Don’t listen to anything Bill Murray tells you – Ghostbusters 3 is happening! Or, uh, happened. I should know, because I spent my summer working on it. Fed up with waiting for Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd to get the band back together, I decided to assemble my own ghost bustin’ team, and here’s the fruits of our labor – Ghostbusters 3, live on YouTube this morning – written and directed by me, produced by Caitlin Brodnick, and featuring some of the funniest talent in all of New York City. Enjoy internet, happy Friday.

So, guess who has to go back to the State Supreme Court for day 2 of jury duty? This guy. Apologies that my blogging trends seemed to falter this week – between a sketch comedy show on Monday and jury duty on Thursday, I’ve been spending my week getting as much work done as possible before I had to go do my patriotic duty.
Sketch comedy show? What’s that Matt Fried? Yup folks, I was finally in one of those. It was directed by Kevin Allison of The State (for all you non-comedy nerds, it was a very popular alterna-comedy group in the mid-’90s; they had a show on MTV). Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I got to work with some really great up and coming writers and performers. Here’s one of the sketches I was in: a parody of Top Chef. Since this was a class show, keep in mind we produced it with no budget and 12 hours of rehearsal (or, one lost weekend). Plus, my British accent is fake (I know, you would’ve never guessed). More to come, enjoy!
I’d like to think this is the start of something big. Send me your credit card numbers now. Enjoy!
Due to a bad wifi connect, I’ll post this on YouTube later today.
The Matt Fried Hour, my late night talk show, returns Friday, January 23rd, 2009 at 10:30 p.m. to The UNDER St. Marks Theater. With my sidekick, Chris O’Neil, we interview the coolest New York celebrities, comedy’s up-and-comers, and the best music in the five boroughs.
And then, there’s mine and Chris’s classic chemistry.
