hasn’t been available on Sunday in a while. Fortunately, he was available this past Sunday – and with the layoffs hitting the LAUSD, the opportunity to make El Alcalde hot for teacher was too good to pass up!

Watch “El Alcalde No Le Gustan Arizona” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 53: “Like Oil and Water”

May 25, 2010

The second of two sketches I had in the great episode of Top Story! Weekly that featured an awesome set by Bobcat Goldthwait (watch the whole episode – it’s well worth your time). “El Alcalde de la Pasion” is a longrunning telenovela spoof about L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa that was created by Scott Garner. When the LA city council passed a boycott of Arizona – and with all the key players in the cast for this show – the opportunity was too good to pass up. Neil Garguilo, Artemis Pebdani and Phillip Wilburn are all brilliant in this sketch.

In this installment of “El Alcalde de la Pasion,” Antonio Villaraigosa discovers that if L.A. boycotts Arizona because of the state’s new immigration law, the boycott extends to everything from Arizona – including Cindy McCain!!!
