MAN CHILD IN BLACK
LA friends! I’m coming to say comedy things to you on Weds, June 5th at the M Bar! Joining me will be comedy pals Mike Phirman, James Urbaniak, and Josh Cagan!
You can make a reservation by calling the M Bar at 323-856-0036. Calling! ON THE PHONE! I know! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to actually use the calling people function on your mobile device!
Full details and pretty pictures of faces in the link!
The weather in Minneapolis is being described as ThunderSnow.
This just makes me want to rock out to Metallica’s old holiday album. Remember all the great songs?
The Emergency Removal That Should Not Be
Scraper of Ragnarok
Master of Public Safety (instrumental)
Ride The Plow
Fade to White
Ten Inches of Misery
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
So awesome. I’m going to go listen to it right now.
NEWS! I’ve set up a new fan/mailing list! Please do add your zip code and/or country so I know where to go to say comedy things right to your faces!
There’s also a sub-group called “Joseph’s Enablers.” Sign-up for that if you’re willing to help me out with exciting missions like working merch booths, rating things on the internet, eating tacos, etc.
PLUS, when you sign-up for the list you’ll also get a free download of a track from my comedy album VERBING THE NOUN. It’s some important advice about purchasing condoms learned from difficult, embarrassing personal experience.
Enjoy and thanks!

Today can’t possibly be World Theater Day because yesterday wasn’t Obnoxious Vocal Warm-ups Day.
St. Patrick’s Day Weekend: It’s like going on a Carnival cruise without ever leaving land.
The Ides of March
A quote from my book COMEDY OF DOOM:
“Every March 15, I’m disturbed to see that people are losing the spirit of the Ides of March. It’s not just about stabbing. It’s about coming together to stab in groups.”
Happy Stab Your Friend Day, Everyone!
PODCASTS: Fire, Writers, Boats, and Geeks.
I’ve been podcasting my little podcaster off lately.
I wrote an episode of one of my favorite podcasts, Getting On with James Urbaniak. As a comedy writer, there’s nothing better than writing for a great actor with a strong voice and sense of humor.
The episode is called Death By Fire.
I got to record two podcasts on JoCoCruiseCrazy.
I was on a panel all about writing moderated by my friend writer/performer Bill Corbett. We recorded it for the great podcast Nerdist Writer’s Panel.
I also recorded an episode of my podcast OBSESSED with extra special awesome guests Wil Wheaton, Mike Phirman, and Molly Lewis.
Finally, I’m hosting a brand new podcast in Minneapolis called Drinking With Geeks. In this podcast, geeks drink and debate heated geek topics. The first episode is called Martinis & Monsters.
Please listen, rate, review, subscribe, and otherwise verb all of these. Or don’t. Your ears and soul are your own!
Wil Wheaton loves beer! Mike Phirman loves Pro-Tools audio software! Molly Lewis plays the Obsessed theme live! A very special episode of Obsessed recorded live on a boat in the middle of the Caribbean sea for Jonathan Coulton’s JoCoCruiseCrazy! Find out the answer to the following questions and more: What is Wesley Crusher’s favorite beer? Could Mike Phirman kill a man with kindness? Why did Molly Lewis smash a pizza box with a ukulele? Plus, Wil and Mike make sex noises to advertise Joseph’s comedy album VERBING THE NOUN. (Also, if you’re a knitter, listen in the background to hear the clicking noises of the live audience’s crafting!)
