Charlie on Parole-a “long” short with comedians TJ Miller and Joe Wengert. It’s been posted on Splitsider and the Comic’s Comic, but I think you have now have time to watch and will thus more likely click on it (meaning this is 22 minutes and you have time to watch now).
Puddin’-Eddie Pepitone’s Daily Live Action Comic Strip-“Velveeta”
I don’t know why I haven’t found out about this until just now, but if you 15 spare minutes, watch and enjoy “Eagles Turning People Into Horses”.
Kyle Reiter and I created a new show for Channel 101 called Legend of the White Tiger. Shot by the incredible Todd Bishop and staring Halle Detrixhe, Kelsy Abbott, Jeremy LaPeer, Rob Schrab, Ryan Nagata, Sammy Primero and me. Voices provided by Kelsy Abbott, Steve Agee, Todd Bishop, Rob Schrab, Kate Freund and Kyle Reiter as Big Wind! Thanks to all of our friends for helping us and especially to Nick Plotquin! I had such a great time making this with my boys and am overwhelmed by the amount of positive feedback. Thanks again!
Another solid portion of Channel 101!
Morning Debriefing 3/20/11
1) LA Comedy Shorts Festival taking place mostly at the Downtown Independent Theater April 7th-11th. Details here.
2) Last night at the Tomorrow Show presents WEIRD, I got a chance to see Paul Rust, Harris Wittels, and Michael Cassady as newly formed band “Don’t Stop or We’ll Die”, as one hell of a comical musical ruckus. They’re playing at Meltdown Comics April 23rd 8PM $8. Do. Not. Miss. This.
3) Continuing in awesome comedy music acts that I saw last night at the Tomorrow Show, I had a chance to be berated for not being from Portland by MOP, which was not at all shocking and also, hilarious. Though this clip isn’t “music”, but since I don’t know where they’re playing next, it’ll have to do.
4) The Tip of the Hat this week (technically, last week) goes to none other than Paul F. Tompkins for making it to his 9th Anniversary Show. Article to follow today (Seriously, it will come out later today. I didn’t write/post it last night because I would have started punching walls if I stayed at the Bureau offices for another minute yesterday)
