We just launched some brand new sketch comedy produced by We Like Laughter and directed by my friend Ryan Turner. This one involves me, a curry and a pretty messy first date. If it makes you laugh, then help us go viral by sharing on Facebook, Twitter and the other one people use. Enjoy!

New Comedy – Hollywood Superstar – Watch It Now

1

We just launched a new We Like Laughter sketch “Hollywood Superstar”. It stars the brilliant Lindsey Shaw, Javier Aguayo, Mario Revolori and also an old friend of mine – Guy Steve. He’s like a more successful and less arrogant version of me.

Hope it makes you laugh. Help us spread the laugh by sharing this on Facebook and Twitter. #KeepBloodyDreaming

New Comedy – Lads Night Out

0

Yesterday was supposed to be the most miserable day of the year (according to some study somewhere) so we decided to release our new We Like Laughter sketch Lads Night Out. I say “new sketch” but we actually filmed it a bloody long time ago and were waiting for my co-star Chris Ash to have the right amount of star power (Facebook friends) before we launched.

Here it is finally in all it’s glory. I humbly ask that if you enjoy it please share on Facebook, Twitter and Friendster so that Rob & Stuart can go viral:

Thanks to everyone who helped us make it especially our Kickstarter backers. All credits are under the video on YouTube.

Special Delivery starring Tony Revolori & Arielle Kebbel – It’s Here!

0

I’m very excited to share our first We Like Laughter short film! Special Delivery is a 7 minute short comedy about a Pizza delivery Guy who is trying to win the heart of a beautiful female customer. What could possibly go wrong? I hope that you enjoy the film. Please share if it makes you laugh and help us spread the fun. Thanks!

This is the first time Tony Revolori has hit your screens since since his brilliant turn as the Lobby Boy in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was a pleasure to work with him and the rest of our talented cast on this. You might recognise Sasha Feldman as the James Franco lookalike in Scott’s Lookalikes.

There’s more comedy to come from We Like Laughter over the next month. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

‘Scott’s Lookalikes’ & ‘Tony’s Dojo’ Are Up For A British Comedy Award. Please Vote For Me!

On Friday I received the exciting news that two of my comedy projects, web series ‘Scott’s Lookalikes’ and our martial arts sketch ‘Tony’s Dojo’, have been longlisted for ‘Best Internet Comedy’ at the British Comedy Awards this year. Those are the awards hosted by Jonathan Ross every year where British comedians get drunk and slag each other off. Sort of like The Oscars if they were sponsored by Fosters and invited Johnny Vegas along.

So by now you’re probably screaming “How the hell do we get Greg to this illustrious event?”

Well I need your help. The sketches with the most online votes by the end of this week will be put forward for nominations. You can have a hand in my destiny. So I’m humbly asking my readers, fans, friends and enemies to please visit the following two links post haste and click “Vote”:

VOTE FOR SCOTT’S LOOKALIKES and TONY’S DOJO.

Click the titles for the links and scroll down to Vote. It takes 2 seconds (1.5 if you’re quick on the old mouse like me), you can vote for more than one project, and there’s no Sign Ups or Naked Photo Uploads needed.  You’ll even burn calories.

If we get nominated for the awards, my cousin Chris and I promise to wear the Dumb and Dumber tuxedos to the event so what are you waiting for? Do it now and Don’t Delay.

We’re up against some big hitters in the comedy world, so to help spread the word, you might even post this little message to your social media to help our campaign:

“My friend Greg is up for a British Comedy Award for his internet comedy. Please take 2 seconds to visit these two links to vote for his projects and help him achieve his dream of getting heckled by a drunk Johnny Vegas: http://www.comedy.co.uk/bca/video/43 AND http://www.comedy.co.uk/bca/video/94.

We Like Laughter – 3 New Sketches

Cast & Crew of 'Special Delivery' - A New Sketch by We Like Laughter

Cast & Crew of ‘Special Delivery’ – A new sketch by We Like Laughter

I’ve just finished filming the 3rd of 3 new comedy sketches for We Like Laughter, the online comedy project that we funded at the end of last year through Kickstarter!

I’ve been in LA for the past month or so and was inspired by the people I was meeting out here to write 3 comedy scripts and get them filmed before I headed back to England. There’s something about the energy of this city and the people I’m introduced to that gets me excited to make things. 3 projects in 10 days was certainly ambitious but knowing that I was heading back to the UK early August was a good motivator to get them done. Here’s the lowdown:

1/ The first sketch is called ‘Doggy Style’ and is directed by my friend Ryan Turner who you may remember directed the music video ‘I’m Not Gay’ last year that did very well online. ‘Doggy Style’ stars me and Corrin Evans, and was shot by Leigh Underwood who filmed Scott’s Lookalikes. Ryan is editing it together now and I hope the results are going to be very funny. I don’t want to give too much away right now as to what the title might mean but I’ll leave it to your imagination. It’s grosser than you think!

2/ The second shoot was actually a more of a short film. It’s called ‘Special Delivery’ and stars my friend Sasha Feldman (Franco in Scott’s Lookalikes), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries and lots of major films). The short was inspired by my friend Sasha’s exploits as an actual Pizza Delivery guy and an idea we had when I suggested I go on a ride along with him.

It was awesome to work with such a talented cast and I’m excited to edit it together. I’d like to maybe premiere it at a film festival as well as releasing it online so we’ll see how things progress.

3/ Then on Sunday we just shot ‘Hollywood Superstar’. In that one play an arrogant, British wannabe actor (which obviously wasn’t much of a stretch) who meets Lindsey Shaw (Pretty Little Liars) in a Coffee Shop and tries to impress her with the help of his bumbling Spanish assistant Javier played by friend Javier Aguayo (original character naming by me). We also have an appearance by Mario Revolori, Tony’s equally talented brother, proving that We Like Laughter is just one big incestuous family. The plot is equal parts awkward and ridiculous. I hope people will like my  character, even if he is a bit of a bastard.

More news soon. Laughter awaits. Thanks to all the backers who made them possible and don’t forget to keep up to date with all things We Like Laughter by liking/following us. Why Not Click Here Now -> Facebook and Twitter.

Here’s a photo of Lindsey Shaw and a fan from the ‘Hollywood Superstar’ shoot. I look sweaty and tired. She looks good. I made her wear the beret though so she’s now a member of We Like Laughter whether she likes it or not!

Dubble: Things You Can Do For 99 Cents

When we launched We Like Laughter one of our Kickstarter rewards was to get a commercial made by us for your product. Adam Scott (who I worked with at the Lomography store in London a few years back) was one of our backers and so I made this fun commercial in Portland for his new app. It’s called Dubble and allows you to mix photos you take on your phone with other people in the world to create double exposures.

It’s a cool idea and if you’re into analogue photography or just arty shit in general then you should really download the app and give it a go. Just after you watch and share the promo, of course. Thanks for taking a look:
