I'm so confused - is that really him? I just kind of assumed it was a joke.


The buzz seems to be that it is him and, you know, willingly associating with the founder of the Proud Boys to the point that it shows up in your imdb l doesn't really do anything to dispel that.

Yes.  He was a writer and occasional performer on the show

Although not calling it verified, Snopes has a lot of anecdotal evidence from people who know the guy or otherwise in the biz.

It really is a classic sketch. I kinda want to see outtakes of the interns and production assistants crawling around picking up all of those thimbles, over and over again.

At last check, Snopes has it unproven, although noting "A number of Johnston's television peers, however, have posted messages on social media claiming that the actor truly attended the riot."

TIL.  Had forgotten about that sketch, too.  Might be even better than the Pre-taped Call-in Show.


IIRC, both of those scripts were written (or co-written) by Dino Stamatopoulos (Starburns from Community), who, IIRC, was also one of the bigger hallucinogen enthusiasts on the show. Which makes a whole lot of sense if you think about it.

Watch that Tankerbell clip I posted.
It's hilarious and you're on the pol tab.

It's Bob Odenkirk/Breaking Bad's Saul Goodman behaving like an insurrectionist/McConnell anarchist who talks obscenely and the sketch was made long before 2016.

Really? Andy and Ollie? They're so annoying.


I think they're great. 

All the characters would be annoying in real life, except maybe for Bob. Maybe it's not your thing.

I've heard of the concept of people being "face blind", but until the internet happened I'd never run across anyone who was.
That's not Jay.

Totally agree. That one and The Story of Everest broke every rule of sketch comedy, and remain classic.
They're both brilliant.


NO ONE HELP HIM!

Odenkirk also wrote the first Matt Foley sketch at second city, if I recall.
