And Now... Codeword Secret

Well, a trailer, anyway. And hosted by MSN Video — which naturally means it’s buggy, and may or may not be visible on a Mac (for my part, I have yet to get the audio to work properly). Gotta love Microsoft...

In any case, if you look closely, you can see me (in my role as a CIA agent extra) ducking in panic as Johnny Newman swings his “ray gun” around wildly. And if you’re particularly intrigued, you can check out some behind-the-scenes photos here.

As I mentioned before, the show will be premiering at the New York Television Festival on Friday, September 7th (and showing again on Saturday, September 8th). The comedy troupe (comprising several members of the Codeword Secret team) will be performing on Thursday, September 6th. And as if that weren’t incentive enough, all the tickets are free! So if you’re in the area, be sure to give it a look!

David Beckham in LA

Some friends just won a chance to perform at the New York Television Festival in September, as part of the PGP-NYTVF Comedy Talent Search. This is part of the same crew that put together the brilliant Buddy Jackson online sitcom, as well as the pilot for Codeword Secret (on which yours truly was the production designer) — which will also be showing at the festival (Friday, September 8th 7th, at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 9th 8th, at 10:30 p.m., in case anyone’s going to be in New York that weekend).

I just figured it might be fun to give you all a look at their winning audition video. Enjoy!

Edit: I corrected the dates above, and should also point out that the Comedy Talent Search final performance will be the evening of Thursday, September 6th.

Wackity-Schmackity Doo!

Hey, Patton’s new CD just arrived!

Only listened to half of it so far, but it does not disappoint. Damn, this guy’s funny — his Brian Dennehy story almost made me crash my car.

Go buy it. Right now. (But be warned — don’t expect Remy from Ratatouille or Spence from The King of Queens.)
