We here at Nerdist love to share the love. Mostly because we just love to love (AWW!). But we also love to celebrate the nerds ’round these parts that have done us so well in the past, present, and well into the future. Which is why we’re super-de-duper excited to let you all in on a little secret: Nerdist’s own Ben Mekler has a new sketch starring OTHER Nerdist family member Kurt Braunohler — and it’s airing on Adult Swim this week! GASP: the excitement is palpable, isn’t it?
Airing on Adult Swim Monday, October 13th through Friday, October 17th at 1:00am PT/4:00am ET (but always check your local listings first — there’s safety in TV-watching security! Also because cable providers are weird), the written and executive produced Salad Mixxxer was spearheaded by Mekler, Christopher Amick, and David Soldinger. Soldinger also handled directing duties with none other than Ken friggin’ Marino. So you know it’s going to be good, right? I mean, Marino’s involved. C’mon.
And that doesn’t even begin to cover it. The sketch is part of a series of infomercial parodies Adult Swim is hosting, including another written by Mekler and Co. called Goth Fitness (that one stars Gone Girl‘s Missi Pyle and Ryan Stanger). The kinky-sounded Salad Mixxxer, though — starring Braunohler, Liz Cackowski, Betsy Sodaro, Carly Craig, and a few other performers some of you fellas out there may be familiar with (cough cough cough) — will pay homage to those infos from the 1960s, featuring a salad tosser that’s sure to save time in the kitchen for all you modern gals out there.
So — are you ready to flip that salad, mixxx it, and reverse it? Toss us your thoughts in the comments.
