It's the dawn of a new era for Wrestling Team: the premiere of our re-branded video podcast, "Laugh Stains!" Laugh Stains will offer the same Wrestling Team-style chuckles that you have come to expect but in a more visually-interesting package. And at a more consistent pace. So subscribe to our feed, or whatever it is that you do with these things. Another goal of ours is to understand what Web 2.0 means. The first Laugh Stains Adventure, "Love & Death," was inspired by the Chris Morris series "Jam." We are lip-syncing to an audio sketch that we did for Unicorn Mountain and can only hope to achieve even a fraction of the cognitive dissonance that is Morris' stock in trade. Enjoy.
Above anything else, Mark and I are historians of comedy, delving deep into the murky crapbin that is The Ghost of Humor Past. Whether it was Lenny Bruce's ill-fated sitcom I Love Filthy or Mort Saul's failed news/comedy show Fuck You, I'm Not Writing Any Jokes, we've seen it all. At least we thought we had. Recently on an excavation in Iraq, where on behalf of Lloyd Blankfein we had been bartering for stolen objects d'art filched from the National Museum, we unearthed a suitcase filled with old tapes, chief among them were some of Yakov Smirnoff's old shows from right when he got off the boat. His first real mentor here was Andrew "Dice" Clay, and the influence on Smirnoff's early jokes is obvious. If you find this unbelievable and you are crying "Bullshit" into the air like some smarmy young turk, then pull up your ears and take a gander for yoursmellf.
Wrestling Team is back with more Laugh Stains! Laugh Stains, the comedy video podcast that n'everyone is n'talking about has returned for round two! This week, Wrestling Team is burning up the charts with a club banger that two-steps with Death. Remember, you cannot truly fight until you have faced your enemy. Let go, embrace your destiny, and join The Skull in battle.
Wrestling Team hosted the lovely improv team Froduce's show on January 24th, and one of the bits we did in-between acts was a game we invented called Real Finger, Fake Finger. We won't explain it here, but you can see it in the video.
