Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Yuks from Yesteryear

You can’t possibly be expecting much from me today. I get lazy with weekend posts even when I’m around. And this weekend I’m on vacation, so you know you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel.

(Hey, what do you want? I’m probably curled up in a sombrero somewhere right now, sleeping off a tequila-soaked game of ‘Sling the Burrito‘.

I don’t even know if that’s a euphemism. I’ll tell you when I get home, muchacho.)

Anyway, I realized a while back that although I’ve claimed to have performed standup for two full years, you’ve got no real evidence of a single tasteless public punchline since April of last year.

Until now.

So please, have a gander at the newly-updated Standup Comedy Journal feature. Nine clips from summer through winter of 2005 are loaded and awaiting your stunned silence and sadly shaking heads.

“While you now have evidence of my more recent public humiliations, there’s nothing to suggest that I haven’t switched over to telling jokes in an unlit broom closet.”

Unfortunately, the video quality on many of these clips leaves a bit to be desired. A bit of light, to be exact. While you now have evidence of my more recent public humiliations, there’s nothing to suggest that I haven’t switched over to telling jokes in an unlit broom closet. I’ll see what I can do about that when I return home. In the meantime, feel free to treat them as audio-only clips, and shake sadly along with the studio audience.

If you haven’t seen — or just heard, in this case — any of the comedy clips here, please allow me to recommend the two September shows from the Comedy Studio in Cambridge as an excellent starting point. Those were sets I performed on back-to-back weekend nights, with different material in each and generally warm crowd reactions.

Which means those also probably make an excellent ending point, since most of the other clips are missing either a sizable crowd, a receptive crowd, and/or me actually being arguably funny. So it’s nice to have those two shows — even if you can’t actually see me in them at this point.

Anyway, check one out if you’ve got a fast connection and a few minutes to kill. Maybe I’ll have more to upload later this year, once the itch to ridicule myself in front of strangers returns.

(No, I don’t see how writing here doesn’t satisfy that itch, either. Maybe it’s because I can’t actually hear you booing your monitor. Who knows?)

All right, that’s all you get today. It’s the weekend; go mow the lawn or take a nap or round up the gang for a game of ‘Pin the Taquito on the Senorita‘ or something. I’m on vacation. Shoo!
