I'm a Second Rounder at the Austin Film Festival!

I’m proud and excited to announced that my Superstore spec script, “Self-Checkout,” is a second rounder at the 2018 Austin Film Festival!

When Cloud 9 installs new self-checkout machines the crew worries that computers are coming for their jobs.

Superstore is my favorite show on TV so I feel very honored. I’ll be attending the conference and passing out the brand new business cards that I ordered literally seconds before posting this blog.

(I’d offer you a card but I’m realizing now that they might not even get here in time for AFF. Oops!)

Come see my monthly show, Astronaut Training!

            There was a time when space travel united the world.

Let’s bring that back...

in the form of a highly-competitive and divisive game show!

This summer I started hosting an incredibly fun show called Astronaut Training! It’s a 90’s Nickelodeon style game show where I put REAL scientists and REAL comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training (read: incredibly silly games that no one can really win).

Astronaut Training is part-Netflix’s Nailed It,

part-VERY-small-scale American Ninja Warrior.

I play a parody of Elon Musk and I’m joined by my cohost and scientific advisor Loren Grush (science reporter at The Verge).

Our next show is Tuesday, October 16th at 9pm at Caveat. You can buy tickets for the October show here. Beginning in 2019 we will on the first Saturday of every month at 7pm!

Only one flight crew can emerge.

Come witness who will become the next great American heroes!

I'm a finalist in NYTVF and truTV's Comedy Breakout Initiative!

I’m catching up on posting about the last few months now, so before you read this post please pretend it’s June 2018. School’s out and summer is just beginning — life is good!

I’m so excited to announce that my project How to Success! was a finalist in this year’s Comedy Breakout Initiative from the New York Television Festival and truTV!

For the second year, truTV partnered with the NYTVF to find the next generation of distinct comedic voices to create unscripted comedy-based formats.

You might be thinking, isn’t How to Success your book? And to that I’d think back, yes, it is! Wouldn’t you want to see H2S! as a TV show? I’m not 100% sure what that show would actually be yet, but now I’m gonna figure it out.

You can watch the trailers I submitted below!

How to Success! is available now!

I am so excited to announce that my first book, How to Success! A Writer's Guide to Fame and Fortune, is available now!!

 I can't legally promise this, but I believe this book is the only thing standing between you and fame.

Here's how you can get a copy:

Besides the Chronicle Books page, or your local bookstore, you have a few options:

But no matter where you order from, be sure to leave a review online!

Still not convinced? Give my book trailers a watch!

These three videos were directed by Paul Penczner (who directed Life, After!) with help from Erica Tachoir and the same post-production team that helped make our web series great!

Life, After Table Read

This week Erica and I had a table reading for our online series, Life, After!

We were able to assemble a real dream team, and the reading went better than either of us imagined. It was a really great night.

I think my heart swelled three sizes.

Now for the revisions and the fundrasing... 

Let's do this!
