Burning Sensation Virtual Release Party!

Finally… Finally… FINALLY… “Burning Sensation” will be released on Thursday November 12th!  And since we can’t get together in person for a release party, let’s do it online!

It’s take 5 very long years to get this project done and I can’t wait for you to see it!

It’s totally free to join us.  No tickets, no reservations, no parking, no drink minimums.  And you can join us in a few places:
Facebook
YouTube
Twitch
On my website

Heck, I’ll embed it down below on this page too.

I’ll be watching and responding to comments from all the platforms. So you can be a much of a part of  the festivities as you’d like to be. 🙂

I’ve got clips from the show all ready to go, including the one joke that I think is the heart of the show.  I’ll play a few songs for you, maybe do some new comedy I’m working on.  

And you can even join me onscreen if you’d like!  Just go to https://streamyard.com/um67z6v969 and it’ll pop you into the waiting room.  I believe I can only have 6 people at a time in there. So if it’s full, try again a little later.

You might want to look over these instructions too if you’re not familiar with being onscreen yet.  (I imagine most of us are by now.)

If you’re cool, you can hang out.  Please wear clothes. 🙂

Where Do We Stop Shaving?

Where Do We Stop Shaving? Cover

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending way too much time doom scrolling and thinking about the world.

BUT TODAY give yourself a one-minute break from the madness and a healthy Serotonin drip for your brain with the new single from “Burning Sensation.

The first single was topical, relevant, and forward thinking.  This one… isn’t.

It’s a light bit of comedy fluff about nothing that has anything to do with anything called “Where Do We Stop Shaving?”.  This is from later in the show when I’m loosening the crowd back up after doing all the material that makes them uncomfortable.

You can hear the track on your favorite audio streaming service or just watch the video right here.

The full Burning Sensation album and film will be out November 12th and available at www.RoadsideAttraction.com for streaming and download and on DVD, BluRay, and CD.

The Things! They Exist! Burning Sensation Exists!

Pre-orders are going out today!  “Burning Sensation” is finally a thing that I can hold in my hands.. And soon you too.

This has been one of the hardest projects I’ve ever undertaken.  Nothing was easy on this one.  From the writing to the final packaging.  And I learned A LOT along the way.

And while the creation part of the show is done, the work continues because now I have to get it out to the world and convince people to watch it.  YOU can help me with that.  When it comes out, tell your friends, tweet the link, post the posts.  That’s more effective than anything I can do.

The show will be available for stream and download in early November.  I’m still working on how to make that as convenient as possible for you.  It will also be available on DVD, BluRay, and audio CD.  If you’ve got a big TV the BluRay looks way better.  And they’ll be the same price.  So get the good stuff.

The audio version will also be available on all the audio streaming sites.  Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, etc.  

Here’s the release schedule:
Oct 15th – The first single “Not Gonna Happen” will be available on all the audio streaming services.
Oct 29th – The second single “Shaving” will be available on audio streaming
Nov 12th – The full special will be available in all video and audio formats.
(Just in time for the holiday gift giving season!  When everyone will be staying home anyway and ready for something new to watch…)
Nov 27th – A new Xmas single for this year will hit all the audio streaming services.

Thank you so much for your patience and support in helping me get this project done.  On to Phase 3… Or Phase 4.  To quote Enola Holmes, I’ve lost track of my phases.

A Clip From Saturday’s Zoom Show

Did you miss the Zoom show on Saturday?  It was super fun!

I won’t lie. I was a little nervous.  It was the first run through of a new hour of material.  And I’ve never written a new show this quickly before.  So it was either going to be really good or really bad.  

Fortunately it turned out really good!

It was a cool mix of people.  Some who have seen me dozens of times.  Others who’ve seen me before but not for a long time.  And even some who’ve never seen me before.  Great folks all around.

Here’s a little clip from the show about me and my girlfriend looking for a place in to eat in Florence, Italy.

If you missed out, fear not.  We’ll do another one soon after I’ve had some time to rewrite and tighten the material.

AND it’ll have better sound next time because I figured what went wrong on this one.  (Hint: Set Zoom to capture the right mic so it doesn’t end up being just a pretty prop in front of my face.  Duh.)

And we’ll probably do it earlier in the day next time to accommodate some of my non-US friends too.

More big stuff coming soon.  Stay tuned!

Private Zoom Show For You on Sept 12!

Phil Johnson Live Comedy on Zoom Sept 12, 2020

I’ve written a lot of new material in the last few months.  And you may have seen me doing short sets on other people’s shows with it recently.

But I really need to start structuring it into an actual show.  So let’s jump on Zoom and have a show, yeah?  Register to attend here.

This is definitely a work-in-progress show to start figuring out how all this stuff fits together.  It’ll be super fun and (mostly) funny.  But it won’t be super polished. 🙂

We’ll also have a pre-show hang to chat and catch up.  Plus you’ll get an exclusive clip of my soon to be released special “Burning Sensation”.

And a post show Q&A.  “Q&A, you say?”  Yes.  I don’t expect that you have a ton of questions for me. (Though I’m happy to answer if you do.)  But do you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask Tom Hanks or Dolly Parton or Leonardo da Vinci?  You can ask me and I’ll BS my way through their answer.

This show will only be viewable on Zoom – No Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, or anything else.  Zoom (Zoom.us) is super easy to use.  But if you have any questions about it feel free to contact me and I’ll help where I can.
