Iron Comic in LA Friday, Kasper Hauser in SF Tonight!


"Iron Comic," a show in which comedians are must deliver material only on a specific subject (a "secret ingredient"), has been burning up San Francisco for quite some time. Word filtered to me that it was coming to LA (and bringing Brent Weinbach and Maria Bamford with it), and I hopped on board. The Sound of Young America is proud to be a sponsor of the show, which is Friday night (3/9) at the M Bar in LA.

The show was so hot in San Francisco, it merited a profile in the Chronicle. Anything that gets Brent Weinbach holding a meat tenderizer into the MSM is something I support enthusiastically.

And hey -- don't forget San Franciscans... Kasper Hauser are reading at Modern Times on Valencia Street tonight at 7PM. Go, buy a Skymaul, and hear from SkyMaul CEO Jerry Pondo.

Brule's Rules


I think I am in love with Dr. Steve Brule, and with Tim & Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job!

Kasper Hauser: Free in SF Tuesday!


The world-famous comedians of the Kasper Hauser Comedy Group will be presenting their book, "SkyMaul: Happy Crap You Can Buy From a Plane" Tuesday at Modern Times Books in San Francisco. This is a really great bookstore down the street from where I grew up that I can't recomend highly enough.

The event is 100% free, and things kick of at 7PM.

"The group will talk about sketch comedy and parody writing, and their attempt to break the Guinness Book world record for throwing a checker the length of the Queen Mary. "

Even if you're not in San Francisco, you should tell your friends who are. And even if you don't know anyone there, you should buy this book, which is one of the funniest I have ever read.

Don't miss this interview with Anne Beatts, original SNL writer, on The Treatment.

Among other things, she talks about a time when Eric Idle had cats go to the bathroom INSIDE HIS PANTS live on air, then had to go directly to another sketch without cleaning up.

She also talks about 30 Rock v. Sudio 60, and reveals that 30 Rock was originally planned as a behind-the-scenes series about a Crossfire-type news opinion show. Also, lots and lots of other amazing stuff.
