I have been neglecting my Google+ people for a while. I need to get better at that, but between Twitter and Facebook, I just get overwhelmed!

Anyway, to all of those Google Plus friends who have any interest in my comedy or tell me that they'd like to come out to a show when I'm performing, I've got one in Orlando this Friday.

I'm featuring for Dustin Diamond, who played Screech in "Saved By The Bell". He and I are doing two shows Friday night, and I'd love for you to join us!

Use promo code AVITABLEROCKS to get 50% off tickets, and I hope to see you there! 

To those of you who don't live in the Orlando area, comment if you want me to let you know when I'm performing near you!

+Joe Sidote I use Hootsuite to post to Twitter but I also don't want to post the same thing across all platforms. I like each post to be at least a little different.

About seven years ago, I made an Avitable purity test that was designed to see if you were pure or if you were Avitable. Well, seven years ago I had only had sex with one person, didn't drink, and had not engaged in all types of fun activities. So I decided it was time for a revamp.

Go take the new Avitable Purity Test and comment on the post or below with how Avitable you are!
How Avitable Are You? There are so many purity tests out there that subjectively decide whether you should avoid walking into churches

It's important to focus on the future while reflecting on what's behind you. #literally #all #about #that #bass

I'd like to see the CDC and physicians nationwide do a massive overhaul of the outdated use of the BMI scale. It's woefully inaccurate.

Agreed; height vs. weight is a terrible way to accurately measure muscle mass vs. fat in a human being. After all, most bodybuilders are very much overweight but have very low body fat percentages. Other metrics are far more accurate (though not as robust as Hydrostatic Body Composition Testing), including the Harris-Benedict and Mifflin-St. Jeor formulas for basal metabolic rate, the Navy Tape, Jackson/Pollock 3,4,7, Durnin and Parrillo methods for body fat estimation, etc.

However, this doesn't change the fact that we as a society have generally come to accept that higher body fat measurements/obesity as perfectly fine when in fact, they can be detrimental to longevity and overall health. We shouldn't keep confusing self-confidence with ignorance of human health standards that have been tirelessly researched & established by the scientific community. Society may agree that big is beautiful, but you'd be hard pressed to find science that would advise obesity as a healthy lifestyle.

I presided over a memorial service today, and it was the first time I'd ever done that, in my capacity as a comedian and an ordained minister. I don't know if the fact that she was a friend made it easier or more difficult. Check out my thoughts:

I didn’t know Wendy as well as most of you, but I was fortunate enough to knew her nonetheless. She touched my life just as she touched

I had a great time with +Chef Dennis Littley +Maggie Unzueta +Scott Scowcroft and +Ryan Hanley today - if you get a chance, check out the replay and watch me lower the standards of everyone involved. I told myself I was going to behave but I couldn't do it! At least I wasn't naked . . . from the waist up.

It was great seeing my friends +Carolyn Capern and +Greg Trujillo in the  discussion as well as +Kristin Drysdale  - when are you going to come to Orlando, Kristin so I can see if you're this awesome in person?

And I might as well whore myself out a bit - check out my site at http://www.avitable.com and follow me on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/avitable. Hell, if you want to stalk me, you can even do it on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/avitable. My house, the Avitable Camp for Wayward Women, has its own Facebook page!

Until next time . . .love and boners!

Omgoodness, +Adam Avitable, you surely give me the giggles. I'm obviously not that innocent with six kiddos having come from me - but still, the things you say just naturally make me blush. One of the greatest moments was seeing +Scott Scowcroft(!) grab his hat when you went into how you spell your name for restaurants. #PureQualityEntertainment  there!!!

As to the Orlando question - - gosh I don't know, but I'd love it to be sooner than later! =D) Great job today - you are 100%fun!

Thank you. You flatter me so much with your words. All I've done is stripped myself down naked, literally and figuratively. It doesn't take anything more than a lack of shame and a willingness to show your true self to the world. Anyone can do it!

Introduction
Adam Heath Avitable is an attorney, a stand-up comedian, a humorist, and an unsolicited underwear model. His book, Interviews with Dead Celebrities, was listed as one of Amazon.com's top 10 humor books, but his mom still won't read it. His site, Avitable.com, has been called "a place where tact goes to die" and "the dirty little secret of the Internet". His comedy is enjoyed by audiences of all ages, as long as they have sharp minds, sharper wits, and an appreciation for fat hairy guys who tell jokes on stage. 

Adam has performed at the Orlando Improv, lectured on "Humor in Writing" for the University of Central Florida, spoken at numerous conferences about writing and humor, and worked with entertainers from Bobcat Goldthwait to Bobby Slayton.

I have used this firm multiple times. Way too many times. Like, man, I wish I didn't have a foot that is apparently drawn to the gravity of the center of the Earth times. They usually do a fantastic job. There have been one or two times where I felt disappointed in the outcome because I was completely in the right, and would have appreciated a little more personal vigor, but for the value, I can't complain. This firm works hard, the staff is fantastic, and I completely recommend them to everyone and anyone who may have the occasion to get tickets in Central Florida.
