LA Actor/Comedian Matt Besser to be on "Sketched"!!

2009-05-14 10:42:17 by sirjeffofshort

Well, here's the announcement NG, later in the month we will be recording several sketches with Matt Besser. As a fantastic Actor, Comedian, the founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade along with Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh and Ian Roberts, and one of the pioneers of modern improv comedy he was a natural first choice for our special guests.

He may be recognized by most of you from television shows such as "Reno 911." "The Sarah Silverman Show," "The Mighty B," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "The Bernie Mac Show," and many more as well as the two shows he created for comedy central "The Upright Citizens Brigade," and the fake debate show "Crossballs." Others may also recognize him from his various film roles such as Dave, the guitar player from "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story."

This is a huge deal for myself and the rest of the Sketched crew as we have been following him as fans of his work for many years now, and an opportunity to work with such a talented comedian does not come by every day.

I highly recommend checking out his acting reel below (sorry it's just a link, I couldn't embed a Myspace video.) as well as some of my favorite clips of his.

Till next time, keep on rockin' NG.
