Just For Laughs

Where were you yesterday at 1:30 pm (Central)? Well… if you were in Chicago’s Millennium Park, you may have seen an outrageously awesome social experiment organized by Tyler Walker, of Improv Everywhere  in conjunction with TBS. As a publicity stunt to kick off the Just for Laughs event on TBS this week, an “MP3 Experiment” took place that lasted about 30 minutes. Participants were told to download a song via their respective mp3 players. Utilizing one DVC Pro HD and a couple of flip cams, various shooters captured this hilarious footage.

Suzie Moore edited the footage together and Megan Guerrant produced. They wrapped at about 11:30 lastnight and it’s live today! Talk about a quick turn around. I think my favorite part has to be when this “mysterious voice” actually got a mob of people to use their finger’s as moustaches! Brilliant!


Who You Gonna Call?

Why- the Gentlemen of Long Pork… that’s who!

Wait… what?

Foundation’s resident funny man, Zoran Gvojic and his sketch group, Long Pork are opening for Harold Ramis… you know… Egon from Ghostbusters and the Director of Groundhog’s Day!

Ramis will be sitting down with Aaron Freeman for an interview about The Meaning of Life. This is the first in a series of conversations at Emanuel on the Meaning of Life.

Located at:
5959 North Sheridan Road
Chicago, IL 60660-3643
General seating tickets range from $40 to $80. Patron tickets are $150 and include preferred seating, on-site parking at Emanuel and admission to an after-show event with Harold and Aaron. All tickets may be purchased on Brown Paper Tickets or by calling 800-838-3006.
And the best part?
Long Pork fans can get an additional $10 discount by using the promo code “longpork”. This also puts you in a drawing to win two free patron tickets and to get to meet Harold afterwards!!

Move Over Second City…Make Way for Long Pork!

Excuse me?!

But seriously… Foundation employee and resident “funny guy” Zoran Gvojic and his comedy group, Long Pork, were just written up in the Chicago Tribune for their splendid show “Soda”.

Below is an excerpt from the review:

The Long Pork troupe proves that transitions between scenes (and even intermission) can be an opportunity for yet more comedy. “Soda” (directed by TJ Jagodowski) is also one of the few examples of sketch that uses multimedia to play up the live-action onstage.

There’s a hilarious bit that brings to mind a 3-D movie gone haywire (the performers jump out from the screen, and back again). That it’s set in a men’s john is just sophomoric enough to cut the high-concept premise down to size.

It’s a strong group.

If the rest of the troupe is as bizarrely entertaining as Zoran…then you have no excuse not to go see this show!

Check it out through May 23 at the Apollo Studio Theater, 2540 N. Lincoln Ave. Tickets are $15 at 773-935-6100. (The show is at 8:00pm every Saturday.)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Awards Season…

And why shouldn’t that include the UA Awards?

What are the UA Awards. you might ask…

Well, if you’ve been keeping up with your Foundation Content news, you know all about our newest oiriginal animated series for the web created by Ian Pfaff. UNDERWATER ADVENTURE!!! Now we all know that Ian is  no stranger to outlandish parodies, bizarre humor and cartooning…but put all of that into ONE show…underwater…with crude animation and you get “Underwater Adventure”.

Anyway, with award fever claiming the souls of millions across the country, we thought we’d cash in as well. And the nominees are….

Of the new series, Ian says “The goal is to make quick, oceanic experiences that try to “outstupid” each other…my goal is to make a thousand. Lately, I feel that’s my calling”.

Check out the first few episodes of what is sure to be hailed one of the great cult-classics of our time on our youtube channel!

Zoran SAW It First!

Literally…kind of…

Two years ago, our dear assistant Zoran Gvojic created this lil’ spoof on the SAW movies and created SAW 4…which had not come out yet. View it below like the 6 million people before you! (btw, my favorite part is at the very very end so make sure you watch the whole way through!)

Now let me ask you this… which do you prefer? Zoran’s or the Lion’s Gate Films “version”…see…what I did there? I didn’t say “original” b/c it’s not!
