I live in New York. I am a comedian, writer and actor. My day job is blogging for VH1.com. I write about the silly things celebrities and pop stars do, so you know...God's work.
You may have seen my writing on many other reputable websites (McSweeney's, The Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, xojane.com, The Hairpin, Splitsider, The FW, etc.). I also write crazy blogs about Game of Thrones, Magneto and Jeff Goldblum.
Life's weird, right?
(A paraphrased facebook message conversation)
My high school friend: Hey! I’m going to be in New York this Wednesday and Thursday for work. If you’re not too busy, maybe we can meet up!
Me: I have improv class on Thursday, but on Wednesday I just have to do a mic at this really fun gay piano bar in the Village. You should come! It’s super fun! An open mic at a gay piano bar! The Village! Fun!
My friend: ….
My friend: How about you just text me after your open mic and maybe we can get drinks/coffee somewhere.
I don’t know why my high school friends would be surprised that I think hanging out at gay piano bars is like…the best thing ever. I listened to a lot of Rent back then. Then again, maybe it’s not the gay piano bar thing, but the open mic thing. However, this is the girl who agreed to be my Paul Schaffer if I ever got a Dave Letterman-type gig. We were 18. She knew I wanted to work in comedy. Meh.
