It’s luxuriating time at Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer as we take 11 weeks off to enjoy the summer. While we are on hiatus, check out our theater-mate The Imbible: The Spirited History of Drink. We enjoy sharing the theater with this lovely, talented group of artists. We’re sure you’ll enjoy seeing them perform the wild show Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm.

Did we mention that drinking is also part of the show? In other words, what a great night out. For more information about the show and tickets, visit Soho Playhouse’s website.

On Saturday night, cast (me!) and crew of Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer took a sweet selfie on stage. We wanted to commemorate the last show before vacation.

You do this job week in and week out with a crew that’s been with me for years, and you realize 11 weeks away from the show is hard to imagine. I love seeing them every week and the audience. But, it was time for a break and to enjoy summer. So, I guess while I’m hanging out by the pool and taking advantage of weekends off, I will look at this photo and remind myself just how lucky I am to be supported by such a motley crew.

Even Racehorses Need Companions

As a comedian with a long-running comedy show–Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer– and a trustworthy sidekick (Mascot Greenberg), I read this New York Times article with great interest.
 
Racehorses are known for being a wee bit temperamental. The solution for many is to have a companion animal, another animal that calms them down. For many, it’s another horse. For Strong Impact, Charlie the pig is his companion animal.

I love performing on stage by myself, but there is also something comforting about calling on my Mascot throughout the show. I get it horses. All the World’s a Stage. And sometimes we need others to help us be our best.
 
Kudos to American Pharoah for his great run at Belmont, and bringing home the first Triple Crown in nearly 40 years.

Here’s a look at the latest comedy news:
 
The summer technically starts in late June, but movie studios roll out “summer” films before Memorial Day. Variety takes a look at comedy films coming out in summer 2015.
 
There is a bit of a change-over in the heads of comedy development–the people who help determine what we will watch on TV in the coming seasons. Read more at the Hollywood Reporter.
 
Everyone is talking about Amy Schumer’s blue acceptance speech at the Glamour Awards.

Last week, I went to Citi Field, and watched Jacob deGrom pitch lights out baseball. He didn’t get the win, but he did win me over. What talent that young man possesses.
 
While at the game, a video played with left fielder Michael Cuddyer talking about his love of magic and performing magic tricks. If you’ve been to my show, you know that I employ magic in the service of comedy. As a fan of both magic and baseball, it was great to see Cuddyer talk about his love of magic. Here’s the video clip:

David-Letterman
I started my career writing for David Letterman in the early days of his 30-plus year career. What an honor.
 
All I can say is thank you for that boost. And thank you for everything you’ve done over the past three decades.
 
You will be missed.

When I won an Emmy writing for David Letterman in the early years, I didn’t know then that he would become such an iconic staple of American television. For 30+ years, Americans have turned on their TV and bid their day adieu with the Canadian, gap-toothed funnyman. Whether it was his Top 10 or Stupid Animal Tricks or the bits with his mother, he’s made us guffaw for decades. It’s hard to believe it all comes to an end later this week. We will be a country adrift without his supreme talents.
 
As such, here are some of the best comedy articles and insights about David Letterman and how he changed the landscape of late night television.
 
Everybody was touched by Norm Macdonald’s touching tribute to his comedy hero.
 

 
This Newsweek profile of the early years of David Letterman’s career is simply sublime.
 
The Mercury News lists 10 reasons to miss the show. All good ones.
 
For the geeks among us, this Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel look at the numbers/stats of the show is quite intriguing.
 
I will watch every episode of Dave’s final week and reminisce about those early years. Happy Viewing.

Two weeks is a long time in New York City where a million things can happen in a minute! Right? New Yorkers walk quickly, talk fast and rush about the city.
 
We have spent some time on the show the past two weekends as Soho Playhouse was transformed into an even more amazing space to perform. There is more room for audience!
 
So please see the show. We’re back at 6pm every Saturday now. Get your tickets here. We look forward to entertaining you.

Saying Good-Bye to Letterman

As many of you know, I won an Emmy for my writing. For David Letterman in the early days of the show. It was a dream job in many ways–creating conceptual comedy sketches and being part of late night TV history.

As Letterman prepares to sign off air after three decades entertaining the masses, there are many retrospectives on his illustrious career. Here’s Vulture’s look back at the world of Dave. Former writers–including my writing partner David Yazbek–talk about the sketches that didn’t make it on air.
 
It’s fun to reminisce about those early days, and hear what excited the show’s writers over the years.
 
Thanks Dave.
