Watch “He’s Just That Into You” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 62: “Shirley You Can’t Be Serious”

August 3, 2010

I love writing sketches designed for particular actors in the Top Story! Weekly cast – so when I saw the story about Jennifer Aniston’s stalker Jason Peyton, I knew it would be a great chance to write a sketch for Shannon Ayers’ awesome Aniston impersonation!

Jennifer Aniston may have found a new man – her stalker!

Any time I can find a reason to write for one of the Top Story! Weekly cast‘s recurring characters it’s fun. When the cast member is Artemis Pebdani and the recurring character is Kim Jong-Il, it’s a blast!

Did you hear about that Internet poll where users voted to have Justin Bieber take his tour to North Korea? Turns out it wasn’t a prank – but a plot by Justin Bieber’s biggest fan – Kim Jong-Il!

I didn’t write this sketch – but i directed it, and it’s a great one so I’m posting it here so more people can see it. It’s from Sunday night’s Top Story! Weekly, where our special guest was Jim Parrack, who plays Hoyt Fortenberry on HBO’s “True Blood.” To see all of Jim’s sketches, just follow this link.

When Jim Parrack of HBO’s “True Blood” visits a school to talk about his show, he’s surprised to find out he’s not addressing high school students but third graders!

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….

Watch “Ashes to Ashes” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 49: “No More Kings”

April 23, 2010

Here’s a sketch I wrote about the air traffic chaos resulting from the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull. When you have to fly safely through a volcanic plume, you need a hero – especially a hero who crash-landed a plane into the Hudson River saving 155 lives!

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!
