STOLEN IDEA is a comedy punk rock musical that covers the theft of intellectual property in the artistic worlds of music and comedy. The story follows a standup comedian and a rock musician who are both approaching 40 and are fearful their time to “make it” is running out. One has his idea stolen, the other steals an idea.
Only the ghosts of Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell can help them now!

I made a short film about a weird town on the border of Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana called Arkippiana.
It stars me, Horatio Sanz, Drew Tarver, Hillary Matthews, and Betsy Sodaro and is directed by The Nix Brothers!
You guys are going to love this!
Eva Anderson, Richter, and I put this together with many of your favorite comedians Seth Morris as Bob Ducca, Jon Daly as Sappity Tappity, Eddie Pepitone as Santa, Lauren Lapkus as Andy’s wife, Betsy Sodaro as Andy’s mom, and me as BJORK!!!
Also Andy’s Son (MOOKIE BLAIKLOCK), Andy’s Sister (DIONA REASONOVER), Piano Playing Uncle (MIKE CASSADY), Red Sandwich (ERIC HOFFMAN), Michelle Obama (EGO NWODIM) and Talking Gift (ALLAN MCLEOD).
It’s a variety show in the style of the ones from the 70’s when Johnny Cash or Dolly Parton would host a show from their homes.
Once again I must say, you should check out SEESO.com!
Ladies and gentlemen, after seven years, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, (edited by Joe Wengert) and I have finally finished writing the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual. If I know anything about improv it is in this book. This is now the text book for the UCB Training Center. We wrote it so that someone who has never seen an improv show nor taken a class could still learn to improvise by reading this book.
It’s only $25 and for now it is only available at our website ucbtheatre.com store.
If you read it and it works for you please help us spread the word, and give me some feedback if you have any questions. We’d rather you buy it off our site but it is also available on Amazon. If you do buy it on Amazon please give us a review. Thanks!
