How to Perform at Colleges
A lot of comedians ask me how to get into the college game, so I’m going to make it nice and easy. The easiest way to get into the college game is by showcasing at a conference called NACA (National Association of Campus Activities). There are 6 regional showcases (Mid-America, South, Central, Northern Plains, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic) and then one national showcase every year....

Five years ago, Barry Rothbart, Dan Boulger and I made an internet pilot for SuperDeluxe that didn’t get picked up. The premise was remarkably similar to that of the movie Mystery Team. I was a 22 year-old detective who still solved kid crimes. Though none of us knew about that script. Just parallel thinking.

The 15 Funniest Tweets of ShitMyDadSays
ShitMyDadSays is a twitter account where a guy writes all the funny things his 74 year-old dad says. I read through them all and here are the 15 best: “Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit’s in someone else’s pants.” “Who in the fuck is tila tequila? Is she a stripper?…That’s her?...
A Letter from LeBron to Cleveland
As a someone who grew up in Cleveland, I always loved LeBron. We’re the exact age - both born in December ‘84. One of my friends even guarded him in a high school game. And since we had similar upbringings, I really couldn’t understand how he could be so disloyal. I mean if I had his talent, not only would I refuse to play for any team except Cleveland, I’d take a pay...
Apples and Poverty
I’m basically only writing this post because I want anyone who saw me on Last Comic Standing and googles the joke to find me. I don’t like the expression apples and oranges. Apples and oranges are easy to compare - they’re both fruits. It should be two things that are hard to compare, like apples and poverty. Although, that doesn’t work because both keep the doctor...

Last Comic Standing
I’m on Last Comic Standing tonight at 9pm on NBC. Hopefully they don’t screw me over by making me look like an idiot. I’ve been burned in the past by a certain reality show. Let’s just call it Schamerica’s Got Talent. I made it deep into the semi-finals of that show, and then told all my friends to watch it. They wouldnt tell me which episode I was gonna be in, so...
Fuck you, LOST
Tonight, LOST, you took a giant shit. In the words of Hurley, “You made a great number 2.” Worst finale ever. You didn’t answer any of my questions. You just basically just took an entire season to waste my time with a “flash sideways” that ended up being pergatory or some shit and had no connection to the parallel universe. I figured they’d connect in the...

My Top Twenty Comics
This Top 20 list was not based on credentials or influence. Plenty of comics, such as Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor or Lenny Bruce, had a ground-breaking approach that improved the art of stand-up comedy and helped inspire my favorite comics. But this list is just who makes me laugh the hardest. 1. Louis CK 2. Patton Oswalt 3. Bill Burr 4. Woody Allen 5. Mitch Hedberg 6. David Cross 7. Paul F....
How to Start Doing Stand-Up Comedy
How to Be a Stand-Up Comic A BEGINNER’S GUIDE A lot of fellow young people ask me what first steps they should take when trying to become a stand-up comedian. I thought I’d make a nice little blog explaining it. The two main rules are: 1. Keep Writing and 2. Keep Getting Up. Keep a small comedy journal on you at all times and write down every funny little thought you have. Or at least keep a...
