Cap City Comedy Club Forever

Posted on Sep 10, 2020 in stuff

Despite what you might have read, Cap City Comedy Club isn’t closing. It can’t close. That’s like saying the letter U in Austin is closed. “Astin”? It’s ridiculous and a little insulting. So can we just all stop? When I started hitting the open mics on a regular basis, Cap existed as an impenetrable emerald […]

Master Pancake: Hard Ticket to Hawaii

Posted on Jul 16, 2020 in stuff

Remember 2019? Sorta, right? Back in November of 2K19, I teamed up with Master Pancake Theater’s John Erler and The Mads of MST3K, Frank Coniff and Trace Beaulieu, and together we made jokes over the 80’s action breastravaganza, Andy Sidaris’s Hard Ticket to Hawaii. It was a fun show. Great crew and oh, what an […]

Scare Package

Posted on Jul 6, 2020 in stuff

Dear diary, The horror comedy anthology film Scare Package is now available to stream on Shudder. If you’re keen of eye and pure of heart, you’ll be able to catch my sweaty face during the Chris McInroy-directed segment, One Time in the Woods. I’ve been a fan of Chris’s work for while so it was […]

The Year in Review 2019 – Live Show Recording

Posted on Mar 24, 2020 in stuff

Bored? 2019 seems like a million years ago and you can’t remember a single thing that happened? Good news! Here’s the audio from last December’s The Year in Review Show. Lisa Friedrich and myself gathered together over 50 of Austin’s brightest comedic minds at Cap City Comedy Club to roast and recap the year. It’s […]

The Return of Draw Egan

Posted on Feb 27, 2020 in Shows

I got contacted more or less out of the blue and asked if I wanted to work on this project, re-writing a silent movie. Justin Sherburn and his band / multimedia wizard team Montopolis were going to screen the silent western, The Return of Draw Egan (1916) and provide a score of Ennio Morricone music […]

The Year in Review Show 2019

Posted on Dec 19, 2019 in Shows

It’s time again for The Year in Review show. Yes! You can’t see it but I’m fist pumping out of control over here. NO, not like THAT. Y’know, an excited fist pump? Like something a tennis player would do after a great… racket whack? Hold on, still fist pumping. Just two more. There we go. […]

Closing out the decade at Cap City

Posted on Dec 17, 2019 in Shows

That’s a dramatic way of saying I’ll be headlining Cap City Comedy Club Thursday, December 26 to Saturday December 28. One show Thursday, two shows Friday and Saturday. Doing shows at Cap is always fun and getting 5 shows to stretch out and get a little loopy is a real joy. After a few toe-dips, […]

Muppet Babies Brainstorm

Posted on Dec 11, 2019 in videos

After STAG Comedy’s last live show in 2015, friendly comedian Carlos LaRotta said he was itching for a vid to direct. I threw him some old scripts and he picked out Muppet Babies Brainstorm. I actually filmed an earlier version of MBB for my first STAG Comedy show back in 2009, but was never satisfied […]

The Banter Show is back (and then gone again)

Posted on Dec 4, 2019 in Shows

For one night only, the Banter Show returns to the Velveeta Room! Last February’s show ended Banter’s run at the Velv, as Ximena and I prepared for our baby (Baby update: baby is great). But when Pat Dean at the Velveeta Room asked us if we wanted to do a one-off show to close out […]

Scratch City

Posted on Nov 27, 2019 in videos

I never pass up an opportunity to show just how bad at pool I am. Even visually. People report that seeing me play just doesn’t look right. Like a horse wearing glasses. So when Taylor Dowdy asked me to match sticks against my friend and yours Aaron Brooks for a pilot/proof of concept comedy & […]
