In Search of Miracle Man – Adult Swim infomercial parody

Rich Fulcher and I have been in search of the Miracle Man for a long time.
We made a special with Abominable Pictures that aired on Adult Swim.

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).

Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual

Ladies and gentlemen, after seven years, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, (edited by Joe Wengert) and I have finally finished writing the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual. If I know anything about improv it is in this book. This is now the text book for the UCB Training Center. We wrote it so that someone who has never seen an improv show nor taken a class could still learn to improvise by reading this book.
It’s only $25 and for now it is only available at our website ucbtheatre.com store.
If you read it and it works for you please help us spread the word, and give me some feedback if you have any questions. We’d rather you buy it off our site but it is also available on Amazon. If you do buy it on Amazon please give us a review. Thanks!

“Woo Pig Sooie: Comedy for Atheists” available for dowload

I recorded this one man show at the end of the Bush era, but unfortunately, I think all these issues still apply. Separation of church and state?! That doesn’t sound funny! Relax, even the Bible has funny stuff about masturbation.
Press the button to the right for atheist hilarity and maybe some insight into my rants on improv4humans->>>>>>>>
