Best Brief Employment

And by "employment" I do not mean that I was paid. But tonight I was an extra for a sketch on the new Human Giant show that'll be coming to MTV soon. That's right! In a number of months, you might be able to see my head in the background of a brief sketch on basic cable! Keep your eyes peeled for when the Illusionators try their missile catching trick!

This is what it looked like when we were taken out of our vans and told what we'd be doing.


Fact: we were not there that long, but it was so so so freezing cold.

After the shoot we headed back to the Upright Citizens Brigade for the finest Crash Test (that's the name of a weekly show) I've ever witnessed. The Human Giant fellows showed rough cuts of some sketches and told stories and then AD Miles and Eugene Mirman told some excellent jokes. What a fine evening for comedy!

Appendix If you're wondering what "Human Giant" is, I suggest you begin solving this mystery by visiting their website and taking it from there. (the bottom video features the Illusionators, so maybe watch that one?)

at a time when you are unemployed, you should really really be trying to be extras in as many things as possible. They always need people during the week at night or daytime.
