The comedian shares his favorite moments from Instagram.
In this series, celebrities crack open their Instagram accounts and break down the inspiration and meaning behind some of their favorite photos. Here, comedian and actor Paul Scheershows a side to Kelsey Grammer you may not want to see.
My Mom and I went to the new park at Disney’s Animal Kingdom based on Pandora from Avatar. As you enter this truly stunning looking land, there was a giant flower that looked like it was riddled with S.T.D.s. I’m sure this flower will play a pivotal role in the new Avatar films, but until then, it’s just GROSS! (Also side note: the entire time we were there, both rides were broken, so the only thing you could do was take pictures with this flower. Every family’s dream).
I love this photo because people think they get it but then they actually see what’s happening. It’s the best response to a photo since those 3-D posters you used to stare at in the mall. (I don’t know who made it).
I have two amazing kids. One who particularly likes tunnels and caves. I spend the better part of my day shimmying into VERY tight spaces and then awkwardly trying to get out of them. I’m like a really lame Houdini.
I went to Iraq on a U.S.O. tour with the Daily Show. It was me, Rob Riggle, Rob Huebel, and Horatio Sanz. I was completely blown away by this experience. The brave men and women who work overseas were the best AND they let us use a TANK! That’s right, I shot a tank and you know how it felt, AWESOME! Yeah suck it, you’ll never shoot a tank!
I recently saw Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812. It’s a really amazing show that literally puts you in the play. The show is all around you and you must be involved because they are constantly pulling you into the action. At one point, they pass notes and this one seemed especially catered to me, or the cast is always professing their love for the How Did This Get Made? Either way, it made my night! Long live GROBAN!
I had the honor of doing the first ever virtual reality comedy show. This is me chilling out backstage eating a pizza, when in reality I was in my garage without pants on.
I was a guest on Mystery Hour, a local late-night talk show in Missouri, because I never pass up on a free trip to Missouri. The show was great and during my segment, I casually said that Missouri was the California of the Midwest, due to its abundance of coffee shops and microbrew bars. These two people who owned a local T-shirt shop, ran out mid-show and made this shirt and gave it to me afterwards. It was one of the best gifts ever.
Yes. This is real. It’s from his own account. It blew my mind too.
I accidentally left my keys in the house one night and my wife fell asleep while waiting up for me to let me in. From the time I texted her to when I arrived home (three minutes) she fell asleep hard. I called, I rang the doorbell, I texted, and she slept through it all. I was convinced that she would wake up in the middle of the night and I’d just wait in the car for her until she did. She never did, so instead I just camped out in my car which was actually less comfortable and more cold then being in a tent but it did have more Wi-Fi, which was a great chance to catch up on The Leftovers. So it was a lose-lose-win situation.
I co-host a podcast with Jason Mantzoukas and June Diane Raphael called How Did This Get Made? The owner of Gallery 1988 (one of the best galleries in Hollywood) asked if we’d be open to having an art show celebrating the show with pieces inspired by the podcast. We said yes and then on opening night, we saw these three four-foot tall images of our faces on the wall. So I did the move that any good dictator does: I stood next to it.
This is my sister, her name is Kathleen and she is my rock and my best friend. Actually it’s me, and I bet you really thought this was a hot girl. But no, it’s me. Thank God for contouring and the amazing makeup artists on The League, any dude can be a pretty lady.
It’s an impromptu League reunion! In the pilot episode of The Leagueback in 2009, the guys became obsessed with the Oracle, a 10-year-old kid who knew everything about Fantasy Football. One night Matt Walsh (who played the Oracle’s dad) and I were hanging out. We heard this voice, “Hey remember me, I’m the Oracle.” We turned and saw Paulie [Litt]. He looked great but seeing how much he aged made me feel old. Tip to kids: stay young, it makes me feel better about myself.
