HOW TO WEEP IN PUBLIC: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows 

Check out my book, a humor memoir/guide that features my tales of depression and tips for time spent on the floor.  Go to the Weep in Public page for details and links to purchase. 

A very special show. A Quality Notions west coast release party. The inimitable John Early hosts. Guests include: Michael Showalter, Chelsea Peretti, Kate Berlant and a super secret musical guest. And I headline. The Virgil. Go find the event of FB and click attending. First come first serve on getting in. It's free. 

Indeed, I released the best comedy album of 2014 and I did it all on my lonesome. 

I think you'll agree the result is avant garde and quite courageous. 

The album's called Quality Notions because, hey, that's what I offer.

Do consider purchasing it, because, people report loving when one of my notions pops up during a music shuffle. 

Here is a sample track, a strange one!

Hilarious Video Promo #02

The following video is, in theory, a promotional item I made to herald the album's digital release, but it so transcends that, don't you think? Criticwire sure thought so, reporting:  "a comedy album's viral video doubles as a hilarious and devastatingly insightful parody of the clash of critical egos." Thanks for noticing. Also for calling it viral

It was directed by Doron Max Hagay, and shot by Daniel Rampulla, whom I will continue to collaborate with in the future. In fact Eye on Art might become a regular series. 

No I am not physically in the film, but I did write the thing. Please don't go crediting these actors with improvising lines. That was strictly prohibited and corporeally enforced. 

HIlarious Video Promo #01 

If you missed the live album recording of Quality Notions, it's probably because you didn't catch this film.

We made the film, yes, film, in order to create a stir.

I mean, one must.

Fear not, this film does feature a girl we'll call me.
