Regular Black Women is Back

After a long hiatus the Regular Black Women podcast is back. In case you missed it the first time...

Regular Black Women (RBW) is an uncensored informed podcast on politics, race, class, gender, current events, and culture from rabid libertarian to classically liberal perspectives (minus romance and religion).  It’s the cure for the common commentary.

Yeah, pretty much. RBW has already started recording and is set to re-launch now. I'd tell you who the guests are but that would not be very sporting would it? 


Listen to Regular Black Women on STITCHER RADIO or ITUNES

Sex Pizza and Super Adventure Podcast

Last month I was invited by the lovely Lauren Maul, aka Marilyn Powers  aka America's Scott Talent, to be a guest on her new podcast Sex Pizza. Joined by the incomparable Katie Compa we got real on death and corn silos, Maryland, and Midsomer Murders. It was a wild ride. Listen to Sex Pizza right up in here.

Sex Pizza, So exciting you'll puke glitter.

Friday Oct. 25 I am headed out to SI to record a Super Live Adventure podcast with John Szeluga and Chris Sorrentino. I met these fine fine gentlemen many years ago in an improve class. Really they were the best thing about the class. Drop by the Full Cup on Staten Island ( 388 Van Duzer Street) for the live recording followed by a Halloween part-tay. 


F - OFF!

After talking it up for over year I finally went and did it. I am starting the Festival of the Offensive.

"Festival of the Offensive (F-OFF) is dedicated to showcasing live performances that otherwise might not be produced because the establishment doesn't have the balls to produce it. Long live Lenny Bruce!"

F-OFF is now accepting application. Find out more and get involved with this madness at OffensiveFestival.comOh, and just so you know: 

"F-OFF is not some liberal lefty progressive NYC hippie theatre fest. Yes, yes we all love peace but we want to showcase work from all sides of the political spectrum. If you are a conservative artist, bring it. Moderate? Bring it. We'll even accept Libertarians* and Constitution Party people. Who does that? "

Go forth and offend!

Dark Times feat. Laurie Lattimer

Just wanted to give a shout out to my friend Laurie Lattimer for her appearance in Dark Times. We met in a PIT writing workshop and her stories blew me away. Check her out.

  • Dark Times: A Comedic Variety Hour

    Wed., May 22, 9:30pm
    $5 at the PIT

    DARK TIMES is a variety show that takes our audience on an epic journey as we battle the forces of darkness and evil that separate us from our ultimate (undetermined) destinies.

    This show was inspired by a poignant evening on NBC's "The Voice," where a contestant found himself going through "dark times" after dropping out of NYU's graduate program for music business to pursue his true calling: slightly faltering karaoke singing.His parents seemed very disappointed.Hosted by Megan Lohne and Melissa Somosky, Dark Times will be an evening of sketch comedy, stand-up, storytelling, music, and anything else that might help us laugh our way out of our mild depression.We'll never be able to make our parents happy, but we can put on a variety show to pursue our empty dreams. Dark, dark times.Featuring the Comedic Stylings of Ryan Darden, Katie G.
