Watch “Every Interview Is a Winding Road” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 183: “Coming Clean”

January 22, 2013

Lance Armstrong. Manti Te’o. What a great week this past week was for comedy about the news. We had Mike McLendon in our cast that week to play Lance and Tammie Smalls to play Oprah so at the readthrough we brainstormed ideas on how to hit the interview. I riffed, “Sheryl Crow doesn’t really exist”…and here’s the result!

When Rod Blagojevich got sentenced last week, I figured I’d throw myself into the cast of Top Story! Weekly to reprise my role. Jimmy and James did a great job with the pace of this one.

Watch “The Mystery of the G-8 Summit” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 52: “Oil and Greece Don’t Mix”

May 15, 2010

In the days before the Obama presidency, Phillip Wilburn and Artemis Pebdani often got to do their terrific George and Laura Bush characters in our sketches. The publication of Laura’s book gave me a chance to write a sketch where we got to revisit that awesome chemistry.

Now that Laura Bush has written her first book, “Spoken from the Heart,” she’s going to tackle a mystery – about who poisoned the American delegation during 2007’s G-8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany!
