DJ Javerbaum, former Daily Show head writer and Twitter’s TheTweetOfGod, brought Stephen on board as a staff writer for the Fusion network’s Good Morning Today, filmed on the Jim Henson lot with Henson digital puppets. I visited the lot one day, and what they did with the live-action, capture, digital, futuristic puppets was really amazing. Featuring Diablo Cody, Conan O’Brian, Ken Jeong, Weird Al and more.
Also, I snuck a granola bar from the craft services table. Just saying.
The first single from the upcoming 2776 is here! Toymageddon stars Yo La Tengo, Ira Glass and Eugene Mirman.
2776 is an epic music/comedy album by The Levinson Brothers and their friend and frequent collaborator, Rob Kutner.
Winning first place in Manischewitz’ Thanksgivikkah video contest wasn’t easy, but Joel did what it took to make it happen. In this case, “doing what it took” meant donning a dreidel costume and battle-rapping a turkey.

Stephen produced & edited this promo, working with writer/director Michael Showalter. The only videos more successful for 92Y Tribeca are those containing an arguing Christopher Hitchens, which, let’s face it, is like Youtube crack for liberals, so basically impossible to compete against.
Joel pretty much invented the career of video contest winning. The New York Times covered it here.
