Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 17: Run Over My Hand.

| 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 man to run them over. It soon becomes clear that he'll have none of it.

David Letterman on Tom Snyder

| 0 comments

This is from Snyder's Worldwide Pants-produced "Late Late Show," circa 1995. A wide-ranging interview -- Snyder cracks Letterman's surface just a bit, gets him to talk about his early days in broadcasting and to be surprisingly frank about his critics in the media.

SkyMaul CEO Jerry Ponda was on hand, in his trademark black turtleneck, and a variety of friends were there too. Luckily for America, Google recorded the whole operation, which you can watch above.

Scott & BJ's New FOX Sketch Pilot: The Right Now! Show

| 0 comments

Long-time TSOYA pals Scott Aukerman and BJ Porter are at it again, dropping a news-bomb on all of us.

They've announced, via aspecialthing.com, that they're filming a new pilot for FOX's late night division. The series will be primarily sketch, but will also include lots of other miscellany and flim-flam from the broader comedy (and alterna-comedy) world.

The cast includes Maria Bamford, Paul Rust, Mike O'Connell, James Adomian, Ian Edwards, Casey Wilson, Natasha Leggero, and a rotating cast of wonderful guests. They've already spilled the beans that Zach Galifianakis will guest in their pilot, which will shoot in LA in mid-September.

Keep your eyes on this folks, because with this talent, this is VERY exciting stuff.
