Kirstin Eggers, Kate Reinders and Liz Brown.

I’m pleased to announce that “The Body Hour” is no longer a stage sketch. It’s a real live YouTube video! Kirstin Eggers and I wrote this one at The Groundlings and she happens to know a fabulous director (Andy Viner) and cinematographer (Chuck DeRosa) that made it look friggin’ amazing! Special thanks to our model Jodi (Kate Reinders). And yes, we’re all still trying to wipe off this 99 Cents Only store lotion six weeks after shooting.

But wait! There’s more! Well, not yet, but there are a whole bunch of videos in various stages of production that I’m pretty psyched to be a part of coming down the pipe. Subscribe to Horseshoe Comedy on YouTube now to stay updated on our latest releases and check out “The Body Hour” below:

Sentras and Sizzle-Lean: 7 Things That Changed Before the “Breaking Bad” Pilot Ever Aired

Breaking Bad

 

As the world prepares to feast on this weekend’s “Breaking Badseries finale, many are praising creator Vince Gilligan for delivering what may turn out to be the most celebrated, well-executed story arc in the history of television. He seems to have known absolutely everything that was going to happen, and has yet to drop the ball on a single twist or turn, leading some to believe he truly did have the entire story worked out on day one.

But, as Walt said in the pilot episode, chemistry isn’t just the study of matter, “it’s the study of change.” And there were plenty of things in the original script that became something else entirely. Here are the seven biggest abandoned ideas Gilligan wrote into the original pilot script. They’ll blow your mind harder than a snort of “the blue stuff.”

Here I am, just another American idiot.

Here I am, just another American idiot.

I am truly honored to play one of the ignorant morons in the latest episode of the hottest web series on Earth right now: “Ask A Slave.”

Azie Marie Dungey got a gig playing a historical slave character giving tours at George Washington’s home Mount Vernon. The real questions she was asked by real live American idiots will blow your mind. I’m in the episode featured below, but you can watch the whole series on YouTube here

Knit Fit: A Terrible Photo of Me and My Family

In All in the Family on August 13, 2013 at 1:15 pm

After my grandmother spent a year making us gigantic matching sweaters, my sister, two cousins and I sat for what the four of us resoundingly agree is the worst picture ever taken of any of us. And yes. I am growing out my bangs. Thanks for noticing!

Liz Brown in “Anchored” at The Groundlings Theater

In Groundlings Theater, Howard Stern, Videos on August 6, 2013 at 8:00 pm

I wrote and performed this in my Advanced show at the amazing Groundlings Theater in October 2012. It features the awesome Jennifer Winters and Andrew Delman on voiceover. If you’re a Howard Stern Show fan, you may recognize the hottie in the final slide as Benjy Bronk’s “Online Sweetheart” Elisa Jordana.

Dear Rolling Stone: Controversial articles are fine. Shitty reporting isn’t.

In Rants on July 17, 2013 at 8:01 pm

Rolling Stone’s “insightful” article is basically a collection of pasted together news reports from three months ago with ZERO new insights into what would make someone act like a truly evil shithead. It does quote a lot of people saying that they always had trouble pronouncing his name. A lot of them. So, that’s helpful.

It also includes THIS amazing, Pulitzer Prize worthy investigative reporting: “Much of what is known about the two years of Jahar’s life leading up to the bombing comes from random press interviews with students at UMass Dartmouth, none of whom seemed to have been particularly close with Jahar.”

If you’re going to break a bunch of people’s hearts by featuring a terrorist on the cover of your magazine in the name of journalistic integrity, you should probably make it a pretty fucking good article. And NOT one that ends with the line “nobody knows what he was crying about.” You were supposed to find out what he was crying about and tell us. Congrats Rolling Stone. You’re basically the new “Examiner.com”.‪#‎Fail‬

Liz Brown’s Comedy Reel

Is it a “comedy reel”? Or are you supposed to call it an “acting reel”? But there’s writing in there too. I don’t get it.

Anyway, here it is!

 

 

The Best Photo from My Wedding

In My Life and Shit on June 30, 2013 at 3:30 pm

LIZ AND DEE DEE

It’s my wedding anniversary. I don’t deserve my husband. No,…I’m not saying that coyly. I literally DO NOT DESERVE him. He’s nice to me ALL the time, even when I’m an asshole, which is most of the time.

In a pathetic Paula Deen style statement of victimization, I’d like to submit Exhibit A, the above photo, featuring me and my grandmother on my father’s side. During this dizzingly happy night at sickeningly quaint country inn in Vermont, she pulled me aside to let me know that my dancing wasn’t up to par, and that I wasn’t keeping time with the music.

OK, first of all,…I’m an AMAZING dancer. Like,…AMAZING. Almost TOO good.

Secondly, I was wearing a 100 pound dress with a cathedral train.

Thirdly, what the FUCK Dee Dee??? (Everyone calls my Grandmother Dee Dee)

Fourthly: No wonder my entire family is so fucked up.

Fifthly: God bless my wedding photographer, who was a photojournalist and shot my entire wedding for free. Granted, we didn’t get a great posed classic picture of my husband and I TOGETHER on our wedding day, but we got this, which is (arguably) better. There is nothing I love more than a photo that captures a real moment.

I can’t afford a shrink anymore, but Tom Petty is a high quality substitute:
