But What Have You Done Lately?
May 2018-present: Regularly Performing Standup
I used to perform a lot in the past, but I've written some new material and resumed performing regularly as of late.
April-May 2018: Created and Taught a New Satire Writing Class
I developed the curriculum for a new six-week satire writing course and taught it at People's Improve Theater. I hope to do more things like this in the future.
February 2017-present: Writing Original TV Pilot Scripts
I've written several (seven at last count) pilot scripts for original TV shows this year, working on mastering the form and developing some exciting ideas for new shows. A few are available as samples - others are still in first draft form.
July-November 2017: Campaigning, Voter Guides, Poll Work, and General Civic Engagement
I'm getting increasingly involved in state and local politics in New York, with a big focus on getting people more engaged and better represented in elections and within the Democratic party structure. After doing some writing, data compilation, advocacy, and canvassing, I worked at the polls on election day, combining my interest in civic engagement with my basic human desire to get money.
September-November 2017: Writing/Consulting for a Developing Sports Comedy TV Pilot
I can talk more about this later, but I'm helping with the development of a half-hour, topical sports comedy show.
