Goose Egg!

We’re baaaaaaaack!

That’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 we’re in a new city, New York City! (also don’t be surprised if this year features sketches from Chicago, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and of course Detroit.)

I’ve been in NY for nearly a year now and I’ve found two things: first, I found some great people to collaborate with. (You’ll meet some of them in this sketch.) Secondly, I’ve learned that I absolutely LOVE Big Buck Hunter. It’s pretty much the funnest thing in the world, and nothing is more satisfying than killing a huge elephant for your trophy animal.

Today’s sketch combines these two things, presenting…”Buck Hunter” 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, it’s got action, adventure, some comedy, and a lot of great special effects from our editor Mr. Steve Immer.

This winter we’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 importantly…enjoy!

Stay tuned and stay awesome,
MaTT and ThesePeople

A Vampire Hunter Who is Homeless, not a Hunter of Homeless Vampires, Okay?

Happy Halloween Boys and Ghouls!!!

You didn’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 didn’t. PRESENTING a project near and dear to my heart “EDISON PRICE: HOMELESS VAMPIRE HUNTER” ThesePeople’s first ever web-series. We shot this a while back with a team of ThesePeople all stars and we’ve been waiting for the right moment to share it with the world, and what better time, than Shocktobersketch 5?

That’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 “Sex Addict” and “WhoreSquare” Ryan Mason who is a vampire hunter going through some tough times. He makes an unlikely friend in Jack (that’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!

Happy Halloween!
MaTT and ThesePeople.

Back to School, Back to Comedy

Hey All!

It’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.

Here’s another gem from ThesePeople starring Jeff and Pretty Doctor Tim, Pediatric Gynecologist.

It’s called “Foods That Aren’t Meat” 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 didn’t get a chance to shoot it out there.

THEN we were supposed to shoot it in Detroit in Tim’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? You’re welcome.

Back at the ThesePeople ranch we’re trying to rustle up some exciting Halloween offerings for you, as we love to do this time of year. We’re thinking “The Human Millipede”… 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!

Miss u,
MaTT and ThesePeople

It’s Foursquare for the people you bang!

Hey Guys and Gals,

How is it going? I’m doing great, because LOST is on tonight, and I saw Kick-Ass the other day and it was awesome. And thus ends this edition of ThesePeople’s pop culture review….or does it?

We hope you enjoyed the debut of our “QUICKIES” last week with “Up Your Butt”. You can look forward to (or I guess dread) a lot of quick, fun sketches like that in the future. We’re all about getting content in your face at all times.

Today however, we bring you a full-fledged new sketch. We’re very excited about this one and think it’ll find a nice little home in the current Internet social networking trend, and NO, it’s not about Chatroulette. (surprisingly). This is a little ditty we call “Whoresquare” which pretty much does exactly what the increasingly popular app “Foursquare” does except… sexier.

This sketch was shot in Hollywood, California with the help of the ThesePeople West Cost team Joel Slabaugh, and Ryan Mason. PLUS it features an appearance from Lauren, star of the 15th most watched comedy video of ALL TIME on YouTube, “Homemade Porn” and the more respectable, but less watched “Killing Button”. Yes, you get ALL that, PLUS original music from the great Matt Raetzel.

Hope you guys dig this one! With your help we can go big! So digg it, Facebook it, Friendster it, hell, check into it on Foursquare.

And as always, keep the pin requests coming! If you haven’t gotten your pin yet, hold tight they’re on their way! Also, while you’re here pick up some great ThesePeople stuff like DVDs or T-shirts. You’re gonna want to get in on the ground floor before ‘Whoresquare’ makes us so big that we’re the first guests on Conan’s new show on TBS and you can’t get a hold of us.

Have a good one!
MaTT and ThesePeople

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.


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!
