Watch “Credit Where Credit Is Due” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 111: “On a Hot Tin Debt Ceiling”

August 4, 2011

For the first time in a long time, I was an actor in Top Story! Weekly on July 20. And I was even in a sketch I wrote for myself, a fun little piece about the debt ceiling nonsense in which I was ably assisted by Deanna Russo and John Druska.

Watch “You’re So Two Thousand and Eight” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 69: “Nooooooooooooooooo!”

September 21, 2010

As someone who hopes to put comedy before ideology, I like it when I can take shots at my own side – particularly when my own side includes flighty, trendy voters who hopped on the Obama bandwagon two years ago because it was the cool thing to do.

Two Democratic operatives visit some 2008 Obama supporters to find out the reason for their “enthusiasm gap!”
