I recently received a text message from Jim Gaffigan asking if I was free December 12th.
I texted back that I was free.
He texted back “Do you want to open for me at Madison Square Garden?”
I said “Wow, thank you! I would love to!”
So I will be performing at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 8pm! I am extremely excited!
In Teachers Lounge news, Hollis James and I just finished writing the half-hour pilot for television. We are hoping to shoot it in early 2016 and find a home for our series on TV.
Teachers Lounge won twice at the 2015 Cynopsis Media Awards:

- Best Guest Appearance in a Comedy Web Series (Jim Gaffigan)
Teachers Lounge is a comedy webseries co-created by myself and Hollis James.
We play the music teacher and janitor at a NYC elementary school, respectively, and each episode stars a comedian playing a faculty member.

- Judy Gold as the Gym Teacher
- Dave Attell as the School Photographer
- Michael Che as Head of the Talented & Gifted Program
- Judah Friedlander as the Computer Science Teacher

- Jim Norton as the Head of Security
- Musician Ted Leo as himself

Hollis and I are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the project. We raised $50,000 on kickstarter to cover production expenses. Your generosity helped make the series a reality.
