Studio 8 has had the enviable pleasure of working with standup comedian Sean Patton for many years now.We’ve shot videos with him, we’ve written TV pilots with him, we’ve even performed onstage with him in various standup, sketch, and improv shows. Hell, next month, Terp is going on tour with Sean Patton and Kyle Kinane (view details of that HERE). Anyway, you may recognize Sean’s name and/or cute face as one of the brightest up-and-coming standup comedy dudes on the planet. I won’t delve into his impressive resume…that’s what his narcissistic website up above is for.
What I do want to talk about is the sad fact that you can’t watch most of the stuff we’ve produced with Sean over the years. Mostly that’s because many of the videos we’ve done with him were sold to websites like Break.com and we can’t use their video code in our website except as simple embeddings within posts. In other words, if you click on “Videos” up on our menu, all of what you see has been uploaded to YouTube and then integrated into the inner workings of our website (we love YouTube!). And since Break won’t allow us to upload the videos they bought from us onto other sites, they have to live forever in their old, shitty non-HD forms on sites like Break.
Until now. I went ahead and uploaded the videos in question to Vimeo and below you will find them embedded in slightly higher quality, along with all the other videos that we’ve put up on YouTube (which are also not really in great HD form because many of the videos weren’t shot in HD).
