Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 12: Mailman, Give Us Your Mail

| 0 comments


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe try to convince a mailman to let them deliver his mail. They promise not to do any "rifling".

Unless you've been sleeping under a rock, you probably already know that The Sound of Young America will be LIVE in Santa Monica on Saturday night. But maybe you're thinking to yourself, "I'd love to go see Eleni Mandell, Brent Weinbach, and the amazing surprise guest. I'd love to stay to see the standup showcase with Andy Kindler, Jen Kirkman, Jarret Grode and Wyatt Cenac. But I wish one of Jesse's closest relatives would buy my ticket."

Well friend, today is your lucky day.

My mom is going to buy ten Sound of Young America fans a ticket to see The Sound of Young America Live!

Here's how you can win a ticket:

Write Tim the Intern an email at tim @ maximumfun dot org. The subject line should be "TSOYA Live," and the body of the email should have your full name, email, phone number, and something nice about my mom.

We'll pick ten winners first thing Wednesday morning, and post their names here on the blog.

Of course, if you want to buy tickets, they're already on sale. Buy yours right here. And Los Angeleans, see you on Saturday night!

Back when Late Night writer Brian Stack was on the show, we talked a bit about the Stacy bits, but I had a terrible time finding one. Here's a great one. Amy Poehler, of course, portrays Stacy.

Best video ever. Louis just put up several brilliant shorts here.

This whole time you thought it was the "George Bush doesn't care about black people" thing.

Nope.

It's this, about his new single, and why he sampled Daft Punk: "For people that dress super-good, this is the music that we listen to. If you don't like it, you probably can't dress that good."
