Meet William “Pee Wee” Scheidt, a gregarious old timer who’s full of piss and vinegar in that endearing way which only certain senior citizens can effectively pull off. Scheidt is famous for being a die-hard Yankees fan and the unofficial “Mayor of Times Square.” Brooklyn-based comedian and filmmaker Jeff Seal recently followed Scheidt around for a day in Times Square to see how the mayor connects with/breaks the balls of his constituents:
In 1995, at the age of 15, I got drunk for the first time and filmed it. 18 years later, I got drunk again and then tried giving my 15 year old self some advice. This is what happened.

A Day’s Messing is a silent comedy shot on Super 8mm film in the style of Buster Keaton, George Melies and Charlie Chaplin. It follows a NYC bike messenger as he is derailed from delivering an important package by an alluring female cyclist. As he searches for her on the streets of NYC, he falls into a rabbit hole of time, space and absurdity, filled with meticulously choreographed slapstick, heartbreaking pathos and stop-motion roller skates, until serendipity surprises them both. Written, directed by and starring a clown and mime, this film re-imagines the spirit and technique of classic silent comedy, without falling prey to the cliches of contemporary silent comedy films. It’s an original and hilarious cinematic experience.
The mime that killed the meme. The final word on the “Shit Blank Says” meme.
