Submitted For Your Approval

Recently, the Whiskey Journal out of Chicago was looking for writers and I submitted an article. If you haven’t heard of online paper, check it out right now. It’s an excellent site with excellent content and I wanted to share my story with you, so have a read.

“Naughty by Nurture” Now Believed To Be The Cause Of O.P.P.

Bloomington, IN – Fresh research has found those suffering from the debilitating condition known as “Other People’s P***Y or P***S (O.P.P.) have renewed optimism for this affliction. Dr. Jonathan Marks from the Kinsey Institute made the shocking announcement at the annual “Junk Drawer Conference”, which addresses lesser-known sexual proclivities.

O.P.P. is currently defined by the DSM IV as “A hereditary condition, which causes sufferers to seek out sexual relations with partners who are already in preexisting relationships”. Dr. Marks expects this definition to change with updated editions.

“We want the world to know, there is hope.” Said Dr. Marks “We’ve already begun working on behavioral therapies in order to get people off of their backs and back on their feet.” For decades, it was commonly accepted O.P.P. was caused by an individual’s being naughty by nature, but the researchers say this is no longer true. “In fact, it’s never been true. Remember, we lived in a day when Doctors advertised cigarettes, but we evolve with new information” Said Dr. Marks.

The experts aren’t the only ones thrilled by the announcement, people from across the country are rejoicing by the institute’s findings. “My mom always said my father was a ‘Rolling Stone’, so I figured my destiny was predetermined.” said Patrick “M. Dawg Shyamalan” Jenks, who watched the conference online. “But it was my attitude towards the “O.P.P.’ing” which was my ultimate downfall.” Mr. Jenks has said he has come to terms with the consequences of his actions and accepts them fully, he has also submitted his name for the first round of tests.

When reached for comment, Anthony “Treach” Criss, leader of the popular 90’s hip-hop trio Naughty By Nature (whose name is derived from the once believed leading symptom) stated; “We wrote this hot song based on the best possible science we could drop at the time.” Criss continued ”I don’t feel guilty for what we did, but ma[aaaa]n, I can’t say there aren’t some regrets.”

Dr. Marks is heading up the outreach effort and will seek federal dollars for an aggressive information campaign, as well as other resources. Those seeking more information can go to www.NOPP.org.


If I were hip, it would probably hurt

So it’s been some time since I posted my first entry into this blog, which was a deep and rousing exploration of this website, but now it’s time for entry dos! If you know me or have seen me perform, you’ll know I’m 36 years old and frankly, as a comedian, it weighs on me. Yeah…I’m about to get vulnerable right now, so strap in! So yes, age…I harp on it more than I should, but mainly in my head and being a 36 year old comic still relatively new in the scene has its pros and cons:

Pro: I’m far more confident as a performer on stage, because of my past comedy experience.

Con: I don’t like to hang out super late after shows, which can lose me opportunities for more gigs, growing relationships and great memories.

Pro: I have more to draw on for material, which influence my stand up and my voice.

Con: I don’t like Karaoke and/or wrestling.

Pro: I’m far more aggressive with my product, so I just go for as many shows as possible and work a lot.

Con: It’s hard to get it out of my head and sometimes acts as my greatest deterrent.

(As a note here, I don’t think younger comedians can’t feel all of this, as well, I’m just speaking truth to who I am and my beliefs.)

I try to focus on the pros more (of course), but yeah…the cons are there. I often think of Rodney Dangerfield and Mike DiStefano (RIP) who started late, made it late and let nothing stand in the way of success. These gentlemen (and others) prove it’s possible, but reminds me I have to bust ass ten times harder, produce more content (in many mediums) and get myself out there, there’s no time for f**king around.

I recently went to Minneapolis and saw the way the comedy community works and it energized me to step up my game, because no matter how much fun it’s still work. It’s wonderful work, it’s creative, it’s beautiful and it makes me thank the gods of skinny punks everyday I get to be a part of it and that my brain operates in such a fashion.

(Sometimes I veer off topic.)

You might think this entry sounds both whiney and cocky and you’re right, but it’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to…cry if I want to.

So in closing, I’m older, I’m sensitive, I love to sleep and I’ll only sing Karaoke if it’s Faith No More…all I need is a white stringed hoodie and I’ll be a real boy!


First post

It only makes sense the first entry into this blog would come at the beginning of the year. If you are new to this domain, for which I am the master, you should know this section isn’t solely dedicated to comedy. Here I will be talking about various projects, music, politics, religion and anything else I feel like vomiting all over this section (my deepest apologies to those with weak stomachs for the previous comment). As Steve Martin once said, “Comedy isn’t always pretty” and as I once said, “Comedy isn’t always funny.”

Thanks

//ABOUT ME

I am funny. I have certificates.

As it says at the top of the page (I’ll give you a moment to verify), I’m a comedian. I have been performing since 2007 in various formats including (but not limited to) improv, sketch comedy and standup. As a writer I have worked with the Broadminded sketch group, Sketch 22 and I was a contributor to the Committee of Five political blog. I’m also a student at The Second City Training Center for Writing.
