Ben Schwartz nails the “perfect audition”

Here's a funny video that has an accidentally funny timeliness to it, as Ben Schwartz improvised this bit about trying to nail down the "perfect audition" with Upright Citizen Brigade's Los Angeles artistic director Neil Campbell as his foil. This is all filmed at the UCB's LA theater. Roll the clip!

Of course, as it turns out, Schwartz already got the part! In a J.J. Abrams TV pilot, called Undercovers. And who wouldn't greenlight a J.J. Abrams TV pilot for production as a full-time primetime series? Only an idiot. And this pilot isn't for NBC, so congrats!
