Ghost Adventures – STF Public Access 1.32

leave a comment »

Title: Ghost Adventures – STF Public Access 1.32

Description: Zeke and Tyler from the Stranger than Fiction Show use this week’s video to give you highlights from this week’s show, but also address reports of paranormal activity at a haunted LA theater. Will they encounter a spirit? Will their heroic camera operator Courtney pick up supernatural artifacts? Will they overplay a one note joke?

Something tells me the answer is fairly obvious. And bearded. And freed the slaves.

Live Show Update

This week I’ll be doing two shows with The Stranger than Fiction Show – Wednesday (that’s tomorrow) night we will rock the Comedy Store Main Room as part of the LA Connection Showcase.  The improv comedy rock band Phoenyx will be there playing 20-25 minutes of improv hair metal goodness. Tix are $10 at the door, $5 if you get on my list.  As always in Hollywood there is a 2 drink minimum. Friday night brings me back to my regular show with The Stranger than Fiction Show at the LA Connection. 9pm start time and a full 90 minute set. The band will be back together in full force with my main man Digger back on bass guitar. Also there might be a super secret show in the works for early September. Details as they emerge.

Mahalo and try to stay off the ice, brah.

Title: The Bridesmaid – STF Public Access 1.31

Description: The STF Public Access cameras were hanging outside the theater when a drunk bridesmaid wanders into the shot and takes over the video. London Bridge? Eiffel Tower? Leaning Tower of Pisa? Which one will she choose?

Something tells me she picks option #2.

Video Commentary

Sara’s parents must be so proud.  They send their daughter to go be an actress in the big city and she plays a “character” who gets drunk, shits on the sidewalk, and then gets double teamed by two dudes.  Sara’s is a delicate flower and I think we captured that in this video.

Hitler and Eva Can’t Sleep – STF Public Access 1.30

leave a comment »

Sometimes I don’t know how our cameras get positioned where they do. And sometimes I only know how to end sentences in prepositions. But I do know a good Hitler joke when I see one.

The STF Public Access camera’s made their way into Hitler and Eva’s bedroom only to catch them fighting a bout of insomnia.  Hitler tells Eva a bedtime story that consists of Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring, the nature of the NASCAR economy, and a tale of what happens when Starbucks runs out of coffee.

Did you know that Hitler sleeps with a German flag? I didn’t.

Live Show update

I’ll be at my resident gig with The Stranger than Fiction Show tonight at the LA Connection at 9pm.  Word has it that Dallas James is back from his break and has been stockpiling comedy from across this great land. Me, I’m trying to get it out of me before I go camping next weekend. Tickets are still available for tonight’s show and I promise to incorporate more mid 90’s basketball stars into my opening.  Who doesn’t love a good Horace Grant reference, right?

Stranger than Fiction Public Access: The Actor’s Studio

This week The Stranger than Fiction Show’s own Dallas James   the game film on this past week’s show.  He reminds us how to propose with a box of viagra, what to do when Mickey loses his head at Disneyland, and we take a look at a day in the life of Brett the Pornographer.

I think the Pixies had it right when they said, “It’s educational!” Just like UMass . . .

Stranger than Fiction Public Access: Weird Al

leave a comment »

Weird Al Yankovic stops by on a break from filming his new music video to catch this week’s Stranger than Fiction Show that featured a roommate selling your VCR (probably for crack). The show also showed us what happens when an ice cream cone, a toaster, and an elephant try to save a beached whale. And who could forget Charlie the Trashman trying his hand at dentistry.

It all sounds pretty painful.

Live Show Update

This week’s show is shaping up to be quite a barn burner with plenty of divorces and acquittals in the news.  Plus who could forget that wedding season is upon us.  I’m sure drunk chicks everywhere are getting their livers ready in anticipation of finding that man who can give them a MRS degree.  See you turkey-basters  this week since I won’t be in next week’s “Carpocalypse” Show.  It’s getting real on the west side of Los Angeles . . .

Stranger than Fiction Public Access: Paula Poundstone

This week we take a trip in the way back machine and visit some classic stand-up from the 1980’s with Paula Poundstone! After visiting the Stranger than Fiction Show Paula learned that you can’t have sex in the workplace, but you can fart there! But if you do a Bill Cosby smackdown can break out at anytime.

Stranger than Fiction Public Access: Weiner-gate

leave a comment »

Embattled former Congressman Anthony Weiner cuts a political ad for The Stranger than Fiction Show.  The ripped political playboy re-caps this week’s show that included a couple that bungee jumps for milk, pigeons who get pooped on, and a Post Office bromance.

There’s gonna be photo-dongs for everyone! Because . . . you know . . . sending pictures of your junk to chicks works every time.
