Check out current Wife Jill Alexander and ex-Wife Zabeth Russell in this sketch from Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jill and Zabs co-star with Kerry Washington as a group of housewives obsessed with Scandal. Be sure to stick around for Zabs’ last line:
“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!
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.
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.
So this is cool. We’ve been asked by the good people at Impro(vs)tandup to represent the improv half of their next show at the NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown in Hollywood. Past guests have included King Ten, Dasariski, and others, so we’re honored to be among their company.
The show includes standup from Andrew Santino (Arrested Development, Punk’d) and Melissa Villasenor (Family Guy, Adventure Time), so there’s bound to be something for everyone who likes to laugh.
So join us next Thursday at Meltdown. We’re not sure if it’s an actual competition, but if it is, we’re siccing Dave Park on them.

You have no idea how hard it was for me to keep a straight face during this shoot.
