U.S. Army Specialist Tommy Pritchard says hi.

Nice ‘stache! A lot of you may know Tommy from many early Schadenfreude shows. If a sketch was bombing, he was that laugh you heard. I have a great piece of footage I just remembered of Tommy and Justin in Cafe Ashie writing a song they wrote for Schadenfreude during our first dozen shows, I’ll have to try and get that up, it’s a museum piece. Anyway, Tommy has been in the Army for a couple years, he’s seen some time in Iraq and was training near Barstow, three hours away. So I took a day off and ran up for a beer in a bowling alley full of night-vision-camoflaged men and a couple Iraq stories from the other men in his platoon. Military bases are so cool. Some of you might recognize the landscape behind Tommy there, it’s the middle of absolutely fucking nowhere.
