So…I’ve been nominated for an Emmy* for Best Host/Moderator for my work on The Secret Worlds of Boston Comic Con. It’s delightful and surreal. Shout out to CBS Boston for giving me the chance and to the amazing crew and producers (Jonathan, Sean, & Brooke…who are also nominated for their work). I need tuxedo pants now.
*This is a New England –regional– Emmy but I’ll most definitely be counting it as 25% toward my EGOT status if I end up winning. It’s stiff competition so we’ll see…

Nice! I’m extremely pleased to have had the opportunity to appear on Boston Comic Ken Reid’s amazing podcast TV Guidance Counselor. Ken has been one of the funniest dudes in Boston for a long time now and his mind also happens to be a steel trap for pop cultural trivia. Each week he invites a guest to choose 1 of the TV Guide issues from his collection (I think he has a full run of 17 years worth) and he and the guest go over what they would have watched on that particular week in TV history. Ken’s had some big names & straight-up legends on the show such as Jonathan Katz, Paula Poundstone, Amy Sedaris, Kumail Nanjiani, & Paul Provenza so it was an especially cool experience to be invited on. It was a great conversation and so much fun. CHECK IT OUT HERE (You can listen via SoundCloud or iTunes)
I picked the week of June 28th – July 4th, 1997. As expertly noted by Ken we discussed:

The Steve Urkel / Stefan Urquelle show that I put together was last night and it was some serious fun. All the performers I invited crushed it, the venue was pitch perfect for the event, and the crowd was on-point. Of all the shows I’ve ever produced this one was by far the most intricate and labor-intensive and it was totally worth it. Hopefully I’ll have some video clips to share before the end of the month, but until then, here’s me doing my best Urkel rendition and also doing my best to keep the memory of Judy Winslow alive.
