EP 237 Alessandro Minoli & Sean Donnelly: Creators of Comedy Central’s Jeff & Some Aliens

March 26, 2017

This week, Chuck and Stacey are showcasing the creators of the new Comedy Central show Jeff & Some Aliens, Alessandro Minoli and Sean Donnelly. Having been friends since third grade, Alessandro and Sean talk about how their long history and shared life experiences helps them in their creative collaborations.

Sean and Alessandro’s new endeavor is a spinoff of the animated shorts, Trip Tank, also for Comedy Central, and they talk about the six year process they embarked on from the pitch to getting the green light from Comedy Central.

The Basement Gary creators give advice to fellow content creators and great perspective for building on the setbacks and not considering them a failure. They speak to the creative freedom they’ve been given from Comedy Central and producer Shadow Machine in creating all aspects of their show and give kudos to the amazing production team working with them.

They talk about the premise of the show and people’s first impressions of it as well as the casting process working with CD, Ivy Isenberg who brought together an incredible cast like Malcolm McDowell, Alicia Silverstone, Christian Slater, Brett Gelman, Jon Daly, Josh Fadem, Carlos Alazraqui, Fred Tatasciore and Tress MacNeille.

The pair expresses their preference to work with talent with different backgrounds in acting, stand up comedy and that they’re always looking for new actors. They share where the vision for the animation of the cartoon came from, why it’s unique and looks more like real life. You can watch Jeff and Some Aliens on Comedy Central on Wednesday nights, online and on iTunes.
