La Fin de Semana!

April 16, 2009 at 11:12 am (my life) (, , , , , , )

There are so many things for you to do this weekend.  SO MANY.

Let’s start with the reason one of my oldest BFFs, Amber, is in town this weekend- to go see the Dead Milkmen at the Warsaw!  How ridiculous did I feel that an Atlanta girl had the scoop on shows in Brooklyn?  But she’s always been cooler than me.

See?

But now onto the self promotion.

First, on Saturday night at midnight, is another rip-roarin’ episode of Game Bros. LIVE! with Thomas and Kumail!  This show is going to be awesome as usual, so come on down to the UCB this Saturday at midnight!!  Sign up for tix here.

eternal_sunshine2Then on Sunday, when you’re feeling introspective, you should come on down to Word Bookstore on Franklin St in Brooklyn for Bad Dating Habits I Learned from the Movies, the workshop that I’ll be doing with my girl Angela and whoever else wants to come out and play with us!  We’ll talk about all the rules of dating that rom-coms taught us, and how they end up making us more miserable than listening to the Titanic theme.  Go here to find out more details, and email brooklynlovesmarts@gmail.com to RSVP.

In between all that fun you’re having, follow me on Twitter!  I don’t even know what that means!  http://www.twitter.com/thegynomite

Game Bros. Live!!!

October 3, 2008 at 8:16 am (Comedy, my life) (, , , , , , )

You know the drill! This Saturday night at midnight, come and join Kumail and Thomas, the Game Bros, for Game Bros Live!

Game Bros. Live! is a monthly show that takes a comedian’s look at video games and current industry news. Knowledgeable enough to satisfy the nerds yet charming enough to entertain the rest of the populace (ie: girls), Kumail and Thomas invite you on an informative and whimsical jaunt through video game land. New special guests each month, reviews, previews, discussions, competitions and audience prizes!!!

There will be a segment on naughty parts of games that were burned into our memories as children, and the guests this month are Arj Barker (Flight of the Conchords) and Rob Cantrell (Marijuanalogues)!

Make a reservation here!

Laborious days

Hi all!  Sorry for the lack of posting, Kumail and I have been out of town in Harvard Massachusetts at a wedding on a farm overlooking tons of Massachusetts hillsides.  We went, we ate fine cheese, we hung out, we danced our faces off, and we came home.  Next mission:  to buy a watermelon for a small BBQ.

Game Bros Live! went well on Saturday, and guess who they’re going to try to get for their next guest?!?!

Full disclaimer:  neither Zac Efron nor Master Chief will be on the next show, I just thought this picture was hilarious.  Party on guys!
