Tiny Vaudeville #3

Tonight, we will be presenting the 3rd Tiny Vaudeville for 826LA at the Echoplex. If you are in Los Angeles, or within --say-- a five hour drive of Los Angeles, then this is absolutely a show worth seeing.

What? Don't believe me?

Well, I'll set our trust issues aside for just a moment to shamelessly brag about our line up.



Hosted by Marc Evan Jackson & Joel Spence

With special guest stars:
Bob Odenkirk
(Mr. Show; Tom Goes to the Mayor; Breaking Bad)

Charlyne Yi
(Knocked Up; the forthcoming Paper Hearts)

Martin Starr
(Freaks & Geeks; Knocked Up; Adventureland)

and more!

Magician Arthur Trace
The Historic Country/Western Duo Claybo & Downs
Battle-of-the-bands winner The Pity Party
and many more surprises!

Orchestra led by Dan Bern
and featuring Common Rotation

See? I wasn't kidding about the show.

Now, seriously, let's talk about these trust issues...

S.W.I.P.E. - on Tubefilter!

This week, ran a story about our forthcoming web series, S.W.I.P.E.

Never willing to miss an opportunity to shamelessly promote our work, we're throwing the link up here. We're thrilled to have contributed, in any way, to the possibly accurate internet rumor of "silent studio backing."

ON NEWSTANDS: Script Magazine (March/April 09)

The latest issue of Script Magazine is out!

This time around, I was thrilled to learn that my feature interview with Susannah Grant about her script for Joe Wright's upcoming drama, The Soloist, made the cover story. Susannah is an amazing writer, and our fantastic conversation delved beyond process and into the writer's responsibility to protect truth in storytelling.

Also in this issue, I share yet another dazzling tale of Hollywood douche-baggery!

In my article, Additional Writing, I ask the question: Just how much would it suck if you wrote a film that went to Sundance and the director took your name off of it?

Answer: A shit ton.

True story.
