Watch Gupta and Lata from “Outsourced” Talk About the New Fall Schedule – with Parvesh Cheena and Sharmila Devar – from Top Story! Weekly Episode 103: “Apocalypse Now?”

May 31, 2011

Top Story! Weekly has more than once gotten people from NBC shows to guest star on a Sunday that happened to fall right after the network cancelled their show. Memorably, Brian Kiley – Conan O’Brien’s head monologue writer – was our special guest two days after the final episode of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien”. And this month Parvesh Cheena from “Outsourced” was our guest star the Sunday after NBC announced the show would not be on the new fall schedule. Parv was great – you can watch his sketches on the TS!W website – and incredibly good natured about the show’s cancellation. So much so that he, and his equally awesome co-star Sharmila Devar did this segment – as their characters Gupta and Lata – about the new fall schedule. (And I worked in a little good-natured joke about my friend Jason Ritter.)

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!
