great mockery of beer commercials

Before this sketch even began playing, I was laughing in my seat.

Honestly, if Coors Light thought it would increase their market share, and buying the rights to the video wasn’t prohibitively expensive, they would do it.

Nearly perfect three-line scene

From Death By Roo Roo, the best improv group I’ve ever seen, comes this incredible three-line scene:

From an improv perspective, there’s nothing about this scene that isn’t amazing.  I will never, ever, be as funny as John Gemberling.

Chris Gethard is on television for real

Chris Gethard is one of the best improvisers (and improv instructors) in New York City (my buddy Jesse Lee is a disciple).  After some ESPN commercials, he’s finally getting his shot at a TV show.  Big Lake premiers tonight at 10 pm on Comedy Central.  It also stars Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell (Dr. Spaceman on 30 Rock), and will no doubt be hilarious.  In the meantime, congrats, Gethard, for being all over The Onion’s advertising banners this morning:

In other news, is that really Horatio Sanz!?!?

Death By Roo Roo Videos

Death By Roo Roo is probably the best improv group in New York City right now.  Neil Casey and John Gemberling are two of their best members (although picking your favorite DBRR cast member is like picking your favorite part of an orgasm).

It’s good to see improvisers getting wider attention, so I’m chipping in my two cents and linking to two very funny video starring these two guys:
