Back to Back Episodes – Jordan Peele, Michaela Watkins, & Jessica Griffin!
I hope you have you seat belt strapped on tight for this one, because it’s going to be a wild ride! We’ve got a LIVE! from the Future first coming up next Tuesday, June 30: TWO EPISODES IN ONE NIGHT!
First up we’ve got the very funny Jordan Peele of MADtv! New York native, Jordan Peele, recently ended his 5 year role as a cast member on the sketch comedy show, MADtv. During his time on the show Jordan became one of the primary contributing writers and enjoyed the freedom to use his imagination. He also did a number of side projects: a movie with Ike and Dave Chappelle (which unfortunately was never released), a cameo in the Weird Al Yankovic video “White and Nerdy,” and even a guest appearance on “Celebrity Poker Showdown” with fellow “MADtv” cast member Keegan-Michael Key. To this day, Jordan still gets a kick out of people who recognize him as “that guy from ‘MADtv'” or “that guy from the Weird Al video.”
Stuart Paap will also welcome up-and-coming actress, Jessica Griffin! She’s got some great stories to share with the audience, quite possibly involving Bruce Springsteen, a Hip-Hop dance lesson, and some Shakespeare. Don’t want to give too much away though…
On Episode 2, which will start at 12am EST // 9pm PST, we’ve got, drumroll please….. SNL’s newest cast member, Michaela Watkins!! Michaela Watkins was born in Syracuse, NY and raised in Boston. She’s an alum of The Groundlings in Los Angeles. She has also appeared on CBS’ sitcom “The New Adventures of Old Christine” for a three-episode arc, playing the patient/girlfriend of Matthew Kimble, played by Hamish Linklater. Michaela is very excited about her new job as a cast member on NBC’s Saturday Night Live and we are so excited to welcome her!
Jessie Schneiderpants will be on vacation, but we’ve got the exciting Andrea Ball filling in on the IM desk! Andrea is a staff writer for VidOpp and Tubefilter. She started her own company Lux New Media, where she produces her own web series.
This is going to be an epically funny night on Live From the Future! We are brimming with comedic talent, it might be too funny. Make sure you’ve got your diaper on because you might just pee a little.
Drop your questions on the message board for any of our THREE lovely guests!
TUNE IN Live at 8pm PST/ 11pm EST Tuesday June 30th on TheStream.TV. We’re in widescreen now!
