Tittererer’s Digest |75| feat. Seth
Hello, It’s me, Alan. It’s very late, I’ll probably rewrite this before it goes live and if not then hey, we gave it a shot right? The world is a vampire, Sasquatch,Godzilla, King Kong, Loch Ness, Goblin, Ghoul, a zombie with no conscience and we’re all just keeping on. Actual nazis on the radio, that’s fun. Glad that’s happening. Definitely only positive outcomes from those developments. Anyway, here are some videos including Seth, Earliest Show, Long Dark Twenties, and a special edition of Bee Movie.

Probably the less you know about Seth before you watch it the better. It’s won lots of awards and been in lots of festivals. It’s been online for five months but Hannah Mamalis (who you should see doing standup, she’s very good) recommended it to me yesterday and I want to pay it forward to you, the small group of comedy nerds who I’ve been informed read Tittererer’s Digest. It was written and directed by Zach Lasry and stars Logan George and Emmett Smith. That’s it, I’m telling you nothing else. Watch it.

John Creedon is a good comic actor you guys. I saw him in a sketch last year about a Cork Secession Army in the Cork-based sketch show Sketch! and thought to myself “John Creedon is a good comic actor you guys”. The last time I had that thought was when I saw a young ginger man in a sketch show called Your Bad Self. That ginger man’s name? Domhnall Gleeson. I’ve got the eye for talent. John Creedon, one to watch.
Also this has Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh, Dave Fanning, Karl Spain, Kevin McGahern, and was written and directed by your fav and mine, Dangerfarm aka Diarmuid O’Brien.
That Jon Creedon though, wow.
3. Long Dark Twenties

We mentioned Long Dark Twenties a few Digests ago. Since then the final two episodes of season one have “dropped” so here’s the whole thing in a handy playlist. It’s v good and funny and visually inventive and we’re looking forward to season two and seeing what Kelly Shatter, Luke Benson, and Kevin Handy come up with next.
4. The entire bee movie but every time they say bee it gets faster
Ok, so there was a video that was just the entire bee movie but every time they say bee it gets faster and it was seven minutes long and you start watching it and it keeps getting faster and you think “ok, it’s speeding up but we’re still quite early into the film” and then suddenly it goes into hyperdrive and it’s over. So there WAS a video like that but between me writing this TD last night and coming back to hit Publish this morning, it’s been removed. RIP The entire bee movie but every time they say bee it gets faster, you’re with the bee angels now.
5. The Earliest Show – Bargaining with Jane Levy

The Earliest Show is still my absolute favourite thing and I’ll keep posting it until it finishes or until Ben Schwartz is Batman and Lauren Lapkus is Queen of the World
And that’s it! Some good stuff right? Hope you liked some of it. There’ll be a new Juvenalia tomorrow as well so that’s exciting.
