Watch “The Unfriendly Skies” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 113: “AAA Gets Towed Away!”

August 11, 2011

My other sketch from this past week’s show, about the FAA shutdown. I’m happy, among other things, that it gave Peter Fluet the chance to reprise a classic line from the old Big News show: “Hot coffee! Cold milk! Warm half and half!”

Watch “Know Your Debt Ceiling” – with Jimmy Pardo and Andrés du Bouchet from “Conan” – from Top Story! Weekly Episode 112: “Dancing on the Debt Ceiling”

August 4, 2011

Phillip Wilburn and Matt Moore went to a taping of “Conan” and chatted with Jimmy Pardo, who was booked as our guest comic for the July 31 show. Jimmy said he’d also do a sketch, and Phillip suggested one where he played a game show host. Since his “Conan” colleague Andrés du Bouchet was also in the cast it was a natural to put him in the sketch along with Matt and Phillip. I did a first pass, Phillip and Tommy Bechtold polished it up, and the result is the six minutes of hilarity you see here.

On Sunday, June 5 Top Story! Weekly does my sketch about how Congressman Anthony Weiner tries to explain how pictures of a penis ended up on his Twitter account. On Monday, June 6, the real Anthony Weiner admits that the pictures were in fact of him. Coincidence? You be the judge!

May 18, 2011

What’s that? A Republican Congressman posed shirtless on the cover of Men’s Health, showing off his rock hard abs? During a week when Top Story! Weekly has Matt Moore in the cast? Yeah, I think we might be able to do a sketch about that…

March 19, 2011

Yes, Newt Gingrich actually blamed the fact that he cheated on his wife on the fact that he loved America too much. So that proved a perfect topic for comedy with our guest star, Deanna Russo from “Knight Rider!”
