“2776” is a futuristical music video conceived by Rob Kutner, Joel Levinson and Stephen Levinson

America is a thousand years old and an evil alien, played by Martha Plimpton, threatens to destroy the country, unless the President – Will Forte – and his Secret Service agent – Aubrey Plaza – can deter her.

(Play along, okay?)

The future, it seems “looks like a permanent Comic-Con.”

ROB KUTNER podcast excerpt: “The great thing about the future is there is no accountability. People can never go back and prove that you were wrong. This also delvres into history a bit–we have a remix of the Battle of the Alamo, we have the Civil War envisioned as a therapy session where Maria Bamford plays the North and the South and Dr. Katz–Jonathan Katz–is the mediator.”

Oh, and 2776 is a musical that plays out over 28 songs and a series of music videos. Sort of like the Bicentennial Broadway musical “1776,” but in an earthy, street language and rap style that the Founding Fathers couldn’t begin to decipher.

Created by The Levinson Brothers, Joel and Stephen, with Rob Kutner, this craziness about the year 2776 features performances by more than 80 singers, comedians and actors, including Patton Oswalt, Ellie Kemper, Aimee Mann, Paul F. Thompkins, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and many more.

It comes on a CD being sold to benefit OneKid OneWorld, a foundation for education in impoverished communities throughout Kenya and El Salvador that gives children from primary through secondary school the opportunity for a better and brighter future.

Joining me to explain all of this is Rob Kutner, long-time comedy writer for Conan O’Brien on both his TBS show, “Conan,” and “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” before that. Kutner has also been a staff writer for “The Dennis Miller Show” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” This is his third Mr. Media appearance.

We’ll also be joined by brothers Joel and Stephen Levinson performing two songs from 2776, “Escape from New York” and “I Want to Take a Nap.”
