Sketch- “George R. R. Martin Spoils Everything”

0 Comments 24 June 2016

Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin gets aggro in this comedy sketch from Nuclear Family.

by Daniel Barron



Fandom among Game of Thrones viewers used to be sharply divided between ones who arrived at George R. R. Martin’s world through the show and longtime readers of the books. For some, showrunners D.B. Weiss & David Benioff expanded or improved upon the text in all of the right ways, but for others there is no word but Martin’s, which puts us all in a bit of a quandary now that the series has ventured into wholly uncharted territory. Most fans and critics seem to be very pleased with the direction of the current season, but how does the Martin, himself, feel about the cart surpassing the horse?

Turns out he’s not very pleased at all. Now, the man who let The Red Wedding happen to you is ready to treat your heart as his personal pin-cushion, once again, in this sketch, written by Dave Schilling (Grantland, VICE) and starring Steve Zaragoza as everyone’s favorite steamboat captain-turned best-selling author.
