I'm a guest on Louie Anderson's podcast this week!  Listen as my two favorite comics talk about structuring an act and the lost art of emceeing. Also, at the end Louie gives me a writing challenge. Pretty proud of being on this, as most of the guests he's had on are very well known (Jim Gaffigan, Carrot Top, Frank Caliendo, Brad Garrett from Everybody Loves Raymond, etc.)  Give it a listen and let me know what you think: http://louieandersonpodcast.libsyn.com/episode_25_craig-allen-talks-about-being-an-mc-henny-youngman-north-dakota-and-structuring-a-set

Truth in this piece. We all know some deluded folks who claim to never have a bad set.

Interesting take on what makes for funny, but what about the "Rule of Threes" and "Use Words with a K Sound", and other crap they teach in comedy classes? Good Tig Notaro clip in the article though.

Minneapolis has decided to name a street after Edward James Olmos. It's way easier than actually fixing the potholes.

I must have gotten these tapes on overcoming procrastination a while back.

Don't be so easily impressed by people. You know who else has a key to the executive washroom? The janitor.
