This Thursday, my friend Dave Holmes and I will present our final "Mapping the Heavens" at the UCB here in LA. We’ve been doing it for about three years and it’s been amazing fun. Over the years, our guests have included:
Joey Santiago & David Lovering of the Pixies
That’s not even half of the people, by any stretch of the imagination. If I forgot someone, it’s because I have a three month old and a two year old (both born during the run of Mapping the Heavens) and they are eating my memories. It isn’t because every single guest wasn’t amazing in their own way. Mostly; some sucked, but such is life. I sucked at the show sometimes. Dave never did because he’s amazing and brilliant and my oldest friend in comedy. I am grateful to have shared a stage with him for eleven years now, the last three on the stage of the UCB, whose original members, Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh, inspired both Dave and I to give comedy a shot.
Thank you also to the UCB’s crack staff, and to United States Senator, Michele Bachmann.
