Dispatches from the Head

“A Day in the Life” premieres on Hulu.



How’s it going, people-

Let me say that if you live anywhere near Grand Rapids, Michigan you should come out to the live WTF at Gilda’s Laugh Fest on the 17th and/or my standup show on the 15th. I’m feeling they will both be good. Come down if you can. If you are in 500 mile radius of Bloomington, Indiana and you want to make the trip I will be at The Comedy Attic March 23rd and 24th. Swing by.

I am exhausted. I’m on a plane as I write this heading to SXSW for a day and then on to NYC to tape the John Oliver NYC Standup Show or whatever it is called. Then back to LA on Tuesday. Insane schedule. Trying not to freak out.

I just left Minneapolis. The shows at Acme Comedy Club were amazing. I hadn’t been there in 12 years. I was banned. I always thought was for a weekend that involved drugs, drinking, a condo and an obese woman, but no. It was because the club owner thought I was a dick. I had to find that out by reading a piece in the local paper. All these years I had mythologized that weekend in my mind as the series of events that got me thrown out but it had nothing to so with it. Well, I guess I’m not a dick anymore. At the very least I am a lot less of dick. It was great to be back at the club. It is one of the best in the country. All five shows sold out and the people that came out were just great. I want to thank all of you.

This week is exciting. On Monday, I’ll be posting an episode with Mindy Kaling from the office. Also on Monday, Morgan Spurlock’s "A Day in the Life" is premiering on Hulu. It is a series of short documentary profiles. I am the premiere episode and in that episode there is footage of me interviewing Mindy Kaling. So, get your technology synched up and check them both out. I like what Morgan’s crew did. Documentary crews can be intrusive and annoying but they were great. I thought they did an amazing job. Jessica appears in the piece as just a voice. She wasn’t expecting so many people to show up at the house and she was a bit hungover so she doesn’t come out of the bedroom. It is a highlight of the doc. There are appearances from Boomer and the crazy stray as well. I think it is an honest portal into my life. Enjoy it. I did and I don’t generally like that much me.

On Thursday, the amazingly funny Fred Willard is on the show. I really had no idea about the slice of sketch comedy history he laid on me. It was great to talk to him.

Okay, see you soon.


Love,
Maron
