New Video

It's been a while since I posted a "Nick Gibbons' Players" video. If you're new to the blog, these are sketches I shoot, edit, and star in all by myself in my apartment in just a couple of hours. I usually try to do them if I have a free day without anything going on.

This new one is a character bit I've wanted to do on stage for a long time. This one was tough to pull off, it has a lot of set up, and I don't think I got it quite right in this clip, but I think the potential is there and I think it actually might go over better live.

Anyway here it is, sorry it's such bad quality, You Tube sucks balls these days as far as video quality is concerned.

It ain't the best one, but it's cute. I just had a brain fart on a much better way to pull this bit off, start the bit with a news anchor talking about this guy and how he was tortured in his parents basement. Do it real seriously, then end it with his stand up routine. BAM, GOLD! That's why I get paid the big bucks, and in my world "Big Bucks" actually means no money at all.

I have a lot of these type of character bits, which I am now calling my "Failed Stand Up Comedian Bits". Maybe I'll shoot a couple of more of them.

Now it's time for random pics. First up the pumpkins me and the little woman carved for All Hallows Eve.

Next up a pic of the little doggy we dog sat last weekend, Cleetus.

Here she is giving me her famous, "What the hell is your problem" face. Priceless.

While we were in New York, we passed a theater playing Nick and Norahs Infinite Play List. I told Nancy to snap a pick of the name Nick as it came around on the revolving markie. She did a bang up job I think. Narcissist 1/Humble 0.

Why is Cleetus looking accusingly at the camera-- what did you do to her?

What didn't I do to her?
