Sketched Out on TV – a New Podcast

sketched-out-logoHey readers, I just wanted to do a quick post to share a new podcast project that I’ve been working on for quite a while now. While it’s not entirely connected to superhero movies, the first episode does have a nice little superhero connection. I’ve joined forces with a co-host Chris Revill of Let’s Chat with Revill and Friends to discuss sketch comedy shows, something that I’ve loved just as long as my love of superhero movies and TV shows. Each episode we’ll be discussing a different sketch comedy TV show and will specifically be looking at a single sketch from the show. There are currently two episodes available to listen to now and we will be submitting to iTunes after the next episode drops. Click here to subscribe and/or listen to all the available episodes. In episode 1 we discuss the big one, Saturday Night Live, specifically when the Rock first hosted in 2000 and played Clark Kent in one of the sketches. And in episode 2 we discuss Mr. Show with Bob and David, specifically the Thrilling Miracles sketch from the second season with super pan. I hope you’ll listen and subscribe. Feedback can be sent to SketchedOutOnTV@gmail.com, you can follow us on Twitter @SketchedOutOnTV and if you have any suggestions for sketch comedy shows we should check out, be sure to let us know!
