Welcome, Internet!

Our Charlie St. Cloud Inception theory has gotten a little bit of buzz, and as a result we’ve had a few new readers here at the blog. And by “a few,” I mean “more than twice as many readers as the entire rest of the blog’s existence combined.”

Those People mostly does live improv comedy shows in the Lawrence/Kansas City area. In September, we’re performing at the Kansas City Improv Festival alongside acts like Der Monkenpickel (featuring SNL’s Jason Sudeikis). Our blog is pretty sparse, but we plan on posting some fun stuff in the near future, and we’d like you to stick around.  So we encourage you to subscribe to our blog using the “You Want Mail? You’ve Got Mail” box over on the right.

In the meantime, why not retweet or buzzfeedify the Inception theory and/or read an earlier post?

We hope to see you again soon!

Ask Alex Anything (Anonymously!)

Formspring.me is a great place for high school girls to anonymously call fellow high school girls  “OMG like, total bitches.” It’s also a great place to get answers on some of the most pressing issues of our time.

Go to my formspring and ask me a question about anything, and I’ll answer it to the best of my abilities. The top questions will occasionally be posted on this here blog.

Here are some samples:

If you could have invented one thing, what would it have been?

I guess this is as good a venue as any to get this off my chest:

That sonofabitch Jonas Salk stole the idea for the polio vaccine from me.

Salk, President Roosevelt and I were all hanging out one day, just sitting around and chilling or whatever. So FDR says, “Guys, this polio shit is fucking me up, for reals.” And so I say, “We should come up with a vaccine to cure that.” And FDR says “Wow, that’s a great idea, Alex!” He was really into it.

Salk, in the meantime, said nothing. He just sat there nodding a bit, like he was distracted. I didn’t realize it then, but he was making a mental note to steal the shit out of my idea! What an asshole!

So FDR ends up dying, and then several years later I see Salk’s smug face on the front page of the newspaper for curing polio. Meanwhile, I’m broke, toiling in obscurity and answering anonymous questions on the internet.

Jonas Salk is a thieving piece of shit.

Upright Citizens Brigade/NYC trip

Went to Upright Citizens Brigade theatre last night and saw Pete from 30 Rock and his attractive lady partner do some wonderful long form comedy!

Things Learned from this adventure.

1. You DO NOT need more than two people to make a successful improv scene

2. Scott Adsit is not as bald as he seems

3.  Scott Adsit is much funnier than me.

New Years Resolution: Bring more funny to the table, and less potato salad.

ALSO!!!!! Been writing / developing ideas. Stay tuned for the Just Woke Up Talk Show with JT and Chris!

Nocturnal Prophecy

I had a prophecy last night.  I dreamt of meeting Donald Glover, an actor commonly known for his work in a series of silly, humorous sketches done by a him and his college friends in a group called “Derrick Comedy.”  Derrick Comedy’s work can be found here.

More recently, he’s been winning awards for co-writing episodes of “30 Rock” (you know, that show that everybody likes) and also has a recurring role on the new comedic television show “Community” (you know, the show that I like).  And on a personal note, people tell me I act like him.

Anyway, I was honored to meet the man.  And we hit it off!  We laughed at the same jokes and held hands and walked down the red carpet together in a totally not gay way.  It’s true.  Fame and fortune seemed just within my grasp.
