Weâ€™re back! New material! I know it seems like weâ€™ve been gone for a while, but thatâ€™s because (and I think we can tell the press this now) ThesePeople are actually SEAL Team 6. So we were a little busy.
Anyway, todayâ€™s offering is a star studded Internet crossover to end all Internet crossovers. It stars myself (Matt) along with Six Finger Fistâ€™s Dwayne Bartholomew and Sean Cameron of the upcoming Mort and Friends. Both of these blokes are no strangers to ThesePeopleâ€™s Internets as you can see Dwayne in â€œProfessor Palsâ€ and the cult hit â€œHot Dogs Anytimeâ€ while Sean chews the scenery in â€œThe Englishmanâ€ and â€œGhostelâ€.
This sketch was once again shot in a fancy hotel out on the Left Coast and was shot and masterfully edited by our good friend Joel Slabaugh.
Should I tell you what it is now? Probably. I wanted to give you all the back story first so you know all the people who donated their valuable time and talents and that way you donâ€™t just see the title and then go watch the sketchâ€¦oh rightâ€¦THE SKETCH! Itâ€™s called â€œThe Lame-Overâ€ and itâ€™s a parody of the popular film â€œThe Hangoverâ€ except these three guys had a very different kind of night.
We hope you enjoy the sketch! I think this will be our summer blockbuster and shatter all previous opening week numbers for a movie parody sketch.
Weâ€™ll see you again real soon!
Thatâ€™s right, ladies and gents, ThesePeople have risen from their graves ala Altered Beast (ask your older brothers) for a new year of new comedy! And now weâ€™re in a new city, New York City! (also donâ€™t be surprised if this year features sketches from Chicago, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and of course Detroit.)
Iâ€™ve been in NY for nearly a year now and Iâ€™ve found two things: first, I found some great people to collaborate with. (Youâ€™ll meet some of them in this sketch.) Secondly, Iâ€™ve learned that I absolutely LOVE Big Buck Hunter. Itâ€™s pretty much the funnest thing in the world, and nothing is more satisfying than killing a huge elephant for your trophy animal.
Todayâ€™s sketch combines these two things, presentingâ€¦â€Buck Hunterâ€ starring myself, and new friends of ThesePeople Jon, Wheeler and Dee. It tells the cautionary tale of what happens when video game taunting goes too far.
We really hope you enjoy it, itâ€™s got action, adventure, some comedy, and a lot of great special effects from our editor Mr. Steve Immer.
This winter weâ€™ve been stockpiling scripts and meeting lots of new people to work with so we can start making more of the comedy you helped make more popular than Susan Boyle on YouTube.
So watch, comment, like us on Facebook and most importantlyâ€¦enjoy!
Stay tuned and stay awesome,
MaTT and ThesePeople
Happy Halloween Boys and Ghouls!!!
You didnâ€™t think your old pals ThesePeople were going to leave you high and dry for Halloween, did you!?
Well, did you!?!
No? Good. Because we didnâ€™t. PRESENTING a project near and dear to my heart â€œEDISON PRICE: HOMELESS VAMPIRE HUNTERâ€ ThesePeopleâ€™s first ever web-series. We shot this a while back with a team of ThesePeople all stars and weâ€™ve been waiting for the right moment to share it with the world, and what better time, than Shocktobersketch 5?
Thatâ€™s right 5 years of ThesePeople Horror Comedy.
Edison Price: Homeless Vampire Hunter is about Edison Price, a homeless vampire hunter, portrayed brilliantly by star of â€œSex Addictâ€ and â€œWhoreSquareâ€ Ryan Mason who is a vampire hunter going through some tough times. He makes an unlikely friend in Jack (thatâ€™s me! Matt!), a young professional with a very serious problem only Edison can help him with.
In the episode look for ThesePeople favorite Kim Cooper, one of my favorite brothers, Paul, and for a split second NICK! Plus, more surprise guests are coming up in future episodes, so grab some garlic and stay tuned.
We love you all!
MaTT and ThesePeople.
Itâ€™s Matt live from my sexy leather couch in my cozy Brooklyn Apartment. How are you guys? Ready to laugh? You guys are still into laughing, right? GOOD.
Hereâ€™s another gem from ThesePeople starring Jeff and Pretty Doctor Tim, Pediatric Gynecologist.
Itâ€™s called â€œFoods That Arenâ€™t Meatâ€ and to tell you anymore would be to ruin it. I can tell you it was originally conceived in Los Angeles with our dear friend (and star of Sex Addict and Buddy Escorts) Ryan Mason, but we didnâ€™t get a chance to shoot it out there.
THEN we were supposed to shoot it in Detroit in Timâ€™s apartment, but I forgot a very important prop on our shoot day. So we went all over Detroit trying to find a replacement, but as it turns out there are no operational stores in Detroit so that hindered our process. We ended up just shooting it back at my place in my basement. Great story, right? Youâ€™re welcome.
Back at the ThesePeople ranch weâ€™re trying to rustle up some exciting Halloween offerings for you, as we love to do this time of year. Weâ€™re thinking â€œThe Human Millipedeâ€â€¦ you guys into that? Good.
Hope you guys are enjoying fall, fantasy football, and collecting a lot of syllabi. Enjoy the new sketch! More coming soon!
