During our Talk Show Subway Car project, photographer Ari Scott captured this great sequence. A woman rushed to enter the car before the doors closed and found herself right in the middle of our show. Moments later she and her friend were enthusiastic audience members, applauding with everyone else.
Check out my wife’s great new series!

For the latest Improv Everywhere project, we converted a New York City subway car into a late night talk show set. Host Pat Cassels (CollegeHumor) interviewed random commuters from his desk as bandleader Evan Gregory (The Gregory Brothers) kept the car rocking.

Abercrombie is in the news this week because their CEO says he doesn’t want fat people to shop in his stores. As a result, about a dozen people have emailed Improv Everywhere in the past two days suggesting we send a bunch of overweight people into one of their stores.
It’s been fun to write back and say, “Yes, we did this 6 years ago.”

I had a chance to see this movie at a screening in NY tonight. It’s great! You can buy it direct from the creators for $5. The future of film distribution!
Comedy website Splitsider just launched a new digital distribution label ‘Splitsider Presents’ and their first release is the hilarious feature film ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project.’ Available for $5 over at their website.
Director Ben Popik gathered together his former comrades from the legendary sketch group Olde English and tasked them with writing a movie. The catch: each of the five writers wrote 15 pages and only saw the previous five pages of the script. He then shot the movie they wrote, as well as documentary footage of the writing process and all the drama that it entailed, and put them all together into a unique comedy.
I had an opportunity to see the move last night and it is really something special. Besides being extremely funny and charming, it speaks volumes about the creative process, collaboration and friendship. The way the documentary aspect mirrors the narrative they wrote is fascinating. The film becomes much more than a silly project, but rather evolves into a statement about human nature and relationships. You definitely haven’t seen anything like it.
The project I’ve been working on for the past year is finally live! Check it out! I couldn’t be prouder to be a small part of this amazing movie.
For the latest Improv Everywhere mission we posed as city workers providing a ridiculous solution to the “texting and walking” epidemic in New York.
