Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 15: Grevenz

| 1 comment


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 render a man mute with the utterance of one word: Grevenz.

Bullseye

Comedian Dan Mintz has, at 26, already cemented his reputation as a rising star in the LA comedy scene. His distinctive style -- feet planted firmly on stage, his eyes drifting high over the audience's head, the occaisional goofy smile -- is nearly as remarkable as his finely-crafted jokes. He's also written for several television shows, including The Human Giant and The Andy Milonakis Show.

This performance was recorded for The Sound of Young America at the Westside Eclectic theater in Santa Monica, California. Our live comedy series is co-produced by Matt Belknap & aspecialthing.com.

| 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.
