30 Rock’s Scott Adsit quickly snapped this photo backstage at the May 2013 Thrilling Adventure Hour in Brooklyn— Paget Brewster and I are about to make our entrance as Frank & Sadie Doyle. I am helping Paget up the stairs because I am a gentleman and because she is a lady who wears life-threatening ladyshoes. Director Aaron Ginsburg counts to one Euro-style in the background. Also pictured: a giant thumb monster.
From The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents: A Valentine’s Day Beyond Belief, recorded live at Largo at The Coronet, 14 February 2013. Words, music, and piano playing by the great Eban Schletter.

“Two immense stars from the world of music, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic & Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber are on today’s Comedy Bean Bag! After chatting with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber about English accents, The Little Prince, and nautical bed bugs, the Vicar of Yanks himself joins in on the conversation. There will be talk of drugs, what we shouldn’t expect from the next ‘Weird Al’ album, and an intense game of Would You Rather? Homonyms!”
