I hate to say it, but it’s very easy to forget a friend’s birthday. I’m not as active on Facebook as I once was, some friends aren’t even on social media any more, and at times it’s hard to keep track of my own birthday. On top of that, what constitutes as wishing someone a happy birthday? Does a Facebook post count? I’ve had friends get mad at me over not wishing them a happy birthday, in a proper way. So, I took the Larry David approach to the situation, and made a sketch on the subject. Here is our new sketch “Happy Birthday, Man.”
I put together a blooper reel from a short-film (Squares in CIrcles) I wrote/directed with some pals. Please pardon our French, we were having fun. Hopefully, I’ll get the full short-film up on here in the near future for your viewing pleasure (or disgust if you wanna be a d*** about it). It’s about a college-kid named Dylan (played by my friend and co-producer Al Karsten) who gets dumped flat on his face after his girlfriend’s father catches his inappropriate stand-up act. After the break-up he realizes he is completely alone and struggles to fit-in on campus, until he meets a stoner (played by yours truly) who seems to have it all going for him…but behind closed doors deals with some loneliness of his own. The video also features the very funny Dan Noble, who vomits hilarity in these bloopers (quite literally at parts, which—I apologize for ahead of time, but it had to make the cut). Finally, our beloved angel, AJ Hensen makes a cameo.
Hope you enjoy, stay tuned for the full 30-minute short.
