Last night was the season finale of House of Lies and if you watched, you saw that everything has exploded. The entire show is up in the air which is incredibly exciting. What better way to celebrate the show than to watch the live improv comedy special we all did for Showtime a few months ago. Enjoy House of Lies Live, shot at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles with Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, me, Josh Lawson, Lauren Lapkus, Ryan Gaul and Eugene Cordero. Everything in this video was made up on the spot. Enjoy and share it with your friends so hopefully I can put together more of these long form improv shows for TV! The YouTube clip above has all of the curses bleeped out, to watch the uncensored version, find the special on Showtime On Demand or ShowtimeAnytime and enjoy all the profanity in the universe.
House of Lies has been renewed for a FOURTH SEASON!!! An enormous thank you to Showtime and to every single one of our fans who has been watching, tweeting and spreading the word about our dark twisted show. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Here’s an interview i did on New Year’s Eve in New York with Huffington Post’s HuffPostLive about the improv special House of Lies Live, the premiere of House of Lies and the art of improv on Parks and Recreation. Watch above or by clicking HERE.
As a beautiful surprise, Showtime has secretly released the full, season 3 premiere episode of House of Lies a week before it’s television premiere! Watch the entire episode right now above or by clicking HERE. The new season of House of Lies starts this Sunday, January 12th at 10pm on Showtime. Shit’s about to get very fucked up.

The Long Form Improv Special “House of Lies LIVE” Premieres Online 12/30 and on Showtime on NYE!
I have very special news! I executive produced and acted in a special for Showtime that will bring LONG FORM IMPROV TO TELEVISION!
The special is called HOUSE OF LIES LIVE and combines improv newbies Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell with improv veterans from our television show- Josh Lawson, Ryan Gaul, Lauren Lapkus, Eugene Cordero and myself. We get a single suggestion from the crowd to create an entire long form improv show. Every word and idea is made up on the spot. No one knows what is going to happen next.
I have been performing improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in both NY and LA for the past ten years and it has been a dream of mine to get long form on television to show off the kind of stuff the UCB Theatres do on a daily basis. And the fact that I get to do this while highlighting how funny and amazing the cast of House of Lies is, is just a beautiful treat. I hope people are blown away by how talented this cast is because it’s remarkable how good they are for trying this out for the first or second time. And this group in particular had never performed on stage together before the cameras started rolling.
Showtime has been unbelievably supportive and wonderful throughout this entire process. House of Lies Live will premiere ONLINE on December 30th then have it’s big television premiere on NYE at 10pm on Showtime.
This special means a lot to me and any love the tumblr/twitter/facebook/instagram/comedy community could give to support this type show on television would be very much appreciated. If this goes well, who knows what comes next.
Check out some of the clips below from the special that airs in just one week!
Season 3 of House of Lies premieres on January 12 at 10pm on Showtime. That is just over a month away! To get you in the mood, here is the first behind the scenes piece with Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Josh Lawson and myself on the upcoming third season where things get all sorts of fucked up.

House of Lies has been picked up for a third season!!! This is such fantastic news! Thank you to everyone at Showtime for your amazing support and every single of one of you that has been watching. I can’t wait for everyone to see what happens next in season 2!!! Our next new episode airs a week after the Super Bowl, February 9th at 10pm on Showtime and it features…MATT…FUCKING…DAMON.
We are eleven days away from the season 2 premiere of House of Lies! To celebrate, Showtime has released a behind the scenes look at what we’ve been up to for the new season.
