The Real Hassan Ali

Schad was thrilled to be a part of “IL-Informed,” the new WTTW sketch comedy pilot airing on Channel 11 this Sunday at 10.30 pm. One of the bits on the show features a fake Stone Phillips – type reporter named Hassan Ali. This is me as Hassan Ali, with the real Hassan Ali. Hassan is actually a friend of producer Paris Schutz’s and they thought it’d be great if some whitebread douchebag reporter used the name Hassan Ali as his professional moniker. Awesome. Thanks to Hassan Ali for joining the ranks of Schadenfreude characters named after real people: Tony Smaleck, Andy Wahlstrom and Scruffy McMuffin. Tune in this Sunday!
