Avoid Carmageddon II with Top Story! Weekly!!

September 28, 2012

Last summer it was “Carmageddon” – and this weekend it’s the sequel!!

But we at Top Story! Weekly are doing our part to make things run as smoothly this time as they did last time, by taking part in LA Metro‘s “Eat, Shop and Play Locally” program!

This Sunday, September 30, you can get two-for-one tickets to our show – featuring Frank Conniff from “Mystery Science Theater 3000!” Just show up at the iO West box office prior to our show at 9, and show your valid TAP card or your Metro ticket, and provided tickets are available you can get two tickets for the low price of $5! And your tickets will get you into all shows at iO West that night – including “Deskpiece Nation,” featuring writers from “Conan”, at 10, and “Back to School,” a sketch show with lots of TS!W writers and performers, at 11!

You can only get this discount at the box office on Sunday, so please don’t call in advance or try to buy them online. And iO West has a full bar, so you need to be 21 or over to see a show on the Mainstage. Valet parking is available for $5 with validation.

And here’s a bonus: we have a very limited number of comps for this show – if you’d like one, please tweet at us at @topstoryweekly and if we haven’t run out we’ll add you to our comp list! (Maximum two comps per person).

So do your part to make sure that “Carmageddon 2” isn’t a disaster – play locally in Hollywood Sunday by heading over to iO West for Top Story! Weekly!

Watch “El Alcalde Es Occupado” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 129: “Maybe Cain Isn’t Able”!!

December 7, 2011

Mayor Villaraigosa negotiates the end of the “Occupy L.A.” protests the same week that Top Story! Weekly has Neil Garguilo (Principal Cox from MTV’s “Awkward” and iO West‘s Dr. God, and one of our regular cast members as well) in the cast? That makes it time to revisit one of our favorite recurring sketches – the telenovela with Los Angeles’ Mayor, “El Alcalde de la Pasion!!”

EL ALCALDE ES OCCUPADO by Michael Hughes

Starring Neil Garguilo (Antonio Villaraigosa), John Druska (Police Chief Charlie Beck), Jen Cain (Mae), Kipleigh Brown (Tiffany), Jimmy Guidish (Troy), Tammie Smalls (Gloria), Derek Reid (Donovan) and Phillip Wilburn (Announcer),

Watch “El Alcalde y La Profesora Caliente” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 94: “Okey Dokey”

March 24, 2011

One of my all-time favorite recurring sketches in Top Story! Weekly is “El Alcalde de la PasiĆ³n,” where we depict L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as the star of a telenovela who is consumed with….PASSION! We haven’t been able to do it in quite some time since Neil Garguilo – who indelibly plays El Alcalde (and is one of my favorite people to write for in the world – in fact, who just plain is one of my favorite people in the world) – hasn’t been available on Sunday in a while. Fortunately, he was available this past Sunday – and with the layoffs hitting the LAUSD, the opportunity to make El Alcalde hot for teacher was too good to pass up!

Starring Neil Garguilo (Antonio Villaraigosa) and Melissa Okey (Ms. Miller)
