[A lot of lists this time of year. I’m extremely happy that some of the comedians I love are getting nods in the press. Now if only these clippings of far away success could fill the hole in my heart caused by their absence.]

The hysterical Dana Gould (#SF80s) has a brand new comedy special 'I Know It's Wrong' that airs tonight on Showtime at 10PM, so set your DVRs/make plans/hijack the remote at whatever bar your at and tell everyone to shut up to watch Dana say brilliantly, undeniably funny things as he does that so very well.

Finally, Moshe Kasher (Oakland Native) is developing a series for television so we can firstly, see the life of growing up in the Bay Area with deaf Hasidic Jew parents.

See him talk about his childhood here on Conan, then let’s hope this goes to series at Showtime soon to watch a fully actualized version of all that.

Joe Starr (SF00s) Has Recently Released a Great Stand-Up Album for $5 on Bandcamp
[I’m currently on my third listen and still finding new things to love in ‘Heroic Effort’. Starr gels with my immense love of pop-culture satire (pro-wrestling, Batman, Furries acutely dissected). He’s also, a natural performer, dramatic and poised. Sure, the audio quality is kinda bad — adds to the charm — and there’s a lot of options for cheap (or free) comedy but Heroic Effort ranks high in the DIY, self-released echelon.]

You might be thinking (false premise) “I like comedy and I like women, but when and where should those two meet?” I’ll tell you: in Portland, on October 17–20th. In its second offering the “All Jane No Dick” festival elevates some of the best comedians ever assembled. Shout-out to Amy Miller, Janine Brito, and Kyle Mizono, who’ve graced the SF Bay Area in very meaningful ways, and another shout-out to the numerous CC favorites on the bill

Debuts are complex things. You don’t want to muff it up, you don’t want to overstep your limitations, you don’t want to have an epiphany in post-production. Of the innumerable concerns of producing an aural benchmark for being a comedian, the only real one should be: am I funny in large doses. That’s why I dig this Indiegogo campaign. Anything that allows the comedians I enjoy to feel relief in pursuing their goals, gets a big swell of support from yours truly. Check out the link, donate what you can, have a nice day.]
