Icing: RED BALLS – Free Laughs One Hit at a Time

Icing: RED BALLS – Free Laughs One Hit at a Time

That’s right; we said free! As superficial and cosmetic as the “biz” can be, but Some Dudes are trying to change it. Their vessel – RED BALLS, a film inspired by underground dodgeball leagues (yes, they exist!). Don’t worry, this one is fictitious. But, the real indie-ness of this movie is the cost- It’s now […]

Layers: An Evening of Quality…and Notions!

Calling all those who thirst for seemingly useless, but actually useful knowledge! And, they all apparently got the memo. The Virgil was packed (NO three feet of personal space here!) to watch Jaqueline Novak and friends on an October evening. This gothy, classy grotto without water was hot and sticky like a Deep South summer […]

Layers: ‘Neil Hamburger LIVE’ Yields Lots of Gourmet Comedic Cheese

Where do I even start on this one? My night at The Satellite Theater began with walking down Silver Lake Blvd., GPS in hand, then looking up to see it was the last thing I needed to find Neil Hamburger Live. With my earbuds blaring something I’m probably ashamed to say I even listen to, […]

Layers: SURPRISE Comedy Yields An UnSurprisingly Good Time

Let’s face it; L.A.’s comedy scene can be one-in-the-same sometimes – You get the Facebook invite. You might get a comp. And, you stand in line at a theater, until showtime, where you sit stiffly until your friend goes on stage. Then, you try to remember a “favorite joke” from the show, to prove you […]

And, she’s making a good case, with a web series that packs the anti-misogynistic punch. Puchkoff and co-star Madeline Nehlin cut the crap […]
