I have way too much time on my hands, so I transcribed almost every question answered by Joey and Corey in their TinCanBros #LiveAtFive livestream. This first part is more or less the first half hour of the video. Part 2 to come later today. Hope it’s useful to someone. Enjoy!
Is everything scripted before hand or is there a basic idea and the most is improvised?
Joey: It depends. The first sketch we did, the Phone Thief, was outlined. We had the basics, and we kinda rolled with it. It was probably the most improved sketch we’ve done, but a lot of them are scripted. Like the Rich Friend ones, they have a lot of physical jokes to it, the timing that needed to work out.
Corey: Then we have stuff that just sort of happens…
Joey: Totally, keep the camera rolling ‘cause that’s funnier. House of cards was really scripted, it really didn’t deviate from the script at all […]
Corey: Spoiler Alert is very scripted, up until… right before the end, with all the different spoiler things and Jack’s reactions.

We’ve been lax about posting these and we are so sorry! But we couldn’t pass up this week’s, considering it features more Corey (even offscreen) than any of the previous sketches. Enjoy Your Rich Friend Makes A Smoothie!
