Our pals at Sketchfest Seattle are now taking applications for performers. It's a really great festival, in a really great town, and highly recommended.
Which reminds me... The Sound of Young America is proud to be a sponsor of This year's Sketchfest NYC. We're still working on getting the names of events into the live shows section of the sidebar, but there it is down there as "New York, NY." It runs the same dates as MaxFunCon, so I won't be there, but those guys always put together an amazing festival.
Here's what Dana says about the show getting canceled, and about his career now:
The two things that can hurt you are if you need money or if you need fame. Those are the things that can be your Achilles heel. But if you don’t need money and you don’t need fame, then you’re free. You see how that works?
The Lonely Island definitely win the award for best white urban music parodists. They have a real point of view, the songs are consistently enjoyable, and they're very funny. Race or broad stereotypes are never the targets. Kudos to them.
Mike Clattenburg is the creator of the Canadian sitcom The Trailer Park Boys. It follows two friends, the scheming Julian (left) and the bumbling Ricky (right), as they plan petty crimes, grow dope, drink, and seek counsel from their wise (but possibly developmentally disabled) neighbor Bubbles (center). It's a surprisingly sweet and spectacularly profane look at life in the maritime provinces of Canada.
I very rarely post trailers and previews on this blog, but this one had me laughing, hard. I'm so excited that Chevy Chase is going to get a chance to flex his prodigious comedy muscles again, and Joel McHale is no slouch, either.
