Off to San Francisco

So it's a go.  I'm off to San Francisco in the a.m.  Five venues in five nights.  Purple Onion first stop.  It's where Phyllis Diller got her start, and I'm excited to work there.  When I told Pete McDermott how involved it was to go to…

Off to the beach

Pete and Maxie and I are loading up the car and heading to Bradley Beeeech (sung in the Beverly Hillbillies tune).  Have a gig tomorrow night at the Marlboro Tennis and Swim Club -- something like that.  Hey, I grew up in Lake Hiawatha, NJ,…

Pabst Blue Ribbon only2-bucks

Yesterday I wrote about my experience at a NY comedy club that I think epitomizes an attitude common in many clubs.   After 12 years in the biz, it can still be jarring, especially on the heels of a great experience in Rhode Island and a broadcasting…

Just trying to find my way

This afternoon I was on the Fox News The Strategy Room  w/ Alan Colmes.   No, I'm not right-wing.  Don't like labels.  But I do enjoy a fun, healthy debate and that's what we had today.  He is smart and quick-witted and much more personable…

This checkers champ is no scummer.

So my youngest sister just tells me that our father, Hughie Langan from 138th Street and Alexander Avenue in the South Bronx, was the 5 borough Checkers Champion of NYC when he was 14 years old, and he received an award from the Bronx Borough…

Still buzzing

I'm still buzzing from last night.  What an experience playing Trish Webber (It Only Hurts When I Laugh) and working with such wonderful people in Providence, Rhode Island.    I feel exhausted, drained, fulfilled, excited, challenged, rewarded. …

Trish Webber, I am

So today, tonight we shoot the film short  It Only Hurts When I Laugh.   I play comic Trish Webber who has an angry meltdown on stage.  My scenes are being filmed at The Comedy Connection in Rhode Island.   I'm glad I got to perform…

My First Commentor

 I have to say I was absolutely thrilled to get off the train after a  three-hour trek from NYC to Providence, Rhode Island, get to my hotel, check my emails -- and find my very first comment to my blog.   Beside myself silly I am.    …

Off to Rhode Island

I'm heading to Providence where I'll perform tonight at the Comedy Connection.   However, the main reason I am going is to act in a SAG film short that will be shown at film festivals.  We shoot tomorrow at the club.  I play Trish Webber…

Thinking outside the Box

Got an invite from Jon Fox to perform in the San Fran Comedy Competition.  I'm not a fan of competitions and incurring expenses to get to competitions.  But I am open to meeting new people and performing in new places -- so if I can make it…

Fun at the Frairs Club

Last night I hosted a comedy show at the Friars Club.   The comics had all vied to be the winner of the "So You Think You Can Roast" contest held at the club last year-- the winner Goumba Johnny went on to roast Matt Lauer at last year's big…

Fuck Fruit

I feel like John Adams in 1776.  Is anybody there?  Does anybody care?   Today I worked on my DVD cover, went on a commercial audition for Avis (commercial auditions are a total waste of time -- I go on them in the hopes that one day I'll…
