Black light walls

The entrance to the lounge at the my table theater in Portland has black light wallpaper. It really makes me want to come back to the city just to hang out more. I bet there are plenty of hiddent treasures that I won't have time to find while I'm out here at the bridgetowb comedy festival.

I am about to go on a walking tour followed by a private party at a bar with 90 old school video arcade game.

I'm wearing my From jacket.

The entire cast reunited for the first time since the original show!

After Party with guest DJ Hip hop legend PRINCE PAUL!


Join us at Comix as we celebrate the DVD release of the new Comedy Central special, "The Awkward Comedy Show," with performances by the special's director/producer/headliner VICTOR VARNADO, the ENTIRE CAST, and special SURPRISE GUESTS, as well as an afterparty DJ'ed by HIP-HOP LEGEND PRINCE PAUL.

"The Awkward Comedy Show" is a special that showcases stereotype-shattering African-American comedians of a different hue; comedians who are more likely to talk about video games than booty; comedians who are more interested in Simon & Garfunkel than Smith & Wesson; comedians who are likely to drop The N-Word - if that word is "Nerdy." TACS airs on Comedy Central on April 9th.

Thank you Pittsburgh for two and a half great shows

Two great shows in Pittsburgh followed by a third show that was quite a chore.  It was one of those shows that was a fight every step of the way. It was like fighting a dragon. Ultimately the dragon was slain but we got burned in the process.

A dragon reference? Sometimes I forget what a geek I am. I guess my subconscious likes to step in and remind me every once in a while.

On the Road Again for the first time

So... on the heels of my comedy special being released, I decided to add some club work to my rep.  I've appeared on television a lot and I have worked on movies and stuff, but the part of my "essential' standup training that I have neglected has always been doing the road at clubs all over the US.

The weird thing is that since I have been at standup for a while and I have a bunch of TV credits, I am starting out as a headliner.

 First Stop The Funnybone in Pittsburgh North.  There are two Funnybone clubs in pittsburgh.  Theri main club in downtown and their secondary club a little north of P-burgh in a convention hotel.  The latter is where I have landed.  My first show was a show that was added at the last minute.  it was a benefit show for the MS Society.  I considered not doing the joke I normally do about Stephen Hawking but once I was in front of the crowd it seemed like they would take it pretty well and indeed they did.  The joke wasnt making fun of his ailments anyway, It was more about what a ladies man he he can be.  The bit was met with great appreciation.

The second show last nigth was sparsely attended because there was a Pittsburgh Penguins game on TV.  (What kind of a name is penguins for a sports team?  Even a hockey team?)  The house maybe had twenty people at the most.  One couple was spending all their time making out.  Really, I had no idea why they even came out of the house.  It was still a fun show though.  Even with a small crowd sometimes you have have a great time, and so it was.

the saving grace of this entire trip has been Lance Weiss, my opener, he has been as entertaining as anything on th trip.  He admits that he has a little bit of an OCD thing going on so he analyzes and then re analyzes the sets that he has and once that is done he analyzes it a few more time.  He make me laugh, which is helpful.

Well, I am about to go the infamous Square Cafe in Oitssburgh and then watch Kick Ass.

OK Cupid flame war

It was suggested by a friend that I try okcupid.  I did and almost immediate I got into an email war.  Some woman  was upset that I didn't take filling out my profile too seriously, I guess, and here is what she wrote to me and my  subsequent snarky response.



Mar. 31, 2010 – 4:28pm

It is my experience that people who are truly different in a cool, positive way, don't have to try so hard or actually declare themselves as such.


27% Enemy 72% Friend 63% Match Message from HER



How does this message violate our terms of service?

Reported! Our moderators will look into this shortly. Thanks for helping OkCupid stay cool.

Taken from your bio:

"I’m really good at
Learning, loving, understanding, being grateful, cleaning my plate :)"

Please remember to add passing judgment without talking to someone on your list as well.

I don't quite understand what you are trying to teach or show me with your email. It's obvious that you don't want to be friends so I can only assume that you wanted to reach out and try to say something hurtful.

For a person that says they learn love and understand, I find your message strangely out of character.


Seriously?  Why bother me.
