Improv, Vegas, and Possible Violence

This WEDNESDAY, JULY 14th – I’ll be back in Las Vegas to perform yet again in the weekly Executive Monkeys improv comedy show at the Palms hotel & casino.   The guest this week is MMA (mixed martial arts) champ Randy “The Natural” Couture (UFC, The Expendables)!

Granted, two weeks ago the show had Shannon Elizabeth.  But they didn’t have me come out for that one.  It’s probably for the best.   Why risk ending up in a make-out scene with her when I can risk getting punched in the face by a guy who TKOs professional atheletes?

SUNDAY 13th @ 4pm – iO West – LA Improv Fest
a Writing For Comic Books workshop
2 hour crash course on writing for the comic book industry, based on my experience writing for Marvel Comics. $26.50 – 1/2 the proceeds go to LA Food Bank. — This is a much less expensive version of this workshop.  If you’re interested, it won’t get cheaper than this + it’s for a good cause.

To Whom(s) it May Concern,

LAST WEEKEND:      Thank you to any and all people in Las Vegas for a wonderful weekend and an incredible reception for our show at the Palms casino!    Specific thanks, actually to Emily Jillette and Matt Donelly for promoting improv in the desert, and for continuing to include me in its development.  And for the many people who have asked – Adam Savage (TV’s Mythbusters) is a great, chill, funny guy.   In addition to being a great interview guest, his (second time performing) stand-up was wonderfully engaging and funny.
