Heeeeeyyyy, Peter, what’s haaappening?
I’ll tell you what’s happening, Lumberg! Lots! Let’s go over it in chronological order.
First, on November 10th, I’ll be in the finals of So You Think You’re Funny at the Clarion Inn in College Park. It’ll be at 8:30 PM, and I could win $500. Also, it would prove that I think I’m funny, I think.
Then, I’ll be in Magooby’s Joke House’s New Comedian of the Year competition! Exciting. It’s on November 21st. Details are here: http://magoobys.com/show.cfm?id=198695
Finally, I’ll be performing in my FIRST-EVER comedy festival, the North Carolina Comedy Arts fest. Schedules haven’t been announced yet, but when they are, they’ll be here: http://www.nccomedyarts.com/
Crazy, right? I’m obviously super-duper excited and will be hitting up various open mics to practice for all this exciting stuff. Hope to see you there!

Lots o’ Comedy!
Hey “folks,” I’ve been doing two shows a week this summer, really upping the amount of stage time I’m getting [y’know, for self-improvement]. And it’s paying off— I got first place and $100 in the semi-finals of the So You Think You Are Funny contest, and then placed 1st at Magooby’s New Talent showcase, earning a paid gig at the club. Basically, I’ve been doing comedy for a while now, but not very seriously; it’s time to really increase the amount I do and start getting actual gigs. If you haven’t seen me in a while, I have gotten better! I have. I’ll have a video soon.

Did you know I am still, technically, a stand up comedian? Seriously. It says so on my business card. [I do not have a business card.] As if to prove I am still in this comedy game, I did two shows recently— Drink ‘Til We’re Funny in Timonium and Chucklestorm in Baltimore. Both were a lot of fun, and Chucklestorm is one of my favorite shows to do, because the people there are patient and let you “experiment” [read: screw up a little] and I think I’m getting closer to developing an actual persona onstage beyond “guy yelling jokes at you.”
Anyway, in case you’re interested in seeing me develop this new persona, I’m performing at RFD on the 26th. UMD will have just restarted classes so if you’re on campus, let me know, and we can Metropool. I’m not sure what the deal exactly with RFD is… you may have to be over 21 to get in. Maybe not.
Anyway, here’s a video of me, doing old jokes and not using the persona I claim to be developing.

New Semester, More Comedy?
A new semester is upon us, and with it, comes the opportunity to do more comedy. Well, maybe. I’m not sure. Pretty much every show I’m about to list should be followed by a “well, hopefully…”
On October 4th, UMD is having a student stand up competition. The prizes seem pretty nebulous, but I’ve heard that there will perhaps be front row seats to the upcoming Aziz Ansari show and maybe even the opportunity to meet him and kiss his ass for 1 minute. This is exciting. I will hopefully be a part of it.
In addition, Off the Wall, the loose stand up collective I’m a part of, is having a show at some point during October. When? Uh, good question. We’ll get back to you on that one.
Not only that, but I’d like to do more local rooms. I hear this Riot Act place is pretty good, but the Open Mics are apparently booked solid for a long time. Other rooms? Well, it depends on whether a good friend or comedian will, uh, “carpool” with me there. However, there will be only one car in the pool, and one driver.
I will see you in the future, doing comedy. Well, hopefully…

General News- July, 2011
Well, it’s July. I’ve been working on some new material, but haven’t been able to do a lot of shows recently. I’m doing Magoobys on the 28th of this month, though, and I should test out some of that new material, if you’re interested. Hopefully, I can get a good, high quality video there of me, finally, to replace the one I have now with my friend going “OH SHIT I COVERED UP THE MIC.”
Anyway, stay tuned, people. Starting by the end of the month, I’m gonna start doing some [more] comedy.
