Interview: Friendly comedy from Good Neighbor
The Good Neighbor guys, as you may find them walking on your block. Photo courtesy the guys themselves.
Do you ever think to yourself: "man, I could really go for some good, wholesome sketch comedy". You know, sketches about imagination, pranking your gay (?) roommate, being retarded-but-not, celebrity babies having...babies...
If so, look no further than right next door, because Good Neighbor has what you're begging for. You might recognize these hilarious LA-based sketch comedians from one of their numerous shows around town, or perhaps their internet video hit about a pint-sized Jamie Lynn Spears.
Well, the guys are back and they've got a sequel to their smash video sensation, and it's as good (or better) than the last. Be sure to check it out, while we drop some knowledge from the fellas themselves.
So where did Good Neighbor get its start?
Beck: We all met in our first year at USC. Kyle, Nick and I were all selected into the school's sketch and improv group, Commedus Interruptus, and we became friends from there. Dave and Kyle were friends from high school and Dave would come to USC on the weekends to hang out and bring us 40's (big ol malt liquors). Come graduation, we decided to keep the group together so we formed Good Neighbor and went on tour and started putting up more and more videos.
Dave: I also brought weed.
Nick: One of the first nights I met Beck, I tried to tackle him in an intersection.
