From Christian Finnegan, comes this note:

Beloved e-Friends,


Tickets are now available for the live taping of my very first comedy special, "AU CONTRAIRE!". The two big friggin' shows will take place on October 25th at the Trocadero Theater in glorious Philadelphia, PA.

It will be a glorious night of awkward personal revelations and hypocritical assaults on your character!

I'm going to lay it bare, folks--this will be the most important night of my comedy life and I want as many friendly faces there as possible.
Don't make me bus in a bunch of homeless people!

Some good news: These tapings will be completely free of charge. You hear that, cheapskates? FREE!!! Some more good news: If you attend a taping, there's a very good chance your mug will appear on the tee-vee when Comedy Central airs "Au Contraire!" in early '09. Think you can wait around to reserve your tickets? Au contraire!** Tickets are going to be extremely limited.

To reserve tickets, complete this online form.
Make sure to fill in the "Promo Code" section with the word "Finny". This will get you priority seating--it's my way of rewarding you, my true inter-pals.
And this way you can avoid rubbing shoulders with the filthy, teeming masses!

You. Me. A bunch of cameras.
What could be more enticing?

I'll see you October 25th, friendlies.

Christian Finnegan,
Ready for his close-up

**See what I did there? I artfully worked the title of the special into the body of the email. Pretty slick, huh? That's what makes me part of the Comedy Elite.

New York, as the song says, is a helluva town. The sights! The sounds! The occasional confrontation with a group of angry teens on a late night subway platform--this city has it all!

And this weekend, New York City gets even helluva-er, as I'll be headlining lovely Gotham Comedy Club in Chelsea, Thursday 9/18 through Sunday 9/21. What does this mean for you? It means you need to get your toned butt (am I crazy, or have you been working out?) into a seat.

If you've been interested in coming out to see my version of American-style stand-up comedy, this is the weekend to do it. I'll be doing a dry run of the material on my soon-to-be-filmed comedy DVD laughter-ganza. Also, I'll be giving out free hugs after the show.*

So please, get yourself to W. 22nd street this weekend for an evening of awkward personal revelations and hypocritical assaults on your character. You'll giggle, you'll titter, you'll laugh yourself to the point of injury.

For show times and details, go here.

You. Me. New York Cit-ay. Let's get stupid together, people.

Christian Finnegan,
Mr. Funny Guy

SAVE THE DATE: Live DVD taping in Philly 10/25!

Friends, Supporters and Those who Signed Up for My Mailing List in a Drunken Haze,

Big damn news: On October 25th, 2008 I will be filming my very first one hour stand-up special, to be aired on Comedy Central. This major league Laughter-ganza will take place at the historic Trocadero Theater is downtown Philadelphia, PA. If you live in the Philly area or can get down there on Saturday, October 25th, I want your butt in a seat! Allow my cameras to steal your soul and become a part of history, as I document my semi-fraudulent brand of stand-up comedy for posterity!

The exact details are still be fine-tuned, so this is just a glorified 'save the date' email. So, um...SAVE THE FRIGGIN' DATE! But here are a few things I can tell you:

* We will be taping two shows on the same night, probably something like 7:30pm and 10pm.

* Tickets are going to be wicked cheap (as in 'negligible')

* No matter how recently you've seen me perform, there will be
material you've never heard before

* For information on the venue itself, go to www.thetroc.com We're going to make it bee-yootiful!

Once we finish fine tuning our ticketing system, I'll let you know how you can reserve your spot. Space is going to be pretty damned limited, so start planning ahead. And please, even if you don't think you can make the taping, I'd be honored if you could pass the word along anyone in the Philly area you think might give a poop. As always, people can get on the mailing list by visiting www.christianfinnegan.com.

Thanks, friendlies. You'll be hearing from me.
