Happy New Year Everybody!

As the year winds down so does another thrilling and, at times, hilarious ThesePeople season of comedy.

We leave you with a just (barely) in time for New Year’s Sketch “Midnight Kiss” starring our good friend and founding member Kim “Kat” Cooper.

This year brought a lot of firsts for ThesePeople including our first DVD (on sale on the site now) and our first ever STAGE performance. Not only that, we cranked out 19 more sketches for you to enjoy.

We are looking forward to trying some new things and finally getting around to a pile of scripts we’ve got stored up in 2K10 (spoiler alert some scripts are CAT related) so we hope you’ll stay tuned for more of our general Internet wackiness.

As people sometimes do at the end of a year (or season) we like to look back at the year that has passed and call out our favorite ThesePeople moments. Rather than make a hokey list, we’ll just call out every member’s favorite sketch (luckily there weren’t a lot of repeats)

Matt: Hairy Guyz
Jeff: Help Keep Cat off the Streets
Joel: Guitar Hero for Girls
Nick: Mindblowers
Tim: Matthew and Timothy: Amazing Magicians
Steve: Mindblowers (I guess 2 votes makes “Mindblowers” #1)

So there you have it kids! Go out there for New Year’s, get drunk, be safe, kiss some one, and then blog about it.

See you in the next Decade my loves,

MaTT and ThesePeople

Thanks so much for those hot dogs!

Hey Guys,
How’s it going?

Matt here to share with you the latest ThesePeople creation shot earlier this year in LOVELY Los Angeles in 109 degree weather. This is a sketch we’ve been excited about for a while, but had to wait to get SHOCKTOBERSKETCH IV to be done and buried before its release.

This sketch features our good friend and fellow creator of comedy Dwayne Bartholomew who devotees may remember from “Professor Pals.” This time we took the cameras to his turf and made a little piece of funny we call “Hot Dogs, Anytime.” Once again inspired by a true story… sort of (thanks Ciara). And for “Hot Dogs” we have to throw a huge thanks out to our once again guest editor/special effects guru Joel Slabaugh.

We’re working around the clock to get you one more sketch for 2009, and we’re prepping for 2010 with a mighty fury. So we hope you stay tuned as always.

On the Atom.com/Comedy Central front we’re doing very well in the polls, but voting goes until Friday, so every vote counts. If you haven’t heard or done so already we’d really appreciate you taking a moment to help us out on Twenty-Something Normal Turtle here: http://www.atom.com/showdown. And if you’ve already voted, well thanks! A little bit of that turtle costume belongs to you now.

Also on the ThesePeople Button front we just sent out 70 pins to fans and friends so please keep those requests coming! If you got some of your very own, remember to show them off on our Facebook page.

AND don’t forget!! Nothing makes a better Xmas Gift for the ThesePeople fan in your life than a ThesePeople DVD NOW just $5! Or even better? A ThesePeople T-shirt! Available in most sizes.

Thanks for watching and we’ll talk at ya real soon,
Happy Holidays!
MaTT and ThesePeople

On Atom.com right NOW you have the chance to vote for our Twenty-Something Normal Turtle to win the “Showdown,” which is where they pit two videos against each other, and the winner goes on to appear on Comedy Central (probably at 4:30am after a Reno 911 re-run), and retrieve a modest sum that will pay for that turtle costume.

You should probably vote now!
