"Hey Mike"

video

"Hey Mike" is an award winning short film that grew out of a comedy sketch, which was developed and performed live at The Groundlings and Second City LA. Shot in the early '90's, the bit still seems to hold up today...at least we think so. Note: Bob, who plays the lead in the bit, went by the "stage name" of Bob Destri, back then...he's not sure why.

Finding this made me happier than I can say. My friend and I saw this short years ago, and we still reference is relentlessly. It is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Thank you, sir for this creating this very fine film!

This little short film based on a character I created at the Groundlings and later preformed at Second City La, has really held up!
