ThesePeople kick off season 5, comedy revolution.
2010 Feb 10
HAPPY NEW YEAR! (I know itâ€™s February)
How has everyone been? Staying warm? Itâ€™s a blizzard here in Detroit (and other places), so itâ€™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 donâ€™t have a new video, us.
Todayâ€™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 â€œBuddy Escortsâ€ and â€œMy, Robot”). It tells the touching tale of a manâ€™s struggle with addiction. And really thereâ€™s no better time than Valentineâ€™s Day to release a sketch called â€œSex Addictâ€. Will its title do it the same favor that â€œHomemade Pornâ€ has done for â€œHomemade Pornâ€? Only time will tell.
Please enjoy â€œSex Addictâ€ on our site, facebook and on our YouTube page and subscribe if you havenâ€™t yet, whatâ€™re you waiting for? Itâ€™s free.
Oh and one little quick note on the aforementioned â€œHomemade Pornâ€, 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 troupeâ€™s legacy… prove us wrong â€œSex Addictâ€.
As always fans and friends, keep those pin requests coming in, weâ€™ll send them out when the snow stops, and also donâ€™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 Valentineâ€™s Day,
MaTT and ThesePeople
