Gigi Talk On Telephone?


It's Wednesday, and that means there's another episode of Gigi for you.  And what is that foreign rapscallion up to this time?  Well today, Gigi will be dabbling in the game of telephone and the game of love - though, I'm not sure if he knows he is doing either.  What a lovable guy!

So dig in and check out this slam-bang episode!  And if you're new to the series, watch how it all began HERE.

O-kay?  O-KAY!!!


420!!

Holla at ya boy DannyMoney, ladies and gents: it's 420 and you know what that means!

So I'm assuming some of y'all will be getting a little silly today?  A little goofy?  High as a kite?  Well if you are, My Damn Channel has a whole bunch of videos - well, the entire site, really! - that'll get you laughing on this special day that comes but once a year (just because YOU celebrate every day doesn't mean it's 420 year round!).  Here are a few of my favs:


- Not only is today 420, but a new episode of Gigi: Almost American premiered, which you can watch RIGHT HERE.  I love me some pig dog!


HERE'S a wacky video from the master, Andy Milonakis.  It never fails to crack me up, mostly because it's so damn idiotic, which I consider possibly the HIGHEST compliment I can give.


- And while you're at it, why not watch the entire 10 episode series of Horrible People.  Sit back and let it ride!  This is seriously one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.  Probably due to the fact that it was written and directed by A.D. Miles, currently the head writer on The Jimmy Fallon Show. 

Word up!

Book of Mormon Sweepstakes

So if you're here on My Damn Channel reading this blog, then you're OBVIOUSLY in the top 1% of cultured Americans, fingers no doubt coated with ink from the latest New York Times book review, the scent of a well-aged Malbec still lingering in your nostrils from last night's upscale wine tasting.

Gigi goes all in

Got cash??? In this episode, Gigi finds himself in a high stakes game of poker with a trio of new "friends." Like the card shark that he is, he's down to go all in. Watch it here.

If you're new to Gigi, you can catch up on Episode 1 and Episode 2.

New episodes every Wednesday!


Josh Gad, reviewed

Hopefully by now you've had a chance to Speak, Learn English and Donate Good Cause with everyone's favorite new cousin from the old world, Gigi. And surely you've heard about the new Broadway hit "The Book of Mormon," from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, which just happens to star one Mr. Josh Gad, the man behind Gigi.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Josh "may be giving the single funniest, most endearing performances on Broadway." And Variety says Josh plays his part "with a nervous cackle and the gentility of a young John Belushi." Not too shabby coming from two of entertainment reporting's most enduring and respected publications.

Want to hear what Josh has to say about getting involved in "The Book of Mormon?" Then check out his interview in this Entertainment Weekly interview.

But maybe you don't live near Broadway, or can't get tickets. Don't worry, 'cause Josh is here on My Damn Channel every week as Gigi. So tell your friends, tell your family, and tell your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..


The Book of Mormon on ABC News




The headline of ABC's video reads, "South Park Creators Invade Broadway" with a subheadline of "Jake Tapper chats with the creators of Broadway's show, The Book of Mormon." I'd add a sub-subheadline to say that Jake Trapper is a South Park superfan, and that he's living out his dream of interviewing Matt and Trey. Robin Roberts even punks him out at the beginning of this video about what a fanboy he is.
 
But can you blame him?

South Park has been a hit for years and preview showings of The Book of Mormon are blowing minds. John August, writer of the movie Big Fish and Corpse Bride, recently tweeted, "BOOK OF MORMON is as good as everyone raves. Envy is the most sincere form of flattery." And check out this from Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller - Teller and I are at intermission at our old broadway theater watching The Book of Mormon. It may be the greatest thing I've ever seen."

It's time for us to stop being modest! We have the star of The Book of Mormon, Josh Gad, launching a new show called Gigi: Almost American THIS WEDNESDAY! 3/23. March 23rd, 2011!

A day that will live in infamy. 

Until then, watch the promos and trailer and spread the word.


Gigi Premieres March 23


Our pal Josh Gad is, as they say, blowin' up big time, with supporting roles in big-budget Hollywood melodramas and a co-lead role in the new Broadway hit The Book of Mormon, the latter of which is currently making the critics swoon, Outer Darkness be damned.  And Josh will also be on the Today Show tomorrow morning, Saturday March 19th, to further his Gadian agenda.  So set your alarm, wake up early, and tune in to NBC.

If that wasn't enough, Josh is set to unleash the final prong of his multilevel media-domination masterplan next week in the form of Gigi: Almost American, which premieres right here on My Damn Channel next week, starting March 23. 

Part Borat, part Latka Gravas, and all Gad, Gigi is the befuddled, accident-prone outsider lurking inside all of us: earnest, well-meaning, and utterly clueless.  So stop by next Wednesday, grab a pig dog, roll down your windows, and howl at the moon.


A Holy Quadrinity - Josh, Jon, Matt, and Trey



Holy snaps! Check out our boy, Josh Gad - star of our upcoming series Gigi: Almost American, "on" The Daily Show last night! Okay, so Matt and Trey from South Park were really the guests; there to talk about their new Broadway musical The Book Of Mormon. But Josh was about as on as you can be without being there in person (check him out behind Matt and Trey, singing like a champ). Plus he's been on The Daily Show as a correspondent so no need to split hairs here anyway. 

Matt and Trey got some pretty high praise from their Comedy Central counterpart. I won't spoil what Mr. Jon Stewart had to say, you can check it out for yourself. Actually, you need to hear it for yourself because it'd probably sound like I was making it up if I told you because when I say "high praise", I mean it was downright biblical (pun intended, suckas!). 

Episodes of Gigi: Almost American launch 3/23, but you can get your fix now with the trailer and promos NOW.  


My Damn Channel Sees God and Others at "The Book of Mormon"

We saw God last night (and others) at "The Book of Mormon" - the funniest, most original musical comedy on Broadway.

The show stars Josh Gad, our My Damn Channel brother & hero & the star of our newest comedy series, "Gigi: Almost American."

We're previewing Gigi now, created by Josh and The Lost Nomads. Our series launches 3/23. New episodes every Wednesday on My Damn Channel.

I decided not to read all the Mormon press or ask Josh all about the show before experiencing it fresh. This was such an orgasmic comedic masterpiece. Get tickets and see this for yourself. And we'll buy more and give them away like Santa, or the other guy.

"Mormon" was created by South Park's Matt Stone & Trey Parker with Avenue Q's Robert Lopez. We had insane comic heaven hangtime during and after the show with them all last night... along with The Pope: Jon Stewart; "Mormon" producer and show business Midas: Scott Rudin; the Head of Comedy Central and MTV Networks Entertainment Group: Doug Herzog; Iconic Legends Mike Nichols and Angelica Huston; our friends and heroes from IFC: Dan Pasternack & Debbie DeMontreux; and we even met Spock: Zachary Quinto

"The Pope" proves every time year after year that he's one of the most generous humans in the game. We were so stunned to see Mike Nichols, I couldn't imagine lame bla-bla and went to a spontaneous salute - which he returned!

We capped off the night and the cocktails with da man of the year, Josh Gad, eating 2am style pizza reminding us all of why we love the voodoo we do. God bless.
