About me:I'm a writer and a comedian and sometimes I like to reverse the order of those two things. I've appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and at the 2006 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
I've also cornered the market in web sites. By 2008, I anticipate I'll own all the web sites on the Internet, but for now there's:
tremble.com - for writing or, if you prefer, blogging. (I wish you didn't prefer that)
toddlevin.com - for published writing, a full performance calendar, pictures and video clips
How to Kick People - this is a monthly comedy reading series based in NYC that I co-produce and co-host with a very funny gentleman named Bob Powers. You're invited to attend.
