I’m currently writing new comedy in such a prolific mania that I cannot predict what jazz tone will come out of me Saturday. It could be “One Night In Tunisia” or it could be “Root Down.”

I have a literary piece coming out in March in the next issue of The Intentional Quarterly, which is available online and in major bookstores.
Comedy wise, I’m roasting the panda Bao Bao at the Brixton next Tuesday.

My outfit, per usual.

Hopefully a lot more comedy, writing, performing, whatever i can put my hands in…who can say for sure? Life has been a crazy ride and I’ve recently learned to just enjoy the ride. You know Jesus (or whoever) take the wheel (or whatever). Google me though, they’ll know when I know, if not before.

President Barack Obama. I heard he was going to be there. He won’t follow me on Twitter though he does follow people in Canada who can’t even vote for him.

Why?

I have no idea why he follows Canadians. I’m sure they’re fine people but honestly what do we really know about them?

Do you have anything special in store for Saturday?

I’d love to ask The President what kind of dirt Canada has on him. There is clearly no other reason why he would follow those guys over me.

A trip to Canada. Obviously.
