SHOW CLIPZ —— Mark Douglas Interview (The Key of Awesome)

They Key of Awesome’s Mark Douglas shares the secrets of YouTube success, plus he and his wife Anastasia perform their Bruno Mars “Grenade” parody, live and UNPLUGGED! Well, sort of plugged. But still, acoustic! Is that more accurate?


The NFL moved their season opener to accommodate the President, but Running Late didn’t budge. And it didn’t matter! Despite competition from Fashion Night Out, Madonna at Yankee Stadium, the closing night of the Democratic National Convention, and literally everything else there is to do on a Thursday night at 9:30pm, we sold out our 4th consecutive show at the PIT last night with a Season 2 premiere for the ages.


  • a titillating conversation with Dominique DiCaprio, who provided the behind-the-scenes scoop on the casting process for the Virgin Guards in Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator
  • the parodical musical stylings of Mark Douglas and his wife Anastasia from The Key of Awesome, who performed their take on Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”
  • a killer stand-up set from Gary Gulman, who fearlessly tackled the grave income inequality issues facing America’s richest men.
  • the rock ‘n’ roll revelry of Spin Doctors’ frontman Chris Barron, who brought the house down with a kingly solo acoustic rendition of “Two Princes.”
