ep.33 – Joey Thompson (Barry McGunthrie Jr.)

Barry McGunthrie Jr. is a Southern Man through and through. He is very devout, in fact, he is a backup preacher. While visiting LA to check out Dr. Phil, he decided to stop by and give the BitzBoiz a run for their money. He proposes a competition show for pastors. But, as always the question remains; will Jeremy and Nikhil buy the pitch? Or, will they let Mr. Gunthrie Jr. float on by?

 

Joey Thompson is a character actor famous for his character Barry McGunthrie Jr. that you can catch touring all over the country.

ep.32 – Mia Schauffler

Sprindy Carpenter is a tour guide from the Tillamook Cheese Factory. She is also a lover of jokes. She tells so many jokes you might assume she’s lying, but don’t. She’s only joking. Sprindy takes us on a wild of what’s real and what’s unreal. Her pitch is shrouded in mystery, but the bottom line is she thinks she would make a great show. But, as always the questions remains. Will Nikhil and Jeremy green light her project, or will they send her packing back to cheese-land.

Mia Schauffler is an incredible performer at the UCB theater. You can see her with Leroy on Harold night.

ep.31 – Andrew Grace

Dan Marvin is fresh off of the water and he’s got Sailor’s butt. For him it’s all about that “live aboard lifestyle” and he is proud of it. His pitch is salty and simple – get some people on a boat and see how the fair. The challenges are all boat related, but the drama is all about having the strength to live a boat-house life. But, as always the question remains – will the BitzBoiz green light this pitch, or will they give it the old sail-away?

Andrew Grace is an incredible UCB improviser currently performing on the Harold team City Hall. He is insane in the best possible way.

 

ep.30 – Mikey Stephens

Delmont Fimley operates from his office inside of his mom’s house (by choice). As a fellow inventor and business man Delmont approaches the BitzBoiz about a brand new reality show idea. Many of his inventions were stolen from him, but that doesn’t stop him from still inventing things like the plastic tips of shoe laces. All he needs is $100. For what? To pay up on the internet bill and buy a video game. No more. No less. As always the question still remains, will Jeremy and Nikhil green light this project, or will they give it the boot (sans laces).

Mikey Stephens is a hilarious improviser/comedian/actor in Los Angeles (and all around good guy). You can catch him on UCB Harold Night with Bitchin’.

ep.29 – Skot William Phillips II

Dean Colleto is stoned out of his mind. 420 – blazin’ – ready to pitch his reality television show. The “Dean Of Green” (because weed) pitches us a dank elimination show that basically boils down to ‘Survivor’ meets ‘Cheech and Chong’. You will enter sober and leave high as hell, my dude. Then again, the question still remains. Will Jeremy and Nikhil accept the show, or reject it straight away?

Skot William Phillips II is a Los Angeles based comedian known for his excellent improvised Law And Order show at UCB with his amazing team ‘Some Kind Of Monster’.

ep.28 – Ruman Kazi

Jordan is a hairstylist, but hobbies as a bowler. He hopes to marry his hobby with his search for love. Picture a bowling competition where those who improve the most at bowling win big- and by win big…we mean marry Jordan! But, will the idea survive the scrutiny of Jeremy and Nikhil? Will the Bitz Boiz give it the green-light? Or, will they toss it back into the sea of failed pitches?

ep.27 – Dennis Curlett

Lester (last name does not matter) is…how do we say this…a creep? He’s come to pitch a dating show in the vain of MTV’s Next, but with a bit of a twist. It’s a tough sell, but Lester’s a tough guy. But, as always the question remains. Do Jeremy and Nikhil bite on the pitch, or will they toss this one out with the garbage!

ep.26 – John Dardenne

Ralph Kackoo is a 19 year old who has read lots of screenwriting books. His pitch is basically Nun-springa, or Rumspringa for nuns.  Challenging nuns to a horny competition of faith. Sultry and scandalous. But, as always the question still remains. Will Jeremy and Nikhil buy the pitch, or will they give it the proverbial boot (as it were).

John Dardenne is a actor/improviser from Los Angeles who was recently seen on his UCB Mess Hall team PayDay. He also teaches at the LA Connection Comedy Theatre.

ep.25 – Alyssa Sabo

This is a BIG get for Jeremy and Nikhil. Lisa Frank came to pitch us a show even though it is rumored she has a movie coming out about her life. What an honor! Oh, and in case you didn’t know…Lisa Frank is the FOLDER LADY. But, just because she is an actual celebrity does NOT mean she gets a free pass. She must convince Jeremy and Nikhil

Alyssa Sabo is an amazing improviser, stand-up, sketch actress and all around hilarious personality. You can catch her at Totally Rad! w/ Alyssa Sabo at the UCB theater once a month.

ep.24 – Ari Grabb

G-Spider is a “clout coach” and trust us – he explains what this means. It’s all about Insta’ and brand life for Mr. Spider. He pitches a show that is basically coaching people into better clout, not unlike the Will Smith film Hitch but for clout. But as always, the questions still remains. Will the BitsBoiz pass on this pitch or will they green light it to success.

Ari Grabb is an visual artist, comedian, and all around good dude.

@ari_grabb

ep.23 – Conner McCabe

Clarence Shipworth is a SUPER nice guy. He is studying to be a youth pastor, but not quite there yet. He is pitching a show that is a little bit of Hard Knox and a little bit of Youth Group. Too vanilla? You be the judge. And, as always the question remains- will the BitsBoys green light the pitch or will they give it the old pas?

Conner McCabe is an incredible Los Angeles based improviser and comedian in and around UCB. He hosts TNT at the Clubhouse, and MACH at the Clubhouse.

ep.22 – Joe Feeney

Jody Watts doesn’t know reality shows. Now, does that mean he is going to be bad at pitching one? Well, how does America’s Greatest Dumps suite ya? That’s right. He pitches a show where we get up close and personal with America’s best dump-yards. Sound good? Well, the BitsBoiz have a thing or two to SAY about it. And, as always, the question still remains. Will they buy up the pitch or will they let it sail on by.

Joe Feeney is an American comedian and improviser. He can be seen around town performing with his team POWERLINE!

ep.21 – Eric Chad Ho

Beckhilda (the witch) knows a thing or two about manifesting your wishes. Like most wishes, she can do all kinds of tricks. Her pitches was incredibly magical. But as always, the question remains. Will Nikhil and Jeremy buy up that sweet reality-show pitch? Or, will they pass on it FOREVER?

Eric Cha Ho is quite simply hilarious. You can catch him around town doing hilarious improv all around Los Angeles. Just like…go to the Clubhouse on Vermont, right?

@ericchadho

ep.20 – Patrick Polsin

Scumpt Furst wants to be a big-shot guy. One way to become a big-shot guy here in Hollywood is to get a show on television. Scumpt Furst, Friend To All Animals is his proverbial meal ticket. This gentle hearted soul might swing himself a gentle hearted deal, but first the question remains. Will they green-light this pitch.

ep.19 – Alex Knight

Jeffry Roid is from New Mexico, and he has a LOT of pitches. Some would say he has too many pitches, not us. We say, he has just enough. Jeremy and Nikhil had lots to do on this tasty episode, but as always the question remains. Will they give it the green light, or will they pass on these pitches.

Alex Knight is an actor/comedian/improviser from Los Angeles. You can catch him at the Improv Space in Westwood.

ep.18 – Greg Smith

Today we hear a pitch from the legendary Daniel Plainview. No! Not THAT Daniel Plainview! The Daniel Plainview from Ann Arbour, MI. He is the choir director at his church, a real man of God, some might say. But as always, the question still remains. Will the Boys de la Bits pass on this holy opportunity, or will they bite this meaty delicious pitch.

ep.17 – Miranda Rae Hart

We have an ACTUAL CELEBRITY pitching to us today. It’s Miss Holly Golightly, from Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Her voice…OMG…that voice. Tis either the voice of a beloved angel or a shrew devil. You be the judge! But as always, the questions still remains. Will Jeremy and Nikhil, two men intrenched in bits, green-light this project? Or, will they give it the old boot?

ep.16 – Ben Goldsmith

Georgia Washington is a peach- the sweetest lady you’d ever meet. Her pitch is, however, not exactly the sweetest. Chasing Blimps a weight loss show that is just as insensitive as it sounds. But the question still remains; will the Bits-Boys green-light the project or give it the old pass.

Ben Goldsmith is an improviser at the Improv Space in Westwood.

ep.15 – Libby Doyne

Shirley Applebees. No relation. She has the sweet voice of a child. All she wants is a big fan. Her show pitch: Big Fan. But as always, the question still remains. Will Jeremy and Nikhil buy the show, or will they give it the old PASS?!

ep.14 – Anosh McAdam

Alan Prescott is the oldest man in the world. The. Oldest. Man. In. The. WORLD. And you might say, for better or worse, he is a man out of time. His idea are…a bit…old also. The Bitz Boyz have quite a conundrum. On the one hand, they could green light the project. Now, on the other hand, they could give it the old, “pass.” Will they? Won’t they? Find out!

ep.10 – Lawrence Marshalian

Henry Martin is a mechanic with a nagging EDGE FOR DRAMA. Do you think being a mechanic is interesting? Let me as you this…do you think being ALIVE is interesting? Well, Henry would ask the same question. Now, his pitch is solid, but will the Bits Boys buy this pitch or thumbs-it-down.

ep.9 – Scott Thiede

Oh, no! We accidentally took a pitch meeting from….a….MURDERER!!! Margerum Deli Legweak is a self proclaimed murderer of at least her husband, but maybe more! The Bitz Boyz sure did step in it this time. But as always, the questions remains. Will they buy the pitch, or will they send this murderer packin’?

ep.8 – Ben Cassil

The Bits-Boyz are hitting all time new lows with this one. Rick Steves comes in to pitch. That’s right, you heard correct, RICK STEVES. Things get HEATED. And as always, the questions still remains. Will they green-light the project, or will they give it the old “pass”?

ep.6 – Mick Wannenmacher

Drama! Drama! Drama! So much drama today with Nikhil and Jeremy. They take a pitch from Barry Waterbean; an 80s guy. And just like most 80s guys, he is very problematic. As always, the question remains. Will they green-light the project, or will they give it the old, “pass”.
