My Promise to You!

Finally, at long last I have the rough behind the scenes footage from my recent tour in Mid-Missouri with Special Olympics. I hear that it might be flagged for offensive content???? According to You Tube. So, I’d really appreciate you rating it and commenting on it.  It’s not offensive at all, it’s about overcoming prejudice against people with disabilities.

And I hope if you enjoyed it you’ll forward to a friend.

Speaking of Good Friends, I’d like to pass on word about a really cool episode of Wizards of Waverly Place premiering this Friday.  Fans from way back remember the early days at Improv Olympic or iO west when I’d perform as Artie Smitten, the borscht belt comic/greedy manager of The Lampshades and The Great Mountebank the “Mentalist” The Lampshades was some of the most fun I had when first starting out in LA.

The "Great" Mountebank

Well, Set your Tivo’s kids and parents! The Lampshades play Harper’s parents on Wizards of Waverly Place on July 30th on the Disney Channel.

Kate Flannery, Jennifer Stone, Scot Robinson

Kate Flannery and Scot Robinson play Marty and Elaine Finkle, Alex (Selena Gomez)’s best friend, Harper Finkle (Jennifer Stone)’s folks –a twisted, upbeat, Disney-fied version of the Lampshades. It’s exciting and surreal. Hey please watch and tell them what you think at www.theLampshades.com.

So, I mentioned that for my birthday  I spent the weekend with my lovely gal-pal, girlfriend, and soul mate Samantha.  If you’re subscribed to the blog, then you’ll read all about how I spent an amazing 41st birthday. Hope you’ll read all about it next week.
