Super Live Adventure Podcast Recording at Full Cup!

It's time for another live podcast recording! What will Chris Sorrentino and I talk about this time? We're never sure, but after Hurricane Sandy and the recent election, as well as my rapidly approaching wedding, Thanksgiving, Disney's purchase of the Star Wars franchise, and our nerdy excitement about The Hobbit, this is going to be a big one. As if all of that weren't enough, comedian Greg Stone will be stopping by to join the discussion.

Many of you have been asking about a release date for the podcast. By the end of this year, we will have recorded 6 episodes, all of which will be available on iTunes in early 2013, with new episodes added monthly.

Until then, come join us live for the complete, unedited Super Live Adventure Podcast at 10:30 PM this Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at Full Cup, 388 Van Duzer Street, Staten Island, NY.

Super Live Adventure Podcast Theme Song!

Ezra Donellan (Kilgore Trout is Dead) created an original 8-bit inspired theme song for our podcast, and Chris and I couldn't be happier with it. It was recorded by the talented Joe Pecora of Red Room Studio. Check it out:

We're going to record a few episodes of the podcast before we make it available on iTunes, so definitely come down to a live show if you want to see what we're all about. Also, if you have any comments, suggestions or questions you'd like to send in, please do so. You can leave a comment here, or contact me using any of the links on the right side of this page.

As a reminder, I'll be performing at 138 Ludlow St., New York, NY this Saturday at 7:00 PM (more details in the calendar above).

Finally, please help me to raise some money for the National Kidney Foundation by clicking on the banner at the top of this page. It's a cause that means a lot to me, and I thank those who have made a donation so far.

That's all for now.

Super Live Adventure - One Year Anniversary!

I can't believe it's already been a whole year since Super Live Adventure started at Full Cup, and I'd like to thank the owners, employees and patrons for continuing to support this show.  Full Cup is where I first did stand-up comedy (back when it was Muddy Cup), and it's where I met my fiancee (back when it was The Cup).  As a performer, this place is my home.

I'm excited about this month's show.  Tim Duffy will be joining me as guest co-host, plus we'll have performances by RG Daniels, Justy Dodge, and Charlie Kasov.

Super Live Adventure is a free stand-up comedy show that takes place at Full Cup (388 Van Duzer Street, Staten Island, NY) on Tuesday, May 15th at 9:30 PM.

Drinks are 1/2 price from 8:00 to 10:00, the food is great, the coffee is delicious, and as always, 2 AM is Shaq-Time.

I'll see you there.

Donate Life

April is National Donate Life Month. Are you registered to be an organ donor?  If not, now is the time to sign up.  I understand why you may be hesitant.  To be honest, just thinking about it creeps me out a little, but through my involvement with the National Kidney Foundation, I have realized that there really aren't any good reasons not to be an organ donor.

I've heard the myths.  Some of you are worried about doctors that won't save you if you're a donor.  "They'll tear your organs out while you're still alive!"  Perhaps you fear your heart will be needed in the afterlife so that it may be weighed against a feather before the jackal-headed Anubis.  These and other myths are debunked at, a website that provides answers to all of your concerns.

Register today at, signup at the Department of Motor Vehicles the next time you renew your license, and talk to your families about your wishes.  114,048 people are waiting for a life saving transplant.  We should never say no to anything that may save or improve someone else's life.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please pass this information along.

Free Comedy at Far Fetched TONIGHT!

Hey everybody,

It's Good Friday, which means you should be commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ by not eating meat, then getting drunk at a free comedy show, so grab your Filet-O-Fish and head on down to Tantra Lounge, 1400 Forest Avenue, Staten Island at 9:00 for stand-up comedy and videos from the Far Fetched Crew. I'll be sharing a few new stories tonight.

As always, $10 gets you all-you-can-drink tap beer from 9:00 to midnight.   I'll see you in a few hours.
