Well, here we are at the end of 2014. This will be my last missive of the year. I’m not even sure what a missive is, but it sounds like it should be included in that sentence.
After my last gig this Sunday for a private party, I’ll be taking a couple weeks off to spend time with my girlfriend and family and eat far too much. Because what better way to cap off the year than by ruining your diet?
Yep, I totally meant to write this post a week ago when the trailer came out. But it didn’t happen somehow. So now….
If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new Star Wars film yet, you’re probably not reading this post anyway, because you don’t have electricity or friends. But just in case…
Ok, so… Lots of cool stuff there right? The crazy sith lightsaber? The Millenium Falcon still zooming along 30 years later? The soccer ball robot? I’m going to have “pew pew” laser dreams for the next 12 months.
Wow wow wow! Sorry it’s taken me a couple days to get to this post. The filming of my new comedy special last Saturday went fantastic! My audio engineer is mixing the sound as we speak. And as soon as I get back from my short Midwest tour, I’ll be handling the editing myself.
Hopefully looking for a mid-December release.
Tickets were sold out by Saturday morning and I had a stream of people emailing and texting asking how they could get in anyway. And I think we managed to squeeze everybody in that made it out to Art Boutiki. Can’t turn away people that want to laugh, right?
I’ve been reading the San Jose Metro for 25 years and never gotten any ink in it outside of a calendar listing. So it’s nice to finally see my squinched up mug in there in an interview this week for my comedy special filming tomorrow night.
The event, by the way, is essentially sold out. But we should be able to squeeze a few more people in at the door.

Well, the big event is just 4 days away. We’ll be filming my 3rd comedy special. The thing I love about doing these specials is that it’s the purest version of my art at this time. It’s not some random club in a random town where the audience doesn’t know me and I have to carefully cater to their tastes to make sure I get paid at the end of the night.
Instead, I can do exactly what I want to do because the people in the audience, for the most part, have been following my career for years and and are both pulling for my success and interested in what new material I’m bringing to the table.
