Bay 2 LA: A Riot LA Preview (Live from I-5)

California is crazy big and insanely spoiled. We used to just have gold, now we have the Internet, which is like printing your own gold. We are smaller than Texas yet we have more sports teams. Our fucking flag has a bear on it. Most importantly, we have at least five distinct comedy scenes, and two (or more?) major alt-comedy festivals (both occurring in the month of January).

I’m currently in between rest stops. Apparently Congress created this Dust Bowl surrounding the car with decay, the perfect backdrop for writing about frivolous abundance. Riot LA is a day away/the second display of emphatic array/with podcasts, talk shows and stand-up galore/legends, upstarts, food trucks and more!

Courting Sketchfest: BriTANicK @ The Eureka Theater [16 Days Until Fest]

[I wish I was already on this bandwagon. It’s unsettling. I’m supposed to know what’s what and on the level to a respectable degree, not caught with my dick in my hand outside of the UCB Theater Los Angeles. Alas, I stood in a queue for an hour hoping to enter a sold-out show wondering what the hell was happening. This is happening: a comedy duo that has impressed the likes of Joss Whedon and Lionsgate Films. A Youtube rabbit hole later and I feel like less of an idiot. Don’t be like me. Watch, learn, then experience BriTANicK for yourself.]
