“Uh, Prime, Wheelie’s been helpin us out for a little while now. We use him as a decoy a lot.”

“Don’t you love me!” Funny enough for repeat viewings. You may recognize Ptolemy (Gibler) from many TV commercials, and as Bono in the Improv Everywhere U2 prank.

Video Game Awards Tonight

December 13, 2006

Spike TV loves the UCB this year. Tonght’s Video Game Awards feature two comedy shorts starring UCB mainstay John Gemberling and directed by yours truly. UCB Harold-teamer John Gabrus is a staff writer for the show, and comics Brian Berrebbi and Nick Kroll play costumed gamer nerds.

Joystiq.com had a “liveblogger” at the VGA taping last Fri. Here’s what he had to say about my “MoCap” segments:

9:42: Mocap skit with balls. A chubby dude in a blue suit covered in giant balls plays “the bitch” in Saint’s Row. Nice.
10:53: [update 7] More motion capture skit action. This stuff has been the best of the show so far, by far. Someone might be pitching Mocap: The Show to Fox already. Sarah Silverman comes out… Besides the mocap dude, she’s the funniest thing in the show so far as well. (Full link)

Leeroy goes Viral

December 13, 2006

The Live Action Leeroy virals have truly gone viral, including a front-page mention at worldofwarcraft.com:

Thanks to Mark Frauenfelder for blogging them (along with some kind words) at boingboing.net

They even made it to the front page of Digg.

Goddammit Leeroy

December 11, 2006

This is one of three promos I directed for Spike TV’s Video Game Awards. The others are

Elevator
Stacy’s Birthday

These were written by the hilarious Johnathan Gabrus, who also stars as Leeroy. That’s Brian Fountain as the unfortunate client and Andre du Bouchet as the group leader.

Many thanks to Kara Klenk and Ethan Rom (as Stacy and Stan), Christine Lu, Adam Wade, Kari Kim, Val Bontrager, and Chris DeLuka for all their help.

IE Agents Jump

Last Sunday, 80 Improv Everywhere agents infiltrated a New York City Best Buy store dressed in blue polo shirts and khaki pants. I shot video with a hidden camera and encountered the police. Read the official mission report at Improv Everywhere's site.

Sexual Intercourse FTW

April 25, 2006

We got picked up as a Primetime Show at 102, with 96 votes netting us 3rd place. Not bad, considering that slots 1 and 2 were pretty much a lock.

Watch it! (safe for work; does not contain “hardcore penetration” as indicated)

In addition to the worthy “Cakey” and “Puppet Rapist,” we’re sharing the spotlight this month with the well-writen, hilariously acted “Incredible Drunk” and the inexplicable “28 Day Slater.”
