Herrmerrn's School of French Kissing for Dogs

"I won the lottery, so I can do whatever I want. That's why I bought out Arby's. But you already know that, from my other commercials. So fuck the haters."

Produced for The Midnight Show, featuring past JJGo guest Hal Rudnick and written by past JJGo guest Heather Campbell.

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life: Hospital

| 0 comments

This is the sketch they played in my birthing class. Unfortunately, they played it with the sound all the way down, so you couldn't hear any of the dialogue. You could just barely make out the sound of the machine that goes "bing," though. Graham Chapman was a physician, of course, and I suppose that meant that some of the group's sharpest satire was reserved for the world of medicine.

Elephant Larry's Treehouse: Deep Impact!

| 1 comment

In this episode of Elephant Larry's Treehouse, a tiny sitcom in which the members of Elephant Larry live in a treehouse but the fact that they live in a treehouse doesn't really come up very often, Geoff and Stefan argue about Stefan's planned shot-for-shot remake of Deep Impact.

Fun fact: Stefan designs our logos!

Hot Dogs!

I have received word that past TSOYA guests the Whitest Kids U Know will be returning to IFC in April. Which made me think about this sketch about Hot Dogs, which is one of my favorite comedy sketches ever. EVER.

Buddy Cole Gets His Own Bar

| 0 comments

I really enjoyed getting the chance to talk with Scott Thompson about his amazing character Buddy Cole earlier this week. I agree that you could hardly have a sharper, smarter character than Buddy.

"Maybe that's why God's such a homophobe and Satan's so sexy..."

(Thanks to Brian Stack for this one - I'd never seen it on video. So, so funny.)

We had a really fun show last month as part of San Francisco Sketchfest, thanks to everyone who came out, our great performers and interview guests, Sketchfest and the Eureka Theatre. If you missed it, it's all here for you in convenient podcast form.

Baron Vaughn is a standup comedian who splits his time between LA and NYC. You can also see him on the USA series "Fairly Legal".

Kasper Hauser is, of course, one of our favorite sketch groups and an important part of the San Francisco comedy scene. You can subscribe to The Kasper Hauser Podcast on our site to hear more from them.

We also have a chat with Steve Dildarian, creator of the HBO series The Life and Times of Tim (you might know several of his Superbowl Budweiser spots, among many other commercials, created in his former life as an ad man). (Transcript)

We brought on the very funny writer, actor, and director Bobcat Goldthwait to talk about his latest directorial effort, World's Greatest Dad, why he quit standup comedy, and setting the record straight on some of the past antics. (Transcript)

And, in case that wasn't enough -- we had a great musical set from singer-songwriter John Vanderslice, whose new album White Wilderness is out now (go buy it!).

Another wonderful preview clip from Fred Armisen & Carrie Brownstein's Portlandia, which premiers January 21st on IFC. (Who I work for part time). I could not be more excited.
