Muppet Babies Brainstorm
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 with finished product. So Carlos and I re-wrote it and then 4 years later actually made it, and here it is!
Stay tuned through the credits, there’s a joke at the end, but also because the credits have the names of a lot of very cool and talented people that lent their time and energy to making a very dumb thing. And I think that (dramatic pause) is beautiful.
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 & pool series, you know I was on board. Plus, I got to hear my unborn (at the time) child get insulted. Wow. What a treat for everyone.
David McQuary’s Fluoride
David McQuary and I started stand-up around the same time. I’ve come to know him as this hyperactive comedic mind, always working on a new joke, forever tweaking old stuff, and just plain hilarious. Has his hyperspeed comedy brain ruined his life? Oh absolutely. He’s one bad Taco Bell experience away from shattering into a million pieces. But it also means that he has the dedication to create, write and animate his own cartoon, Fluoride. I’m the voice of Kroger, a lumpy, loudmouth (which, wow, what a way to find out what David thinks of me) dolphin. As I write this, four episodes are available and more are on the way. David is genuine comedic gem and getting new content from him is a big win for humanity.(more…)
I directed one episode of Yola Lu’s web-series Uncomfortable. Everyone working on it was very nice. I wore a hat the whole time, like Ron Howard. The episode is below. You can see the rest of the eps right here.

Ximena’s Post-Surgery Sketch Idea
Late last year my wife got her wisdom teeth removed. After the operation, I was talking to her in the recovery room and thought to myself, “maybe I should record this.” Here ya go:
Don’t Quit Your Day Job: United Way
United Way of Greater Austin made a whole bunch of videos where I talk to kids about Philanthropy. Were these kids impressed by me? Not in the slightest.
