Watch “Crashing: Official Trailer (HBO)” on YouTube

20 Feb

MY NEW FAVORITE SERIES even though I’ve only seen one episode, the debut, last night. No surprise I’m already overboard without a life raft about it as the show is about two of my favorite things: relationship struggles and stand-up comedy.


Holmes brings an akward and painful humility to his character while remaining, at the core, funny. The struggles are real – and humorous.

Back in the day, as the kids sometimes say, I was a big pro wrestling fan – mid to late 70’s and this will be blogged about at some point – and I will not miss this documentary of the biggest wrestling star of them all.

New Bill Burr Special on Netflix

1 Feb

THE ACERBIC, AWESOME and very funny comedian Bill Burr has a new Netflix special that just premiered last night, “Walk Your Way Out.” Check out the trailer below. Also worth checking out is this interview with Burr at The Daily Dot.

 

Burr describes himself as a 25-year overnight success. “I had to do it the way most of my friends had to do it,” he says. “We have to go out on the road for 20 years and just keep killin’ and killin’ and killin’ until hopefully word of mouth will get you there. Then you get a break here, a break there.”

I love that kind of dedication. The hungry and good stand-up comedians are like your developing artists – constantly on the road, building a reputation, word of mouth growing, thanks to great material and killing it on stage.
