Andy Cobb Takes on Sharron Angle

Sharron Angle is running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. In the state that brought us “checkups for chickens,” Angle has managed to out gaffe everyone. On Friday she told a group of Latino high school students that they really looked Asian to her. And that she herself had been mistaken for being Asian.

This video is a Second City production directed and written by the infamous Andy Cobb, concept by your favorite FBLA editor Tina Dupuy. The Angle impressionist is Ayumi Iizuka.

Dueling AZ Governor Spoof Videos

Last week the appointed governor of Arizona running for the office for the first time had her first televised debate. How’d it go? Well it’s all over the Internet. That’s good right? Let’s just say that in the opening statement Jan Brewer had a Rose Mary Woods erasing the tapes moment on live television. Cue YouTube spoofs.

The one above is from Andy Cobb‘s twisted mind and the Second City Channel. A nearly identical and not quite as good spoof by The Full Ginsburg sent to us this morning.

Yep, This is What the iPad Will Be Used For

Andy Cobb is a sick, sick man. But we were sent this press (ahem) release earlier this morning and well…maybe he’s just a dude who sees what’s coming…

Slightly NSFW…depending on which side of the hill you live on.

If C-SPAN Wasn’t Non-Profit

This comes to us from our ol’ pal satirist and filmmaker Andy Cobb also knows as the Mouthpiece Theater Killer.

If C-SPAN had a profit motive, it’d know how to promote this stuff.

Filmmaker Andy Cobb’s Take on the ‘Get LA’ Short Contest

We asked our favorite local short filmmaker Andy Cobb (AKA The Mouthpiece Theater Killer) what he thinks of LA Mags short film contest, “Get LA.”

“This contest is a cool deal,” Cobb tells FBLA. “Everybody shoots in LA but pretends it’s not even there–like LA’s supposed to just be a place that can pass for other areas of the country without ever probing what LA itself is about.”

He continues, “This contest is a great chance to do just that. And it’ll be a great chance for David Arquette and Eric Garcetti to enjoy the same film without it being raunchy hard-core foot fetish pornography. Don’t miss out, filmmaker-types.”

Contest info is here.

    “Mouthpiece Theater” Killer on the Loose

    We ran into comedian and film maker Andy Cobb on the convention floor at Netroots Nation.

    As we were taking his picture we overheard someone say,”Thank you for killing mouthpiece theater.”

    WaPo announced it’s canceling “Mouthpiece Theater.” Really? Did someone get the note the name sounds like a spoofy porn title? Or a nickname to the Tomkat Theater in WeHo? Get it – it’s sounds like a oral sex on a dude and how that can’t be AT ALL funny is the greatest mystery of this whole ordeal.

    Howard Kurtz writes:

    Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli killed the satirical video series Wednesday after harsh criticism of a joke about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which had prompted him to pull the latest episode from the paper’s Web site Friday night. The Post staffers who appeared in the videos, Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza, agreed with the decision and apologized in separate interviews.

    Plus we like to think the the death (ahem) blow was made by Andy Cobb‘s brilliant parody we posted yesterday. The other version is the web series imploded under the weight of its own lameness. Either way.
