Introducing Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy!

I like three things in life:

1. Comic books
2. Writing
3. Rock n' roll

Now I have comedy shows on all three.

The first was Comic Book Comics, which was a huge success but we never did another one. Mainly because Mike Drucker and I started the second, Writer's Room right after and that's still running (the next one's this Sunday but I'm out of town. Go see it anyway).

Writer's Room is a monthly show and sometimes it's one of the few spots I get. Mike's running another show with John Knefel at Creek and the Cave and I've been wanting to do something a little less dry and a lot louder. So Alex Grubard and I are starting a new show in Williamsburg:

Here's the deal. Six comics who love music perform in front of a live 'house band'. The band closes the night with a full set of their original music in a Williamsburg club/lounge setting. There's nothing wrong with any of this.

We're still finalizing the details but we do know this:

Sunday, July 20 10PM
98 Meserole Ave. (corner of Manhattan Ave.)
Brooklyn, NY.

Great greatest hits record to build your show around. Always loved the look of the album and the boob-inspired name (thought I never really understood what "beaty" meant.)

I'm in NC too this weekend. In Raleigh. Go figure.

Meaty Beaty is the first Who album I ever got and still my favorite - with all the Who anthologies out there I can't understand why it's out of print.
