The Bridgetown Comedy Festival is just a few days away and I’m stoked to perform alongside some great comics and catch up with my cousin who lives in Portland. Click on the image below to be taken to my performer page, which has a list of all the shows I’ll be in.
Some people have asked, so I figured I should answer publicly: yes, I’m still alive. Yes, I still perform stand-up comedy. No, I haven’t made it yet. Yes, I do care. Sort of.
Thankfully, there are some things in the works. In mid-late April, I’m excited to be a part of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR. I just did my first comedy festival earlier this year, SF Sketchfest, and that was a lot of fun. Having been rejected by many festivals (including Bridgetown two years ago), this streak (is two enough to be considered a streak?) of festival acceptances has me feeling good.
And I’ll be doing shows here and there in LA. Connect with me on facebook to get the freshest, bestest news about my activities.
Hey everyone, that contest I’ve been annoying you all about at http://comedycontest.on24.com/ is finally almost done. Voting ends today at 9pm PST, so if you haven’t already, vote! Tell your friends to vote! And watch these videos I made about why people should vote for me.
As I posted before, last year on my birthday I was on a flight where an engine caught on fire and we had to make an emergency landing. I was compensated $300 (initially $100, they increased it a few days afterward) and that was it. Well now, with your help, it might turn into something much more lucrative!
ON24, a company that offers marketing and numerous resources for businesses, is doing an ad campaign for their virtual meeting services and they had comedians tell travel horror stories. They only picked 5 comedians, including me, and are now having the public vote on the videos in a contest. The winner receives $10,000 and some valuable exposure. Voting is quick and every vote is extremely helpful! Please go to the contest website and vote for me!
As an attempt to fit in with everyone else in Los Angeles, I’ve recently started getting more into acting and writing. On the acting front, I’m really excited to be a part of an upcoming movie by my friend, the talented Ian Wang. It’s a movie called The Deadline, and it’s a dark comedy about the United States Government starting an online video contest for prospective immigrants. I’ll be playing the guy announcing the video contest to the world.
Please go to the movie’s Kickstarter page to watch the trailer and consider donating to the project. I’ve got another awesome acting project that I will be posting about in the next week or two.
This is pretty much just for comics or anyone looking for something to do in Burbank on a Monday night. Along with my good friend Sammy Obeid, I’m co-producing a new open mic at The Office Bar & Grill. Sign-ups start at 9 and the show gets started around 9:30. See the map below for location.
