Thanks so much for those hot dogs!

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

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

Have you received pins and/or stickers from us? We’re getting sooo close to having pins sent to every state in the Union, and more and more are being sent internationally every week.

Check out the latest maps:

We’d love some photos of you rocking the pins, or whatever you’ve done with the stickers. You can add them to our Facebook page or send them to pics {at} thesepeoplecomedy {dot} com.

And if you don’t have any of your very own all you need to do is drop us a line with your address and we’ll post, post-haste. We’ll never sell your address or send you spam. We really have nothing else to offer you but funny videos and free pins (oh, and a DVD).

Hey Every-Body!

Hope you’ve all been enjoying our latest sketch, “Joel’s Addiction,” but we’re here today with a BIGGER message…

We’ve been talking about it, but now the time has come to invite you to it.

The first ever, live ThesePeople event! The ThesePeople DVD Release party.

On May 2nd ThesePeople will be releasing their Best Of… Vol. 1 DVD upon the world (loaded with extras), and we wanted to do it in style.

At 9pm, May 2nd, we are taking over The Belmont bar in Hamtramck, MI, and we’re bringing our favorite Detroit Bands and DJ with us.

ThesePeople will be doing live comedy throughout the night while you’re treated to live performances from:

When the bands stop the music doesn’t.

DJ Grand Dad Crunk will be spinning indie rock awesomeness ’til they kick us out of the bar, so bring your dancing shoes.

PLUS we’ll be having a 50/50 raffle throughout the night with your chance to win some fabulous ThesePeople prizes. (All proceeds from the raffle will be going to the Humane Society.)

This is a HUGE deal for us and we’re planning a lot of fun surprises so I hope you all can make it. For our out of state fans, start driving now! This could be your only chance to meet/assassinate us!

Cover is $5 for 21+, $7 for 18 and up

DVDs will be on sale at the show for $5! Get them there before we jack the price up to $10 on the site starting May 4th.

ThesePuppets

What is up Puppet People?

Happy April Fool’s Day! This year the joke is on/for you, five hilarious minutes of something a little bit different from ThesePeople. Presenting our first outing with the latest ThesePeople investment, four wonderful Muppet-like puppets.

Watch as they star in “There’s a Monster in my Sublet,” a story that could easily be the premise for a DreamWorks animated film, but instead is a ThesePeople sketch.

Hit by these hard economic times Scotty’s parents sublet the space under his bed… to a real MONSTER! Hijinx ensue. And keep this one from the kids, there’s some naughty language.

You can watch all the puppet magic here or of course on our YouTube page where it’d be super cool if you subscribed to us! We’re almost to 10,000 subscribers. I think YouTube sends you a hat if you break that barrier.

And don’t forget! We’re giving out free pins like crazy! Just send us your address and we’ll send you some pins, no matter where you live! We’ve got cool pins for our cool fans and we’ll do what it takes to get them to you. We even bought a ThesePeople return address stamp. THAT’S HOW SERIOUS WE ARE!

BUT now it’s time for the biggest most official-est news of all, and NO this is not an April Fool’s Joke!

SATURDAY MAY 2nd! At the BELMONT in HAMTRAMCK, MI is your chance to see ThesePeople LIVE! (Just like Sesame Street LIVE, but better.)

YES to celebrate the release of our first ever THESEPEOPLE DVD we will be doing some live sketches and showing some of our favorites to a real live audience for the first time ever!

Also, you will be treated to live sets from some of Detroit’s best rock bands like Millions of Brazilians AND when the bands stop we’ll be closing the Belmont down with a dance party featuring DJ Grand Dad Crunk, and he’s promised to play “Pogo” by Digitalism so I am stoked.

So to recap: May 2nd. Belmont. Hamtramck, MI. Meet ThesePeople. See ThesePeople. Be among the FIRST to get the ThesePeople DVD, and most importantly have your FACE ROCKED OFF!

More details as we get them.

Enjoy the Puppets! And Enjoy life!

See you in a couple weeks,
MaTT and ThesePeople
