18 short plays about Python and programming

At the PyGotham 2018 tech conference, Jason Owen and I presented "Python Grab Bag: A Set of Short Plays", inspired by the Neo-Futurists' show "The Infinite Wrench". The 40-minute video is up on YouTube and my blog post links to the script and slides, credits the crew and cast, deep-links to the specific timecodes for individual plays, and gives citations for the references we made.

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.

This Is A Boring Shark Attack: 8 Rules for Fascinating Storytelling

I've been doing standup and storytelling in NYC for ten years this month. Now I'm convinced that the big money comes from telling stories that are built out of jokes, but I'm still waiting for the data to come in.

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. 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]

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]

Shooting Kangaroos at the Kennedy Center

I'm a standup/storyteller in NYC, and I worked for a while as a kangaroo shooter's assistant in the Australian Outback. I told a version of this story on The Moth's podcast years ago, but have subsequently refined and upgraded it. I told this version of the story at the Kennedy Center on Halloween, 2015 - it was a costumed show, I did not come onstage shortly after murdering anyone. Hope you enjoy it.

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.
