I have a bit in this sketch for El Al Airlines. Special thanks to Ben Sheehan and Nic Stanich for making this possible. It was great to work with Erin McCarthy and Sasha Salinger again! Apparently this was all based on a true story? You can click this link here for the full details on the sketch. Also, in case you were wondering, I’m not Jewish. I was raised Catholic and now am a non-church-going but still God-fearing adult.
Tim McGovern and I do a two-man improv show for some reason. It’s called BEARDED OUT! It’s really funny and you should come see it. But don’t like, drive cross country if you don’t live in LA, because that would be ludicrous. On the plus side, we’ll be booking some shows in NYC just after Christmas and New Years. What do you call it..? January. If you want us to play at your venue, just contact me (shorester [at] gmail [dot] com) and we’ll set it up. Here are our upcoming show dates:
OCT 15 2012
Improv Prize Fight – Ruby Theater (The Complex: 6476 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA) – 7:00 PM
Please come support us at this show. It’s like a Battle of the Bands, so if we win, we move on to the next round.

Here’s a series of outtakes from a Jack Daniels spot I was in. They gave me a few basic ideas and told me to improvise the rest. THIS is the result.
