He has two features in development with DreamWorks and Todd Phillips/Warner Brothers and has recently re-teamed with his friend Paul Reiser and the Carson Company to create a Larry Sanders behind the scenes sitcom that takes aim at the Tonight Show in 1970 LA.

Stranger Things: Night Three of the RNC

(0) Comments | Posted July 22, 2016 | 3:57 PM

I have been watching the RNC for the past few nights, listening carefully to every single word that has been said and to my amazement, beyond the endless hyperbole, imbecilic accusations, head-spinning lies and the EPCOT moving sidewalk parade of immediate, cosmetically enhanced relatives of the candidate who are standing...

It is time for all the allied countries of the free world who are now profound potential victims of terrorism to mobilize and do one mass relentless military strike against ISIS hitting them from all sides imaginable.

Now that everyday street vehicles have become weapons of mass destruction, the risk...

Being the comedy writer by trade that I am, I try to seek out the funny as much as I can in order to produce those wonderful little gas bubbles of giggles in the gut of my audience with a light cologne splash of enlightenment whenever possible.

We Are A Democrazy And It's All Your Fault.

(0) Comments | Posted July 13, 2016 | 2:25 PM

Why is it we just sit around and allow Congress to do whatever the hell it wants despite the demands of the American people?

We are not a Democracy. We are not even a Republic---although that is exactly how we operate.

We are a Democrazy.

We sit back and...

Trump And The Teslafication Of America

(1) Comments | Posted July 11, 2016 | 7:21 PM

The presumptive GOP candidate, Orange Julius Caesar, has turned us all into Teslas -- and by this I mean thanks to his divisive and often blatantly racist language, we have become a country of freewheeling autonomous killing machines, driven by the same kind of violent road rage that can be...

Once Upon A Boy Of Summer

Summer has officially begun its reunion tour, performing at all the Tanglewood festivals of me and just like that the file drawer that houses my seasonal memories has been flung open and I am awash with memories of summer days gone by.

When I was little, my blue collar parents...

I have always been a fan of the wind.

There is something about its invisible yet sometimes forceful presence that deeply touches me.

It's like being a principal performer in the all singing, all dancing three ring production of the greatest show earth.

It's like seeing what is there...

The legacy of the musician is swaddled in the indelible melodies that they leave behind like comet trails that loop and swoop around our hearts like childhood kites.

They are attached to our innermost longing which is the secret harmonic signature of who we really are.

Sometimes the only musical...

Dating Your Heart

I've been dating my heart now, on and off, for years, ever since the days before it came of age and so did I.

When you are little, your heart is every bit as wild and out of control as you are and for that brief blink of whimsy toddler...

The Trumpire Strikes Out

(2) Comments | Posted June 29, 2016 | 12:31 PM

Last night, the Yankees, leading the Texas Rangers into the damp night 9th inning with one out, had a three-hour-plus rain delay and suffered an inexplicable loss that included three batters getting plunked like ducks in a shooting gallery.

The game itself was perilous because of the weather conditions which...

How To Succeed At Failure

With today's topic being failure and my personal relationship with that particular vengeful God, I have to note what happened right before I set upon writing this.

I simply could not connect my Bluetooth keyboard to my iPad and the message I kept getting was:

BREAKING NEWS! THIS JUST IN!

You know why they call it breaking news?

Because it is broken.

Most of the time what your Wolfs and Foxes are yapping about is nothing more than the sound of their own yapping and yelping.

The actual information you get most of the time can fill maybe half a...

If we got to vote in terms of evolution, I would put in a request that in the future women come with tails.

No I do not mean that women are, in the Trump sense, dogs. No, no, no.

GENERATION VS DEGENERATION: IT ALL WENT BOOM

You know who is better than Trump? Every single one of us.

We know better but are being way too complacent and polite---which is the benchmark of being a Democrat.

Perhaps we are too damn civil for our own kind.
