Like Father, Like Son

August 19, 2009

A sketch on Tom Cruise and his son Connor, who was recently cast in the remake of “Red Dawn.”  This sketch was featured in the Improv Olympic show Top Story Weekly on August 16, 2009.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Lights up on CONNOR, ADRIANNE, and CHRIS in a scene.  DAN the director, directs them.

DAN
Okay, guys, this was one of the pivotal scenes in the original Red Dawn.  Patrick Swayze’s character, that’s you Chris, really gets in Daryl’s face.  And Jennifer Grey’s character will come in as the sympathetic one.

ADRIANNE
I’m sorry Dan, why do you keep referring to me as Jennifer Grey’s character?  My name’s Adrianne.  My character’s name is Toni. .

DAN
It’s just my process.  Don’t take offense.

ADRIANNE
OK.

DAN
OK, let’s roll one.  Chris, you good?  Adrianne?  OK, good.  Tom Cruise’s adopted son Connor Cruise, you ready?

CONNOR
(ala Tom Cruise)
I’m ready!  Let’s do a take!

Good Doctor: The Britney Spears Edition

January 24, 2008

Dr. Phil has been criticized for his involvement in trying to help Britney Spears. Maybe Dr. Phil is an opportunist or maybe he truly cares, but the better question is “Would he help?” Would he be a good doctor for Ms. Spears to visit? So I’ve decided to compile a list of noted doctors. We’ll take a look at how they would treat Britney Spears and whether they would be a Good Doctor or a Bad Doctor.

Dr. Drew Pinsky
Treatment: Bring her into Celebrity Rehab where she can detox and discuss her problems with the guy from Taxi and a couple porn stars.
Analysis: The self-described addictionologist can help wean Britney off her drink of choice – Red Bull, Vodka, and Cherry NyQuil – and get her the medical attention she needs. But more importantly, she can take a look at the has-beens in front of her and improve her self-esteem by repeating to herself, “It’s Britney, bitch.” Would this make her more likely to believe she doesn’t really have a problem comparatively? Maybe. But Dr. Drew can show Britney barely living examples of where she could be if she doesn’t get her life in order. And his experience on Loveline can help her get out of the unhealthy relationship with Adnan Ghalib.
For Britney, GOOD DOCTOR
