Dancing with Myself

Posted on September 24, 2010

Today is my 200th blog post! I’m pretty excited about that. Thank you to everybody who has been reading it so far.

I decided to celebrate by making the video above. I’ve talked about my amazing dancing before quite a bit, and I thought it was time to show it off. If that doesn't sound appealing, some other stuff happens about halfway through. Hope you enjoy it.

Remember to keep coming back, and feel free to hit the "share" button early and often. Thanks again.

Avez-Vous Une Cigarette?

Posted on August 13, 2010

I apologize for the terrible picture quality of the following video. It's one of my first character monologues, and I think it holds up pretty well.

This comes from a 2006 performance at The Hideout in Chicago as part of Funny Ha-Ha, a terrific reading series hosted then and now by my friend Claire Zulkey.



HBO Promo

Posted on June 15, 2010

I've finally given up on trying to start a career in the magazine industry. So, I thought to myself, "What do I like besides lying on the couch reading magazines?" And, the answer was lying on the couch watching television. Thus, I have begun my hunt for a career in television.

I'm beginning with this quick spec promo I made for HBO, the premium cable channel. Enjoy.

This is a video about sudoku, the puzzle sensation that swept the nation. A while back. Now, there are new number-based puzzles trying to sweep the nation. Like karoku or futoshiki. They're pretty late to the game, though, especially since everybody has iPhones by now. We're all busy collecting apps.

Speaking of which, have you gotten the app that checks when bands on your iPod are coming to town? It's great! I tell ya, tomorrow is here today.

The sudoku video was directed by the incomparable Steve Delahoyde and livened up by the equally incomparable Paul Thomas. I mean, when you compare Steve and Paul, it’s hard to tell which is more incomparable. Their incomparability is almost exactly equal.


The Greatest Slow Jam

Posted on April 12, 2010


[Text of the above video, which was animated using the website xtranormal.]

After years of research, our scientists have developed the greatest slow jam of all time. This slow jam is the slow jam to beat all slow jams. It has more oh babies, gettings close, and feeling its than any that has come before.

However, we cannot release this slow jam. Testing suggested that this slow jam may be too powerful, too slowly jammed. Early listeners in the lab immediately began making love to each other’s faces. One participant, upon hearing the jam, ground her hips straight through her dancing partner.

Fearing this slow jam may be too dangerous, we will be removing two suggestive verses discussing how it has been “so hard” for “so long” without you. We believe this should solve the reflexive humping problems.

At least, we hope it will.
