Jill Alexander for Honda Summer Clearance

Filed under: ,

Check out our lovely Jill Alexander in this commercial for Honda’s Summer Clearance. Jill plays a doctor who prescribes a new car to someone who tweets at her, which is a preposterous premise because a) doctor’s can’t prescribe automobiles, b) especially to patients who just tweet at them, c) Jill is not a doctor, and d) she even admits to such at the end of the spot, rendering the whole goddamn thing moot. I am so upset right now.

I made a person. And a movie.

Last summer, when I was pregnant with my daughter, my friends and I shot a horror/comedy feature film called “The Shower.” My husband wrote and directed it and we all raised the money to make the movie through grassroots fundraising on our website www.TheShowerTheMovie.com. We made the movie and I even went into labor on set. You’re welcome. Now we are almost done; we’re getting ready to head into post-production and are running a campaign called “500 DONORS IN 500 HOURS.” Please watch this two minute video where a very cute, blood-drenched fellow (my husband, Alex Drummond) shows clips and behind-the-scenes peeks… Thank you!

Watch Jill Get It On With the Mailman on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Filed under: ,

Check out our very own Jill Alexander in this fun clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live about Netflix Cheating. Which apparently is totally a thing.

(Fun fact: Jill’s husband is played by the great Kevin Linehan, who I was on a Harold team with before Trophy Wife called “Cornbread Maxwell.” Also on that team was Kimmel head writer Molly McNearney. SO IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW, DOESN’T IT?)

Kevin's 100 Cartoon Self Portraits

Cartoon Kevin

“To thine own self be true!” Shakespeare wrote it and our Kevin McShane is testing its limits. On the website Cartoon Kevin you can find one picture of Kevin and one HUNDRED interpretive drawings of that picture. Each one is an homage to a great animator and yet each one remains Kevin’s… own self. It’s true!

Kevin’s project has already reached the front page of Reddit, and been featured on Laughing Squid and iO9. Amazing!

Trophy Wife 8th Anniversary

In April of 2005, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was inaugurated as the 265th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church taking the name Pope Benedict XVI.

Halfway across the world, a small rag-tag group of Los Angeles improvisers took the name Trophy Wife and performed their first show on the mainstage at iOWest.

Eight years later, guess who's still standing?

That's right, bitches. We outlast Popes.

So join us Tuesday, April 16th at 9:30pm at iOWest as we gloat over outliving a Papal Reign. We'll have special guests, t-shirt giveaways, and much much more.

Trophy Wife Ties for First at NerdMelt LA

Filed under: ,

Trophy Wife at NerdMelt LA

We had a great time last night at IMPRO (vs) TANDUP at NerdMelt LA. For the uninitiated, the show pits an single improv team against a trio of stand-ups with the audience deciding who they liked better.

After our show (no video, sorry), stand-ups Andrew Santino, Melissa Villasenor, and Andy Peters took to the stage for back-to-back sets. Despite repeatedly calling us “improvers,” all three comics were polished and hilarious. You should definitely check them out at your favorite comedy venue whenever they’re there.

After the stand-up sets, it was time to turn the tables. The improvisers had to do three minutes of stand-up and the stand-ups had to do three minutes of improv. We elected our own Mike Coen to represent us. Mike killed it – taking a suggestion from the audience and riffing on his age with references to Faces of Death, White Rain, and Dan Haggerty (from our most recent show) in the charming, self-deprecating way that only Mike can.

Then the stand-ups took to the stage and improvised a few scenes that included some good-natured ribbing at improvisers in general (it’s true, we do say “yes and” a lot).

The crowd was small, but very enthusiastic, and after the votes were counted, we actually tied with the stand-ups – which we immediately called bullshit on. We teamed up with the stand-ups and threatened to take on the audience and our hosts. Luckily, no blows were thrown.

Thanks to our hosts Rajan Dharni and Christian Spicer for inviting us to play. It’s always fun to perform in new venues and for new audiences and IMPRO (vs) TANDUP was no exeception. Be sure to check out their next show on April 11th at UCB.
