28 Years Later is wrapped

We've wrapped production on my comedy special, 28 YEARS LATER. Wanted to take a minute to thank everyone involved in the production, especially those of whom did excellent work for little to no money, because if you are a person who has money, they are well worth it: Joe Filipas for directing. Joe has been a friend for years and one of the few creative voices I trust to line up with my own. He is also in the dictionary next to "Midwestern Nice" and his careful planning (read: constant harassment) was what kept this train on the tracks. He's out of Minnesota, but his company Sugo Media does...

Some of my favorite comics in town are dropping by, PBR is giving us booze, there will be food, and then cameras will record your laughing at my failure so I can share it with the world.

Devil’s Couriers Shoot

I filmed a featured role in a webseries put together by some friends. It's called THE DEVIL'S COURIERS and it is super great. Tim Aslin (Actor, Writer) and Kovar McClure (Director, Actor) were both in our film YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE, and have struck out on their own with a webseries about elderly people in a retirement home who take on a biker gang, and team up to attack hipsters. (Right? Yes.) If you want to follow DEVIL'S COURIERS as it progresses, please check out their FACEBOOK PAGE or TWITTER ACCOUNT, and pass along some love to TIM ASLIN who sporadically moved to New York City for the next...
