"Your Days Of" from Legs For Days’ November show at UCB.
I did 45 seconds of this bit in my Maude audition years ago, and had always wanted to blow it out into a full sketch. Jared Neumark took the script and ran with it beautifully, and Benjamin Apple directed it.
The incomparable Dan Chamberlain.
From Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski. I like this guy.

From broadcity. An early sampling from what I believe will become TV’s most gifable show.
New bit in Funny Or Die’s “The Occasional.”
I don’t have Vine and I don’t intend on getting Vine but here are some ideas for Vines. Please feel free to take them and make them on your own.
-A guy says, “I’ve got it alllllllll figured out.” Cut to: He trips and falls down an endless staircase.
-A guy is in the shower. He looks at a bottle labeled “Exfoliating Soap.” Cut to: A skeleton steps out of the shower.
-A guy is looking in the bathroom mirror, combing his hair. He notices a cowlick sticking up. He combs it down. It pops back up. He smoothes it down with water. It pops back up. He plasters it down with mousse. It pops back up. He cooks it with a straightener, blasts it with a hair dyer, and superglues it down. Finally it stays. He walks outside and gets hit by a truck.
-Close up on a book titled “How To Read.” Cut to wide: A guy is reading the book with a quizzical expression. He’s holding the book upside down.
-A guy says to a girl, “I’d love to see you again sometime.” The girl says, “Definitely.” Cut to: The girl walks away into an endless wheat field. Cut to: The guy watching her go, smiling and waving. Cut to: The girl keeps walking. She’s in the middle distance now. Cut to: The guy still smiling and waving. Cut to: The girl is just a speck on the horizon. She disappears. Cut to: The guy is still smiling and waving, but perhaps we catch a glimpse of something else in his expression.
A sketch from the new UCB NY Maude team Absolutely: Written by John Trowbridge, starring Ashley Brooke Roberts and Dom Manzolillo, and directed by me.
All of Shaun Micallef’s brilliant tilted room sketches.
My mom just texted me to let me know that a program called Showbiz Tonight (actual title) did a segment on that Miley Cyrus video I wrote back in 2008. They call it a “dramatic, scary warning” which is how I describe most of my comedy videos. I’ve never watched Showbiz Tonight but it appears to be a show about people who entered into some kind of Devil’s Bargain wherein they were granted physical beauty but at the price of having to talk at length about the most asinine topics imaginable. Godspeed to them all.
