Product Review: “50 Shades of Greg”

image

Greg Asdourian amuses himself. Every allusion or gotcha elicits an understated chortle. Whether apart of an audience’s flurry, or a solitary, trepid chuckle, Greg has a finger on the pulse…Greg’s pulse. It’s hard to describe: “jolly” is banal hack; “smug” is harshly critical; “cocksure” is too presumptuous of motives and mentality. There it is again. A hushed, appreciative assurance.

2/26. Marcella Arguello Debut CD Recording @ Luna’s Cafe. 1414 16th St. 8pm. Sacramento.

[This bell will rung time and time again, not just by this blog, but, by the comedy community at large. Twitter will flitter, praise will raise until seemingly blasé, and bells will chime time after time for Marcella Arguello. Marcella is INSANELY important. Her success if your success, because she evokes everything good in comedy with an ever-expanding heart. I believe in Marcella, and I believe you should support her as she crafts her first album in a couple weeks in Sacramento. Please spread the word. Thanks.]

"Everything is Awesome!!!" by Tegan and Sara, featuring the Lonely Island (Natives).

[The Lego Movie hit me hard (in the best way). It had all the humanity of your feel-good fiction, insanely clever, with a stunning insight to creativity. I enjoyed it immensely, and highly recommend it. Also, the Berkeley Boys are on the track, which is a good excuse to gush over my favorite family film since Wreck-it-Ralph and Paranorman.] 

Podcast: The Nato Sessions with Nato Green and Guy Branum by 3200 StoriesDownload Link: Here. iTunes: HereOfficial Link: Here

On The Nato Sessions we talk to comedian and comedy writer Guy Branum (of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell & Chelsea Lately) about the impossible labyrinth of growing up a gay, Jewish, redneck Arkie almond farmer in rural California. We discuss working as a comedy writer while maintaining your own voice as a standup, and hash out our disagreements on boycotts, clickbait, outrage, and building the movement of gays where they go to find dick.

Podcast: Terrified with Dave Ross. Episode 27: Emily Heller (#Native). Download Link: Here. iTunes: Here. Official Link: Here.

Emily Heller is Dave’s guest this week!  She’s a great comedian and a great friend and she’s doing great.  Dave and Emily get a little confused as to what they’re going to talk about, because of how great Emily is doing.  They discuss judgment, and the judgment of others, and disliking yourself for the judgment of others.  Emily is doing great.

[This episode is SOOOO good. A lot of good talking points about the nature of starting comedy without a social expectation, shifting acceptance paradigms, and hating your peers with a horrible rap sheet.]
