Watch “Planes, Trains and Automobies II” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 83: “It Goes to ’11”

January 5, 2011

My friend Matt Moore and I have a Christmas week tradition of watching “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” together. When the so-called “snowpocalypse” struck the East Coast after Christmas, and I realized I had two cast members in Top Story! Weekly who really could pull off Steve Martin and John Candy…well, there was no way I couldn’t write this sketch!

The “snowpocalypse” striking the East Coast right before New Year’s Eve may strand two travelers together – just like they were in a classic movie comedy from the ’80’s!

Watch “2 Damn High” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 75: “2 Damn High”

October 27, 2010

When Jimmy McMillan from The Rent’s Too Damn High Party went viral, I knew he was a classic example of a one-week story, so to make the most of him I put two sketches in Top Story! Weekly about him. Here’s the one I wrote. Jason Kelley as McMillan looks amazing.

Are you a New Yorker who wants to move into an apartment you can’t afford, get rid of an annoying mountain, or marry a shoe? There’s a political party for you!
