Watch “Kate’s Great in Any Language” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 168: “Shuttling the Percentages”

September 26, 2012

When every country in Europe except the UK printed those topless photos of Kate Middleton, it was time to dust out the broad stereotypes and have some fun! This didn’t land as well as I had hoped but it was still fun.

Watch “Wingmom” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 161: “Let It Flow in the Pool”!!

August 9, 2012

My first sketch in Top Story! Weekly in several weeks (it’s getting competitive!). When I heard about Ryan Lochte’s mom saying her son only has one-night stands, it was too good a comic target to pass up. And I don’t believe for a minute that a woman who was in her teens or 20’s in the 1970’s, and who married a swim coach, doesn’t know what a one-night stand is. Or that Ryan Lochte has never had one. And doesn’t Blake Walker look fetching in drag?

Watch “Double Merger, Triple Threat” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 144: “Stop! In the Name of Health Care!”

April 3, 2012

Since the results of the SAG/AFTRA merger were being announced on Friday – after our submission deadline, I had to think of a way to write a sketch that wasn’t dependent on the results (even though the fact that they were announcing them in a press conference was a pretty good sign that the merger was going to go through). So I thought about the lengths to which actors go to get a break…and this comic look emerged.

Watch “A Supreme Performance” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 144: “Stop! In the Name of Health Care!”

April 3, 2012

Thinking about how to approach the Supreme Court argument about the health care bill in a comedic way, I thought I could combine it with the other great meme of last week: Megan Draper’s dance at Don’s birthday party on “Mad Men.” Of course, the success of such a conceit depends upon the audience recognizing what’s going on, and I don’t think many folks in our audience got the reference – maybe because “Mad Men” airs at the same time our show goes up! Still, Grasie Mercedes did a great job with the dance.
