It was getting late, and neither myself nor my father felt like going to Redwood City in pursuit of an old coat. So I'm cutting the tags off my purchases and I'm ready to look like a million bucks at MacDowell... Specifically... like 292 bucks.

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I come with great news! I intend on being a homeowner by next year!
I know what you are thinking...
" How the f$#* are you going to get a house if your parents aren't going to buy one for you? And by the way, if you haven't checked, you make a living as a performance artist!&qu...Read more
If you know who this is, you are probably spinning in your seat like I was all of Saturday when I got to interview him for Kong Magazine's premiere issue.It's Greg Sestero, the hunk sauce actor who stars in the Cult Phenomenon "The Room." A movie that was written, directed, produce...Read more
Hey everyone! This week I'm the featured reader on angry asian man.
I did it. Four DIFFERENT shows in one week. Two cities. And unlike Jesse Spano... NO NERVOUS BREAKDOWN!
I just got back from San Francisco. I presented my Carless Comedy show Sunday. Saturday was the LA Storyteller Festival where I did two different pieces. Then Tuesday and Friday, I did the "Whoring for Hollywood&qu...Read more
