A Netflix Original Comedy Special

AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE UNITED STATES

streaming starts worldwide October 31, 2017.

This stand-up special is basically a feature length stand-up performance film. It is mostly satire of American exceptionalism as well as U.S. domestic and foreign policy. In it I address: racism, sexism, fascism, climate change, health care, LGBTQ rights, drones, mass incarceration, imperialism, and many other human rights issues.

I made this project on my own then sold it to Netflix. It was filmed in black & white in a low budget/do-it-yourself/documentary-style. The audio recording was done in a simple way with no separate laugh tracks artificially added.

To me, stand-up comedy is a technologically simple art form. So I filmed it in a technologically simple way that is both raw and intimate. For the viewer, it’s meant to capture the experience of sitting in a dark room, and from just 10 feet away, watching me do a stand-up show.

If you like it, and want to help me out: you can leave a review on the Netflix review section, tell a friend about the special, or tell your friends about it on social media/twitter using the hashtags

Great venue. Nice small theater. Plus they don’t force a 2 drink
minimum on you & they don’t interrupt you by making you pay your bill
during the show.

NEXT BIG PROJECT OF MY OWN

America Is the Greatest Country in the United States

My upcoming stand-up comedy film “America Is the Greatest Country in
the United States” will be out soon. I am currently editing it. The
stand-up I do in this movie mostly satirizes American exceptionalism
as well as U.S. domestic & foreign policy – addressing many topics
including: racism, sexism, imperialism, health care, immigration, gun
control, and the environment. More details soon.

New web series I’m in which was produced & directed by The Onion for

UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT SEASON 3

I’m in two episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 playing a
character much different from the character I played on 30 Rock. All
episodes start streaming on Netflix May 19th.

Currently doing multiple shows every night in NYC. At the Comedy
Cellar just about every night – check their website – all their shows
sell out in advance. Doing many other clubs as well as non-comedy club venues in NYC. I don’t post info on these shows often. Sometimes on Twitter I announce them.


My new stand-up album & feature length stand-up performance movie

will be out later this year. It will be called “America Is the Greatest Country in the United States”. I do shows nightly in NYC. Mostly at the Comedy Cellar. Check their website for details. When I’m in NYC, I usually do multiple shows a night, and each set I do is about 15 minutes. But in October & November I’m also doing 4 headlining sets in NYC in Manhattan & Brooklyn where I will be doing 70 minute sets.


I was recently a guest on a new show on Fusion network called The
Young Turks on Fusion. Here is a clip of me answering describing the voters’ dilemma if there
only voting choices were Clinton & Trump.

New Stand-Up Video from The World Champ

I will have a stand-up movie and album out later this year called
America Is the Greatest Country in the United States*. Here is a some
footage of me doing stand-up. This material will be in the new movie
and album. But for the movie & album, I will use a recording from
another show. I decided to share with you some of the material now
since some of it is timely.

*”America is the Greatest Country in the United States” is also a joke
from my act. I will probalby have this be the title of my new stand-up
movie & album, but I might choose a different name – but I will still
do the joke in my act.


 

 


New book IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED in book stores NOW!

Hardback. 208 pages. 5.9 x 0.9 x 8.3 inches. Publisher: Hachette Books.

Hi. The past couple years I’ve been working hard on my new book IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED. It is a 208 page hardback book of drawings and cartoons that I made. “Why a book of drawings?” you ask. Well, I started stand-up when I was 19. But I’ve been drawing since I was kid. And the past couple years I did a lot of drawings. In the book, most of the drawings are comedy. But some are serious and dark satire –dealing with issues of racism, sexism, classism, fascism, government corruption, and many other issues. But like I said, it’s mostly comedy.

For much of October & November I will be doing special stand-up shows where the ticket includes the show and the book! Also in October & November I will be doing book store events. Each book store appearance will include a talk, a Q&A, and a book signing.

Click IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED on this website for more info and a preview of the book.
