Watch “It Was Up To You, New York” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 108: “Just One More Thing…”

July 6, 2011

We put our scripts together on Friday nights. And on Friday night, June 24, the New York State Senate was voting on gay marriage. Clearly it was a story we’d have to address in Top Story! Weekly if it passed. Originally, I wrote this sketch so that famous New Yorkers were urging the Senate to vote in favor of gay marriage. But as I was finalizing the script, the bill passed, so I changed it to a more celebratory sketch, which worked much better. But the real highlight of this sketch is the showcase of our cast’s awesome impersonations. I looked at who we had that week, thought of who they could do, and the results were awesome. The audience applause got louder with every entrance.

Watch “Sex and the Cosmos” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 48: “The Tiger Went Down to Georgia”

April 17, 2010

I thought I might start posting videos of my sketches from Top Story! Weekly onto my own blog so more folks might get a chance to see them. This is one I wrote for the April 11 show, about the fact that four women were in space for the first time.

For the first time ever, four women are in space at the same time – and their names are Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha!
