I had a blast doing the monologues last night for Horatio Sanz’s show as part of the Del Close Marathon. If you’re in New York City come down to UCB and get involved in the 72 hours of insanity.
If you’re not in New York but you have Sirius XM, you can listen to the whole marathon online! You don’t need a radio - it’s an exclusive Internet broadcast. You might even be able to sign up for the free 3 day trial and access it. Not sure, but it’s worth a shot.
The one show you absolutely cannot miss at the marathon is MATCH GAME ‘76 tonight at 2:00 AM (EST). It’s always crazy. I’ll be there appearing as one of America’s favorite alleged rapists.
Performing and attending at the 10th Marathon is one of the many, many highlights of my improv experiences. If you’re in New York go check it out.
Also the drive out west (“SchmidtTrek”) had made me wonder whether a show could potentially use every epic locale in the country, sort of like what Breaking Bad does with Albuquerque but on a much grander scale. Good chance this show does it.
I don’t read Simmons all the time, but my buddy Joel pointed me to this. Within a massive article all about all sorts of different things, Bill Simmons successfully breaks down the last 35 years of mainstream comedy (he even picks an excellent start year, 1975, the beginning of SNL), choosing a “comedy MVP” for each year.
There might be a part of it I disagree with, but I’ll need to think a lot harder to come up with one.
I really, really like Devin Faraci’s take on Inception. He has presented a few ideas that I’ll take with me when I watch the film again.
However, I think with this film as with the films of David Lynch: “it’s whatever you think it means.” There’s no wrong way to interpret the film and its meanings. And Roger Ebert is right: it’s okay to not like Inception.
Personally, I loved the film and can’t wait to see it again.
Read this post viewing. Excellent.
Must read for those who have seen it.

My friends Chris and Cole figured a lot of this out before we got out of the parking lot. I’m very impressed with them.
The post really lays it out in a great way though.
