In-House with Late Night TV Fan

Off the Wire’s new host gets some advice from Late Night TV’s biggest fan.

//
Wrote and acted as this character, Jimmy Jay Johnny, Late Night TV Fan. Basic deal is this was our first episode with new host, Danny New. With the big changes happening at the time in late night (Jimmy Fallon taking over the Tonight Show and Seth Meyers getting Late Night), this tried to capture all that buzz. Wish I could’ve rewritten this once more to make it a bit more accessible and punch up some of the jokes, but I like how it turned out.

Foster Kid

The origin story of the hero this city deserves, but not the one it needs for a few years.

//
Who doesn’t want to play an uptight foster father?

Dead Boy

The origin story of everyone’s favorite spider themed superhero.

//
Inadvertently ended up acting in this one. Cuz who doesn’t wanna be Spider-man? (I could totally play Miles Morales.)

Plane Old Racism

Before take off, things get a little racy for the three people sitting these seats.
(It starts 23 seconds in).

//
Wrote and acted in this live sketch, performed on Off The Wire (University of Miami’s late night comedy show). You’ll see me posting from Off The Wire a lot.

after a while of not using it.
So, allow me to spam your dash with videos I’ve written/acted in/worked on over the last couple months.

Pacing-Back-And-Forth-In-Introspection

Some conclusions:

  • I connect better to audiences than I do to individual human beings.
  • I was born into a family of five; there was an audience before me from the moment I was born.
  • I am a communicator to mass audiences; so isn’t it worth it to become the best communicator that I can be?

In a program right now that’s asking some deep questions of me, so these are some things that are coming out of these self-discussions. I’m slowly starting to connect the dots in the bigger picture of my life.

Also, a confirmation of the above points: the fact that I had to post this onto tumblr. (not a personal journal, not to just those close to me, but to post it on the old world wide web.)

I’m gonna cry at the end of this movie. Gonna reread the book before this comes out.

Let’s buckle down.
Let’s buckle up.
Quit fooling around
And show your stuff.
Let’s put out productivity
And increase our activity.
Let’s say no the voices that tell us we can’t
And let’s make the choices of a worker ant
Let’s get ready
Then go ahead anyway
Let’s hold steady
Because today is our day.
