Jon Stewart's Twitter War with Donald Trump at Stand Up for Heroes
Huffington Post - 4 months
In its tenth year, Stand Up for Heroes remains one of the great nights, with Bruce Springsteen performing an acoustic "Dancin' in the Dark" spiced with dirty jokes. And after a decade of working it, Bruce's comic timing is almost as good as his philanthropy. After Bob Woodruff was nearly killed, embedded with troops in Iraq in 2006, he and his wife Lee started this benefit celebrating the bravery of our military and raising funds to help those wounded. Working with Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox, the Woodruffs host this event, also the opening of the New York Comedy Festival, and last night Jim Gaffigan, Louis CK, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jon Stewart, who, in the spirit of the upcoming election recounted a tale of unprovoked, unsavory, racist tweets from Trump. The night also featured a state of the art auction with Lydia from Christie's keeping that bidding rising by the thousands. It's hard to keep your eye on the fast moving money but by the end of the night certain traditions were mai ...

Comedy Can't Be "One Size Fits All": When Louis CK Meets Jenna Marbles
Huffington Post - about 1 year
More than half a decade ago, I wrote some thoughts about the future of comedy in the digital age. Without much modesty I can say that some of my assessments (such as the increasing use of technology and the social-media new kind of comedy) were spot-on, others completely missed the mark (the core of the comedy content is less violent than I expected). A lot of clips have been broadcast on YouTube since then, and the world today is significantly different than it was back in 2010. What didn't change was the fact that comedy was and remains the most dominant category of video online. People are watching much more comedy today, and the gap continues to grow. The irony is that we don't laugh more than half a decade ago. As President Reagan would have put it - ask yourself this: are you laughing more than you did five years ago? So how come there are many more attempts to make us laugh but our lips stay sealed? In the other fields online the name of the game today is Personalized Content. ...

What Don't We Get About Donald Trump's Humor?
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Donald Trump is catching a certain amount of flack in the gotcha media this week for an act of satirical pantomimicry he performed, imitating a man with a congenital musculoskeletal disorder. I'm not sure if it will help or hurt Trump's political chances. It would be grossly insincere for me to pretend to understand what his supporters think. If you think Donald Trump would make a good president, I don't know where you draw the line, taste-wise. "Yes, he sometimes comes off a little insensitive. But in his defense, he is the worst person in the universe." Maybe that's a little strong. Jared from Subway is objectively worse. Although, unlike Donald Trump, who's never done anything that wasn't shoddy and base and cheap and vulgar and repulsive, Jared did encourage people to eat fresh. Plus you can't write off a whole candidacy over one inopportune comic impression. When George W. Bush was running in 1999, he imitated Karla Faye Tucker, a woman he'd executed: 'Please,' Bush whimp ...

Laugh Your A** Off During NY Comedy Fest With These Tragic Clowns
Huffington Post - over 1 year
COURTESY OF NEW YORK COMEDY FESTIVAL If there's anything I learned during my brief middle school jaunt as an ac-TOR, it's that one must balance drama with comedy to delight an audience. That's what those happy/sad masks meant right? Let's say yes. Divorces can certainly be drama filled, so it's a great idea to balance out all that turmoil with some chuckles. And seeing as it's the New York Comedy Festival this week, this is a great time to highlight some of my favorite comics and their takes on divorce and breakups. Some language in the clips below is NSFW! You've been warned! Up first is of course Louis CK. He has frequently declared his very positive take on divorce, even going so far as to claim that divorce was the greatest part of his life. In the clip below, hear him explain,"Marriage is just a larva stage for true happiness -- which is divorce." Kathy Griffin went through a really rotten divorce not too long ago, full of awful accusations and sad details. But Kat ...

Standing up to My Fears (and Finding My Voice Along the Way)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
There are a lot of reasons that I'm a writer and not a performer. My nose has more turns than Google Maps. I have a comically oversized head that would only really work in a Munsters reboot. And I'm blessed with a real "Jew's who" of medical ailments: worry, doubt, tsuris, shpilkes, acid reflux, severe panic disorder, non-severe panic disorder, free-floating anxiety, iffy sinuses and a shyness so severe I sometimes need to take a Xanax just to give myself the courage to take another Xanax... So, nobody was more surprised than me, when I woke up one morning in the spring of my 49th year and decided I had to push past all my fears and try stand-up comedy for the first time since 1988. If I was just having a mid-life crisis, I'd have picked something less personally embarrassing -- like growing a four-foot ponytail or buying a solid gold Segway. But stand-up is something that I had to do. And while I have spent the last twenty seasons in sitcom writers' rooms, that involves sitting ...

The Challenges of Dating As a Single Dad
Huffington Post - over 1 year
I have a lot to say about single fatherhood, divorce, dating, and midlife realizations. I have written journals for years, but this is my first time sharing any of my feelings publicly. When it came down to deciding what would be my first post, I went with the first thing that came to mind: The challenges of dating as a single dad. In future posts I will write more about experiences I have had, the choices single parents make, and the significant impact it can all have on one's children. At this stage of life, friendship and romance both hang in the balance of one's custody schedule. I enjoy the artistic expression of actor/comedian Louis CK. Part of what I like about him is that he's also a single dad, and I identify with much of what he portrays on his TV show. I think he's one of the funniest comics in the business. I imagine Louis and I could be great friends, and I'm sure many guys in my situation feel the same about him. But the point I want to make about custody schedules is ...

Sophie Heawood: should we lie to our children?
Guardian (UK) - almost 2 years
‘There’s no doubt that some parents’ lies are truly inspired’ It all started so innocently. There we were in the local playground last week, the sun bright but cold, like a trickster in the sky. My child busily climbing up things and down them again, while I sat rooted to the bench with an arse colder than one of Vladimir Putin’s hugs, wondering how the other parents in this part of east London always manage to look so sexually attractive in waterproof clothing. And then it happened – the discordant, mangled wail of Greensleeves came waltzing through the air, in late February, and my daughter squealed “THE ICE-CREAM VAN IS HERE, MUMMY MUMMY I WANT AN ICE-CREAM!” Her little face exploded in hope and longing and lust, and I couldn’t face being the mean person who says no to yet another thing, so I took her excited hands in mine and told her what she needed to hear: that the van plays the music only when it has run out of ice-cream. Just like that, I realised how easy it is to lie to your ...

Woody Allen and the Art of the Impossible
Huffington Post - about 3 years
There are three things I've been reminded of since the reignited Woody Allen controversy started swirling around the blogosphere like one of those bizarre tornadoes that half the country thinks is God's reckoning on a sinful planet. One, unless the offer came from a close family member or a very close friend, I would never agree to be a nanny or a baby-sitter. Two, no matter the writer or the publication, there is no such thing as unbiased journalism. Finally, when it comes to push-button topics, facts are considered insulting; sound bites are divine. Why number one? As a gay, single man in his forties, should I ever be publicly accused of molesting a child, male or female, my reputation would be destroyed for life. If I legally cleared my name and won, I might avoid criminal punishment, but the guilty verdict would remain, if only in the shadows. My writing career has consisted of many things, like a new book about my dog. ("Methinks he loves his dog a bit too much, and he lets th ...

Agents of Change: 7 Inspiring People Worthy of Your Attention Right Now

Pussy Riot True, the six members of Pussy Riot -- that wildly fascinating Russian feminist punk rock protest group based in Moscow -- have publicly severed their ties with Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, but it's hard not to appreciate the verve of the two women. The "former" Pussy Riot duo was jailed for an anti-Putin protest outside a Moscow cathedral two years ago. They were released Dec. 23. Now, thanks to a firestorm of international support, they've embarked on a worldwide tour of sorts and have spoken out about a boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, which commence in Sochi Feb. 7. Their outspoken appearance on The Colbert Report on Feb. 4 generated buzz and fueled even more interest on Russia's political views and policies regarding its LGBT community -- a Russian law banning gay "propaganda" from r ...

  • 2010
    Age 42
    In a 2010 interview, C.K. talked about how, after his divorce, he thought, "well, there goes my act."
    More Details Hide Details He alluded to the way that his marriage had been central to his act and his life, and he said that it took him approximately a year to realize "I'm accumulating stories here that are worth telling." One element in his preparation for stand-up was training in the boxing gym, including with Lowell, Massachusetts fighter Micky Ward, trying to "learn how to... do the grunt work and the boring, constant training so that you'll be fit enough to take the beating." On December 10, 2011, C.K. released his fourth full-length special, Live at the Beacon Theater. Like Hilarious, it was produced independently and directed by C.K. However, unlike his earlier work, it was distributed digitally on the comedian's website, foregoing both physical and broadcast media. C.K. released the special for $5.00 and without DRM, hoping that these factors and the direct relationship between the artist and consumer would effectively deter piracy. At the end of the special, the release of a new album, recorded at Carnegie Hall the previous year, is mentioned. As of December 21, 2011, the sales of the special from C.K.'s website have earned him over $1 million.

The show addresses life as a divorced, aging father. In season three, episodes dealt respectively with a date with an unstable bookshop clerk (played by Parker Posey); a doomed attempt to replace a retiring David Letterman; an aborted visit to C.K.'s father; and a dream-reality New Year's Eve episode in which C.K. ends up in China. These episodes were ranked in critic Matt Zoller Seitz's favorite 25 comedy episodes of 2012.

    More Details Hide Details C.K. has defended same-sex marriage in his stand-up. About political partisanship, C.K. states, "Some things I think are very conservative, or very liberal. I think when someone falls into one category for everything, I'm very suspicious. It doesn't make sense to me that you'd have the same solution to every issue."
    He was nominated for an Emmy Award for writing on his 2008 special, Chewed Up.
