Dave Park Tests Out The CitySourced App for Brain Food Daily

Filed under: ,

Here’s our smartly-blazered Dave Park with another installment of Brain Food Daily. In this episode, Dave hops in a van with the creators of CitySourced – an app for crowd-sourced urban improvement. I downloaded the app and have been reporting my neighbor for her shitty taste in music for a week now (Shania Twain, really?), but so far NO RESPONSE from the city. THANKS OBAMA.

Dave Park on Raw Milk and Shark Fin Soup for Brain Food Daily

Filed under: ,

Here’s our loveably squeezable Dave Park talking to Brain Food Daily Food Editor Willy Blackmore about the cruelty of raw milk and the benefits of shark fin soup. Or maybe the other way around. I dunno. I’m drunk. Don’t you judge me.

Zabeth Russell's Final Trophy Wife Show - Wed. Jun 13 @ 9:30pm

Filed under: ,

Zabeth Russell

In early 2005, a spunky young girl moved across the country to pursue her comedy dreams in the big city. She soon fell in with a rag-tag group of comedy misfits and performed live every week for adoring audiences who quickly became enamored by her many endearing, hilarious characters and charmed by her quick wit. Seven years later, she's leaving her beloved ensemble for bigger and better opportunities in television and film.

That spunky young girl was Kristen Wiig. The city was NYC. The show as SNL.

But also? Zabeth Russell. Los Angeles. And Trophy Wife.

Join us next Wednesday, June 13th at 9:30pm at iOWest as we bid a fond farewell to Trophy Wife founding member Zabeth Russell. Like Wiig's final SNL show, it's sure to be a night of wonderful memories, big laughs, and tearful goodbyes.

She's like a rainbow.

Not Improv

Filed under: ,

Comic Natasha Leggero tweeted one of my favorite quotes about comedy: “Standup comics did not get enough love from at least one parent. Funny people who were thoroughly loved by their parents become improvisers.”

It’s true. Because improv is group work you can’t “need” all the time – you have to give and you have to trust and you have to share. Stand-up is deliciously solo – you take all the risks and then (if there are any) you reap all the rewards.

I tried my hand and this is a slice of my first stand-up set. I had a blast. And I plan to continue. Enjoy!
