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

A sketch I wrote on why John McCain is announcing his vice presidential candidate on his birthday. This is part of a series of videos and sketches I have been working on with Phillip Wilburn. You can check them out at Funnyordie.com. This sketch was featured in the Improv Olympic show Big News on August 24:
STRAIGHT TALK ON BIRTHDAYS
“Straight Talk” theme music and title card come up. Spotlight up on on JOHN MCCAIN addressing the crowd. Lights not up on the other characters, gathered around a table center stage.
On my birthday, August Twenty-Ninth, I’m going to announce who my running mate is. Now, people come up to me and say, “Hey John McCain, why don’t you do something cool on your birthday, like go to Chuck-E-Cheese? Why do you have to make a big announcement that day?” Let me give you the Straight Talk. See, on my birthday, I’m going to get a year older, and the thing is, I’m already pretty old as it is. I want to have a distraction because I’m getting tired of people talking about my age. For example, let’s look at my birthday from last year.
Lights up on CINDY MCCAIN, MEGHAN MCCAIN, JACK MCCAIN, JAMES MCCAIN, BRIDGET MCCAIN and JOE LIEBERMAN around a table. John walks over and joins them. Read the rest of this entry »
