The Next Thing.

I recently finished a first draft on yet another comedy feature… it is a ‘spec’ of course – relax everybody. So now, while that 1st draft is cooling off and resting, there always has to be a “next thing” to start working on immediately… to preserve the momentum, the habit, the ritual of work (sorry, went a little bit Thomas Wolfe there for a second, an instant, a brief packet of time.) So, I am finally starting to work on the new version of my Punk Rock stories show. The last time I did the full, 50ish minute, show, I only had that much material – a lot less than an hour that I then stretched mercilessly. Now, as I revisit that older stuff, I’ve also got an additional hour (at least) of more punk rock stories. So now the challenge will be re-writing and cutting, cutting, cutting, to turn 2+ hours of material into a 48 minute show that is still funny, makes sense and that, hopefully, has some kind of point to it. So here is a “live” clip of one of my stories – told at the Comedy Central stage. You can find more on my funnyordie page too.
