What up Fun Guys and Gals?
Hope those of you over 21 are recovering from bathing in green beer last night and are ready to get your laugh on. For you kids out there, I hope you wore plenty of green and no one pinched you.
Today ThesePeople are happy to share with you our latest sketch. A little gem we call â€œFun Gus.â€ â€œFun Gusâ€ takes place at a party of suspiciously good looking people all abuzz over the arrival of a VERY special guest, everyoneâ€™s best friend, Fun Gus.
This sketch has one of our biggest casts to date, and features a lot of familiar ThesePeople faces as well as some new ones. A huge thanks to all of our friends who came to help out. They are too many to list, but we very much appreciate your help. As well as the help of our fabulous post production team, Editor Steve, Sound Engineer Andrew, and Matt R. on the background music.
Please join the party and watch the sketch on our beloved Website OR our equally beloved YouTube page. For every thousand views YouTube gives us a shiny 50-cent piece!
As you guys know we always strive to keep you up to date with ALL of our goings on, so Iâ€™d like to mention once again how good our â€œOperation Give Pins to EVERYONEâ€ is going. As you can see from the map on our homepage, we are in well over half the states, but certain states are driving me nuts because they create big glaring holes in an otherwise coated countryside.
So this week we call out YOU Iowa and Louisiana. Iowa, for shame, you are our Midwestern brethren, youâ€™re telling me no one in that whole state is watching â€œFull Throttle Douche Bottleâ€ over and over? And Louisiana!? Youâ€™re like party town USA and the most haunted state in America (right?) youâ€™re telling me no one like â€œDead Girls Gone Wildâ€ and â€œGhostelâ€ enough to get some free pins? Come on you guys, step up and be counted. Make your country proud.
And now on to the HUGEST news… EVER… this very weekend those ThesePeople members NOT in Chicago are heading to Chicago to do commentaries for the ALL NEW THESEPEOPLE DVD! Cover art for the DVD is currently in production, and bonus features are being put together. Itâ€™s going to be large and in charge.
When can you get this DVD you ask?
Why May 2nd at The Belmont in Hamtramck, MI. The first ever LIVE ThesePeople event featuring support from some of our favorite Detroit musicians including Millions of Brazilians. It will be a night of live comedy, rock and roll, old sketches, new sketches AND a dance party. Plus, your chance to be in a ThesePeople sketch. What more could you ask for!?
DVDs will be available on the site the day AFTER the show for you non-Metro-Detroiters.
Stay tuned to ThesePeopleComedy.com for more details. Questions or comments? Contact us on our website.
Next sketch drops April 1st… why, thatâ€™s April Foolâ€™s Day! What a coincidence.
