Great Shows in LA!

Hey Friends,

If you're in LA or know friends in LA, I'll be doing a couple of pretty awesome shows out there.

First, on Sunday August 30th, I'm doing a show with Ali Wong and some other great comic friends in Santa Monica.



Then, I'm hosting COMEDY DEATH-RAY at UCB Theatre on Tuesday, September 1st. Oh hell yes.

Get that little boy! He'll kill us all!!

This is a cellphone photo I took of a section of flight safety instructions in 2007. (I can't remember the airline). It depicts certain items which are banned during flight and, even by 2007 standards, are clearly outdated.


NO WALKMEN!

NO POCKET RADIOS!

NO OVERSIZED CELLPHONES!

And yes, that's right:

NO REMOTE CONTROL CARS!

What??!!

Yes, this means that at some point in the history of air travel, a child (presumably, hopefully) took out a remote control car and started playing with it...creating enough of an incident that remote control cars were added to the list of items banned during flight.

Oh, how I wish I could hear a potential black box recording or read a flight log of that incident.

(As the plane starts to shake.)

Pilot: I don't know what's interfering with our signal, but please turn it off!! Turn it off!!

Passenger: It's that car. Stop it!!

Flight Attendant: Everyone stop trying to tackle the car! The boy. Get that little boy! He'll kill us all!!
