In our latest improv short, my wife, Adria Dawn and I explore what happens when a pregnant woman gets trapped with a self-proclaimed pregnancy expert. This is a slightly twisted take on how soon-to-be parents really feel sometimes. We hope you enjoy it.

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.

Each webisode's survey question reveals a little more about each character and his/her own relationship woes. From preferred underwear on a partner, to theories of The One, this series is a light-hearted take on messy relationship and the healing salve of friends and beer.
It's Super Bowl Sunday! What better day to make fun of advertising?

Also, everyone has inanimate objects instead of heads for some reason. [more inside]
My friends and I, unimpressed with the state of internet comedy, started our very own sketch comedy group. After 4 months spent writing, acting, producing, and editing, our first 12 videos are finally hitting the internet, one week at a time.
My buddy Doctor Pinkerton, mad scientist supreme, just released his latest album. It's fourteen tracks of genre-leaping silliness, with a comic-book style cover by yours truly. And if you can make it to the release party in New Orleans this Saturday, you can get a free comic book based on the album, too!
We just finished episode three of Put This On, a web series for men who want to dress like grown-ups. This one's about work, and we interviewed Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming "Bridesmaids," with Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd and Jon Hamm, and the co-creator of Freaks and Geeks.
