Michael Showalter & Janeane Garofalo @ Union Hall - July 15, 2007 (CRED)
I attended one of the Michael Showalter CD tapings at Union Hall (which took place a week after the Union Hall anniversary show you see above), and besides some technical difficulties that had Michael going a little nuts, the show was great. Oh yeah, and as usual with a seated UH show, the only problem is that their seats are so uncomfortable. My junk literally went numb at one point and I think the base of my spine is broken. Other than that it was hilarious!
I was supposed to see the NYC premier of The Ten (not the 'show' at Gramercy Theatre, the actual movie), but because of a mix-up ended up on the red carpet between OK Magazine and InTouch Magazine. I wasn't supposed to take pics, but took some anyway. Pics from that chaotic and scary scene HERE (warning: I'm no Henri Cartier-Bresson).
Comedy Central Presents is gearing up for some live tapings here in NYC at the end of August. Highlights include performances by Eugene Mirman, Leo Allen (Friday August 24th, time TBD), and Hard n Phirm (Sunday August 26th, 5:45pm check-in). I am really super excited for west coasters Hard n Phirm's show. I can't praise them enough. Their flawless displays of stand-up, video, and music are the best there is. If you can only make one of these tapings, I urge you to go to that one.
Speaking of Eugene Mirman... He's about to embark on a nice little east cost tour. He'll also be at Bumbershoot.

Michael Showalter taping @ Union Hall - July 26, 2007 (CRED)
NYC comedy staple Hot Tub Variety (hosted by Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler) is having a benefit for Darfur on Monday August 6th at Pianos. The show features a ridiculous line-up featuring guest host Pete Holmes (Kurt will be out of town), AD Miles, Gabe & Jenny, Matt McCarthy, and the Free Love Forum. Great show, great cause.
David Wain has a new web series called Wainy Days. The first episode is pretty good. And a new Michael Showalter Showalter episode is live. Those Stella guys really are tops at making great short videos.
