Seeso: The UCB Show & my new standup special “Besser Breaks the Record”

Besser Breaks the Record” is my newest comedy special where I attempt tp break every comedy record in the world in an effort to defeat my comedy nemesis Ivan Krushnev Jr.

Now available in its audio version on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
The CD will be available in all retail stores and the UCB STORE on-line, on 3/25

The full video special is now available on plus…
The UCB Show is a variety show series (8 episodes) we shot at the new UCB Theater on Sunset in Hollywood. It is literally the best acts on stage at our theater in 2015. See the stars of tomorrow and some of your long time favorite UCBers too (James Adomian, Andy Daly, Betsy Sodaro, Scott Aukerman, Seth Morris, need I go on?).

Besser Breaks the Record is a standup special which I can’t wait for everybody to see. It’s my first special that I’ve really focused on since Woo Pig Sooie wasn’t a planned album and The 6 Most Important Sets in the History of Standup was a compilation of performances.

Beyond my projects Seeso will have exclusive rights to both Monty Python and Kids in the Hall, and now most of the 3 season of the UCB sketch show from Comedy Central! Wow, that’s worth the price of adimission right there. Speaking of price it’s only $3.99 a month!

Seeso is has become available on more and more platforms like Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Prime, and soon coming to new Apple TVs.

Hotwives of Orlando on HULU now

This is a really funny web series that I’m in. I’m the husband of one of the hot wives (my wife, Danielle Schneider!)…

Watch on HULU now

A parody of one of the most popular franchises in reality television, “The Hotwives of Orlando,” takes you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives livin’ large in Central Florida’s sexiest city, Orlando. The show follows a cast of ladies as they fight over pretty much everything except for their love of shoes, plastic surgery, and the pursuit of spending all of their husbands’ money. The first season focuses on Tawny St. John (portrayed by Casey Wilson), Shauna Maducci (Danielle Schneider), Phe Phe Reed (Tymberlee Hill), Veronica Von Vandervon (Andrea Savage), Crystal Simmons (Angela Kinsey), and Amanda Simmons (Kristen Schaal).
