Hey friends, I’ll be in LA for two more days before returning to Chicago. Here is where you can see me!
Tonight: Unnecessary Evil at Westside Comedy Theater. 8pm.
Then tomorrow will be the second ever We Still Like You in LA. Cohosted by myself and the great Andy Sell, we’re bringing to you a lineup of some of our favorite LA comics. Including Joe McAdam, Bill Cruz, Alison Stevenson, Kevin Camia, Ever Mainard, and Allen Strickland Williams!

If you’re in Portland, OR, or Los Angeles, CA, come say hey at a show or two!
Been a while since an update–so sorry about that if you’ve checked to see anything new. Not much new info has surfaced because I’ve been busy! Quick recap since our last post: We Still Like You visited Lawrence, KS, was put up at iO Theater in Chicago, and returned to its favorite Logan Square backyard! I’ve also been cast on an iO Harold Team (schedule for those shows coming soon), and I can be found every Monday now co-hosting the Schubas Tavern Open Mic. Plus work and other shows and my parents being in town to visit and stuff. Anyway, I’ll be doing shows in Chicago, Portland, and LA this month. Here is the info!!
8/8 – SUPER TALENT SHOW at iO Chicago
10:30 in the Chris Farley Cab
$14, Free for students
8/10 – Sadsacks and Wisecracks @ Hi-Hat Club
8/11 – Seven Deadly Sins (I’ll be telling a story about WRATH!)
8/13 – Rat Pack Comedy @ Holiday Club
I’m on the great Dan Friesen’s podcast, Friesen Point, and we do something very special. Instead of just having a great and funny interview, we have a great and funny interview while They Might Be Giants’ Apollo 18 plays in the background.
It’s pretty weird and I nerd out about TMBG a lot.
Hey trash humans! Chicago’s best storytelling show/party is going to be visiting Milwaukee for the first time this weekend on May 29th. If you’re in the area, make sure you come see us bring up some of MKE’s best comics to tell horrific tales of personal shame. Also, it’ll feature local favorite Dave Losso, who is GUEST HOSTING the show the following night.
Oh yeah, there’s another WSLY on the 30th. Back in Chicago at Brainstorm Comics (the normal location of Yeah Buddy Awesome Time comedy show) at 8:30. Both of these shows are totally free and totally BYOB and going to two We Still Like You’s in two nights will probably ruin your life and you should do it.
I recently wrote this article for The Whiskey Journal, and I hope you’ll give it a read!

The wedding of my best friend and Social Dynamite-partner, Scott Kirchner (Maximum, iO Chicago), is bringing me back to my home town. I’ll be doing at least three shows while in town, and none of them are standup! Instead I’ll be doing We Still Like You (April 30, 9pm), returning to my literary improv team Use Your Words (May 1, 8pm), joining a cluster of random Chicago improvisers (May 1, 8:45 pm), and doing some variety stuff at Brice Johnson’s Cubix Rube show (May 1, 10pm).
Most of these shows will be free, if not all of them, so please come out and join us!
If you live outside of Chicago, or have ever missed a show, or would just like to relive some of the shameful stories we’ve brought to you in the past, then you can now download and subscribe to the WE STILL LIKE YOU PODCAST! The podcast is for free (of course) in the iTunes store. It features select stories from our past shows, all tied together by a common theme.
The show is hosted by Tyler Snodgrass, Dan Sheehan, J. Michael Osbourne, and Danii Gallegos. The Podcast is produced by Jesse Betend. Give it a listen here!
Chicago comedian and writer Andy Boyle produces a fascinating podcast about how people make/have made their living. It’s all about jobs and careers and is called The Working It Podcast. He was nice enough to have me on to discuss my life as a Missourian, my [short-lived] career as a teacher, and my other random jobs I’ve had. It was a really fun chat and Andy does a great job, so I hope you’ll give my episode a listen, and also check out the whole catalog online!
