Welcome to this week's installment of "Making Friends", where we highlight our newest friends in the DCC4N fold.
Today i would like to introduce you to GWU's ReceSs, the oldest college comedy troupe in DC (established 1991). Recently they picked four new members and they are: Emily Murphy, Jen Gilmour, Corin Michalski and Kabeer Parwani.
In addition, their favorite alumni, TJ Miller, is gearing up for the release of ABC's carpoolers for which this was said about him: "Jerry O'Connell (the poor man's Steve Guttenberg) is among the stars, but the show is stolen by potential comic discovery T.J. Miller as an overgrown mama's boy who lives at home, fears employment and spends the day watching reruns in his underpants" -Washington Post. Link from The Apiary.
Also, to celebrate for all this amazing news, they have released a new video Our Constitutional Values: Option C
I don't care what anyone says about highschool and college comedy. When i was at George Mason we produced comedy of the highest standards. Just ask Nick. He co-wrote "Frenchies Chasing Geese." Plus, when you have long lasting institutions like GWU's ReceSs and UMD's Erasable, Inc. you are bound to start seeing familiar faces from these troupes on your T.V. screens. It is just good business, like "Frenchies Chasing Geese."
