New project: Garden State Variety

You may have noticed, I've been absent from this blog for a while now. That's because I'm in the process of rounding up some very talented actors and comedians from around New Jersey and am producing a show tentatively called "Garden State Variety." You can like us on Facebook by clicking this link. In Lambertville, Green Birdie Studios, has graciously agreed to host us and we'll be taping two pilot episodes "live" with an audience in mid-May.

The goal is to get sponsors for the show and if that happens: We do a live show every other Friday night. It's been my dream to do something like this since I first watched Uncle Floyd and the Channel 9 Howard Stern shows.

The first pilot episode will be about "stereotypes" where we will tackle many of the NJ reality TV shows. One bit was just filmed in Hoboken on a beautiful Friday evening while people on the street played a game on camera.

Then, we will examine "borders" in pilot two, which readers of this blog will most definitely appreciate. We filmed our first skit already on this and it can be found on my youtube channel:
