Watch “Nothing to iSee Here” From Top Story! Weekly Episode 122: “Good-Night, Sweet Nerd”

October 14, 2011

Trying to figure out how to get comedy out of last week’s big story – the death of Steve Jobs – it dawned on me that the way to approach it would be to focus on what happened at Apple the day before: the underwhelming launch of the new iPhone 4S. The audience reaction isn’t huge in this video – it was the opening sketch, and I think they were warming up – but I think it’s a pretty solid effort. After all, references to hoverboards are always funny.

September 21, 2010

As someone who hopes to put comedy before ideology, I like it when I can take shots at my own side – particularly when my own side includes flighty, trendy voters who hopped on the Obama bandwagon two years ago because it was the cool thing to do.

Two Democratic operatives visit some 2008 Obama supporters to find out the reason for their “enthusiasm gap!”
