"Dad Jokes"
March 3rd, 2014

This is easily one of my top three favorite sketches I’ve written in my two and a half years on Maude Night.

Jon gives an absolutely incredible performance and nailed it from moment one. The support work from Lisa, Kelly, and Dan adds a ton and it’s super fun to listen to the audience’s reactions.

Proud of this little guy. Give it a watch please.

Surprising, genuine, sweet. Trusting the moment. Love this.

I really loved this sketch. LIKE LOVE LOVED

Top notch sketch! Very enjoyable! 

Fucking fantastic.

I’m Too Fragile For This: “Cool Downz”

A new episode! The idea for this one came from a pitch by Comedy wunderkind Alyssa Stonoha.

This is my favorite episode in a while.  I forgot we even shot this so it was a happy surprise from Tom Levin.  

Enjoy the cool weather, folks.  It’s creepin up on CoolDownz® time.

acting.

When I was in acting school, we had a guest seminar with Gena Rowlands.  She told a story about getting her start, and how frustrated she would get with the auditioning process.  

She said (I’m paraphrasing) that she remembered asking a director, “how can you possibly tell what an actor has to offer?  How can you gage their ability from one scene or one monologue after only being in the room with them for 5 minutes?”  And the director responded, “I can’t tell after 5 minutes.  I can tell 5 seconds after they walk through the door.”  

I think about that all the time.

Our UCB Close Up this week is the extraordinary Connor Ratliff!

Connor Ratliff is a very funny guy, but more than that, he’s a dreamer. This one time presidential hopeful and future Olympic Gold Medalist (Brazil 2016, get ready!) has really made…

CATHRYN MUDON

We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? We talked to Cathryn Mudon about Chris Gethard, ASSSSCAT, and doing experimental shows with Dreadnought.

LW: How’d you find UCB?

CM: I had some friends visiting in town and they were doing touristy things. I was working at J.Crew at the time and they were like, “Come meet us at this show! You camp outside on the sidewalk, we’ll get Chipotle and sit there for like three hours, but it’s super fun!” I was in such a grumpy mood after my shift and the last thing I wanted to do was go sit on the sidewalk, but I went.

That was May. I remember it because it was Fleet Week of 2007 and there were a bunch of naval officers everywhere. So we went and camped out for ASSSSCAT and got into the 9:30 show.

I had a lovely time chatting with Lauren Walters and Erin O’Brien of Magic Buttons for this interview.  God bless them both for transcribing my wild and wooly ramblings.

I’ll be honest, I was HOPING there would be GIFs.

(I rarely do anything anymore without secretly, deep down, thinking “I hope someone makes a GIF of this.” Sad but true.)

This was one of my favorite episodes I’ve ever seen of any show, period.  I thought it was brilliant.  It did not hurt that MY GREAT FRIEND WAS ALSO IN IT!

Audiobooks Read By You: Like reading a book without actually reading a book by reading a book & recording it in a studio. 

When you just don’t feel like reading a book, listen to a book…that you read.
