STF: Public Access “Lost” Promo

leave a comment »

Over the weekend I reached way back into the The Stranger Than Fiction Show vault and found this gem that was left on the cutting room floor.

Enjoy this “lost” promo for STF Public Access!

Truth be told, this was a one take wonder shot during another shoot. That might explain my homeless, less-than-camera-ready appearance.

Oral Traditions: True Stories from Funny People

leave a comment »

If you majored in embarrassment in college and/or life this night is for you.

One night only! The LA Connection (13442 Ventura Blvd. Sherman Oaks, CA 91423) will throw its hat into the storytelling ring with a unique one hour show where top level improv comics get to show another side of themselves.

“Oral Traditions: Storytellers at the LA Connection” is a show where comics tell true stories that they normally wouldn’t dare to tell in public. There is a good chance even their close friends don’t know the whole story. It will be honest, brutal, and probably funny.

The show’s theme will be . . . Embarrassing Moments.

I will tackle hosting duties for the inaugural show and feature Dallas James (“Halls” commercials), Tyler Jolley (“Thanks for Dying”), Sara Luka (“Tammi’s Tool Shed”), Chad Winkles (“Speeders”), and Danny Gonzalez (“Best Buy” commercials).

Tickets will be $5 door – red tickets will be accepted for this special event. *** Due to the selected theme, there is a good chance the material may skew a little blue, so keep the kids at home and be prepared for some jaw-dropping stories.

New Video – Shit Improv Actors Say

with one comment

Here’s a little video I put together with the crew from The Stranger than Fiction Show.  We saw an already over-crowded marketplace and said,  “Me, Too!”

I really can’t get enough of these Shit X Says video despite the over-saturation of the market.

I’ve been performing improv comedy for over a decade starting at Boston College and ImprovBoston before coming to Hollywood and setting up shop with the LA Connection.

Share it with all your comic friends and have a laugh at niche comedy.

Blue Skies,

– Zeke

Annoying Neighbors

with one comment

We’ve all had them.  They come in all shapes and sizes and bring a wealth of diversity and idiosyncrasies to the community.  Since moving to Venice I’ve had a few choice neighbors already. Here are my top three starting from the bottom working my way up:

Number 3) The meth-head who plays guitar for hours on end, playing the same pentatonic scales in between fits of yelling at the television. This guy is not only annoying, but he also brings an element of danger to the table.  Don’t get me wrong, I love blues inspired pentatonics and they are every guitar player’s bread and butter.  However, After hour four of the 12 bar blues in the key of A, I’m about ready to take my own life.  Save the fact that baseball season is ramping up and my only reprieve will be his random screams of agony as Manny goes down swinging with the bases juiced.  As a side note this neighbor may have allegedly accidentally discharged his shotgun in to the skull of a neighbor he was having an argument with.  I could devote an entire blog to this incident.

Number 2) The coked out sex fiend who nails skanks through out all hours of the day and night. Whoa! Hold on there Zeke! Why are you hating on a guy who’s getting his grove on?  You should be happy for him, right?  Wrong.  At some point I need to sleep, write, and masturbate and I sure as hell can’t do that while I have Ron Jeremy banging it out at all hours of the night.  Wait, I guess I could masturbate . . .

Number 1) The guy who sub-lets a sub-let from a friend of the guy who’s sub-let the sub-let and enjoys house music. This guys is perhaps the worst offender of all since he doesn’t belong there in the first place.  Forget about his crappy choice in music for a second.  He hasn’t been pre-screened and more importantly sub-lets usually attract the dregs of society.  I can’t remember the last time Thurston Howell the 3rd (much less his half-brother Graham Wellington) was looking for a sub-let for the summer, but I can tell you its not on his bucket list.

However, none of these compare to the neighbor that the Stranger than Fiction Show deals with in the embedded clip.  Check it out and share it with your friends.

This week’s shows

I will be performing twice this week with The Stranger Than Fiction Show.  Wednesday night March 31st, I’ll be at the Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA.    It will be a night of improv comedy with some of the top improvisers from The LA Connection Comedy Theater.  I go on a 945pm with the STF crew.

Friday night April 2nd The Stranger than Fiction Show heads over the hill to our home theater, the LA Connection in Sherman Oaks, CA.  As usual, we will be doing 90 minutes of our own brand of improv comedy starting at 9pm.  This show will feature our newest addition to the show, STF Bingo!  E-mail me at for details on either show.

Shameless self-promotion

Zeke Thomas 1 minute acting Speedreel

Listen up, Bitchfaces.

It’s time for a little self-promotion. Here’s my acting reel in all its glory. It has snippets of a couple of soon to be released projects as well as some classics. Hopefully, it does its job and piques your interest and gets you to come back for some more content. Seriously, more content is coming your way. Its all about content. Did I mention the future is in content?

And taxes.

Live show info and more videos on the way.
