Standup

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...

Batman Pitch, Your Friends Close Fundraiser, LCD Soundsystem Doc Review, New Site, Quantum Conundrum

Hope you're enjoying the new website. BrockWilbur.com has been long overdue for a revamp, and here it is. Get your fill. >> Here's a link to my review of the LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up And Play The Hits. You should see it. When the trailer for this made me sob, I knew I was in trouble. (Also, we've completely redesigned JuniorVarsity.org, so some links may start dying as part of the transition. ON THAT NOTE, you should check out the new JuniorVarsity.org and let us know what you think.) >> This Friday night, we're throwing a fundraiser show for our film Your Friends...
