Video: Steve Rannazzisi – “Ordering A Pizza” (Animation)

posted by Oscar November 11, 2013

You may best recognize Steve Rannazzisi as Kevin MacArthur on The League, but he’s actually also a stand-up comedian, and a damn good one at that. In the clip you see above, Rannazzisi tells the story of how he found his new drug dealer after moving to LA. The “humanimation” on this helps recreate that story and really adds to the bit as a whole.

Catch the stand-up special, Steve Rannazzisi: Manchild, on Saturday, November 16 when it premieres at 12am/11c on Comedy Central.
