I'll be a guest at the awesome convention Dragon Con! I have a full schedule of events including a stand-up show, improv shows, quiz shows, a live recording of the Obsessed podcast and more.

Full schedule here:

Clarke Wolfe, entertainment host/journalist and actor, joins Joseph Scrimshaw for a gothic chat about the TV show, Penny Dreadful. Thrill to such topics as emo monsters, psychological horror, boobs on Showtime, and build-your-own-frankenstein-monster. Thanks, as always, to Molly Lewis for our theme

Jackie Kashian, brilliant comedian and host of The Dork Forest podcast, joins host Joseph Scrimshaw for a saucy discussion of crappy romance novels.

News! I have a new comedy EP! It's called REBEL SCUM! The album asks the important questions about ‪#StarWars‬ and our modern world: Is Emperor Palpatine more honest than real life politicians? Would Obi-Wan Kenobi be an internet troll? Is Luke Skywalker secretly Canadian? Official release on Tuesday, September 1st, but you can pre-order right now and get a sample track!

Today I'm going to relax the way Batman would: Intensely, obsessively, with no room for error. There are no problems with this plan.

Today is H.P. Lovecraft's birthday. I plan to celebrate by calling things "unspeakable" and then speaking about them for a very long time.

I have figured out a solution to all of our entertainment worries: True Detective Season Three should be a Fantastic Four reboot.

I feel like we're close, as a culture, to referring to children as "cool DNA mash-ups."
