Welcome back Mike!

I'd like to mention that I finally watched an episode of The Office (USA) and it is not very good. I prefer Powerloafing office comedy.

And thanks for walking me to my cab. You're a sweetheart. Tee hee.

I really liked US version of 'The Office'. I've only seen one episode of the original. It was a little more absurd that the american version, but both are funny damnit.


P.S. Mike do you mind if I tell everyone I know that I'm friends with an emmy award winning writer, say you're coming over for thanksgiving, and hire a homeless person to play you?

That's exactly how I would have written it. Absolute chaos, death, and destruction. Thank you for sharing that with us. I wish you'd keep us in the loop a little more with your current projects so we could back you up. I'm surprised more people aren't shitting themselves over having an unreleased Mr. Show sketch ending released here. What the fuck?!? I guess we're just bitter that Bob and/or David has never made a visit.

We almost didn't meet. I got there at midnight and spent several hours standing on a walkway to the side. I thought I'd be mulling around in the lobby every once in a while at such a long show, but it ended up being so great I couldn't take my eyes off of it. There was barely even enough time to do drugs in the back room, that's how solid the show was. I forgot what you said you looked like, except that you'd be wearing a hat with something on it. I scanned the crowd and saw three hat wearers and tried to determine which one looked the most Canadian. Then it occurred to me that wearing hats indoors is rude, and hence not very Canadian in the first place, so I just watched the show. There was barely a dead minute, and at least 80% of the audience stayed for the whole thing. About 5am I moved over to the other side of the room near the restrooms where I could pace around to stay awake. Graham Elwood interrupted the show to announce that someone’s cab arrived and everyone thought he was doing a bit. Then a guy wearing a hat stood up, said it was his cab, and left the room, as everyone laughed. In the hallway I heard the guy say to Graham, "I flew out from Ottawa for the show," and I remembered. Our historic interaction lasted about 45 seconds, and I don't remember anything we said because we were both punchy. I just remembered it was foggy and very eerie outside the UCB Theater on that early morning, and I'm glad that Agent_PUNT didn't pull out a sword and behead me. Whatta great guy.

I was buying it up until that point. There is always time to do drugs in the back room; I don't care if you're shooting a porno, making Mac and Cheese, planning a nuclear counterstrike on Mother Russia at Defcon 5, or watching Billy Crystal ritually disembowel himself after a tea ceremony in feudal Japan...there is always time to do drugs in the back room. Always.

I'll probably post sometime in the next week again. You guys were asking about what I've been working on lately and I did a couple interesting things. I also wanted to follow up on a couple new shows and stuff I've recently checked out.

I won't stop until this thread has at least 10,000 views, even if I have view it that many times myself.

Yes, good point. Of course, I made time, but I had to really be efficient in my drug taking. If I a comic was doing a bit I'd heard already, I'd slip back for a quick woohaa, but then another comic would jump in and start messing with the one on stage, and I'd have to cut it short and go watch. This was such a good show it was hard to stay high during it. I can't believe they pulled off an 8 hour show that was tight. Of course a pro like me could maintain a buzz, but I really had to be organized.

First off, this is going on my resume.

secondly off, I remember every word that was spoken. The first 30 seconds off the interaction was just you blabbing on about how awesome and funny I was. And I was just standing there waiting for my turn to talk about how funny I was going to be next week. Then I pulled out a sword and beheaded you. And you called David Cross and asked him to remove your name from the MR. Show writers credits and put my name in its place.

Now does that ring a bell?

That story is bullshit, you wouldn't behead him with a sword, you would kill him with your kung fus.

Hey, look what I did!



It took me half a day. I bet if you dug up Einstein and gave him the software, he would NOT be able to figure out how to do the above animated gif in half a day. In your face, Einstein!

Some other stuff I did:

Cheap Seats:
I helped on their new season. It's one of the funniest shows on TV, and you don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy it. Jason and Randy put together a helluva solid show, and get the best people in comedy to do guest spots and cameos, including David this season doing a hilarious diet guru character. Catch any episode you can, they're all good:

http://www.cheapseats.tv/

Blue Collar TV
I was brought on for 13 weeks to help write redneck sketches. I had a good time and learned how to skin a possum but, unfortunately, the show has been pulled from the schedule. I think we went over the heads of the American public. We took a chance doing sophisticated urbane comedy, and unfortunately it hasn't caught on. There is hope though, and it's grass roots communities like this one that can help make a difference. If we can all pull together and get the word out, maybe we can bring back Blue Collar Comedy® and make comedy safe for rednecks again. I'm not making this plea for myself, though I do need the money, I'm making this plea for poor Larry. He's living in his van, and he doesn't even have the job at the cable company anymore. Anyway, sorry to bring this grave news about BCTV to BUTM. Your love of Blue Collar Comedy® and its rednecks has been expressed in countless threads on this site. I'm sure you're all devastated and need time to make sense of it all. But, then gather yourself and go to the Warner bros site and tell them they gotta bring it back or you will dynamite something.* (Note: make sure to sound like a redneck)

http://thewb.warnerbros.com/web/show...ompage=sitemap

Powerloafing
Hey, remember that? The site has been totally redone, partially as a result of all the technical problems the BUTM'ers were experiencing. I blew all my redneck money getting ready for the big roll out starting in January. We also shot a new episode. You can see a sneak rough cut Quicktime of it here only until the end of the year:

http://powerloafing.com/inscrtyoficer.mov

You will hopefully be seeing me on the web a lot next year promoting powerloafing like a religion. Thanks for being the petri dish for it.

Also, happy holidays to all of you and that ass crank Bill O'Reilly, and may the new year not suck as bad as the last one.


* Joke.

I never even got to meet him. Blue collar was shot in Atlanta, but written in LA, and I wasn't on the live shoot. Larry didn't do any taped sketches that year because he was busy touring the country playing arenas pulling in a reported half a million per weekend. (approximately $500 per Get-R-Done uttered) He's in the rare position of having to take a pay cut to do a TV show. I did get to meet the other two rednecks and they were super nice guys.
