All-New Shows with the Magic Meathands

Improv comedy group The Magic Meathands are kicking off a brand-spanking new show schedule in July! And as always, I’ll be performing with them as often as they’ll let me.

Fridays are for Funnies! (aka: Thursdays no more)
After 2 years of Thursday Night Comedy Cafe, the Meathands are moving to Friday nights! We’ll be there to help you kick off the weekend! Here’s how it breaks down (get out your pencil, take notes carefully):

  • 1st Friday of every month, we’re at the Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica with The Waterbrains and Mission IMPROVable. We’ve been doing this show for several months now and it continues to get stronger and stronger. Showtime: 8 PM. Tickets: $10 for all 3 groups.
  • 2nd & 4th Friday of every month, we’re at our old stomping grounds The Spot Cafe and Lounge in Culver City. We’ll be having special guests and themes, so watch for details. Showtime: 8 PM. Tickets: $5.
  • 3rd Friday of every month, as part of our Community Outreach program, we’ll be performing at the Hope for Homeless Youth in Echo Park. We’ve been doing this show for a couple of years now and it’s always fun.

Saturdays are for Sillies!
Our Family Friendly show with improv group Jump Start keeps growing and growing! It’s also at The Spot Cafe and Lounge in Culver City. Showtime: 8 PM. Tickets: $7.

So there you have it. There will bound to be extra one-off shows here and there, too. For more, check out the Magic Meathands Facebook page.

This Thursday with the Meathands – for the last time!

This week is my FINAL Thursday Night Comedy Cafe with the Magic Meathands. The Meathands are retiring the long-running show at the end of June, so see it before it’s gone forever!

For those that have never been, it’s live improvised comedy made up completely on the fly using audience suggestions. It’s tons of fun!

Details: June 17, 8 PM, The Spot Cafe, 4455 Overland Ave., Culver City, CA 90230. Tickets: $5.00.

See me on PBS throughout the month of June

Yes, that’s right, I’ll be on your TV! I make a special cameo appearance during the TV special Carole King/James Taylor Live at the Troubadour!*

Check your local PBS station for air dates. It airs here in Los Angeles on KCET tonight June 5 at 10:30 PM and tomorrow night June 6 at 11:00 PM. It airs in Boston on WGBH tonight June 5 at 9:00 PM.

*OK, you can see me in the audience for 5 whole seconds during the second song, “So Far Away”. So, cameo might be overstating it. Also seen in the crowd: my wife Nahleen right in front of me, and behind us the very funny Greg Benson of Mediocre Films.

Someone uploaded it to YouTube, probably through ethically and legally dubious means of which I heartily disapprove. You can see us starting at 43 seconds in.

Update: Three still pictures from the video have been posted.
