Tiny Vaudeville!

Tonight, we are presenting the very first edition of Tiny Vaudeville.

What the hell is Tiny Vaudeville and what in the world do you have to do with it? Both good questions, but frankly, your tone's a little hostile.

Like regular-sized vaudeville of yore, Tiny Vaudeville is a variety show packed with amazing acts, magic, comedy, celebrities... all cobbled together somewhat haphazardly in the good name of helping children.

Not only does Tiny Vaudeville mark the long-awaited writing collaboration between Ginsburg & McIntyre and the insanely talented Acker & Blacker, but it's also a super-collaboration with LA's coolest non-profit, 826LA.org.
In addition, I'll be directing this madhouse of talent.

I'm not joking. They're talented and they're completely mad. This evening's show features: Dave Foley, Samm Levine, Joel Spence, Romi Dames, Derek Hughes, James Adomian, Al Madrigal, Kirsten Vangsness, and Mark Gagliardi.

Not enough? Well, we also have music by Garfunkel & Oates, Pop Levi, Pop Waffle, and Dan Bern!

Still not enough? Did I mention there's a bar?

Here are the details you'll need:

Monday, January 26, 2009
8:00pm - 10:00pm
The Echoplex
1154 Glendale Blvd
Los Angeles, CA

You can read the fancy press release here.

See you at the show!

ON NEWSTANDS: Script Magazine (Jan/Feb 09)

Matt Nix [Creator/EP of Burn Notice]
and Aaron Ginsburg visit a CIA Defense Contractor.

That's right, the latest issue of Script Magazine is out now.

This time around, I tried my hand at some Gonzo journalism. Thankfully, Matt Nix was game and Spy Games, the piece that came out of our discussions about his Burn Notice writing process, was explosive... to say the least. Pretty proud of this one.

In the mag, you will also find my article, What A Load Of Talent, which details how a promising VH1 clip-show pilot Wade and I wrote several years ago ended up on the shelf, never to see the light of day again.

NEWS: Chris Hardwick joins "Drunken Businessmen"

We are thrilled to be collaborating with the brilliantly funny Chris Hardwick on the G4 pilot, Drunken Businessmen.

In addition to being a Segment Host on G4's Attack of the Show, Chris is one half of the comedy duo Hard 'N Phirm, writes for Wired Magazine (where I "borrowed" the above pic), and runs a fantastic geek-chic blog called Nerdist. Subscribe already.

As before, the details of the show are highly confidential. What you can expect is Japanese businessmen who are, by all accounts, utterly blitzed.
