Happy New Year people! I hope you had a happy, healthy and rewarding holiday season, depending upon whichever (or none-ever) of the holidays you celebrated. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you out there who are on this list and who are reading this right now. Many of you have been down with me for years and, therefore, you know how big 2012 was for me and my family. Well now I'm back at work, in my office at Totally Biased where we are getting ready to kick off our next cycle of shows, starting Thursday, Jan 17th at our new awesome time of 11pm on FX. It's seems crazy that only a few months ago in August, we started with just six episodes, then got seven, and now we have 13 more. 2012 was a life and career changing year for me. Here are some end of the year highlights.
CONAN - I GOT TO BE ON CONAN OBRIEN! And the best part was I didn't have to go on as a stand up. I got to sit in between Conan and Andy like an adult!
And on the same episode of Conan was Modern Family's hilarious Ty Burrell. I love that show and me and my wife were trying to figure out an appropriate way to ask him for a photo. Imagine my surprise when he poked his head in to my dressing room to tell me that he his a fan of Totally Biased. He even told me that he had sweet potato pie for the first time because of a segment we did. WOW! At that point we couldn't NOT ask for a picture. In fact my daughter insisted on it.
FRESH AIR ON NPR - Terry Gross, host of Fresh Air, named me one of her favorite interviews of 2012. I'm completely shocked. I was so nervous during this interview, so I am really glad people dug it. If you ahven't already, you can listen to it HERE.
THE NEW YORKER - I got my picture in the New Yorker. Kind of... They did a very thoughtful REVIEW of Totally Biased and other alternative comedians including the awesome Maria Bamford. And I got a New Yorker cartoon.
Again, I am grateful to all of you for your support through all of this. 2012 was epic and I hope me and the crew can continue to keep it interesting and funny over here.
