In honor of Christie Hefner stepping down as Chief Executive of Playboy, and to shed light on Playboy’s plight of ever dwindling relevance in matters of boobs and airbrushing, I’m going to try something new here at the RooftopBlog. Hear me out: centerfolds.

Yes, we’re probably (read: probably) not ever going to replicate the tactile sensation of unfolding a May 1989 issue of Playboy to find Ms. May gazing longingly at you (when you meant to look for an old Domino Rally set) but I think that spirit is still with us. Besides, it gives us a chance to use some awesome (read: awesome) photos that our own Rooftop Comics sent us for our own calender, which unfortunately we were not able to do this year, maybe next, if the world is still around, of course.

Our inaugural centerfold is Birmingham, Alabama’s own Matt Mitchell! Yeah, drink it in, let it warm you up in these cold days.

Hoping this can be a weekly thing, and comics! Any remote interest in being a Rooftop Pin-up (on top of comic) send all vaguely/mildly/is that even legal erotic photos…to me. That didn’t come out right. Regardless, send them to:

paolo (at) whereiworkishereatrooftopcomedy (dot) com

Don’t you just feel better? Like your stomach is all in knots, and you don’t know how to deal with these new funny feelings?

Thanks so much for the love.

You’ve just ruined thousands of keyboards with your first try.

(Its hard to get the keys to work soaked in vomit)

Anyone want me to be their sidekick?

So this is the reason why they don’t want Robin in the new Batman movies… look how out of shape he is now.

I never knew Matt bought his Halloween costumes at Gymboree.

He ripped through his shirt like a really gay Hulk.

Hmmm…We have a Swimsuit Edition coming up at Funnynotslutty in a few months. May have overlooked a gem…We may be fighting for exclusives of Mr. Mitchell.

Congrats Matt!

If you look at the pic from the knee caps down, you could swear that it was a football player that left his leg-warmers on… it’s kinda like putting a giant paper bag over him.

Matt did you know that Wikipedia has a very interesting definition of our future relationship? ” A sidekick is a stock character, a close companion who assists a partner in a superior position.” Interesting!!!!! 😉
