Watch “A Tonight Tradition” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 241: “Malaysian Mystery!”

March 19, 2014

The concept of a Johnny Carson sex tape was so rich for comedy that we did two sketches in one show on it. The first – by Sean Tierney – probably played a little better, but mine was fun too.

Watch “Barton, Fink” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 58: “(61) Days of Oil”

July 2, 2010

Another sketch I wrote – co-wrote, actually – from the Matthew Gray Gubler Top Story! Weekly show – only this one is without Criminal Minds‘ Dr. Spencer Reid. Brent Pope did a great job here as the congressman who thought the U.S. government should apologize to BP.

After apologizing to BP for President Obama’s “shakedown,” Texas Congressman Joe Barton has a lot more people to apologize to!
