J.R.R. Tolkien: Bestselling Author & 20th century Boss of All Nerds.
Or at least that’s the story so far. On Monday May 12 check out The Literary Roast at Oberon in Cambridge, MA where I’ll be delivering my best takedown of that overly revered Hobbit author. It will be an exciting evening of comedy, poetry, burlesque, music & more as formerly untouchable literary sacred cows such as Poe, Plath, David Foster Wallace, Emily Dickinson are exposed! This is a crazy collection of Boston talent all in one place for one night only. Booze, boobs, bards & barbs…PLUS Haterade (the evening’s specially designed cocktail). DO IT!
Hope to see you there, tickets are HERE.
P.S. All items in the pic on the right above were ready to hand, within 10 ft of where I sleep. I’m on a mission to take Tolkien’s nerd title…

They said it couldn’t be done.
But they were wrong. You CAN create an entire show around a single episode of a TV show that aired 20 years ago, and, by God I mean to do it! And I’d love to see you there!
On November 12, 1993 our lives were changed. On that fateful night Family Matters’ Steve Urkel (worldwide undisputed King of Nerds) drank his “Cool Juice” and for the first time unleashed Stefan Urquelle, The Superlative Sultan of Suave.
Join us we pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of that iconic episode with a hilarious & reflective evening of stand-up, sketch, comedic lecture, trivia & more! We’ll be celebrating the show, Urkel, and his alter ego, all while examining such issues as Black identity, Black nerdom/geekdom, and the perception of race in pop culture.
The evening will include all of that AND it’s being held inside just about the coolest comic book shop any true nerd could hope for!!!
