If You’ve Ever Thought, “Man, I’d Love to See Michael Hartney in a Sketch Show”, Then Boy, oh Boy, Is December 4th Ever Your Night!
First at 8pm, I play a Ghostbusters-loving tourist, an office worker, a serial killer, and a terrible father in Spoiler Alert: This Is A Sketch Show. Caitlin Bitzegaio has written some of my favorite sketches ever, and with a cast including Lauren Adams, Timothy Dunn, Matt Fisher, Dru Johnston, and Natasha Rothwell, it’s pretty no-joke. Only there’s tons of jokes. Funny ones.
Interesting side note: there are two gay men in the cast, and neither of them are the best twerker.
Then, at 9:30 pm: I play a very happy man, my father, an extremely friendly bigot, a sword-wielding Planet Hollywood waiter, and an unflappably untalented musical theatre actor. Ten Men: A Two Man Character Show is a real labor of love for me and its co-creator, Justin Tyler. Brandon Gulya directed this bad boy with a sure hand and we’d really love to keep this show going. So come check it out!

Here’s the official trailer for A New McDonald’s, a feature length movie that was entirely written, shot, edited, scored, and screened in one day.
I got to act in this ridiculousness (you can see me being super dramatic a couple times in this trailer) and it was one of the most fun things I’ve ever been a part of. The whole thing is hilarious, absurd, and also weirdly inspiring. Go here to learn more about the whole project.
Can’t wait for this thing to be unleashed on the world!
Hi friends, this is the trailer for an insane project that could’ve failed so easily because it had so many moving parts and so little time. I’m glad I was part of it. It fulfills the ultimate desire of this community: To make what we love with friends… so many friends!
Anyone who was at the premiere knows how electric it felt, when the cram guys announced the movie was ready, a few minutes before the deadline (midnight) everyone cheered of true happiness and the smiles did not stop flowing until past 5am at McManus.
Having about 70 different hilarious comedians play the same four-ish characters was incredible because the choices were all hilarious proving THERE ARE NOT WRONG CHOICES! Just bringing your funny is all we needed all along.
Here’s the trailer for “A New McDonald’s.” Check it out, pass it on! More info at http://www.sketchcram.com/moviecram.
I am THRILLED that I got to play a part in this dumb, weird, amazing thing.
This group of people just wrote a feature-length comedy film in 12 hours. Right now 20 directors and 70 actors are preparing to shoot and edit it, and tonight at UCB Theatre (Chelsea) at midnight, we’ll premiere it. Come check out Movie Cram, it’s going to be amazing.
THIS IS NUTS. COME.
