NY Post Launches New Comedy Website! And I'm On It!

The NY Post recently launched their brand new comedy website "Internet Action Force" (or IAF for short). It's loaded with hilarious original content about current topics and pop culture, and I'm so excited to be a part of their "Americans React" series!

Watch as we the American people react to such ground breaking things as...books! Mirrors! Vegetables! You name it, we tackle it--with the hard-hitting, news-worthy, nail-biting, honest-to-god reactions of true first-timers! You can catch all of the Americans React videos right here! And be sure to spread the love. We "honestly" appreciate it!

Wunnerful Wunnerful at Joe's Pub!!!

It is with champagne bubbles and primary color polyester that I announce I am thrilled to be returning to Joe's Pub with the all-new show, "Wunnerful Wunnerful!" Join James Bewely (as his alter-ego, Dale Seever) and myself for a far-from-traditional tribute to the baton wielding maestro, Lawrence Welk!
