5 Reasons Groot Is the Greatest Hero of the 21st Century

Alex Schmidt isn’t just the funniest man at the stand-up show last week; he’s also a super wonderful dude who understands Groot is the only thing tying those ragtag goofballs together.

“His favorite thing in life is trash, as evidenced by the song “I Love Trash”.”

The Oscar the Grouch entry sees your skepticism about Wikipedia’s reliability, and raises it COLD HARD FACTS.

5 Reasons Groot Is the Greatest Hero of the 21st Century

Directed by Adam “The Commissioner” Ganser, produced by Jen and Breandan, edited by Tim Merlau, and really glad/impressed we could get it up while Guardians is still the #1 movie in America.

Tomorrow, 9pm, free show (I think), at The Lexington in DTLA. I’ll be doing stand-up in that exact outfit/hat/mustache.
Also here’s a favorite joke of mine about cowboy outfits.

Kinda Racist? Try Diet Racism!

Right length, right joke, and Murph and Julie Brister are in it! And I’d bet it passes the “is this such a good sketch premise you could do the kernel of it as stand-up” test.

Point is it’s well worth your 90 seconds YOU RACIST.

I’ve been co-writing and co-producing a web show called Tough Love. It’s about an uptight young gay man named Steven and his sloppy, brash freshly-minted lesbian best friend Blaire. They live together in New York City’s third-coolest borough and are barely surviving friendship and dating.

Now Tough Love has a Kickstarter! We’re raising money to finish our second season and keep exploring interesting gay characters defined by more than their sexuality.

Rewards include a sext conversation with co-lead Blaire, a discounted online meditation course, copies of the scripts, and exclusive mini-episodes only for backers!

Watch our Kickstarter video—which doubles as a new episode.

These people are the best and they will do better things with your ten dollars than you would.

“I can learn from my failures when it comes to an audience. I can learn from questions like, “What didn’t they like about it? Who didn’t like it?” Instead of abandoning it, instead of being angry, instead of getting on my high horse and being arrogant and becoming unapproachable, I can look at why something didn’t work.
But I’ll never do that with a critic. Critics seem to have some personal axe to grind. They all like to be protagonists, and they all like to be in the ring with you, except they have no right to be in the ring with a creator.”

Mel Brooks, Poking A Dead Frog

Our miniature book club’s finishing this book up and it’s crazy-good. Maybe even better than the first one. And I’d bet you all the money a third one’s coming dedicated to Internet people.
