#tbt to that time I lost all the hair on my head and face and had to have my scalp opened up to mine for more. Oh, and watch Comedy Bang Bang tonight if you like Werner Herzog.
Paul, how long must we wait for you to play Founder of Our Country George Washington, First President and Proto-Steampunk Frankenstein Monster* on a music album already?
Well, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH NOW! Because it’s finally happening!
"The year is 2776, and on the thousandth birthday of America, an evil Alien (Martha Plimpton) threatens to destroy the nation, unless the President (Will Forte) and his Secret Service agent (Aubrey Plaza) can convince her it’s worth saving. Together with a cranky George Washington (Paul F. Tompkins) they travel through our nation’s history—past AND future, taking on everything American — immigration, religion, the media, sports, politics, sex, droids, and rock n’ roll. Along the way they meet notable Americans, from God (Patton Oswalt) to the Common Cold (Aimee Mann). Can America be saved? Kind of. It’s complicated.
2776 is an epic musical/comedy extravaganza featuring 28 tracks and over 80 comedians, musicians and actors to benefit OneKid OneWorld. 2776 will be released on July 4, 2014 and is available for preorder today. 2776 was created by The Levinson Brothers and Rob Kutner.”
