Hey guys! SO, The Netflix series won’t return until the fall, but TOMORROW NIGHT at The PIT Loft (154 W 29 ST), my sketch comedy team, Horse Club, gives you a "Stranger Things" fix… in the form of a short romantic comedy centered around Barb and the Demogorgon!

nEW Valentine's Day Parody Video! "Mad and BOUJEE"

February 10, 2016

Valentine's Day is next week. For some people, it's a day they look forward to, filled with lots of love and joy. For others, like our boy Eric in the video, it's usually a day filled with much regret and disappointment. Never living up to expectations. ESPECIALLY the expectations of a boujee girlfriend. And what do you get when you cross that kind of girl and a hit song by Migos? Why, you get our latest video "Mad And Boujee." Directed by Adam Hada and starring Chanel Carroll and Eric Lockley. Enjoy! Happy Valentines Day!

My new parody video dropped today!!!!! 

 

I think we can all agree that Michelle Obama has done some pretty cool stuff in her time as First Lady. Some people have even said that she should run for President someday. Well, I personally think Michelle, or Mo as I like to call her, has an opinion on that, which she'd like to tell you to the beat of "Ain't Your Mama" by Jennifer Lopez. And without further ado, here is my new video "Michelle Obama (Parody of 'Ain't Your Mama')" Please comment, Like and most importantly, SHARE!
