"Washington Redskins" by Matt Gubser. Recorded Live at Arcata Theater Lounge.

San Francisco Bay Area comedian Matt Gubser. Clip from my still-forthcoming album “Daddy Issues” which will be available some time this summer.

I full-heartedly support this campaign. These people have opened my eyes to the beauty of Northest California, all the while accommodating my degeneracy. Savage Henry have a piece of my heart and I want everybody to know, share, and give what they can. Can they raise $10,000 in 5 Days? Only if YOU believe… (and contribute)!

When we started Savage Henry in 2010, we had no idea of the amazing reception we would receive. We started with 1,000 copies and a “We’ll see if this works” kind of attitude. We had no seed money, and no business loan. To print the first issue, we found enough advertisers to pitch in without ever having seen an issue. Four years later, we are now printing 14,000 copies that are distributed regularly along the west coast from Portland to Los Angeles. Our subscribers span the country, and our podcast listeners hail from around the world as far as Germany and South Korea. We have done our best to pace our growth while keeping our advertising rates competitive and fair all while keeping Savage Henry a free publication.

We love writing comedy, we love bringing comedians to Humboldt County to perform, and we feel honored that you would bring our brand of low-brow, crass humor into your homes. It’s the proudest thing any of us here on the staff have ever done.

Now we need your help. It’s time to take this to the next step and with your support we can do it. We’re introducing the Free Savage Henry campaign. We challenge our readership to donate $1 (or more). If just one dollar were donated to Savage Henry from every reader, we would have the seed money we need to reach our goals.

If you don’t want to use the Internet to pay, send your check or money order to 791 8th St. Suite N, Arcata, CA 95521. We’ll donate the money in your name so you can still bask in the glory that is donating to the Free Savage Henry Magazine.

Favorite Things of Last Night: “It’s Only Two Minutes: ‘I Like My…’”

Ugh. I’m still exhausted from the 2nd Annual S.H.I.Ts and Giggles Festival in Humboldt. No sleep for three days in a quicksand of flavors and a glorious humming glow of a unbearable camaraderie… it was intense. One of the many highlights of the experience was the “It’s Only Two Minutes” show. The premise of the show includes candid, free-association, improvisational stand-up within condensed distress and competition. In the beginning, the audience was only composed of comedians, towards the end, a glazed mixture of appreciative listeners caramelized around the event’s rim. The middle, completely uproarious. “It’s Only Two Minutes” works well within the familial vibe of S.H.I.Ts and Giggles, most beautifully encapsulated in the concluding ‘I Like My…’ Game where comedians improvise paternalesque one-liners from crowd-culled prompts. Here are some of my favorite responses from the show, occurring 08/24/2013

"I like my women like I like my ‘9/11’s: going down on everybody!" - Brandon Stokes

"I like my women like I like my ‘tofu’: tasteless and pretentious." - Marcia Belsky

"I like my women like I like my ‘freedom fighters’: Black!" - Danny Felts

"I like my women like I like my ‘mother’: showing absolutely no affection for my father." - Andre Parker

"I like my men like I like my ‘parachute’: willing to open up or we’re both gonna die." - Emmett Montgomery (Champion).
