I’m in Minneapolis right now. This place has always been a home away from home for me and I will go out of my to come into town whenever I can. I angered some Russian boy band members in Coon Rapids last night which resulted in the first ever time that a man in a very tight suit and an adorable blonde quaff threatened my life whilst onstage. Some people still hold a grudge over the Miracle on Ice and that is more than understandable. It’s just nice to know that Jim Craig’s moment in the sun and brief journey around the cutthroat early 1980′s NHL was not in vain. Thanks, Jimmy.
Tonight I will tell this and other stories on My Brother’s Podcast with the always affable duo of Tommy and Shannon Thompson. Check out their show on iTunes .
p.s.- Sorry about the idiots thing earlier.
Things have been good! I am headed to one of my favorite states, Minnesota, this week and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ll be at Goonie’s in Rochester, MN on friday and saturday and Willy’s in Coon Rapids on sunday. So, like come on out, man.
So, I was supposed to record an EP a few weeks ago at the Comedy Castle. Unfortunately, none of the tapes came out and now I feel like a real jackamoke. Yea, a jackamoke. That’s a pretty rought statement, but I stand by it.
Fortunately, I already have another date to record. August 22-25 at Go Bananas. Mike Birbiglia recorded a few albums there so I’m honored and humbled to be in such great company. I’ll also be gettin’ loose during the day at the Cincy BrewHaHa, which will be a fantastic time. If you’re in the Cincy area that weekend, come on out.
In addition to this fantastic news, I have more fantastic news. I’ve finished the cover for the record. I used the Freaks and Geeks font. Very proud. Check it out below.
Hey guys, here is part of the cover of my forthcoming EP
After doing comedy for 4 years and in 15 different states, including Canada, I have decided to self-release a comedy EP. This will be the most anticipated comedy EP to hit bandcamp in the history of comedy EPs and also bandcamp. Needless to say, this is a pretty huge deal.
It will be called “Wherever They’ll Have Me” and I will be recording it July 11-13 at the Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, Mi. After that I will be editing it, so as to insure there is some level of laughter on it. And on August 20th, it will be available to the general public via bandcamp.com. Why bandcamp? Because I never went to band camp and I grew up watching those American Pie movies and it sounded like a good time. Also, I couldn’t figure out how to put it on iTunes.
Equally, bandcamp has a feature that allows the artist to name the price of their stuff. Equally, they allow the purchaser to donate more moneu if they really like the guy or maybe want to make him feel special or give him a few extra bucks for his trip to Ireland. Luckily, for you, that price will be almost insultingly low at $5.
So, I implore you to share this post and come out to one of the shows July 11-13 at the Comedy Castle. It will be extremely fun. Also, buy Wherever They’ll Have Me on August 20th at bandcamp.com
I have made some new t-shirts! They will be available come June and I will have they at all of my June and July dates. The image on the t-shirt, that I could probably be sued for, is below:
I will be selling these bad jacksons for $20. However, 5 of those dollars will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, which is a great charity that aims to help wounded members of our armed forces back home. It’s a great cause that I believe in and would like your help in kicking them a few sheckles.
Also, theres a new Wrasslin With O’Keefe over on that page.
