Updates from ThesePeople

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

It’s a lazy Saturday around these(People) parts. Hopefully where ever you are you’re taking advantage of the afternoon.

Thursday this week our first ever DVD went on sale right here on the site. If you were at our live show you already got one (or three) for yourself, but now everyone else (in the United States, for now) has a chance. Here are the details and order information! Support your indie sketch comedians, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son. At the very least you’d be helping us pay for that human-sized turtle costume.

In other post-live show news, Matt held up our end of the bargain and delivered the proceeds of our 50/50 raffle to the Michigan Humane Society. The woman at the office was extremely happy with the donation and seemed very interested in our work. Hopefully she never watches the end of Help Keep Cats Off The Streets.

If you can’t afford a DVD, we’ll still send you some pins if you just ask. España, Portugal, Sweden and Indonesia have been added to our great map.

Finally, this week ThesePeople received one of the Internet’s highest honors… being remixed by a random YouTube user. It’s weird and wonderful, see for yourself…

Some Cats Have It All

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Well Cats and Kittens,

Weekends don’t get much bigger than this past one.

The first ever LIVE ThesePeople event. I really don’t think it could have gone any better. We packed the Belmont, we projected some classic sketches, we remembered all of our lines… it was great. PLUS we had amazing support from Elle and the Fonts, Lightning Love, and Millions of Brazilians. Then just as predicted DJ Grand Dad Crunk played “Pogo” by Digitalism (my most played song on my iTunes) I shouted the words like a drunken idiot and it was fantastic. Oh yeah, and there was confetti EVERYWHERE.

For those of you who made it out, thank you SO MUCH, it’d of been nothing without you and we hope to do it again real soon. For those of you who couldn’t be there, get some folks together, secure a venue and we’ll come to your town. We have a box of DVDs to sell and there are still lots of states I haven’t Karaoked in.

In the next couple weeks we’ll be posting pictures and some of the live material from the show so it can feel like you were there, and TODAY we’re sharing with you the NEW SKETCH we debuted on that special night.

“Keep Cats Off the Streets.” This sketch was made because we donated the results of the raffle we had at the live show to the Michigan Humane Society, however we feel the sketch stands up pretty good in any context, and is my favorite thing we’ve made in a while. I hope you love it.

Check it out here:

Speaking of DVDs… we have them for sale now! Right here on the site! $10 a piece for a DVD loaded with our favorite sketches, commentary, outtakes, interviews, all sorts of cool crap!!! And every DVD order comes with a FREE ThesePeople sticker which is also totally awesome.

And we’ve got Tshirts for sale too! Soon we’ll have pictures of all these things up on the site so you know what you’re buying. The DVD artwork is super sexy though, you’re going to love it.

Enjoy the new sketch and thanks for making us want to make videos.

Happy Mother’s Day,
MaTT and ThesePeople
