Shane Boroomand

Corey vs. His Nemesis

Magic Meathands Original video #7!

Written and starring myself, directed and edited by Shane Boroomand and myself. Camera-osity by Randy Turner. Those last couple shots were so difficult to do. So gross. My nemesis in this video is truly disgusting to me. No acting necessary. In fact, I’m doing Oscar-worthy acting every time I see my nemesis in normal day-to-day life. So this was very cathartic for me. Despite the ending. I hope it brings you some amusement. Meanwhile, I will be rocking myself in the corner from the emotional trauma.

Happy New Year, everyone! More tomfoolery and shenanigans coming in 2011!

Gabby’s Good Luck Minute

Magic Meathands Original video #6!

Written, directed and edited by Nikki Turner, this video features our newest Meathand, Kathie Bostian. Kevin Callahan plays a sports guru that… well, I don’t want to ruin the ending. There’s also a little bit of me, Shane Boroomand, Mary Benedict, and Lily Gatica. Randy Turner handled the camera with some assist from non-Meathand Scott Hrebek (who also happens to be an ace guitar player).

My character is thinking, “Yup, this white thing is still on the wall. Looks like my job here is done.”

Gotcha

Magic Meathands Original video #5!

Written, directed and edited by Shane Boroomand, with Shane and myself as a pair of wannabe pranksters and Mary Benedict as Prof. Dorfman. Randy Turner on camera.

The car crossing in front was completely unplanned. So whoever that is driving by, great car acting!

Quick reminder: 2 live Magic Meathands shows this weekend!

ManCoaster

Magic Meathands sketch comedy video #4!

Written, directed and edited by Nikki Turner, and starring Shane Boroomand and Travis McElroy, with Mary Benedict and Liz Gill. There’s also a quick appearance by me in the crucial role of the Ticket Taker.

This was the most production heavy of the initial batch of videos we made, complete with green screen and CGI velociraptor with missile launching arms. We had to cut the velociraptor because he kept blowing his lines.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy! We’re having a blast making these for you, and more are in the works. Stay tuned! (Or… stay internetted. Or whatever.)

Pants: A Nightmare

Magic Meathands sketch comedy video #3!

This one has a whole lot of me in it. I wrote it, I co-directed it (with fellow Meathand Kevin Callahan who was a great help in breaking this sucker down so we had a super-efficient shoot), I starred in it, I wrote the music (or as I like to call it, sonic enhancement), I edited it. So there’s me all over. But it would simply not exist at all without the Magic Meathands. The fantastic camera work is by Wendy J.N. Lee (she also provided invaluable technical consulting). I absolutely love the freaky taunting by Shane Boroomand, Lara Sterling, Travis McElroy, Kevin Callahan and Mary Benedict. And of course Nikki Turner as Mom. Getting her costuming to work was way harder than I expected but it came out way better than I expected so it was way worth it. Way.

I hope you enjoy it. If so, please comment, give it thumbs up at YouTube, favorite it, forward it on, and all those other things people do on the Interwebs.

Check back next week for the fourth and final video from our first batch of videos.

And there’s more to come! Yesterday, we shot another batch, and again one of them is written by me. So it’s off to the land of editing with me once again. You’ll probably start seeing the second wave in December or January.

Eddie the Enforcer

New sketch comedy video with me!

I provided the voice-over and also appear in this mock commercial written and directed by fellow Magic Meathands performer Shane Boroomand.

Also featured are Kevin Callahan, Nikki Turner, and Mary Benedict.

I recorded most of the voice-over in one take with memories of all of those awful “as seen on TV” ads that seemed to infest daytime and late late night. I don’t know, maybe they still do.

Anyway, this is the first of a new series of sketch comedy videos that the Magic Meathands have produced and are producing. I hope you enjoy! We’ve had a blast making them! To make sure you don’t miss any of them, subscribe to either my YouTube page (for ones with me) or the Magic Meathands YouTube page.

Don’t forget: The Magic Meathands are performing at the Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica this Friday!

Dawn celebrates 100 shows with the Magic Meathands

On November 12, 2009, fellow improviser Dawn Akemi was inducted into the Magic Meathands‘ Century Club. It’s an honor bestowed upon those who perform 100 shows with the company. Being that the director is the only one who knows how many shows the players do, this came as a complete surprise to Dawn, who had convinced herself that another player would be next. (She’s only the third inductee, following Andrew Pari and Nikki Turner, who you can see in the background of the video below).

Here is Dawn being roasted by her fellow player Shane Boroomand, who has a little fun with Dawn’s… um… shyness? (Yeah right)

Congratulation, Dawn!!!!!!

(My best guess is that Shane is next for the Century Club. But it could also be Heather Brumley.)
