Hello! I'm a writer, performer, and professionally funny person who lives in Los Angeles. Here's some links to stuff I do and have done! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to work with me or just say hi.
FEATURE AND HUMOR WRITING
I've also served as a researcher for TV and video projects, helping create pitch decks and do background research for comedy scripts.
THE INTERNET READ ALOUD
I host a live comedy monthly comedy show in Los Angeles! If you’ve ever yearned to have LA’s funniest people explain the horrors that lurk within ALF message boards, Sonic the Hedgehog’s fan art archives, the Flat Earth Wiki, James Franco’s YouTube channel, or their own Tinder in-boxes, this is the show for you. Subscribe on Facebook for updates on future shows and carefully curated Internet jokes. Performances are every first Friday of the month at 8 pm, at The Clubhouse in Los Feliz.
If you are a funny person who wants to be in the show, please email me at email@example.com and tell me your idea/sad story about how the Internet has warped your mind and ruined your life.
The Enthusiast is my first novel. It’s about trains, comics, stealth marketing, capitalism, and joy.
You can buy it in hardcover for $25 or paperback for $15 from TopatoCo, as a DRM-free ebook for $8 from Gumroad, or as a paperback or Kindle ebook from Amazon. You can read the first chapter at Medium or listen to me read the third chapter on the Catapult podcast. I originally launched this book as a Kickstarter, and I’m very proud of how it came out.
THE COMICS CURMUDGEON
I've been blogging about newspaper comic strips, the squarest art form on the planet, since 2004! This has made me pretend Internet famous and proved that, against all odds, there's a market for sex jokes about Mary Worth.
