Cosmos
As you may have heard, Fox is rebooting Carl Sagan’s classic miniseries “Cosmos” later this week. In preparation, let’s revisit this “Cosmos” reboot I wrote with Patrick Cassel's for College Humor a couple years ago. Josh Ruben's Sagan impersonation is nothing short of scientifically astounding.

Well this was exciting. 
I just watched "The Wolf of Wall Street" and discovered comedian Thomas Middleditch makes a memorable appearance as one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s employees. A couple years ago I got Middleditch to play Chazz, an animated bird, in a cartoon I directed for College Humor (below). Now he’s being directed by Martin Scorsese!  Expect to see him in many more movies. Congrats, Thomas!

DRUNK DIAL #2 
Listen to another boozy phone call from Jon Gabrus in the middle of the night, in this cartoon I directed for CollegeHumor.

GAME OF THRONES WISH FULFILLMENT 
a new cartoon I animated for College Humor.
Spoilers? Who even knows anymore.

College Humor Bros 
Yesterday I was over at College Humor for the recording session of a new cartoon series. When you’re sitting at a mic’d table with (from left)  Sam Reich, Streeter Seidell, Jeff Rubin and Josh Ruben it’s kind of like being locked inside a tiger cage if the tigers were extremely funny at improvisational dialogue. I was laughing tears and you will be too when you see the result.

KARATE KID 2 (WITH CHAZZ)
An oldie but a goodie.

CARL SAGAN’S FICTIONAL COSMOS
Decade of Distraction - #23 of 101

I’m seeing ‘Prometheus’ tonight so my mind is totally on alien planets at the moment.
In this cartoon I made last year, Sagan (played uncannily by Josh Ruben) looks at some of the less terrifying planets of sci-fi. 

(New Cartoon!) TEENAGE POLAR BEAR CAM
Decade of Distraction - #20 of 101 

I animated this lil’ animal fable for College Humor. Starring and written by Streeter and Kevin Corrigan with Jenny Jaffe, Emily Axford, and Patrick Cassels 

THE PHANTOM THROUGHOUT HISTORY
Decade of Distraction - #18 of 101 

I got to animate the epically unethical life of College Humor’s recurring immortal villain, played by Streeter Seidell. I enjoyed the hell out of this one because I’m a history nerd. Sarah has gone on to be a writer for SNL!

NEW CARTOON: “The Avengers”

Here’s a brand-new one I made for College Humor just in time for the premier of Marvel’s “The Avengers” movie. You won’t believe your ears when you hear the Samuel L. Jackson impersonation…
Starring: Karr Washington, Josh Ruben, Brian Murphy, and Lacy Wittman
Additional animation by Josh Weisbrod

JAKE AND AMIR: Would You Rather?
I did all the little animated shots in this College Humor starring Jake and Amir (who’s now in Harold and Kumar 3!)
