Watch “Moneygall for Nothing” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 104: “Rehab Has Them Now”

June 1, 2011

So after I wrote this sketch, I realized it had the same basic construct as the “Schwarzenegger meets his illegitimate son” sketch I wrote last week: a politician’s mannerisms, speaking patterns and tropes are mirrored unexpectedly by someone related to him. But the sketch came out well, and the audience dug it, and I don’t think most of them were at last week’s show anyway. Plus, I wrote a sketch about Ireland that wasn’t about drinking and potatoes and sexual frustration.


Starring Matthew Harris (Barack Obama), Sean Cowhig (Enda Kenny), Phillip Wilburn (Henry Healy), Kipleigh Brown (Colleen), Tommy Bechtold (Seamus) and Christopher Biewer (Ollie Hayes)
