Before Basking in the Joy of the ‘Happy Endings’ Premiere, Watch The Cast Perform at UCB
Happy Endings‘ third season premieres tonight, but if that’s just too long of a wait for you, the cast’s live special filmed at UCB over the weekend is now on YouTube. Adam Pally and Casey Wilson host the hour-long sketch show, and it goes pretty much as you’d imagine it, complete with Wilson’s goofy, vaguely Carlton Banks-esque dancing.
A number of special guests appear, including fellow castmates Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr. (who gets asked some very uncomfortable questions), Fred Savage (!) and Kat Dennings. Brian Gallivan, one of the show’s writers who you may know as the star of Second City’s "Sassy Gay Friend," discusses writing the show ("I relate to Max because I have about one boyfriend a season," he jokes.) and sings an amusing and terrifying song about running into one of his former students at the club, with some cardboard cutouts cheering him on in the background. But perhaps the most memorable moment of the show is Eliza Coupe’s rendition of Claire Danes as Temple Grandin as Carrie Mathison. Watch.
