I have an announcement to make. WAIT! STOP! I really do! The baby alligators are just fine and I didn't eat all your chalk. Neither of those is the announcement they're just simple facts. Here we go...
Last November my friend Mo Fathelbab (founder of the comedy label THE EXPERIMENT and a jovial, fantastic human being) approached me and asked me if I wanted to do a stand-up residency at a room in a bar in Brooklyn for one year. The proposal was I would perform 8-10 minutes every Tuesday for a year and when the year was up, record my first album.
I have been performing stand-up since I was 17. I didn't hesitate for a second. The answer was "Hell the shit yeah!" if memory serves correctly (always the poet). Well, a funny thing happened: I showed up at The People's Republic of Brooklyn (247 Smith St). Every week. And got better. And better. And worse. Then better again. Then worse. Then, finally, at home on stage.
So, I'm giving all of New York City a head's up: I am officially recording my first album at THE TREEHOUSE THEATER (formerly THIS THEATER) 154 W. 29th Street on Friday. November 21st. Two shows: 8PM and 10PM. $10. Links, fliers, and openers will all be announced/posted as soon as they're ready.
This is a big deal to me. I'm so excited. Please mark your calendars. Tell your friends.
Thank you to all of you who have supported my pursuit of comedy over the last decade and a half.
I love you and would be nothing without you.
Thanks for reading this and truly letting me indulge myself.
