True Detective: Yellow King Theory (by Big Meeting)

Really interesting theory! Warning, spoilers if you’re not caught up with the show.

This makes a lot of sense, but I’d be disappointed if this is how it all shakes out.

This is very, very funny.

Jesus this is funny.

Upright Citizens Brigade Writes Its Book on Improv

anthonyking:

“It’s joke heavy, fast and funny,” said TJ Jagodowski…”

Finally someone has said it (again)! UCBT IS ALL ABOUT THE JOKES. Level 101: Jokes. Level 201: Better Jokes. Level 301: Jokes! Jokes! Jokes! Level 401: Harold.

"Mr. Napier argues that great improvisation derives from a more childlike part of the psyche, not the muscle memory needed for ballet or driving. “You have to tap into the part of you that plays,” he said, “and the part of you that’s always thinking and adhering to rules and hierarchy and constructs and order and logic is not the part that an audience enjoys.”

Again! Finally someone says it! There is nothing an audience likes more than watching children play. It’s riveting! That’s why all across this great country, theatre after theatre is filled with audiences watching small children play together. Adults using that childlike spirit of play in concert with their more mature abilities of logic and humor is BORING.

Also… I love “Improvise.” But it’s full of rules.

On Doing an Album

andysandfordcomedy:

I’ve spent the majority of this year focusing on making my first solo album. If it sounds weird that I say “solo,” that’s because it is kinda weird. I am on 2 other albums where I am one of four dudes known as the Beards of Comedy… it was a really fun tour my friends and I did for 5 years. Anyway, I was on a mission to record an album that I could be proud of before the end of the year. I recorded that album last month, and it is in the process of being mixed. I put a lot of effort into it, and was very happy with he recording (it is called “Me The Whole Time” and will be released on New Wave Records). Luckily, because I had done 1/4th of an album twice, I had learned a few things which saved me from fucking it up. Mostly I learned what NOT to do (again), and am blogging it here in hopes that maybe someone else will benefit.

Why We’re Doing This (And Why We’re Not)

thechrisgethardshow:

I want to thank everyone who’s been so kind in the wake of our announcement about this Comedy Central opportunity. The messages, comments, blog posts, and emails have all been insanely nice and it means the world to me to see them all. It’s very motivating and makes me want to get this thing right even more than I already did.

With that in mind, I feel like I wanted to just put my motivation out there publicly. This is for a few reasons. First off, I’ve always felt so strongly connected to the fans of this show and feel like they are a huge part of the process. People are already posting suggestions for the pilot on our message board over at the main web site unsolicited, and I think that’s the best. I read them all. Also, I think it’s interesting to let you guys see my thought process - I have a chip on my shoulder and often think about why and this should show that off. Mostly though, I feel like I put this out into the world it will force me to live and die by it a bit more - declare something publicly and you are accountable for it.

So why are we doing this? Why take this thing we love and change it? What motivates that?

Hey everybody,

As you might have assumed by now, things are getting pretty wild at TCGS headquarters on the top floor of the Chrysler Building. With the announcement of our Comedy Central pilot, every element of our show is pushing it into high gear to make our borderline
