This was my first time in Montreal, and had an incredible time at the Just For Laughs Festival. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it. I’ve been to lots of festivals, and this one does it right in the rightest of ways. Great city, amazing comics, and very liberal social programs.
Saw the Kids In The Hall on Friday night and they were incredible. The next night I saw Kevin McDonald’s one man show, and he/it was fantastic. If and when he does it in LA (or anywhere else for that matter) I suggest you check it out. Also got to hang and see Lewis Black, Susie Essman, Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, and a bunch of other really gifted comics do their thing.
So, the WMC is coming to LA for some pitches shortly. I’ve teamed up with Sheila Jaffe and DMC on an animated film project based in part on the amazing work they’re doing with the Felix Foundation. So, I’ll be spending a good portion of my time in August in hell, AKA Los Angeles.
Looking forward to Fall as well. I will be teaching a class in comedy writing for the screen at Yale starting September. I think I’ve finally made my mother proud….
…she would’ve preferred that it was Harvard…but, she’s proud nonetheless.
That’s it for now.
