This past Tuesday I got passed into the paid professional roster at the Denver Comedy Works (the exemplar comedy club as far as I’m concerned) and I’m very proud to join the ranks. Thank Shiva for Wende Curtis, for giving me the opportunity to prove myself on her stage. I’m also indebted to the late David Gray for giving me my start there. If it weren’t for them I would be slinging drugs or something even worse, like mutual funds. I’ll get to do some longer sets at the club now and I couldn’t be more excited.
Starting Thursday I will be on tour with Anthony Armstrong, Mike Hammock, and Aaron Maslow. We’re going through Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Montana. Check out the dates on my schedule.
My album is now live on all the streaming sites, and you can also see a video sample on YouTube:
This weekend I’m performing at Laugh Out Loud in San Antonio, Texas, land of a thousand hotels. I’ve been informed that there is a city here but I can’t see anything but highway. I am enjoying some local cuisine though, got some string cheese from Walmart and the hotel was kind enough to supply me with a hardboiled egg.
I’m in New Orleans this weekend for the Hell Yes Fest. This city is like Paris and Las Vegas had a one night stand. What Hurricane Katrina did to the city, the Me Too Movement did to this comedy festival. But when there is shrimp étouffée in your mouth it’s hard to give a shit about anything else.
I’ll be in Austin, Texas this weekend performing at the Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival. Here’s my schedule. I plan on leaving Austin weirder than when I get there, which I will do by splicing the locals’ DNA with an alien race from Nibiru.
Friday through Sunday (June 15-17) I will be performing at the StarWater Stage at Sonic Bloom. 2 PM on Friday, 12 and 2 PM on Saturday and 1:45 on Saturday. Come by and for the love of gosh bring some deemsters.
I just finished putting together my first album today. The tracks are taken from several performances, mostly at the Denver Comedy Works. I edited and mastered it myself, so please direct all complaints to the sound engineering team at Viacom Studios. I may re-release some of this material at a later date.
I’m in Canada for the first time doing the Winnipeg Comedy Festival all this week. I’ve gotten high twice and I still do not understand the culture around me. People here talk more about American politics than people in America do. It’s very friendly here but I suspect it may be friendly in the same way a Southern grandmother is: nice as can be and silently judging everything.
I recently sat down with Arin Silverstein and attempted to solicit mushrooms. You can listen to it here.
