Why I Won’t Have Netflix in my House
Why I Won’t Have Netflix in my House

I’m a comedian, which means I travel for a living. When I get to a city, one of two things happens: the comedy club puts me up in a hotel, or a “comedy condo.” The comedy condo is an apartment owned/rented by the club, and is the less preferred of the two options. Ratty furniture, […]

New Parent Crash Course
New Parent Crash Course

When people discover that you’ve got a baby on the way, they issue a lot of warnings. “You’re in for it now,” “It’s the ride of your life,” that sort of thing. “You’re going to get peed on, dude,” was my particular favorite. It hasn’t happened yet, by the way, but I’ve stood there like […]

I’m agnostic, which means I believe there’s something out there, I’m just not sure what.

Parenting Mythology
Parenting Mythology

At some point in our lives we have all looked at religions and past beliefs of ancient peoples (and probably current ones) and wondered something like “How could they have possibly believed that?” Some things just seem too fantastical, strange or just downright false, to have ever been thought of as truths.
