Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel just got significantly better because I’m in one of the videos! I was thrilled to get to work with director Sean Becker and writer/actor Jeff Lewis again, this time for Episode 6 of Chatroom of Solitude. The episode stars Colin Ferguson (Eureka) as Marvelous Man, Annie Sertich (The Groundlings, correspondent for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) as Sheila Marvelous, Vince Caso (The Guild) as Josh Marvelous, and Laura Ortiz (Holliston) as Tabitha Marvelous. Jeff Lewis (The Guild, The Jeff Lewis 5-Minute Comedy Hour) also shows up as Dirty Math Teacher.
It was a lot of fun to be a part of this. Colin really went above and beyond for our scene, as did the excellent crew. You’ll see me in one more episode, so go subscribe!
Here’s a video made through a spontaneous team-up with Weyward Sisters Productions. It was great fun to meet them and collaborate on this. Hopefully it’s enjoyable whether you know about comic books or not. In case it helps, go through the jump for the back story and info on how this was made through the magic of Facebook.
The Magic Meathands are giving their audiences special gifts during this month’s shows! Check out this special video with Shane Boroomand and Nikki Turner for details. (Edited by Corey Blake [why, that's me!])
Come see us at the Mary Pickford Studio, 8885 Venice Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90034 on Saturday, December 10 (with our improving friends Jump Start!) and Saturday, December 17 (with our other improving friends The Callbacks!), both at 8 PM. Tickets are $7.
The above was cross-posted on the Magic Meathands blog. I’ve been a member of the Magic Meathands for nearly 3 years, performing well over 100 shows of improvised comedy. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, give yourself a treat and catch one of our shows.
It’s another sketch comedy video for your entertainment enjoyment!
This one is a preview of a brand new historical TV series that will blow you away with its textbook accuracy while still being entertaining and yes, even sexy! I did the voice over and I also had a scene as General Robert E. Lee that will have historians talking for decades. Also featured in this video is Shane Boroomand, Mary Benedict (also the writer and director), Kathie Bostian and Nikki Turner.
So this should take care of any political aspirations I might have.
I can’t figure out how to embed Funny or Die videos here so once the Poopdog Entertainment people post it to YouTube, I’ll do a new post embedding it here. I think this is the third video I’ve done with Sam Sero and Poopdog. Mayer for Mayor Part 1 will have a part 2, maybe a part 3, and who knows how many more as the 2012 elections fever ramps up.
This video also features fellow Meathand Seth Rotkin. We had too much fun shooting the scene at the table where he’s coaching me. Not sure if more of that will ever surface in future installments.
The production company Tool of North America is putting the show on, streaming live so that we’ll be able to take your suggestions over the intertubes as if we were performing in person right in front of you. Truly, we are in the future!
The show starts at 11:00 AM Pacific. See you then!
Fellow Magic Meathand Kathie Bostian has been on a long journey competing with other comedic improvisers in an elimination-style show called The X-Ecution, a joint production by The Improv Space and iO West. It all started on March 31st with 24 improvisers. Each week, a contestant has been voted off based on their performance, feedback from a panel of judges, and votes from a live audience. After last Friday’s show, we’re down to the Final 3 and one more show. And the great news is that Kathie is still in the running! The big winner gets $500 and meetings with heads of casting from Fox, ABC, NBC and CBS.
For last week’s show, the Top 4 were each asked to write and produce a 4-minute video starring themselves in a hero’s journey. Kathie not only asked me to be in her video, she asked me to play every male role in the whole dang thing. That ended up being 3 different characters. Other Meathands helped out too. Mary Benedict played the other women characters that weren’t Kathie, and the whole thing was edited by Shane Boroomand. The video played during last week’s show, and I’m told it was a big hit.
Watch it for yourself and let me know what you think:
The final show is this Thursday night, 8 PM, at The Improv Space.
The popular Gamer characters are back for the expanded version of that world-famous board game Calcatron! If you’ve ever played a game with someone that takes it a tad too seriously, you’ll probably relate. But to be fair, the red tokens are a pretty intuitive add-on once you’ve used prime numbers to determine who goes first.
Also, I friggin’ love the screen capture YouTube selected for this one.
Mary Benedict wrote and directed this one, and also played the part of Mary. I play Corey, Nikki Turner played Nikki and Kathie Bostian played Kathie. Pretty tricky character names, huh? Shane Boroomand was the cameraman and editor. Nick DeBenedetto handled sound.
To see Mary’s first attempt at playing a board game with us, check out this video.
