Six months ago I got the opportunity to write a sketch with my good friend Avin Das for Funny or Die. The video stars Kris Humphries of the Brooklyn Nets. It was a blast to shoot and features a lot of funny people from the UCBT and PIT communities: Ken Beck, Zach Broussard, Mary Iampietro, Dave Bushnell, Mitchell Stephen Fesh, Tyler Gilmore, Suni Reyes, Greg Wilker, Jerry Emeka, and Brad Stuart. Check it out.
