Cooking Is Coping: One Funny Recipe a Week

I'm a standup comic in NYC and I cook to cope with the stress of a midlife career change to something with no path to stability. Let me just tell you, I cook a LOT. I'm writing these recipes down and sending them to my mailing list once a week. You can see the first recipe here, with more to come every week for at least the next three months.

Standup/story video about nightmare NYC apt. hunt

I'm a standup and storyteller in NYC, and you may have heard my stuff on 'The Moth' podcast or 'This American Life.' I just got some good video of a new story that I'm really proud of and I'm showing it off here.

It's about a NIGHTMARE apartment hunt in NYC and a chance encounter with Ryan Gosling.

Standup/Storytelling 12" Vinyl distributed by Dischord Records

My first album of standup and storytelling came out digitally in June of this year (previously) and I started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to press a limited edition of the record onto hot pink vinyl. That campaign was fully funded, and the records are now in production.

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]

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

I told this story at The Moth's 'Grand SLAM' in Brooklyn a while back about the time that I was just trying to take the subway home and eat an entire container of Ben and Jerry's ice cream when my groceries spilled all over the train and I got in a screaming match with a really nice lady.
