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.
This week, December 24-31, I’m the comic of the week on Comedy 103.1 FM. This announcement provoked questions from my family such as: “what is FM?” and “do I have to pay for it?”. You can find the answers to these questions, and some jokes of mine, played every hour on the hour, at http://www.comedy1031.com/.
I’ve just added some content to the website which will be of much interest to the three people from Ukraine who have bookmarked my page. This last July I was part of an album recording that featured the best comedians in Denver who were available. You can hear me make some unresearched claims about the Clintons, among other things, on track 23. Also, I’ve added a link to the Middlename YouTube channel, where you can see me pretending to be a chef and a homeless guy.
The other day a comic asked me if I was on tour. I was eating cheese in a Holiday Inn outside of Albuquerque. So technically I was on tour. But to me, “on tour” implies throwing televisions out of hotel windows, group sex, and satanic rituals. So I’m reluctant to call what I do touring. What I do is sit in a hotel room, go tell jokes for a half hour, and then sit in the hotel room again. Ideally at some point in that framework I have time to eat some cheese.
Anyway, I’ve posted my shows here on the website. Come see me talk about cheese in person.
