For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Unfiltered” by Open Mike Eagle & Danny Brown

Open Mike Eagle & Danny Brown: Unfiltered

Danny got filtered through Mikes mouf…

Hey, howcome Mike Eagle is the Wednesday Listening Pleasure two weeks in a row? Well, son, it’s because he just keeps on a-puttin’ out musics!

This time it’s the debut clip from his upcoming (premieres this Friday, April 19th!) Comedy Central series, The New Negroes, in which the expressive Danny Brown lives inside of the repressed Mike Eagle and spouts the things Mike only wishes he could say. It’s very funny. You can take a look/listen here!

Short and hilarious. Good work, fellas!

Be sure to watch The New Negroes when it premieres on Comedy Central this Friday!

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Every Single Thing” by Open Mike Eagle

Open Mike Eagle: Every Single Thing

What’s in your box of meaning…?

Open Mike Eagle recently released a new video for the song “Every Single Thing” off of his EP What Happens When I Try to Relax (another EP!). In it, a man played by Tracy Kernell gathers and burns a “box of meaning” over another stunning, clever, angry, and beautifully lyrical Open Mike Eagle song.

Seriously, how can Mike keep on putting out music that’s so good?

Don’t forget that Mike’s Comedy Central Show, The New Negroes, premieres on April 19th! Also he has a webseries currently running called Live from WZRD. Also he’s pretty much completely awexome.

Not Shovel Knight. NOT SHOVEL KNIGHT! IT SHOULD’VE BEEN ME!!

Open Mike Eagle is a Wizard, Harry

Summon-up, summon-up, summon-up&hellip

“Summon-up, summon-up, summon-up…”

Surprise! Not only does Open Mike Eagle have an upcoming Comedy Central TV Show, but now he also has a comedy webseries up and running! It’s called Live From WZRD and it can be watched on VRV, which I’d never heard of before this. You can also watch the episodes on YouTube a couple of days after they’ve been released on VRV.

From the YouTube description:

LIVE FROM WZRD is a talk show hosted by Open Mike Eagle and Dani Fernandez. Shot in the student-run TV studio at East Gatewood Wizarding Community College (a 2-year accredited wizarding school in La Crescenta, CA). LIVE FROM WZRD keeps students and faculty up-to-date while educating the real world on the day-to-day lives of actual wizards, breaking the old Hollywood myths about wizardry and getting real.

The show features on-set segments with celebrity guests and characters from around the school, as well as behind-the-scenes drama, with Mike and Dani finding themselves entangled in dangerous situations in the magical realm of East Gatewood.

You can watch this episode, in which YouTuber/Voice Actor SunWon Cho (AKA ProZD) is brought to the WZRD studio TOTALLY OF HIS OWN FREE WILL, right here!

So now you know that there’s a Wizarding World in East Gatewood. We all knew Mike was a lyrical wizard (*sad trombone*), but now we know he’s an actual wizard!

Truth.

Truth.

First Trailer for Open Mike Eagle & Baron Vaughn’s “The New Negroes” on Comedy Central!

Baron Vaughn & Open Mike Eagle's The New Negroes

“I like chuch…”

Very exciting! After a long-ish gestation, the first trailer for Open Mike Eagle & Baron Vaughn’s new comedy/variety show on Comedy Central is here! It’s called The New Negroes (which is a reference to the Harlem Renaissance of the 1910s & 1920s) and you can watch the trailer here.

I’m so excited for Mike! This show looks to be a mix of standup, music, and maybe some bizarre sketch-comedy stuff, judging from a few quick clips like this one where someone emerges from Mike’s mouth:

Here are some more interesting screenshots that I pulled from the trailer. Let the speculation begin!
