I’m Waiting By The Phone, Maria

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Olde English recently got interviewed by Super Deluxe about Super Deluxe (more specifically Olde English on Super Deluxe). Here’s the long version. Here’s the short version. Basically, the only important information is that we host a live show called Very Fresh the third Saturday of every month at midnight. This Saturday, we’re pleased to welcome […]

You can stop writing those letters already.

So, this is long due for an update: whatever happened with the proposed New York filming regulations we rapped about over a month ago? Well, the short answer is we won. The proposed laws were dropped and something new (and hopefully better) will be written up by the Mayor’s Office and open to a similar […]

Vote for Oren!

Monday, July 9th, 2007

My whole body is sore right now because I’ve spent the week running, jumping, and kicking my way through New York City for a new video we’re working on.  The video is so action packed, at one point our camera got knocked over and the view screen shattered.  Our regular editor and good friend Oren […]

I Hate You, Zach Brack!

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

Two days ago, comedian Eric Andre asked me who exactly is on “the Olde English Team.”  It takes more than just the five of us to make our sketches come together and the new Michel Gondry video is the perfect showcase of all our friends’ many talents. Julia Segal is officially our “Production Manager” but […]

Oui Oui!

So, here’s a story. Olde English has a monthly show at the UCB Theatre in New York where we invite guests to share new material and we present new material of our own. (The show is called Very Fresh and tickets for the next one are on sale now.) Last week, we premiered a video […]

Consider Your Appetite Be-whetted

Monday, April 30th, 2007

Hey everyone! While I know that you love seeing new Olde English sketches on Super Deluxe, it’s much more fun for me to see you squirm. To that end, here are some previews of upcoming sketches, in the form of candid on-the-shoot snapshots:

A thing or two about boxes.

Here’s a fun game! First, watch the last ten seconds of our sketch “Writers of Lost.” Then, click below to watch a (really, really ridiculous) scene from last week’s episode of Lost. I don’t even know what to say, other than that I love the fact that at some point the writers of Olde English […]

Aspen – Day Whatever

Monday, March 5th, 2007

Back in New York now. Exhausted. Here’s a brief rundown of my last day in Aspen before I go to sleep. Since we were done performing Friday night, Saturday was like a bonus day for us to do all the things we didn’t have time to earlier in the week, because of last minute rehearsing/writing. […]

Aspen – Day 4

Saturday, March 3rd, 2007

Good morning, morning! Yesterday was Adam’s birthday and we celebrated by writing and rehearsing a sketch all day. We performed at Fat City Lounge, a late-night variety show, for one of the warmest, largest crowds we’ve ever had. We were also greeted backstage by a bottle of champagne sent by Adam’s parents (thanks, Adam’s parents!). […]

Aspen – Day 3

Friday, March 2nd, 2007

What’s up, all you Mr. and Mrs. Fancy Pantses? We had a show today and we did an interview with a local TV station and the LA Times, so we didn’t have a lot of time to see other shows, but we did get to see a pretty great stand-up show today.  I won’t go […]
