Play warm or go home.
Right before Conan packed his bags for the Tonight Show, I booked one of the last coveted stand-up spots on his 12:30 joint. After my set, I took the couch next to T.O. Told him to "scooch over."
Please enjoy more stand-up clips below. If you're at work, I warn you, they induce fits of guffaw and/or pee.
If working in the NIKE quad at Weiden doesn't turn you into a sneaker head, it certainly rouses you to invent LEGO-like shoebox furniture that neatly houses dozens of pairs of kicks throughout your spatially challenged boudoir. Behold the NIKE Kickstack. Each drawer with custom tissue paper inside that delivers inspirational messaging.
Harry Bliss is an acclaimed illustrator and hilarious human being. I emailed him one day asking if he'd be willing to draw up some of my ideas. He said, "How did you get my email?" The rest was history. These are some of our collaborations, which have landed in publications including The New Yorker, LA Times, Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune.
The year was 2009. America was deep in recession. Lada Gaga's Poker Face was caked in make-up and QSRs were focussed on pushing their value menus. Cue Lessons in 3conomics from Wendy's. A campaign I invented, 3conomics promoted the 3 pillars of Wendy's Value Menu: taste, choice and value. Directed by Chris Smith, the campaign helped Wendy's stay ahead of the King and earned me a Golden Bagel.
From the 1999 cult classic, "Office Space," we revised Bill Lumbergh's role to illustrate how superior Atlassian's HipChat is to typical in-office email systems. When in doubt, I'd write an, "Mmmm, yeah..." and save the script every time.
I loved my time at Weiden + Kennedy. They encouraged the kind of spaced-out thinking that led my partner and I to create Nike Backyard, a line of branded swag that celebrated backyard games like tetherball, horseshoes and badminton. Nike Backyard still rallied you to Just Do It, but at the pace of a Labor Day picnic. So much fun came out of it, from the home run derby handbook to the pre-grass stained custom T's. We drew the line at Nike Beer. W+K loved it.
I could write FB posts for this rake all day.
I participate in the making of videos.
Fun Fact: I DJ'd Peter Dinklage's wedding
I also write songs, play instruments, create soundtracks, curate playlists and sing. Though not for a living.
