Hot Enough for Ya?

It’s already a great summer.  My 41st birthday is coming up July 23rd and in lieu of my usual birthday bash, I’ll be spending the week with my lovely girlfriend Samantha. Improv Trick Classes start in LA August 7 and I’ll be doing a show at BANG Studio called Zodiac Thrillers.

But first, the moment you’ve been waiting for…  Here we are in July and I promised the next post would include footage from one of the assemblies that me and Kristina O’Neil performed at all over Mid-Missouri.  Well, due to technical difficulties, I’ll have to post a bonus blog in a few days.

In other Improv Trick news, our good Friend James Adomian made it into the semi-finals of Last Comic Standing.  James has joined me onstage at the New Orleans Improv Festival and the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival as well as a special fundraiser in St. Louis where he portrayed George W. Bush at the Shlafly Tap Room. James wasn’t the only good friend of Improv Trick to appear in a comedy competition this year. Clownvis appeared on America’s Got Talent, ripping the B-List judges a new ego after their all-too quick judgement of how funny an Elvis Clown can be.

Speaking of laughs, my top pick of online funny is almost always found at The Onion.  This month’s favorite is a story entitled: Girl Raised From Birth by Wolf Blitzer. The young girl in this video is priceless.  You’ll laugh…why would I lie?

Those of you linked to me on facebook already heard the news, but Wizards of Waverly Place will be back for season 4 soon.  I’ll start shooting new episodes in mid-August. It’s probably unlikely that we’ll have a season 5 since Selena Gomez will be moving on to other projects after completing this season and another Wizards movie!  Maybe I’ll make it past the cutting room floor in the next one.

OK, I hate to brag…(pause for eye roll) but I’m very proud to announce that my high school Alma Mater, Ritenour Senior High will be inducting me into the Ritenour Hall of Fame this October. Ah, to be among the Pride of the Huskies.

Finally, the movie I did with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade is now available on iTunes.  See me singing with Amy Poehler and some of the top names in comedy today making cameos in this long-awaited indie Release Wild Girls Gone.
