These Walking Teddy Bears want to Cuddle with You

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Hey Bearcats!

Matt here to bring you some summer fun and a hot new sketch that will turn you on as much as it makes you laugh… if you’re a very specific type of female.

You see, sometimes people have accused ThesePeople of objectifying women, most recently, Bill O’Reilly. (True story.) So we wanted to flip the script, turn the tables, spin the bottle and turn everything you thought you knew upside down by giving the fellas a chance to strut their stuff.

Introducing “Hairy Guyz,” a chat line for girls who like to run their fingers through their man’s chest hair while they spoon. (In this scenario the girl would have to be the big spoon.)

Check it out herez:

In other ThesePeople news, we have recently passed 10,000 subscribers on the YouTube and 12,000,000 views for “Homemade Porn,” and speaking of “Homemade Porn” it is the 92nd89th most viewed Comedy video on YouTube of ALL TIME! So, we’d like to take a moment to thank all of our fans for helping us be an actual YouTube presence in the endless void of Internet video.

We’d like to thank you by sending you a pin OR selling you a DVD or T-shirt! Details for all are available on the site!

We’ll see you in July! Have a great 4th. Don’t blow your fingers off, you need those.

This Sketch is Pretty Terrible!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

What is up People!?

I know, right? It’s been a while. We do a live show and then fall off the face of the Earth. Well, believe you me, we have some really great excuses.

First off, after the live show we were hungover for like three weeks, and we had to take like a dozen paternity tests (you know how THAT goes). THEN right when we were going to focus on videos again I (Matt) got sent to LA for two weeks, our editor Steve got sent to Dubai (no joke, he’s there right now), and our sound editor Andrew’s car caught fire! So even though we shot “Tim’s Idea” a while ago, it took us a while to get it on the interweb, which is fine, because I really wanted “Keep Cats Off the Streets” to linger for a while.

So that brings us to where we are now… “Tim’s Idea” one of our more bizarre sketches to date, but I love it. It’s a true ensemble sketch, and if you love self-reflexive insanity and explosions, you will love “Tim’s Idea.”

AND while you’re here, why not pick up a ThesePeople DVD!? Just $10 and THAT includes shipping! There is order info on the site. They were made with A LOT of love and care and are LOADED with special features. Definitely worth the $10! Plus you get stickers and pins and stuff when you order, so why the hell not, right?

We’ve got T-shirts for sale too! All new Dark blue with the Orange face! You’ll love them!

We’ll see you in a couple of weeks with a little something for the ladies!

Some Cats Have It All

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Well Cats and Kittens,

Weekends don’t get much bigger than this past one.

The first ever LIVE ThesePeople event. I really don’t think it could have gone any better. We packed the Belmont, we projected some classic sketches, we remembered all of our lines… it was great. PLUS we had amazing support from Elle and the Fonts, Lightning Love, and Millions of Brazilians. Then just as predicted DJ Grand Dad Crunk played “Pogo” by Digitalism (my most played song on my iTunes) I shouted the words like a drunken idiot and it was fantastic. Oh yeah, and there was confetti EVERYWHERE.

For those of you who made it out, thank you SO MUCH, it’d of been nothing without you and we hope to do it again real soon. For those of you who couldn’t be there, get some folks together, secure a venue and we’ll come to your town. We have a box of DVDs to sell and there are still lots of states I haven’t Karaoked in.

In the next couple weeks we’ll be posting pictures and some of the live material from the show so it can feel like you were there, and TODAY we’re sharing with you the NEW SKETCH we debuted on that special night.

“Keep Cats Off the Streets.” This sketch was made because we donated the results of the raffle we had at the live show to the Michigan Humane Society, however we feel the sketch stands up pretty good in any context, and is my favorite thing we’ve made in a while. I hope you love it.

Check it out here:

Speaking of DVDs… we have them for sale now! Right here on the site! $10 a piece for a DVD loaded with our favorite sketches, commentary, outtakes, interviews, all sorts of cool crap!!! And every DVD order comes with a FREE ThesePeople sticker which is also totally awesome.

And we’ve got Tshirts for sale too! Soon we’ll have pictures of all these things up on the site so you know what you’re buying. The DVD artwork is super sexy though, you’re going to love it.

Enjoy the new sketch and thanks for making us want to make videos.

Happy Mother’s Day,
MaTT and ThesePeople

Sunny Day, Sweepin’ the Clouds Away

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

Ain’t No Party

What up Fun Guys and Gals?

Hope those of you over 21 are recovering from bathing in green beer last night and are ready to get your laugh on. For you kids out there, I hope you wore plenty of green and no one pinched you.

Today ThesePeople are happy to share with you our latest sketch. A little gem we call “Fun Gus.” “Fun Gus” takes place at a party of suspiciously good looking people all abuzz over the arrival of a VERY special guest, everyone’s best friend, Fun Gus.

This sketch has one of our biggest casts to date, and features a lot of familiar ThesePeople faces as well as some new ones. A huge thanks to all of our friends who came to help out. They are too many to list, but we very much appreciate your help. As well as the help of our fabulous post production team, Editor Steve, Sound Engineer Andrew, and Matt R. on the background music.

Please join the party and watch the sketch on our beloved Website OR our equally beloved YouTube page. For every thousand views YouTube gives us a shiny 50-cent piece!

As you guys know we always strive to keep you up to date with ALL of our goings on, so I’d like to mention once again how good our “Operation Give Pins to EVERYONE” is going. As you can see from the map on our homepage, we are in well over half the states, but certain states are driving me nuts because they create big glaring holes in an otherwise coated countryside.

So this week we call out YOU Iowa and Louisiana. Iowa, for shame, you are our Midwestern brethren, you’re telling me no one in that whole state is watching “Full Throttle Douche Bottle” over and over? And Louisiana!? You’re like party town USA and the most haunted state in America (right?) you’re telling me no one like “Dead Girls Gone Wild” and “Ghostel” enough to get some free pins? Come on you guys, step up and be counted. Make your country proud.

And now on to the HUGEST news… EVER… this very weekend those ThesePeople members NOT in Chicago are heading to Chicago to do commentaries for the ALL NEW THESEPEOPLE DVD! Cover art for the DVD is currently in production, and bonus features are being put together. It’s going to be large and in charge.

When can you get this DVD you ask?

Why May 2nd at The Belmont in Hamtramck, MI. The first ever LIVE ThesePeople event featuring support from some of our favorite Detroit musicians including Millions of Brazilians. It will be a night of live comedy, rock and roll, old sketches, new sketches AND a dance party. Plus, your chance to be in a ThesePeople sketch. What more could you ask for!?

DVDs will be available on the site the day AFTER the show for you non-Metro-Detroiters.

Stay tuned to ThesePeopleComedy.com for more details. Questions or comments? Contact us on our website.

Next sketch drops April 1st… why, that’s April Fool’s Day! What a coincidence.

Your pals,
MaTT and ThesePeople
