Negotiating with UpWorthyists

Taped this important piece - comedy, but important - about Iranian nuclear talks. Sounds hilarious, doesn’t it. I played the worn-down, disheveled straight man. As you can see… Nailed it! (In part because we taped 48 hours after I had heart surgery).
Upworthy and all them goody-too-shoes type places are featuring it, so do yourself a favor and watch now, so you, too, can learn to Get To No!

5 years

Today is the 5 year anniversary of HarperCollins publishing my first book, “Get Rich Cheating.” I’ve got mixed emotions, mostly because I can’t believe it’s been 5 years (and then some, if you include the long inspiration, research & writing process).

The book has done amazing things for me: A regular spot on a TV news show, an appearance on a bestsellers list, and great reviews from people like Rachel Maddow, Terry Jones & Penthouse… a live show that sold out theaters, became a TED talk, took me around the country and the world & got more kind words from the likes of The New York Times… pitches for TV shows, books & other projects that have been requested, rejected and rejoiced… plus all the immeasurable benefits that have surely helped make possible the other pretty cool things I’ve done in the last 5 years.

But, of course, I can’t help but sometimes wish it could have done more. It deserved to do more. Maybe if the news every single day didn’t so easily flow through the “Get Rich Cheating” filter, I could more quickly let it go. But I’ve got to let it go, and embrace the other inspirations and creations I’ve completed, begun, or am stumbling towards now.

Five years ago today, my book was born.
Exactly half that time ago - two and a half years today - this guy was born.

So I think I’m doing okay. Thanks for your support.

HuffpoComedyLiveFordAddiction

I’ve been on HuffpostLive a bunch lately, but I haven’t been posting on this blog much lately, so let’s rectify. Here’s today’s talk about comedy, politics, & addiction. More tk…

Legends Found Lacking

So they published this book called “Legendary Locals of Hoboken.” Frank Sinatra’s hometown, you know? Nice book, legendary people. Until you get to Page 102 and realize they must’ve had a word count requirement because they scrape the bottom of the barrel pretty hard.

On the plus side, it’s a better bio than I’ve ever been able to write myself.

(I’m even on the back cover. Don’t blame me).

Aspen Comedy

Here’s a little video hit from my visit to the Aspen Laff Festival. It was fun and it was free of all that pesky oxygen. I like to call my look in this video “sickly chic.”

A-Plus For Effort

Finally, more good marks for me to squander. This time from the National Educators Association PR Council for a gig. The fools!

“Thank you for the laughs & all the great lines! Your humor was ‘perfect pitch’ for our group and helped make our Awards Banquet a delightful evening. A+ ;)

A Dream Fulfilled

I don’t think I’ll rock anyone’s world by saying that this 5′8″-ish swarthy male comedian is M.O.T., so you’ll understand that this video is the culmination of my life’s work.
Thanks to the Y&R ad agency, I play Santa, ruining X-mas for the children.

If it is, indeed, all down hill from here, it was the highest of heights.
Merry Happy, everyone. Merry Happy.

New Broadcast TV Reel

Hey!
After nearly three years (geesh!), I finally updated my TV reel. It’s mostly punditry type stuff - my pure silliness is elsewhere - but take a look and tell me what you think.
Also, really, I’m more on Twitter and Facebook than here, so, you know, come over.

Last Current TV Appearance

We had fun. We did man-on-the-street, we did a big speech at the 2012 DNC, we did jokes and bits and segments and there were tears and laughs and feelings and we moved the world forward just a teeny tiny bit.

My last on-air segment for Current TV. On Viewpoint a few weeks ago. My show, The War Room - with Jennifer Granholm and/or Michael Shure - bowed out last Thursday. ONWARD!!!!



July 19, 2013

Last “War Room” TV Appearance

One more month ’till this network bites the dust… Looks like I’m going down with the ship.

More me on TV!

I hope you’re not as sick of me as I am. If so, let’s share therapist bills!

On The War Room* on Current TV, July 2, 2013, talking Edward Snowden, Bolivia, National Intel Chief’s Apology, and the TSA Instagrams.

* How did I ever get that booking?

Much more video to come. Been slacking in posting. Check TheFinalEdition and My YT.
