Alright peeps. It’s like really really ridiculously close to being tomorrow. Which means it’s LBCC time. I didn’t get to go last year with the rest of the Guildies because I was in a little place called AUSTRALIA. No big deal, it’s just a friggin CONTINENT with REVERSE TOILET FLOW. Anyway, this year, I’m coming down to BEACH, full force.
My Effinfunny booth #214 will be hosting a variety of signings from all my shows: The Guild, Legend of Neil & Save the Supers, together at last. What’s this below? A schedule?! HOW CONVENIENT-
10am - 12pm The Guild Signing with Robin Thorsen, me
12pm - 2pm The Legend of Neil Signing with Tony Janning, me
2pm - 3:30pm The Guild Signing with Jeff Lewis, Robin Thorsen, me
3:30p - 4:30p Save the Supers Signing with the ENTIRE main cast.
3pm - 4pm Buffy’s Tom Lenk Signing with… duh, Tom Lenk.
4:30pm - 6pm The Guild Signing with Jeff & Robin
At 5pm we have the SAVE THE SUPERS PANEL on HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL WEB SERIES. Wow, that sounds informative! We have the entire main cast, as well as producers Jeff Winkler, Josie Kavadoy and kick ass production designer Greg Aronowitz talking about how we managed to create a show for My Damn Channel with a meager budget and still manage to get Seth Green to guest star. P.S. If you haven’t seen the show, WHY DO YOU INSIST ON DEPRIVING YOURSELF OF JOY?
Lastly but not leastly, we’re putting on the OFFICIAL AFTER SHOW, a comedy nerdstravaganza, we’re calling the Effinfunny Fest. We have an amazing lineup of improv, musical, and stand up comedians “topped” off (you’ll get that pun in a moment) with a 30 minute musical performance of my favorite homoerotic film… TOP GUN! I don’t want to give too much away but Tom Lenk plays Kelly McGillis and it’s just so good. Better than a bacon-wrapped blow job good.
All the info on how to get tickets is HERE, use the promo code “guildfan” and watch as you save $10 off the ticket price! It’s a rather insane deal for 2 hours of solid side splitting, gut busting, intestine eviscerating comedy. Also, I can almost guarantee I will lick Jeff Lewis’s face at some point on stage.
Hope to see you tomorrow! You know where to find me, ya weirdo.
PLEASE READ, THERE IS BULLSHIT TO DEAL WITH. -
Click here to read a “nomination” letter I received informing me my podcast has been “selected” to “win” an LA Comedy “Award.” Basically, it’s a “bringer” show with an Internet twist. There’s an article on Splitsider today which explains it perfectly:
If you’re an avid internet comedy fan you may have come across the website for the LA Comedy Awards, an awards show that hands out prizes to stand-ups, podcasts, films, and internet videos, but the whole awards show charges people to participate, allowing entrants to basically buy themselves into an awards show that isn’t a real thing in the first place. Entrants are charged anywhere between $0.99 and $19 to submit their material, and people are even charged to vote, which is completely absurd. It’s all a despicable, low-rent scheme aimed at naive young comedians, taking advantage of their hopes and dreams by promising a big flashy awards show, red carpet interviews, and the chance to add a (phony) award to their resumes if they donate enough money. The LA Comedy Awards website features logos for respected comedy entities like Funny or Die and The Onion as if they sponsor the show when they clearly have nothing to do with it. So, if you’re a young comedy person thinking of entering your stand-up set/podcast/video into this contest think again because it’s the awards show equivalent of a “bringer show” for stand-ups, and an LA Comedy Award is just something some guy made up to take money from gullible comedy novices.
I contacted the guy behind this horseshit and asked him to remove me from his voting scheme. He refused to comply. GREAT, now I get to have fun on the Internet railing against a bullshit subhuman!
He’s nominated my show and many others for “free” in an attempt to build credibility to his completely invented fucktarded awards show. I am sure he will take a generous “Producer” fee to pay rent on his undoubtedly gross apartment in Redondo Beach.
There is no way in the world anyone would be dumb enough to pay 99¢ to vote for this garbage, but the very idea of my name being associated with it is toilet trash on a level I can’t even comprehend. So if this guy wouldn’t privately respect that I wanted no part of this, fine. He’s thanked me for the “free publicity.” I say, let him have it. Congratulations, fuckbag! Now everyone knows you’re a parasite!
