I have been working on a lot of new projects for 2016. I am proud to announce that I will be on a new podcast distributed by a great company. The name of the podcast is “The Loftus Party” Podcast. You can hear it on sideshow network. (www.sideshownetwork.tv)
Loftus is a hilarious comedian and host of the nationally syndicated tv series “The Flip Side with Michael Loftus.” This is an honor for me because the Sideshow Network is THE PLACE online to hear great podcasts from some of the best comedians on the planet Earth.
The show is about current events, politics, and pop culture and is a fun way to recap the weeks news. I hope you all dig it. Here is a link to episode 1:
I have a real love hate relationship with Los Angeles. It’s hard not to. It’s a bittersweet town. The kind of place where you can feel 100 feet tall one minute and an inch tall the next. You might sign a deal and get famous enough to buy a brand new Cadillac. But when you go to drive it the next day don’t be surprised if some homeless crackhead took a shit on it.
One night you might look up at the stars on the beaches of Malibu and have a genuine moment of enlightenment. The next night you might find yourself being stabbed by a guy with tattoos on his face. You just never know! But over all, it’s an incredible town where you really do never know what’s going to happen next.
Tonight was a good night. I was shooting a project at a club called The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. The name is fitting because it really is a magical place. Right off the beach. You can see the water from the club. Classy place too. Always a good lineup of comedians and has great food and drinks. I could not believe I was getting paid to be there. On top of that, the shoot went GREAT and my friend Michael Loftus KILLED IT on stage. We were taping an episode of his show “The Flip Side with Michael Loftus” and the crowd was on fire. So was Loftus. Some of the most well written material I’ve ever seen a comedian do onstage and I’m not just saying that because I helped write and produce it. I mean it, man. I met some cool new people along the way.
There are a lot of things not to be missed if you are visiting Los Angeles. The Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Sign, the freaks on Venice Beach, DisneyLand, Mercado Restaurant, the Chinese Theater, Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, Zuma Beach, I could go on and on. Well, go ahead and put the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa on that list.
I had a blast! Tonight was one of the good nights in Los Angeles.
Things have been crazy. I’ve been spending the last few months in Los Angeles working on the Michael Loftus television project called “The Flip Side.” The show is now on in over 200 markets across the United States including Dish network Family Entertainment as well as KDOC in Los Angeles. It’s all very exciting.
I also went on a stand up tour through Europe including stops in Bucharest Romania, Paris France, Amsterdam Netherlands, and Oslo Norway. It was an incredible experience, and I had an unbelievably good time. I shot some video that you can watch here:
I’ll be shooting two episodes of “The Flip Side with Michael Loftus” in Los Angeles and then I fly off to do more stand up gigs. Stay tuned!
