I highlight the most inspiring parts of Congressman John Lewis acceptance speech at the Liberty Medal ceremony. Don't forget a taped broadcast of the ceremony will broadcast on Channel 6 ABC on Sunday, October 2 at 5:30 pm and Sunday, October 23 at 1:30 pm. #civilrights #blacklives #philadelphia

Nothing is more fun than interviewing comedians. I laughed so hard while interviewing Kyle Dunnigan and Tom Segura, for a preview of the Oddball Comedy Festival that comes to Philadelphia on September 11. BTW, Kyle is a writer on "Inside Schumer" and gave me the scoop on the recent rape controversy involving another show writer. #comedy #amyschumer #kyledunnigan #tomsegura

You will find lots of surprises in my review of the Barbra Streisand concert. I use Yiddish, interview a mentalist, and describe the diva as the Love Poet. #barbrastreisand  #siri #music  #concerts

Alysia Reiner, best known for her role in the Netflix hit "Orange is the New Black," and Philly girl Sarah Megan Thomas went against type and wrote a movie with female protagonists on male dominated Wall Street. Here's my review. The movie opens August 12. #OITNB #BreakingBad #netflix #WallStreet #insidertrading #hedgefunds

If you follow me, you hear it first. NBC's Kelly O'Donnell reported that Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner blocked Christie's VP bid on Friday evening. I first reported it on twitter on Monday and then wrote it up for the Huffington Post on Wednesday BEFORE Christie was eliminated as VP.

Live Nation is betting big. They opened the first of many comedy clubs on the East Coast. I recommend locals check out the new comedy club in town, Punch Line Philly. Laughter is really the best medicine. Dave Chappelle and Russell Peters performed opening week. #philadelphia #comedy

The new Bridget Jones movie never utters the A word- abortion. Come on people, it's 2016 not 1950. I criticize that in my review for the Huffington Post. #abortion #bridgetjonesbaby #birthcontrol #movies #hollywood

Here's my review of Billy Joel's concert. I have added an enticing mystery to the story. Billy Joel refers to a Philadelphia woman named Debbie as the inspiration for a song. Let's find her.
