Writer’s Guild Strike

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Our new episode, “B Train Blues,” is brought to you without the benefit of any writing. I sat this one out. Here I am in a photo taken by the superlative photographer and great friend Linda Gale Gellman, standing on the picket line last week with striking Writer’s Guild members in South Beach, Florida.

What is it?

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

I was struck by this picture of “Zip the What is It”. Zip was born William Henry Johnson in Liberty Corners, NJ in 1857 to William and Mahalia Johnson, former slaves. He was hired by Barnum into the American Museum in 1860. Zip’s stage intro came mere months after the publishing of Darwin’s “Origin of [...]

Behind the Scenes

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007 “The Gobbler” involved lots of extra creative activity. Here’s one extra, a music video with me singing one of my own compositions, “The Turkey Song.” It’s my singing debut and perhaps finale. People ask us why we don’t post episodes more often. The answer is we do all the work ourselves. And there is [...]

“Home? I have no home”

Friday, October 26th, 2007 “Home? I have no home. Hunted. Despised. Living like an animal! The jungle is my home. But I will show the world that I can be its master. I will perfect my own race of people. A race of atomic supermen which will conquer the world. Hahahahahaha.” Bela Lugosi in “Bride of the Monster” [...]

Episode Two: The Landlord [ QuickTime ]

There’s Something Wrong

Thursday, September 27th, 2007 Seems like a bad commercial parody but it’s real! “Health product” companies dominate primetime TV ads. Many of their commercials feature: 1. Fantasy scenarios with feel-good music, bright, happy colors and high-key lighting. 2. Genial but fast-talking narrators who are required to describe nasty side effects at length at the end of each commercial. [...]

Roommate Hell

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

It all seemed so unfair. These were my college roommates, the best I could negotiate, from 1978-81: A Greek guy with a mania for Brut cologne. -A gay man who put lotion on his legs every night. -A redshirt football player who was an all right kinda guy. -A group of mellow deadhead/artists. -A house [...]

Is it Funny? You decide.

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Here’s an animated prank phone call as seen on a new UK TV show called “Fonejacker.” The prankster is Iranian comic Kayvan Novak. It’s kind of like a cross between Peter Sellers and Abbott and Costello. An instant classic. Thanks Brian, good one!

Captain Weird

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007 The amazing Charlie Callas in a classic bit of tomfoolery. Charlie reminds me of a live Don Martin character. He cured an early stuttering problem by practicing Shakespeare and started out as a drummer. His fellow musicians in The Tommy Dorsey Band, where he got his start, talked him into becoming a comic. In [...]

We were awarded an Emmy at the 34th Annual Creative Arts and Entertainment Emmy® Awards, presented on Thursday June 14 at a black-tie gala at Hollywood’s Hollywood and Highland Ballroom. I was there and accepted the Broadband Variety Emmy Award, despite having my tuxedo pants falling down. Nevertheless, it was The American Dream come true. [...]
