Well here’s a new/awesome/weird feeling: I’m in the TV Guide! Tune in on Monday 10/16 if you’d like to catch my National TV debut as host of Episode 2 of “Stories From The Stage”. The show is a collaboration between WORLD Channel, WGBH, & Massmouth Inc. highlighting real stories from real people told in a relaxed and welcoming environment. But before you catch me make sure to tune in on 10/9 to catch the series debut hosted by my amazing co-host Theresa Okokon. I believe it will be at 9:30ET but be sure to double check the listings in your market. I’m ridiculously psyched about this project which only exists due to the hard work of so many talented staff, crew members, & storytellers. I’m so thankful for the opportunity and I can’t wait to tune in! You can check out the series trailer HERE.

I was thrilled to be featured on a recent episode of The Story Collider podcast where I talked about comedy, Crohn’s Disease, my guts, and the night I came closest to death. I’ve linked directly to the episode on The Story Collider site HERE but it’s available anywhere you get your podcasts. I hope you enjoy!

So I recently enjoyed a brief but packed weekend trip to eastern Tennessee. Had a lot of fun but some of the highlights included: 1.) Visiting my first ever drive-thru liquor store 2.) Taking 2nd place at the story slam of the National Storytelling Festival 3.) Seeing my new book “Questions For Terrible People” on the shelf at a Barnes & Noble in Johnson City 4.) And best of all: meeting the “Blue Ridge Santa” off duty after the show. I noticed a very Santa-looking gentleman in the crowd but did not assume he was actually in the game. Afterward he introduced himself and we had a great chat. I’ve talked live performer shop with comics, poets, actors, magicians, musicians, burlesque performers, storytellers, & strippers but NEVER have I had the chance to get insight into the professional Santa game. It’s real out there. Best part was when he gave me his card and said “now, that number on the back is *protected*. Please be careful. If any kids get a hold of it it’s all over.” The secret is safe with me dude. To my people in the southeast: if you need a Santa hit up www.BlueRidgeSanta.com Until next time Tennessee!

So I’ve been given a full hour to talk to you fine people this Saturday night @ImprovBoston Nice. I’ll be doing some stand-up comedy & storytelling and in between I’m giving 3 mini presentations about 1.) My book “Questions For Terrible People” which officially drops that same day [available for order now] 2.) My adventures in Tinder, and 3.) 1972 motion picture classic Blacula! Maybe I’ll see you out there. #ImNotAfraidToDieAnymore

Two weeks ago I was prepping for a colonoscopy (which already kind of sucked) when I got hit with some emergency level chest pains. I’m not gonna lie, I thought there was a pretty decent chance that I was about to meet Prince. Luckily it turned out to just be acute pericarditis (yay?). That said, it still resulted in a nightmare Uber ride and 23 hours in the Emergency Room. When I finally got out I was feeling relatively fine, and well…damned if I didn’t have a show in 5 hours. I could/would/should have canceled but I knew I’d just feel worse about that later on so, yeah, I did the show. And it was a was blast! Here’s me talking about the whole thing at the penultimate Encyclopedia Show Somerville. Tonight is the very last one, so come through if you can!
P.S. Sorry Ma. Had to.
