So last night I hosted an Oscar party at Comix in NYC. It was a swell time and fun was had by all. The party got some advance press, including a blurb in the NY Post in their big 'What to do on Oscar night' article. The article's writer seems to be under the impression that I "wrote some of Jon Stewart's material for the Oscar presentation", which is miles and miles from being accurate. The truth is I, along with what I suspect to be dozens of other comedy types, were invited to submit some material. I'm certain this was done as a mere insurance policy for Jon Stewart's actual Oscar writing staff, given the short window of time following the end of the writer's strike. So I churned out a bunch of silly jokes, none of which were used in the broadcast. This was neither a shock nor a disappointment--I was always perfectly aware that I was part of a joke-writing safety net and nothing more.

I know it seems weird to bringing this up. But I just wanted to put something out there, in case anyone who wrote any of the very fine jokes that actually made it onto the broadcast came across that NY Post blurb and thought, "Who is this dickbag and why is he taking credit for our work?" Perhaps a Google search will bring offended parties to this humple mea culpa.

You may now go back about your lives.

P.S. I do wish they'd used my Javier-Bardem-has-a-massive-head joke, though. (sigh)

Denizens of South Florida,

This weekend, from Thursday 2/7 through Sunday 2/10, I will be bringing my wacky hijinks to the Ft. Lauderdale Improv at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in lovely Hollywood, FL. What does this mean for you? Why, it's the opportunity to indulge your crippling gambling addiction under the guise of supporting the 'arts'. Also, two of the three following four factoids about this weekend are true:

* This is my first visit to FTL in over a year.
* I will be performing a buttload of new material. So even if you've seen me before, there will be tons of stuff for you to laugh uproariously and/or scratch your head at.
* At the end of each performance I will sacrifice an audience member to the demon god Cthulhu.

Reservation info and showtimes can be found here. See you there, friendlies!

Yours 'til you don't want me no mo,
