Living in Hyde Park presents unlimited inspiration for gags about academics. Here’s yet another in that vein on the Chicago Machine site.
I’ve written a few articles for The Chicago Machine. This was my first. Some might call this a “fake” or “satirical” news site. I prefer to say it’s news about events that haven’t happened yet.
I wrote this piece about home schooling the children long before the quarantine got started, but it proved to be one the most (well, probably the only) prescient things I’ve ever done. It’s on a comedy site called Defenestration. Two minutes is all I ask.
I’m happy to have another piece up on Little Old Lady Comedy. It’ll only take two minutes to read, so there’s really no reason not to do it right now, especially if you’re currently on a date.
Months ago, the line, “I’m not racist, but” – followed by something entirely mundane – started as a joke in my standup comedy routine. I couldn’t make it work right, so I dropped it. But I kept thinking about it, and eventually birthed this story. It’s on a site called Little Old Lady Comedy. It’ll take barely two minutes to read.
Last night I debuted my standup comedy routine at the Revival Theater here in Hyde Park. The video misses the first 5 or 10 seconds, but it won’t take long to pick up the plot. 4:41.
