It’s that time again! As previously announced the 1st It Just Got Weirdo show was a blast and a total success, so we’ve turned it into a monthly thing and I couldn’t be happier to be bringing you #2 this Monday 9/16. We’ve got some straight-up luminaries of Boston comedy along with music AND fabulous giveaway/trivia prizes such as:
Yup, that’s right. If you go to this show you might just walk away with a VHS copy of the 1995 cinema classic Babe. I’m not aware of any show (comedy or otherwise) holding out that kind of promise. You’ll laugh, you’ll oink, you won’t regret it! See you there!
*Just in case you don’t know what to do it’s: ATTEND THIS SHOW. Danke.

The Grolier Poetry Book Shop is a Harvard Square landmark that’s stood in the service of verse for over 85 years. It’s the country’s oldest all-poetry book store and sort of shrine/haven/meet-up spot dedicated to everything beautiful and necessary that is poetry. Truly, it’s one of a kind. I’ve been lucky enough over the past year to not only have my debut chapbook Month of Sundays, added to the Grolier’s shelves, but to give a solo reading there as well. The staff and patrons have been an absolute pleasure and the experience has only deepened my love and respect for the shop. That’s why reading this piece on the uncertain future of the Grolier is particularly worrying.
Running a profitable brick and mortar indie book shop is a difficult task under circumstance, all the more so if you only sell poetry. The shop is up against a lot, no doubt. But still they continue to offer amazing art to the community. Check out their insane roster of upcoming readings for the fall. If you’re able I definitely urge you to visit, buy, donate and do whatever else you can to preserve the Grolier, it’s just too important to let slip away.
(My chapbook Month of Sundays is available at the Grolier, right at the register. It’s $2 and 100% of that goes to the shop).

Yes indeed, after a month long hiatus mandated by an insane Jay-Z/JT concert next door at Fenway, the Mixtape returns on Sunday 9/8 for another multi-genre extravaganza! We’ve got comedy, poetry, music & MAGIC in the house once again…plus some super-fun special guests…
Join us for laughs, tricks, tunes & of course Grandma’s famous scorpion bowls. Be there, you won’t be sorry.

Very pleased to be on the bill of this SUPER-stacked show on Wednesday. Seriously, some of Boston’s best comedic talent is going to be in the house in a VERY cool venue. Come on through…unless you hate having a good time…then you’ll probably want to avoid this.
Bit of a non-standard evening for me, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve been asked to do a reading of some of my comedic poetry and I’m pumped for the opportunity. Come see me with a mic AND a music stand as I get all Jabberwocky on your ass. (OK, not really, but I’ll be having fun, and if you come you will be too…see you there!)
