One Of My Hands Doesn’t Work… Can I Borrow Yours?

Comedy from "Pretty From The Back" by Phil JohnsonThe release of “Pretty From The Back” is going nicely.  Thank you for buying the DVDs and downloads.  If you haven’t gotten yours yet, you can get it here.

I’m actually in the hardest part of the release right now.  Promotion.  Gotta tell people or they won’t buy it, right?

I’ve been spending so much time on my laptop getting the word out that my Carpal Tunnel started acting up.  Nothing like having your hand go numb in the middle of the night.

“Pretty From The Back” is out now!

Pretty From The Back comedy DVD from Phil JohnsonWell, it only took 4 years of writing and another year of refinement and production… If you’re counting, that’s half my comedy career so far… Yikes.

But “Pretty From The Back” is finally available!

Everyone that took advantage of the pre-order deal should be receiving their copies within the next couple days.

If you didn’t pre-order, fortune smiles upon you and you can grab it now.

Here’s the blurb that tells you all about the new special…

Pop Singers Who Need Their Own Video Games

Quick! What's the first word that comes to mind when you see Kanye West? It was "humility", right? Yeah, me neither.

Quick! What’s the first word that comes to mind when you see Kanye West? It was “humility”, right? Yeah, me neither.

According to this post over at, Kanye West is developing a video game that has the player getting Kanye’s dead mom to the highest gate of Heaven by holding her to the light.

Kanye’s dear mother Donda passed away in 2007.  If she’s not there by now… Besides, Kanye already proclaimed “I Am God” on the Yeezus album. Mom shouldn’t need a lot of help from a guy poking his phone on a lunch break.

Friends In Need…

I’ve got a couple friends who have hit on hard times through no fault of their own.  We all know folks like that, I understand.  But if you have a few dollars to spare, I encourage you to take a look at my friends Eric Bolivar and Corie Gipson.

It doesn’t seem to matter what kind of health care fixes the government comes up with, nothing seems to cover stuff like this.

Eric BolivarEric Bolivar is a friend of mine from high school and one of the best drummers I know.  He’s a mainstay of the New Orleans music scene and a genuinely great human being.

Comedy Hack Day 2015 San Francisco

COmedy Hack Day 2015 - San Francisco Comedy Hack Day, produced by Cultivated Wit is an event that pairs coders with comics in a 24-ish hour marathon of building something interesting and funny for the web.

I haven’t done any hard core coding since programming and Apple IIc in middle school.  And I could program that crap out of that little green screen too.

These days I’m limited to whatever I can drag and drop.  So I definitely went into this event as a comedian and nothing more.  And that was painfully obvious as I was the only person writing in a paper notebook as I was surrounded by Mac logos.
