Sideways and Otherways

In childhood, I aspired to be a sketch comedian. In high school I did standup all over the greater LA area. I have vague memories of fuzzy monologues about human cheese and euthanasia. Nothing even I found of worth remembering in detail. Those dreams were put to bed by an amazing opportunity that was hindered by the 9/11 tragedy. Not the warmest audience that 9/11 crowd… and not very welcoming of ‘too soon’ jokes. It was for the best. My passions lie elsewhere now. But I am titillated to say that we will be playing a rare and brief acoustic set at Upright Citizens Brigade August 14th for the live Grand Theft Audio stream. Come down to UCB, have a few laugh (some at the comics, and some at our expense). Either way come down and share in the fun. You can buy reserved tickets here: http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/shows/2790
And don’t forget, we’re playing at The Mint, los Angeles Aug. 10th!

When in Rome…

Well, I saw a man attempt to eat an entire Costco jar of Mayo this week. There seems to be more puking than eating in that process. Go figure. We also played a rare acoustic set (unicycle sans cyclophone, pots and childrens toys et all) at a comedy show slash birthday party; it was the amuse-bouche for the MM&C virgin. Lesson: unfunny things can open up for funny things. We played alongside a Korea Town pool where I sat with my feet dangling in the water as a man floated his belly atop the water in front of us. All in all it was very david-lynchian…
