“Paul Scheer and I made a comedy special on a moving bus. A lot of people got killed of course.”
That’s what Rob Huebel says, but of course, the name of their weekly comedy showcase at the UCB Theatre in Hollywood is called CRASH TEST. And so, too, is this special they filmed on a party bus that rolled through Los Angeles. It’ll be available exclusively on Vimeo on Aug. 18.
Roll the trailer, er party bus, trailer of the party bus!
Show description: “It’s a fast-paced improvised ride with standup on the street, an “exclusive” tour of celebrities homes, and a break-in on the Paramount Lot. This special features some of Hollywood’s biggest comedians, including Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation, This Is The End), Rob Corddry (Ballers, Children’s Hospital), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Safety Not Guaranteed), Natasha Leggero (Another Period, Neighbors), Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant (Reno 911, Night at the Museum), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and musical guest Earl Sweatshirt (Odd Future).”
Huebel stated, “We were worried about lawsuits. But that didn’t keep us from getting sued a lot” Scheer added “This is ‘The Expendables’ of comedy specials and by that I mean everyone is on steroids.”
Crash Test will be available for $3.99 on Vimeo on Aug. 18.
