Come on out tomorrow to meet me and Jack and Soren and Cody and Michael and a bunch of other Cracked.com folks. We’ll be reading from and signing copies of our new book, The De-Textbook. Jokes will happen. And so on.
Would you like to marinate in the real-life essence of Cracked’s Jack O’Brien, Dan O’Brien, Soren Bowie, Michael Swaim, Cody Johnston, and Adam Tod Brown? Would you also like to hear some waggish banter and get a copy of The De-Textbook signed? Well, December 10th (this Tuesday) is your lucky day!
TODAY: Cracked returns to Comikaze with afternoon book signings and a panel at 3pm. Meet us IRL and see a brand-new sketch!
EVEN BIGGER NEWS: if you bring a copy of The De-Textbook with you, WE WILL SIGN IT from 4-6pm (and then stop due to vicious hand-cramping).
"Los Angeles is covered in smog. We need to run tests to find out how this will affect people living there."
"OK, let’s put a big plastic bucket on some woman’s head and pump smog into her eyes to see how much that bugs her."
"Jesus, what? Isn’t there a less awful way to do this?"
"Probably. What’s your point?"
"Right, I’ll get the goggles!"
HEY LOS ANGELES: we’re at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo this weekend, signing our new book and doing two panels! You’ll never get a better shot at determining official Cracked Staffer Body Odor Power Rankings.
One day I’ll be a good enough self-promoter that I’ll have a page that regularly updates with my stand-up dates, but that day is not today. Here are some upcoming shows.
8/27/13 The Web Show Show- This isn’t stand-up, but it is live. I’ll be on a panel with my good friend Alec from 5SecondFilms and total stranger EpicLloyd from Epic Rap Battles of History talking about sketches and After Hours and evaluating a bunch of sketches from some up-and-coming comedy troupes, which I think means I’ve graduated into old man status. It’s at Westside Comedy Theater.
9/3/13 Cracked Presents Unpopular Opinion- Cracked does a live show the first and third Tuesday of every month, and I am almost always on it. It’s a good mix of Cracked personalities plus real comedians. This show features Cracked’s Adam Tod Brown and one of my favorite not-yet-famous comedians, Nick Rutherford.
10/1/13 Cracked Presents Unpopular Opinion- See? I told you I almost always do it. Because I do this show at least once a month at the same theater for largely the same audience, I do a brand new set each time, so there’s no fear of seeing the same jokes. This show features the lovely and kind Laurie Kilmartin (Conan O’Brien), Mo Mandel and another secret special guest maybe (probably).
See Dan and/or our show! This calendar thingie has tickets.
Wondering where Soren’s been? Check the neon.
I got to spend a night in the passenger seat of a patrol car as it hurtled through the mean streets of Los Angeles County’s upper crust. A department of law enforcement I’ve agreed not to name read about my recent altercation with the LAPD and offered a ride-along through a fairly wealthy neighborhood as an olive branch. An olive branch I gladly accepted, then promptly used to crush the windpipe of crime with my new partner.
Sorry, but traffic’s so bad we’re thisclose to considering using LA’s subway.
