Letters, I get letters. Just look at this one from the best hair in comedy, Mr. Lord Carrett...
Hi Gang: It's been awhile since my LA e-mail list got any love, so I'm sending you some, along with word of an upcoming date in Ventura May 11 & 12 (possibly with my old pal Blaine, if things workout!)
First of all, my site has been revamped since my last masse-mail. PLEASE play LORD CARRETT'S IMPOSSIBLY HARD ROCK & ROLLTRIVIA GAME if you have the time: http://www.LordofLaughs.com
and the big news is I'm a featured comic on myspace!
But, things have been going well ever since! I've signed with an agency, I'm playing NYC clubs including CAROLINE'S (thanks to my OTHER pal, Patton!) GOTHAM and THE COMIC STRIP and recently got some good exposure from The Wall Street Journal: http://www.punchlinemagazine.com/index.php?page=lord_carrett_of_human_bondage_90023467
Clips at: http://lordoflaughs.com/press.htm
and a newer clip at: http://comedynet.com/content_detail.html?cid=478
I hope to see you all (alright--just the sexy ones) at Comedy Esquire May 11-12.
Thanks Lordy. Now, I know what you're thinking. "Hey, Mr. J, it's nice to know about your comedy fiends, their gigs, and their personal problems...
...BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR BROTHER????"
Glad you asked. Maestro?
Issue one of "BREAKFAST OF THE GODS" rolls on towards its end with the newly posted Page 28! As if that weren't exciting enough, you'll also notice on that page my blurb about the biggest news in the life of moi to come down the pike in a while, namely that I'm hittin' the highway and leaving California for good.
"WHAT?", I hear you gasp, "Was it something we said?"
No, li'l campers, I've just been itching for a good long while to move someplace a little different, a little less ...here. Portland's the destination and I'll be heading out at the beginning of April. No, I don't have any golden opportunity awaiting me, I just like that town. Plus, I've got a couple of old friends living up there who will make it a little less daunting.
As money is always an issue where I'm concerned, you'll also notice that my blurb mentions donations. As much flight time as the seat of my pants have logged, I'm hoping to make my way with enough of a cushion so I won't have to turn to prostitution once I get there - at least not immediately.I appreciate any donations, advice, well wishes and last-ditch sexual advances (yes, it always comes back to that) the collective "you" would like to proffer before the big day.
And, rest assured, there will be some "going away/birthday party/fund raiser event" the weekend of March 24th so I hope to see the collective "you" there.
In the meantime, enjoy page 28!http://www.webcomincsnation.com/poyorick/botg/series.php
your wayfaring pal,
BrendanThat's my brother.
Dignity. Always dignity.
1) "Soon I Will Be Invincible!"by Austin Grossman . The latest in the pomo trend of fiction that deconstructs Comic Books and Super Heroes (see also "The Fortress Of Solitude" , "It's Superman" and "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay"), "...Invincible!" tells the story of the search for the missing Superman-ish "Corefire" from the perspectives of "Dr. Impossible" (Corefire's arch-nemesis) and "Fatale" (a bionic woman hero who has just joined Corefire's former super-team "The Champions"). Perhaps the most overtly fanboy fiction to come out, this novel manages to walk a very fine line between affectionate send-up and melancholy examination of heroes and villains. Worth it for the title alone.
2)"Babel"directed byAlejandro González Iñárritu. One of the most brutal films I've seen in a while, this modern fable on the need for real communication in our global village has a powerful impact that stays with you long after you close your laptop. Okay, maybe you won't be watching it on your laptop, and probably you won't be freaking out about the kids in the film (all of the children/teens in this film will break your heart, especially if you have kids yourself) like old "cries-like-a-girl" Jones did, but you should check out the film that should've gotten Best Picture this year. (Yes, I know, Scorsese deserves his award, but "The Departed" winning is like "Cape Fear" or "After Hours" winning. Good yes. But not "King Of Comedy"/"Last temptation..."/"Taxi Driver"/"Raging Bull" good. Begin the hating now.)
3) "Company (2006 Broadway Revival Cast) "Stephen Sondheim (Composer). After last year's revival of "Sweeney Todd", the director (John Doyle) announced that he would mount this new revival of "Company" with the same concept he had in "Sweeney..."- All of the actors would be the musicians as well. What could have been written off as a sophomore slump from a one-trick pony becomes a style that may be the next evolutionary step after Brecht. What could be more theatrical in a musical than having the actors play their own accompianment (sp.?)? The first great CD I've gotten this year.
And how's your post-Oscar week?
