Like on Houston and First, two pumped-up Guidos literally in the middle of Houston, wearing matching black shirts with thin white pinstripes and khaki pants - the uniform of the asshole - one lying face-down on the hood of a taxi stopped at a red lgiht, screaming at the driver through the windshield while his partner stomps around in traffic like Donkey Kong. A passenger in a blue car one length back and one lane over took a flash photo, at which Donky Kong stomps over and starts demanding ther film very loudly.
The passenger pantomimes refusal, and Donkey kong pounds on the roof of his car - HARD - and screams, "COME OUT YOU FAGGOT!" His friend gets off the hood of the taxi, which then took off through a red light and oncoming traffic. The guy realized the cab was about to get away, so he grabbed the door handle and gets dragged two feet before letting go. The light then turned green and traffic resumed around these mooks.
Anyway, I haven't been writing stuff like that because i've been preparing for stuff like this. Please make a point of coming out if you can, I did this show before and it was really quite excellent:
MONDAY, April 30th
CBS/NYC Presents: Liam McEneaney's "Writings with Music"
at Mo Pitkin's
34 Ave. A
8:00pm * $6.00
Every musician secretly wants to be a comedian. All comedians have a secret yearning to play music. On Monday night, these worlds collide in a music/comedy experiment, as some of New York's best comedy writers read pieces, creating a rhythm that a jazz band will use to create a live, improvised musical background.
LIAM McENEANEY, who has been seen on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and VH1's "Best Week Ever." He spent two seasons as a writer for Comedy Central's "Stand-Up Nation w/ Greg Giraldo."
And featuring readings from:
ERIC DRYSDALE, a comedian/writer who won five Emmys for his work on "The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart," co-authored the NY Times bestseller "America: The Book," and is currently on the writing staff of the hit Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," on which he can regularly be seen as "Bobby, the Stage Manager."
BOB POWERS, the creator of the wildly popular website girlsarepretty.com. His book, "Happy Cruelty Day," was recently published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press, and was called "crass, witty, snarky, and unbelievably funny" by the Library Journal. Along with Todd Levin, he is the curator/host of How to Kick People, a reading show that was featured at the 2006 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
JANICE ERLBAUM, is the author of "Girlbomb, A Halfway Homeless Memoir," published by Random House/Villard. The NY Times called it a "a smart, engaging book," and the NY Post gave it four stars, and the New York Public Library called it one of 2006's "25 Books to Remember."
And featuring the music of EVAN SILVERMAN'S JAZZHOLE.
EVAN SILVERMAN has played music around the world (including two tours of England) and extensively throughout the United States, covering 40 states. He has also opened for acts like Echo and the Bunnymen, No Doubt, and Bob Dylan.
