Recording A New Comedy Special In San Francisco

Thrilled to announce that I will be taping a new hour of standup material in San Francisco on Friday, September 20th at 9pm. The recording will take place at Cynic Cave, which is in the basement of Lost Weekend Video, one of the last great indie-video-rental stores. Fitting with the theme of the venue, we will be shooting only on VHS and Beta tapes, most of which are taken from the store itself. The project is directed by San Francisco's experimental video artist Patrick Wilkinson, who has been one of my closest friends since we once failed to adapt a Lovecraftian short-film back in Chicago....

28 Years Later Is Free All Week To Help Eddie Creer

Sometimes your heroes won't like you. Eddie Creer was my choir teacher in high school. He taught me more than anyone in my hometown about performing in front of people, about controlling my voice, and how to have a problem with authority. While Mr. Creer was the only teacher I had all four years of school, he sent me to the principal's office at least once every two weeks, because we didn't get along. Or more accurately, because I didn't think the rules applied to me, and Mr. Creer took every opportunity to remind me that they very much did. Our contentious relationship frustrated me to no end....

Release of 28 Years Later & FILMPOCALYPSE!

One hell of a month. Time to catch up. My comedy special Brock Wilbur: 28 Years Later was released and is available for download through the site, as well as iTunes, Amazon, and Google Music. I got a few requests for the music we used, so here's a free link to download the songs I recorded, including my attempt at jamming all of the Goblin stuff into one track: Soundtrack Folder Download. Followed my release with a bit of support touring, including the Best Fish Taco One Year Blowout and a trip up to San Fran with Sofiya Alexandra and Matt Monroe. Got to open for W. Kamau Bell and here's a photo...

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...

Why I’m Filming A Comedy Special

Hey Internet, I'm filming a comedy special on September 18th, at Club Fais Do-Do here in Los Angeles. The show is at 8pm and it is completely free. 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. I've been in standup for just over a year, so why record a special now? First, it's my 28th birthday; hence the title 28 YEARS LATER. A friend of mine once said that if you move to LA and haven't made it by 28, you never will. This doesn't apply to me, because...

LA: Brock Wilbur Wants To Give You A Library

Facebook RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/210098585783985/ I'm taping a comedy special (28 Years Later) on September 18 at Club Fais Do-Do in Los Angeles. I set aside some money for marketing, but I don't want to clutter your Facebook sidebar or print out a bunch of flyers people would just throw away CUZ THE ENVIRONMENT. I decided to do something permanent and worthwhile with the money, and I bought a small library. It's made from the wood of an old barn by an Amish farmer named Henry Miller (I could not make this up.) Now it needs a home. Spread the word about the show and you spread...

Comedy Show Pitches + 28 Years Later Prep

Hey Internet. How's it going? I've been preparing for my comedy special taping on September 18th. I went to the Zombie Apocalypse themed cabin below, in the middle of the desert, to finish transcribing hours and hours of recordings... mostly me talking to myself in the car while stuck in traffic. Ever want to be convinced you are a danger to yourself and others? Try blasting through 13 hours of your own internal monologues in one sitting. Do it in a lonely cabin in the middle of the desert. Drink a lot and keep an axe near by... cause who didn't love The Shining? I got into standup comedy to not have...
