I have come up with the perfect Halloween-related character and character monologue. It’s super, super funny. Either someone book me on a show in the next few hours or someone remind me of this post in slightly less than one year.
imwithkanye: Bonfire | Childish Gambino Donald Glover’s summer camp horror movie music video for ‘Bonfire,’ the lead single from Camp.

A Phone Conversation
Caller: Hey, it's the pizza guy. Meet me outside in five minutes.
Me: ...are we gonna duel?
Four friends, rage burning inside them, make a stand for friendship and peace.
uncannybrettwhite replied to your post: this is a serious problem Saturday night! Saturday night! I don’t know what’s happening…but Saturday night! That’s what I’m doing. But the girlfriend and I have Friday night and Saturday night costumes! (we couldn’t agree on whose idea was better) (mine is)
this is a serious problem
My desire to see comedy shows tonight is flying in the face of my desire to do Halloween stuff. Who wants to be super cool and go see improv shows while wearing full costume?* *I really don’t think Cathleen is going to agree to this.

Is a liberal arts degree worth it? →
emmaleighwaldron: Spoilers: YES. (Sometimes it kind of bums me out that we keep having to defend the inate value of the arts and humanities. Why don’t people understand yet that BOTH science and art are important?) Also I really like this point: “Once artificially intelligent machines like Watson take over jobs in even advanced fields, like medicine, the jobs that will remain will require...

salgentile: Sorry, this works now. My liberal arts degree did not teach me how to copy and paste. This is even better now that I can read it. Good stuff.
thechrisgethardshow: Here’s a link to our best episode yet, by a mile. Connor Ratliff debated Jimmy McMillan in a presidential debate that was unfortunately double booked with our Halloween Spooktacular. It was a surreal, amazing experience. Issues were genuinely dealt with, awkwardness was definitely felt, and both candidates had amazing, hilarious moments. On top of that, don’t miss the song...

Brown's Mumbler: Pay it forward →
coreybrown: Try to remember what you needed when you were just starting as an improviser. Try to remember those things that helped you get over some slumps. Remember the first time someone you admired as an improviser walked up to you and told you they loved a specific move you made during a show, even… Corey Brown is one of the best.

Good news, everybody! The other night at the Kaleidoscope charity raffle, I won two free “techings” from tech-master extraordinaire/good name-haver Jon Barcelo! This means he will tech my next two shows completely free of charge. Unfortunately, as of now, I don’t actually have two shows that need teching. So, I’m going to make two shows that need teching. Will it be a...
How YouTube Has Ruined The Art Of The Crappy... →
This is a column I wrote decrying political campaigns’ attempts to purposefully make bad ads in an attempt go viral which dovetails with my feelings on the “weirdening” of marketing as a whole and which I compare to ruining of the term “cult” movie. I think it came out nicely. Feel free to read it.
frankhejl: I’ve directed this great sketch group before. They have a funny new video out that you should watch! The Charlies - Racist Zombies I saw them do this live a few weeks ago. Super fun.
Without exaggeration , this might be my favorite thing ever written.
Poupak's Parisian Life in New York: TONIGHT →
poupak: I was going to write about this show and it popped up on my Tumblr dashboard! I am fulfilling one of my dreams with this show: Staging a Star Trek (classic) scene! Of course, it’s a parody, but I have the PERFECT Captain Kirk, the PERFECT Bones, the PERFECT Spock, and the PERFECT red shirts! … Hey, did I mention this show was tonight? I might have. Not sure. COME.
