One of the last things I worked on with DJ Faucet was an episode of Funny or Die’s Test Tube, which was released today! I wrote the last two sketches.
I wrote this thing about women from the ocean trying to find true love. It’s a slow burn. Stick with it.
In order to spend more time on some new projects and cool opportunities that have come my way, I recently made the difficult decision to leave DJ Faucet, the sketch comedy team I’ve been writing and performing with at iO West for the last two-and-a-half years. I love these guys a lot, and I’m so proud of the weird, dark sketch comedy we’ve made together — comedy that we’ve brought to the Comedy Central Stage, the San Francisco Sketchfest, the Chicago Sketchfest, and the Kirk Douglas Theater, among other places. If you’re in Los Angeles, please join us on Tuesday, 3/24 at 9 pm at the LA Scripted Comedy Fest at iO West. You can buy tickets through that link.
This won’t be the last thing you see from me with DJ Faucet folks — not only do I have plans to continue collaborating with people on the team in other ways, but we also have some cool video stuff coming out soon.
Here are a couple of DJ Faucet videos that I wrote and were shot, edited, and directed for video by the excellent gentlemen of Cascade Up:
I’ve been performing this with DJ Faucet for almost two years as a stage sketch, and it’s one of my favorite things I’ve written. If you like DARKNESS, this is for you. If you do not like darkness, THIS IS ALSO FOR YOU.
I have been doing several things! For example, building a cardboard town for this video I wrote for DJ Faucet:
Additionally, I have two new food articles up on Table Matters. One is on why you shouldn’t eat at Dunkin’ Donuts (with a recipe for the absolutely kick-ass homemade maple-frosted donuts you see above) and the other is about locally produced cookbooks from the 70s and 80s, with an awesome recipe for “The Ribsticker” and a terrifying recipe for Gumdrop Bread.
