Chatty Catties

A few years ago, someone asked me for a few thousand dollars to make a movie about his cat. Dear reader, I married that man. And today that movie, Chatty Catties, is available! The movie follows a woman, her cat, and the man that comes between them. It is set in a world where cats can talk to their owners. All of the cats are voiced by deaf or hard-of-hearing actors. You can hear the Seattle Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center talk about that choice here. [more inside]

Standup/Storytelling 12" Vinyl distributed by Dischord Records

That campaign was fully funded, and the records are now in production. And as of today, venerated DC punk rock label Dischord Records (Fugazi, Minor Threat) will be distributing the 12" vinyl version of my album! You can preorder a copy here. [more inside]

'And I Am Not Lying' - My first album of standup and storytelling

I'm a standup comic and storyteller in NYC, been a member of the blue for a long time. My stuff has been on 'This American Life' and The Moth's podcast - and my very first album of standup and storytelling just came out today! It's available on iTunes/Amazon/Google Play, and I'm also running an IndieGoGo to raise funds to press it on hot pink vinyl. You can also hear a sample track about my band with piano-playing chickens, and see video of another story featured on the album. [more inside]

Find out what's #TRENTing from a brash cartoon character

Short comedy video series: Trent is a sort of Max Headroom for the social media era — but only sort of. He lives inside the matrix, telling you what's #TRENTing, in a brash style — mixing a Scandinavian accent with a Brooklyn attitude. In this episode, Trent weighs in on the Ghost in the Shell controversy, the Vice President's rule about dining alone with women, and your search history being up for sale. WARNING: "Mature" language.

Nebula One, a cartoon set in space

I've created a fun and hopefully good-looking new animated series set in space. There are three short episodes, and they're all in one video. Later episodes — assuming I'll have the time and inclination to keep going — will reveal that the mission for these astronauts is establishing a sports franchise in space, for television. But for now, dodging space rocks and worrying about avatars takes up most of their time. Enjoy! [more inside]

The Cut: A Play by Patrick Cleary

A play I wrote was picked as the third place winner in Rover Dramawerks' First Annual 10 Minute Comedies Festival. They were kind enough to send me a copy of the video they recorded of the show. It's a play about office manners, fate, and snipped neckties.

Big Bad Bosses - Power Overwhelming

Watch out! Listen! BAD GUYS FROM VIDEO GAMES somehow joined up to form a 90s boy band. I just wrote, composed, arranged, and produced their entire debut album. In Big Bad Bosses - Power Overwhelming, caricatures of Bowser, Ganondorf, Sephiroth, and Dr. Eggman sing honest, soulful songs about how even their terrifying fury can't protect them from the big questions in life. It's been #1 on the iTunes comedy charts for a week, and I couldn't wait to post it to MeFi Projects! [more inside]

Live standup/storytelling: 'New Yorkers Scream At Each Other When They're Being Nice.'

Raging Titter Radio

This is probably as honest as I’ll ever be about what I’m trying to accomplish with my podcast, Raging Titter Radio. I have always had a lot of thoughts and I’m often overwhelmed by them. Since I was a kid, I imagined my thoughts as balloons, too many comic books I suppose. Anyway, I try to chase them down and grab them before they float away forever. The easiest way to hang onto them is to tie the strings together. If I can tie enough balloons together, I can float away. That’s Raging Titter Radio. Oh and there’s always a top notch indie band playing a great song that's thematically relevant. [more inside]

BrainTripping: Markov-chain your own path through the words of famous people.

Step inside the "brain" of Jesus, the Pope, Kurt Cobain, or Tupac to come up with your own sentences and stories. Words are suggested based on the language patterns of the brain (and you are limited to their vocabulary). There's a learning curve, but once you get past it, hilarious times can be had. Read my introduction post or check out the tutorial to get started. [more inside]

WTF with Marc Maron: the Public Radio Show

WTF is a popular podcast hosted by comedian Marc Maron. He interviews comics (and once in a while non-comics) about their lives and how their minds work, and generates really amazing insights. Since I'm a public radio producer, I talked Marc into making a limited-run public radio series out of some of the best episodes of the show. My colleague Nick White helped. You can listen to (and review) the episodes at PRX.org.
