Rock legend Zakk Wylde and comedian Jim Breuer have teamed up for “Crapshoot”, a new rock and roll comedy now available exclusively on DVD. The free-flowing “Crapshoot” combines Zakk‘s larger-than-life persona with Jim‘s hilarious improv skills, resulting in a hybrid show mixing reality, sketch comedy, improv, and amazing music.
“Crapshoot” was originally produced as a television pilot, pairing Wylde‘s intense energy and musical gifts with Breuer‘s freewheeling comedy and hardcore love for rock. The creators of the show, David Kister and Murray Oden, gathered a stellar supporting cast, featuring Mo Collins (“Mad TV”, “Arrested Development”, “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”).
After the Crapshoot.tv website, featuring a few select clips from the project, received over a million hits in its first two months, it was decided to release the project independently. The result is an unfiltered rock and roll comedy
DVD unlike anything on the market.
Zakk Wylde was an unknown teenager when he was discovered by Ozzy Osbourne. Zakk has been Ozzy‘s lead guitarist ever since, co-writing many of Osbourne‘s multi-platinum albums, including “No Rest For The Wicked”, “No More Tears” and “Ozzmosis”. In 1998, Zakk formed his own band, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, which has sold over one million units worldwide.
Jim Breuer established himself on the comedy scene with a four-year stint on “Saturday Night Live”, and his movie roles include co-starring with Dave Chappelle in “Half Baked”. Jim currently hosts his own radio show, “Jim Breuer Unleashed”, which can be heard weekday afternoons on Sirius Satellite Radio‘s Raw Dog Comedy channel.
“Crapshoot”, available exclusively on-line at Crapshoot.tv, is produced by David Kister, Murray Oden, and Chunky B.
Por otro lado, Zakk Wylde [wiki] dejó su marca ayer en el Rockwalk de Hollywood, en una ceremonia en la que fue apadrinado por Ozzy Osbourne [wiki], y en la que se pudieron ver algunas caras conocidas (ver fotos de WireImage y de Getty Images).
La otra actualización es referente al tan traido y llevado “Chinese Democracy” de los nuevos “Guns N? Roses” de Axl Rose. La fiesta de anuncio del próximo tour de Korn [wiki] sirvió para que la revista Rolling Stone sacase algunas declaraciones del señor Rose sobre “el disco más caro de la Historia”… o no. Por lo tanto, cabe esperar que este año se escuche el afamado material. Veremos si está a la altura de las expectativas.
