Quickies!

What is up Everyone!

How are you?

Anyone else as excited as I am that it’s Baseball season?

Go Tigers!

I’m here today because I wanted to drop a quick blog on you all to let you know ThesePeople are adding a new bit of spice to our normal awesome sketches.

INTRODUCING….ThesePeople QUICKIES!

Because we don’t like the gaps that come in between releasing sketches any more than you do we’ve taken to shooting super short sketches whenever a couple of us can get together. This maximizes our time, and your laughter, and everyone wins.

We have a few of these stored up we’ll be dropping on you in the coming months and wanted to start you off with a little number called “Up Your Butt”. The REAL beauty of these quickies is that I don’t have to write plot synopsis. They’re so short, by the time you’re done reading this you could have watched “Up Your Butt” like 6 times. So please do. Watch it again and again and let us know what you think of the NEW Format. And don’t worry we still have plenty of full size sketch fun coming at you.

Luv u lots,
MaTT and ThesePeople

And again GO TIGERS!

The Incredible Journey

What is up Campers!?

Welcome to Mid-March. The great dull stretch of time before baseball, good weather or anything cool.

Well, we thought we’d do something to help pass the time. Release a sketch. This is a little number called “Hoodward Bound: The Incredible Journey (based on the novel ‘PUSH’ by Sapphire.”) and we’re quite proud of it. In fact, ThesePeople’s Tim says “This could be my new favorite sketch of all time.” And he’s not even in it.

‘Hoodward Bound: The Incredible Journey’ tells the heartwarming and at times terrifying tale of a poor hoodie that gets forgotten in the back seat of a car and must make his way home to his owner.

Some people may notice a strong similarity between the name and plotline of this sketch and the name and plotline of the 1993 family film “Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey”. Let me assure you, that is purely a coincidence. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

Check out our latest here, or on our YouTube page. And hey, feel free to subscribe on YouTube if you’re not already, tell your friends!

In addition to this new sketch we’ve been hard at work on some other new material, including a new breed of ThesePeople “Quickies”. We’ve stock piled of a few super short comedy masterpieces in hopes of preventing longer wait periods between sketches. This way you guys get MORE comedy, in more consistent doses. And that will leave us ALL smiling.

Thanks a lot for watching and PLEASE keep those pin requests coming! We’ll be doing a mass mailing soon! And don’t forget to pick up a ThesePeople DVD or T-shirt. They make the perfect Easter gift.

Stay awesome,
MaTT and ThesePeople.

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!
