The pilot for HBO’s “Newsroom” opens on a panel at Northwestern University featuring Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels) sandwiched between two angry, pedantic hacks engaged in the sort of unashamed punditry that would be embarrassing if it weren’t so commonplace. When asked by an undergrad why he thinks America is the greatest country in […]
I saw “Prometheus” last night.
What the fuck were you all on about? It was fine!
It seems like all I’ve read about this film is how disappointed people were by it, or that they outright hated it. Sure, the dialogue was garbage and the character constructs were pretty lazy (“I’m here for the money” was […]
As a former actual curator, of like, actual art and whatnot, I think I’m fairly well positioned to say that you folks with your blog and your Tumblr and your whatever are not actually engaged in a practice of curation. Call it what […]

It provides awkward moments that are actually organic, as opposed to the lazy comedy tropes in recent years of characters just creating awkward situations out of thin air and saying things as if they’re not aware they’re even human beings.

If I hadn’t been booked a couple months in advance for the Jimmy Pigfeet Challenge and the subsequent stand-up comedy show in Coxsackie, I’d be in downtown Troy for this event. Trust me. Hell, I’m going […]
From last Thursday, I called in to Ethan Ullman’s “Alternative 2 Sleep” program (broadcast live every Thursday at 10pm on WCDB FM in Albany and online at Comedy Pipe). We talk about the Times Union “Best of the Capital Region” poll, […]
