The Ultimate Nerd-ament is here!

The Ultimate Nerd-ament with Stanely & JAX is a brand new webseires that I co-created for Stan Lee’s YouTube Channel, World of Heroes.  It can best be described as comic books meets March Madness and the first two episodes are out now.  The show is completely family friendly and you don’t have to be a comic book fan to enjoy it.  Check out the first two episodes below and let me know what you think!  New episodes arrive every Thursday, so be sure to subscribe to World of Heroes so you never miss a single one!

Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Turkey Day 2014

Now it can be told! In July of this year, I got to puppeteer on the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Turkey Day Special. Shout! Factory, who sponsored the marathon, has begun putting the bumpers we shot online. You can see the first one here…

And in case the credits flew by too quick, here’s a freeze frame…

Never been more proud to be a Robot Technician in my life.  And I got to work with one of my creative idols, Joel Hodgson.  It was a dream come true.

Subscribe to Shout! Factory’s MST3K YouTube Channel to catch all the bumpers as they are released.  You can also check out some behind the scenes photos on Shout! Factory’s Facebook Page.  I also puppeteered on the new MST3K Turkey Day DVD set which you can pick up by CLICKING HERE.

To Whom It May Concern

ToWhom-nodate

This Saturday night, October 4, 2014 at 8:00PM, I’ll be participating in the To Whom It May Concern show at the Lyric Hyperion Theatre and Cafe.  This is a really fun evening where people read read letters they have written or received, in front of an audience.  I’ve done the show a few times before, but this will be the first time I’ll be reading a deeply personal letter I have written.  I’d love for you to be there.

The show is the mastermind of, the amazing, Jayne Entwistle and is recorded monthly for a podcast.  I’ve done the show twice before, once reading letters kids sent in to Dr. Steve of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd and once improvising a letter with my good friend Chris Sheets.   It’s always a fun show and well worth the $10 at the door!  Don’t miss it!

If you’d like to hear my previous appearances at To Whom It May Concern, links to the podcast episodes are below.  Please note, there is some NSFW language and themes in some of the letters by other people.
