Comedian, father of a child with autism blasts the term ‘photo wrecker’ and lazy comedy

Unlike anyone else I know, I live in a world of very conflicting points of view. The comedian side of me knows how hard it is to make an audience laugh. If you want to kill the humor, try to make comedians behave like politicians–- going over every word they say to the...

I’ve lived in Los Angeles for nine months this week. It’s flown by, but I’ve also felt like I’ve lived out here for nine years. There’s so much going on at all times in all these little pockets of Hollywoodland that putting a time frame on all the events seems...

As Pandora’s Comedy Curator, I am always on the lookout for new content. If an artist releases a new album, I want to be sure to know about so that I can share it with Pandora listeners. My search, however, can be really challenging. Currently, there’s not a website...

Women make an average of 30% less than men: $.70 cents to a man’s $1.00. Women of color fair even worse when it comes to income—making just around $.64 cents to a white man’s dollar. While the odds are against the average woman, especially the average minority woman, in...

Yesterday morning my dad called to say he was so, so happy for me and my girlfriend about the DOMA news. I asked him if he was happy for himself too, that he’d be able to see his daughter married. “I am so, so happy for me too." he said. He was the first person I talked to...

As shocking as it may sound, not every comedian joked his or her way straight to stardom. Before they were making you laugh onstage, in movies and on television, they were working regular dead-end jobs-- you know, like most of us! From waiting tables to applying makeup to the...

Read: Marc Maron and Michael Ian Black blast each other on Twitter
