Superego Bonus Action!

| 0 comments

Our pals at the wonderful comedy podcast Superego have put out a special bonus episode that features a sketch Jordan and I helped with called Amigos Auto Insurance. It was inspired by my horror at the commercials on Los Angeles hip-hop oldies station KDAY. The bonus episode is two bucks, but it's worth every penny. It's full of Superego's bizarre names and nonsense phrases and other wonderful stuff.

You can also check out the free episode on which we were featured, and here's a "Best Of" episode with some of my favorite sketches from their second season.

Will Forte as Ted Turner on Conan

"THE REEFER MAKES THEM CRAVE THE NEWTONS!"

Every time Will Forte comes on Conan as Ted Turner, I laugh at full volume in my house like an asshole. Full belly laughs. It is the funniest thing on television, and each new iteration gets funnier and funnier.

"WHEN I BOUGHT TBS IT WAS JUST A TRASH BAG FULL OF WRASSLIN' TAPES BEHIND A DAIRY QUEEN!"

"SHADDAP YOU WIG STAND!"

"YOU COULD BOUNCE A QUARTER OFF THAT WOMAN'S ASS, WHEREAS TODAY IT WOULD SINK... LIKE A PENNY IN LAVA!"

You should rent Macgruber.

I know... you missed it in the theater.

But you can rent it.

And you should.

The Dream of the 90s is Alive in Portland

I couldn't be more excited about Carrie Brownstein & Fred Armisen's sketch show Portlandia. This is the first sketch they've released: it's sort of a thesis statement. It's amazing.

"Portland is where young people go to retire."

"In Portland, you can like... go to a record store and sell your CDs."

Portlandia premiers January 21st at 10:30 on IFC.

(Full disclosure: I work part-time on an IFC show.)
