The Stepfathers and Harvard Sailing Team Have 20 Thousand Dollars

This past weekend, The Stepfathers and Harvard Sailing Team won the first Friars Club Improv and Sketch Competition, netting themselves ten thousand dollars each in prize money. The two NYC groups successfully outperformed teams coming as far as Los Angeles for their shot at the jackpots.

But no one's racing to Kohl's for new jean shorts quite yet with all this FREE CASH--The Stepfathers and HST are required to use the money to make films that will premiere at the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival in September.  You can bet these guys' craft service tables will be overflowing with shrimp the size of hockey pucks until then.

Snakes Drop 'Not Ready to Die'

Billy and Adam are 'Snakes' | Album artwork: Tim Bierbaum

Somehow "comedy rap duo" doesn't quite fit for funny boys Adam Lustick & Billy Scafuri, aka "Snakes." Billy and Adam, who also perform weekly with Harvard Sailing Team, have been good pals for years and their flow definitely shows it. But more importantly, these two white boys share a deep-rooted respect for (and knowledge of) rap and hip-hop. They've got that love of the genre that has significantly altered their DNA. For several months, Snakes have been holding down some of those gritty, Saturady @midnight slots at UCB-NY. And during the recent New York Comedy Festival, Time Out gave 'em the hot nod most comedy-types dream about. Full disclosure, Billy and Adam are my boys -- and Billy is part of Team Librarianist here at The Apiary -- but give their mp3s a spin o' the thumb, and you'll hear that praise earned. Handily.

Ask For It By Name: Billy Scafuri for Mini Cooper

I think the MiniCooper needs to appear in another feature film starring Ed Norton and Marky Mark to regain its share of the little-car market, at least among Americans. Or they can just punch out a dozen more ads featuring longtime Apiary pal Billy Scafuri (Harvard Sailing Team). And while the Paulie Walnuts cameo feels a little shoe-horned in, I think they might have gotten more mileage (sorry) had he just reprised his famous Sopranos line: "He said the guy was an interior designer from Czechoslovakia!"
