My comedy partner—improv pro Molly Wilbanks from iOWest—and I are solidly in preproduction for our new webseries “Helen & Grace.” Helen and Grace love CrossFit…they just don’t want to work out that hard. And so they come up with very creative ways to get around the demands of what’s capable of creating and crowning the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth. They’ll never make it to the Games at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, but they would be worthy of a Reebok sponsorship for their ability to modify. Watch them on Funny or Die and YouTube next month when they land! We’ve got Ryan Lagod and Craig Tovey as our director and DP and Andy Crocker as our casting director, along with a pack of hilarious actors and badass CrossFitters. There will be burpees, bacon, and bear crawls. Shave your calluses, chalk up, and see you there!
