Watch “Thank You for Being in Heaven” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 56: “An Inconvenient Split”

June 12, 2010

The sad loss of Rue McClanahan gave us at Top Story! Weekly a chance to pay tribute with a “Golden Girls” parody. Unfortunately some really funny lines got lost when actors went up, but it’s still pretty funny.

Golden Girls Dorothy Zbornak and Sophia Petrillo get a wonderful surprise in the afterlife, when Blanche Devereaux arrives!

Watch “Backlash At St. Olaf” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 53: “Like Oil and Water”

May 19, 2010

The first of two sketches I wrote for the great episode of Top Story! Weekly from this past Sunday, with Bobcat Goldthwait. Like the rest of America, I loved Betty White on SNL. But that didn’t stop me from writing a sketch about the possibility of a backlash. Which led to Bobcat sharing a story during his set about his experience guesting in “Golden Palace.”

Sure, Betty White was great hosting “Saturday Night Live”…but maybe the hype has gone just a little too far….
