I haven’t posted a standup clip in a while, so here we go. This is me performing this past summer at the Hampton Beach Comedy Festival in front of a very lively crowd. I’m currently doing nearly all different material but this was a short fun set on a fun show, enjoy!

They have cool updates about me & my work but they *mostly* focus on sharing amazing content I’ve found and think you’ll enjoy too. I love curating awesome finds and sharing them with you and this is the most packed issue yet! If you like what you see be sure to subscribe to get them hot & fresh in your inbox!

Some sweet news: My book Questions For Terrible People was featured last month in The Style Invitational, the weekly humor/wordplay contest of The Washington Post. Columnist Pat Myers provided some sample questions and asked readers to write their own.
It was pretty cool to see so many submissions, and after writing 250 of these questions myself it was extremely interesting to see what readers came up with themselves. I had no part in the judging but the selections were uniformly intriguing. More than anything I was struck by just how…personal…a lot of these were. I mean, some of these folks were very clearly working out some life problems via submission to a humor column and I’m totally OK with that. Here are some of my potential-TMI favs:
* Have you ever hoped your kid’s team would fail to make the playoffs so you could have your weekends back again? (Jeff Contompasis, Ashbury, Va.)
* My teenager is consistently surly and rude, and says he wishes I weren’t his mother. Would putting him up for adoption be considered rewarding bad behavior? (Hilda Zampella, Falls Church, Va.)
* In a bargain with Satan, the funny anecdote you submitted to Reader’s Digest in 1982 will finally be published, but for the rest of your life you must shout out incorrect “Jeopardy!” answers at TV screens in airport bars. (Sandy Moran, Santa Rosa, Calif.)
You can check out the full list of notable submissions HERE.

So this is pretty exciting. On Friday 6/26/15 I’ll be the very first comic to take the stage at CBS Scene’s new comedy room at Gillette Stadium’s Patriot Place entertainment complex. Could not be more pumped, this place is legit and the comics I’ll be hosting for are 2 of Boston’s absolute best. Don’t miss out, you only get one first time…
