Video Licks: ‘Ryan Murphy’s Pitches’ Care Of UCB Sketch Group CHOIR


If just one sketch puts a smile on your face today, let it be this one. You know Ryan Murphy as a screenwriter, director and producer, responsible for dramatic series tinged with comedy like Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story, Scream Queens. Murphy brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the TV shows he creates. In this UCB Maude Night performance at the Chelsea theatre in March, the sketch group Choir shows us just what this genius is capable of. Murphy is brought in to pitch ideas to network execs, helping them to boost their ratings slump. It’s time to turn Ryan’s “fever dreams into a reality!” Enjoy Ryan Murphy’s Pitches! (WARNING: Some adult content. Some Mr. Johnson. Great laughter.)

This sketch was written by senior creative producers at Buzzfeed & UCB NY Maude writer, Jason Sweeten, and stars Matt Rogers, Sarah Grace Welbourn, John King, Desi Domo and Colin Marsh. Do you think it’s a coincidence that this group is named Choir and Ryan Murphy was in a choir?! Turn THAT into a pilot, kids.
