Paul Scheer started a weekly podcast called "How Did This Get Made?" just to talk about bad movies with his friends, so when he was on my show I was very excited to compare notes on the worst cinema we've ever experienced. We also discuss the difference between good-bad and bad-bad, which terrible movies influenced Paul's show NTSF:SD:SUV, and the Star Trek conventions he attended as a kid.

This Funny or Die video starring Paul Scheer as Nickelback's agent asks the brave question, "Would Detroit be happier with a band made up of Tom Selleck, Alice Cooper and Robocop than they are with Nickelback playing for their Thanksgiving game?" Say what you want about their music, but Nickelback has a) a sense of humor about themselves and b) amazing hair. And c) a tender, gentle, loving way with goats. Also, you gotta love that dramatic musical cue at the mention of – no! – an online petition. Even Dave Coulier can't solve that.
Heads up to the weak! Seth Rogen joins The Leagueas Dirty Randy in the season premiere, finally putting a face to the heretofore unseen scumbag friend of Jason Mantzoukas's Rafi. "It's official! Dirty Randy will be played by Seth Rogen this season on @theleaguefx," Paul Scheer tweeted on Saturday. Creator Jeff Schaffer explained, "As the legend of Dirty Randy grew among our fans — is that Dirty Randy? Is that a shot of Dirty Randy? — we realized we really have to step up here. We started talking about who the funniest people we know who aren't on the show already, and [Rogen] was at the [...]
Paul Scheer's NTSF:SD:SUV::, or National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::, premieres on Adult Swim on July 21, unless the terrorists win first. Based off a faux commercial aired during Childrens Hospital as all good shows soon will be, NTSF:SD:SUV:: follows a government task force charged with protecting San Diego, as it faces attack from those who hate our freedom/deep-water harbors.
Joining Scheer is Rebecca Romjin, Kate Mulgrew, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael, Martin Starr and Rob Riggle as President of the Navy. "This team of highly trained operatives has only one job: saving your ass so you can drive your Prius and see [...]
Paul Scheer provided a diary of his trip to the Super Bowl to Entertainment Weekly. A sample entry: "7:12 p.m. The stadium gets special glow stick training so we don’t mess up the halftime show. The pressure is on! We can’t let down Taboo and the rest of the Peas!"
When I spoke to Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, there was a lot of discussion of their old UCB days. Here is a clip from an old news story from those days and it's a really fun watch. The highlight has to be the interview with Zach Woods talking about how UCB is such a refuge from high school (HIGH SCHOOL!!!): "I'm not a huge fan of high school but I'm a huge fan of this," from the mouths of babes, literally. There is also a lot of Amy Poehler, Horatio Sanz in jean shorts, a crew-cut-possessing Rob Riggle, and Paul Scheer referencing a Palm Pilot. Hop [...]
This week’s series isn’t new. It’s not cutting edge or avant-garde. It doesn’t star two young comedic upstarts just beginning to make their ways onto the scene.
Six years ago, it was all of these things.
Since 2005, “Shutterbugs” writers and stars, Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel have taken their respective comedic brands forth, from the web’s tiny screen to MTV sketch show Human Giant (where “Shutterbugs” made the transition to TV), NBC and Cartoon Network hit sitcoms, and wide-release feature films. And, so what? So, they’re famous and good and funny. So, what’s the point of writing about them or a series that’s a grandparent to the just-now-super-popular [...]
Adult Swim's NTSF:SD:SUV:: premieres Thursday, July 21 at 12:15am (confusing, since then it's actually tomorrow, yes? CLOCKS AM I RIGHT YOU GUYS?) following Children's Hospital. In an interview over at HuffPo, Paul Sheer discussed NTSF's upcoming guest stars, explaining "We got Jeff Golblum, and he was the best, so amazing. And then there's, like, the bad guy from Karate Kid! He plays the bad guy in our show. Peter Serafinowicz, who played Darth Maul [in Star Wars], he saw the original trailer and wanted to be involved. So we were like, "Why don't we just have him be the voice of the robot?" So he plays the [...]
Look at those guys – so great, so pretend serious ("Why so serious?" – Joker, R.I.P.). Paul Scheer posted this picture from the New Orleans set of Hell Baby, the Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant written and directed horror comedy. Lennon and Garant play priests called upon to exorcise Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb's haunted house. Scheer and Huebel probably play cops or strippers or costume salesmen. The cast also includes Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel & Oates) and Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and generally seems like the best. If you're in New Orleans, please go hang out with them and report back. Scheer recounted on his [...]
Looks like fictional San Diego will stand yet another day, now that NTSF:SD:SUV snagged a second season on Adult Swim. The first season finale of the police procedural spoof aired last night, while filming for the second season is set to begin early next year. "I'm very excited to continue to punch, shoot, stab and run people over with Lawnmowers and get paid for it," lead Paul Scheer said in a statement. Me too! Plus mine's all under the table since it's mob money. Oh Jesus, why did I write that? Thank god no one in the Mafia can read.
Here's a new trailer for NTSF: SD: SUV::, Paul Scheer's new CSI parody coming to Adult Swim next Thursday night at 12:15. It looks awesome and ridiculous. So many explosions, both of fire and body parts! Guns! The ripping out of hearts! Eyepatches! Paul's wig! And a pretty stellar cast tying it all together! I'm on board.
