Itâ€™s Joe Vargas THATâ€™S who it is, DJ, turned actor, turned mermaid. You may remember Joe from his time spent in the huge group shot formerly on the front page of the site and supporting roles in â€œI Donâ€™t Want to Be Jesus,â€ and â€œOver the Thumb.â€ Now see him earn his keep in his first speaking role as â€˜Connerâ€™ in, â€œPARTING GIFTS!â€ â€œParting Giftsâ€ tells the story of three friends finding out more than they wanted to know about a recently deceased friend while cleaning out his apartment.
In addition to being Joe’s on air premeire, this sketch also could have not been made without the help of Paul, my brother, turned cameraman, turned father (not mine some one else’s.) Paul did an excellent job of keeping us moving and telling us when we sucked and had to do a take again.
Joe was a pleasure to work with and it was great to finally give him a part in a sketch, I think he did an awesome job and hopefully you will too.
Hereâ€™s what Joe said about his experience with ThesePeople, â€œThesePeople have about as much talent as they do budgetâ€¦0. I wouldnâ€™t work with them again, even if they did pay me. I hate that theyâ€™re my friends.â€
So there you have it! Check out â€œParting Giftsâ€ with our new friend Joe, and if you guys all hate him weâ€™ll do what they did on LOST with their poorly received new characters and bury him aliveâ€¦for real. (Spoiler Alert!)
Good news for all of you ThesePeople Fans too! Weâ€™ve got 4 more sketches that are already shot just waiting to be edited and slowly released over the next couple of months. So I hope you were planning on laughing this Summer!
