HAPPY NEW YEAR! (I know it’s February)

How has everyone been? Staying warm? It’s a blizzard here in Detroit (and other places), so it’s the perfect day to cuddle up with your sweetheart and watch some Internet sketch comedy from your favorite sketch comedy troupe, or if they don’t have a new video, us.

Today’s offering opens our 5th season of videos and was shot in L.A. with the West Coast unit of ThesePeople, myself (MaTT), Joel Slabaugh and Ryan Mason (star of “Buddy Escorts” and “My, Robot”). It tells the touching tale of a man’s struggle with addiction. And really there’s no better time than Valentine’s Day to release a sketch called “Sex Addict”. Will its title do it the same favor that “Homemade Porn” has done for “Homemade Porn”? Only time will tell.

Please enjoy “Sex Addict” on our site, facebook and on our YouTube page and subscribe if you haven’t yet, what’re you waiting for? It’s free.

Oh and one little quick note on the aforementioned “Homemade Porn”, it is now the 20th most viewed comedy video of ALL TIME on YouTube, and has over 27,000,000 views. I guess that will be this troupe’s legacy… prove us wrong “Sex Addict”.

As always fans and friends, keep those pin requests coming in, we’ll send them out when the snow stops, and also don’t forget to get a ThesePeople DVD full of our favorite sketches and tons of extras for the true ThesePeople completist.

Enjoy the new sketch! Sorry for the initial new sketch gap, but stay tuned for more work from the L.A. and Detroit ThesePeople crews! 2 more sketches are in postproduction as we speak.

Happy Valentine’s Day,
MaTT and ThesePeople
