Improv is coming back

I have some improv shows coming back, and since my old improv theater died, it’s a bit confusing. My team “The Curfew” will be doing shows at Improv Asylum. Link to tix here (though I won’t be in shows until July, but go anyway, they’re hilarious):

Then, the distant relative of ASSCAT, RaaaatScraps will be performing at Caveat on the Lower East Side. Fun fact! There is a streaming option! I will be in shows 8/1 and 8/22.

If Deadline says it…

I got off of social media a year ago, and now I am in a Deadline article. That is a very specific type of modern pain, don’t you think? Check out the nice link about the show I am on. I play Bridget Everett’s best friend which has been my goal since roughly 2009!

Jeff’s a writer baby.

During the pandemic, I decided to enter script contests with pilots I had written. It turns out I am a finalist on one of them! Very excited to be a finalist in the Screencraft Screenwriting Fellowship for my pilot “St. Paul”.

Designing Women Monologues, Yall!

I am excited to announce that “The Designing Women Monologues” was selected as a finalist for the “Yes And Laughter Lab” which highlights shows with themes of social justice. Just last week I was told that we are one of the 10 winners who get to go on to pitch to Hollywood folks and social service agencies. It’s an exciting opportunity and feels like it combines my creative career with my previous career as a social worker. Or maybe that’s too much? I don’t know, it’s a pandemic and I needed a nice thing to happen so this is that nice thing, okay? Many thanks to the Laughter Lab and also my director Laurie Woolery.

Greif Bacon Excerpt

Here is an excerpt from my solo show “Grief Bacon” that I did at Joe’s Pub as part of my 2019-2020 residency (Miss Rona took away half my residency!). Enjoy!

Escape from Virtual Island

I was part of this very funny audible original starring Paul Rudd, Amber Ruffin, Jack McBrayer and Paula Pell. I played something I’ve never played before. A gay waiter. What can I say? I STRETCH MYSELF AS AN ARTIST!

The show is really funny and written by John Lutz with direction from Peter Grosz. You can check it out Here .

Little America on Apple TV

I have a tiny role on Apple TV’s new show, “Little America”. The show is based on true stories of immigrant experiences and I am in episode 4 “Sylvaine: The Silence” playing “Man with Cold”. What can I say? I got that post nasal drip and I’m not afraid to show it off. The show is great and it is streaming on Apple TV right now!

The Designing Women Monologues.

I have a brand new solo show coming up at Joe’s Pub on November 25th (that’s the Monday before Thanksgiving) at 9:30PM called “The Designing Women Monologues“. I was binge watching the amazing 80’s sitcom and thinking about gender and identity and big hair, and this is what came out of that. Please come see the show! You can buy tickets here!

Public Works’ Hercules!

The Public Theatre’s Public Works program is a beautiful engagement of community and theatre and I was honored to do my second show with them this summer at The Delacort Theater with Disney’s Hercules. I played Panic, and here is some footage of this beautiful production.
