Watch “Bossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 125: “Top Scary! Weekly”

November 7, 2011

I’m always telling the cast of “Top Story! Weekly” to be proactive in generating material to showcase themselves. So on the rare occasions when I’m in the cast, I’d be a hypocrite not to take my own advice, right? So with the premiere of Kelsey Grammer’s new show on Starz, “Boss,” I thought I’d have some fun with my competent impersonation of the star of “Frasier.” I’m not mortified with the results, which for me is a win!


Starring Michael Hughes (Kelsey Grammer/Tom Cane), Jim Nieb (Gus Van Sant), Grasie Mercedes (Karen Aldridge/Dr. Ella Harris), Derek Reid (Gary) and Phillip Wilburn (Cliff Clavin/John Ratzenberger)

Directed by Tom Repetto

Watch “To iO West and Beyond!” with Matthew Gray Gubler from Top Story! Weekly Episode 58: “(61) Days of Summer”

June 23, 2010

Matthew Gray Gubler – Dr. Spencer Reid from CBS’ “Criminal Minds” – guest starred in Top Story! Weekly Sunday and could not have been nicer – or funnier! Here’s the opening sketch from that show – based upon a comment that Gregg Lopez made over a year ago when we were picking names for the show, about the likelihood that someone might confuse our show’s name with the name of a certain Pixar franchise whose latest installment opened this past weekend!

A misreading of a title brings an excited couple to iO West for what they think is a showing of “Toy Story 3!”
