Thanks to my super cool buddy Jason Malmberg for taking me to see Jon Hamm, Andy Richter, Kevin Pollack, and more doing a live reading of “Stinker Gets Loose” at The Castro Theater today. Talking with Malm on the way there and back and seeing this creative retro energy and love made me realize what a great thing I’ve squandered with the retroCRUSH site and podcast. Gonna bring it back and build that audience back up again. In it’s heyday, retroCRUSH had more than 600K monthly visitors, was the talk of may publications and media, and my podcast got as many as 30K subscribers. It’s stupid to not bring it all back to help promote my comedy, books, records, and appearaences. Coming soon, y’all! Thanks

…for not stopping me from bringing a copy of my book to put on your shelf! Amy seems pretty cool with it. I wonder what will happen when someone tries to buy it? I was inspired by Mitch Hedberg’s joke, “The only way I could get my old CD into a store is if I were to take one in and leave it. Then the guys says, “Sir, you forgot this!” “No, I did not. That is for sale. Please alphabetize it.”
It’s a testament to how amazing Freeman, Caine, and Arkin are as actors that they manage to make this piece of shit watchable. Zach Braff directs this one in his sleep for a paycheck and the script by Theodore Melfi who wrote the really good “Hidden Figures” and “St. Vincent” is a predictable bore. Extra small roles by Christopher Lloyd and Ann Margret are nice, but it’s the headliners that shine. They give it their charming best and watching them in action somehow makes this a passable movie.
Though I could appreciate what Jerry Lewis brought to the world of comedy, I wasn’t his biggest fan. But his role as Jerry Langford in Martin Scorsese’s oddball 1982 film “The King of Comedy” as a dour late night TV host was really something great.
What a thrill to be on Capital Public Radio’s “Insight With Beth Ruyak” earlier this week. You can CLICK HERE to listen to the episode. I’m on during the last 7 minutes of the show. This was all happening the Monday after that Nazi rally in Virginia, so most of the first part of the show is dedicated to that. I almost got bumped off the live broadcast, but fortunately Donald Trump didn’t talk too long.
