Subject: Laugh or I will Crush You + Shows in LA/Den/SF/NY/Europe/Etc.


This is an older picture, but my friend Kenny Krauss came up with a new name to use with it for the NY Comedy Festival – “Laugh or I will Crush You.” Other ideas were “My, What a Small World You Have!” or “I’m Too Sexy for this World.” Anyone got other good ones to go with this pic?

I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer. This month’s newsletter is a bit late, but that’s because I’ve been getting some rest. So far, it’s been abnormally cool in LA. Finally, global warming is paying off! I had a few cool news pieces run this past month and I’ve got a bunch of shows coming up. Here are links to all of them.
