Watch “A Sterling Effort” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 248: “Clipped!”

May 9, 2014

I did a take on the Donald Sterling/Clippers matter by using the old “slice of life” approach. The pace is too slow in this scene, but I think you’ll get what I’m going for.

Watch “Justin Bieber Turns 19” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 189: “Sequester? I Don’t Even Care About Her!”

March 5, 2013

When Justin Bieber hosted “Saturday Night Live” about a month ago, Tillery Johnson happened to be in the cast of Top Story! Weekly that week. And since Tillery bears an uncanny resemblence to Biebs I wrote a sketch about the afterparty with Justin indulging in the pot and sizzurp and naked butt Instagramming of which he seems to have been so fond lately. It didn’t make it in that week, although I got good feedback. But when Till was in the show again the weekend of Biebs’ 19th birthday, I resubmitted it – this time, with the addition of Brian Vestal’s awesome Mark Wahlberg (who had just been in the show a few minutes earlier). Enjoy!

Watch “Cut4Whoever” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 182: “I’d Like to Give That Whore a Rusty Trombone!”

January 16, 2013

Whattya know? After two months I finally get a sketch in Top Story! Weekly again!

Our writing staff is so good that I hadn’t been able to get a sketch in since November. But when Brian O’Connell guest directed I knew I could try to go a little dark. And when the story (which turned out to be a fake) about Justin Bieber fans cutting themselves to try to get him to stop smoking pot, I knew I had just the right angle!
