‘Young Southpaw serves up something strange with Bat Soup Comedy’. Great piece about me on Vanyaland!

“I realized I was loving every second of the insane human tornado that was the second edition of the Bat Soup comedy series. Organized and emceed by local surrealist comedian Young Southpaw, the lineup and its jostling forces—braggadocio and vulnerability, irony and candor, buoyancy and cynicism—attracted and repelled, and sure enough, I was magnetized.” – excellent review of my BAT SOUP II comedy night at The State House in New Haven, CT by Dan Mims in Daily Nutmeg. Mr. Mims really captured what I’m trying to do with both Young Southpaw and BAT SOUP.

Second BAT SOUP Comedy Night, y’all! The first was such a success we’re doing another one. Come down! It’s gonna be fun!

First Young Southpaw Presents…night, y’all! I’ve got some very funny comedians on the bill. And joining us is Owen McMahon, one of my fave new musical discoveries this year, whose songs sum up perfectly to me what it’s like to hail from CT. 

Dekalaug 2: The Second Ten Podcasts is out now and features some of my favourite Southpaw material – ‘Jimmy Page’s Water Park’, ‘Nietzsche, Time-Traveling Wu Tang Fan’, and ‘Lions’. 

Come check out the live show! All this absurdity distilled down to its essence.

Busy busy busy with Young Southpaw. Great review of the podcast from

“From the existential thread that ties Jean-Paul Sartre to Jon Bon Jovi, to the skinny on what’s floating in TLC’s ‘Waterfalls’, and the possibility that Al Pacino is coaching boxing kangaroos in space, wise-fool Southpaw’s ramblings lead listeners on a surreal journey through doors they didn’t even know existed, into a highly original, deeply funny land of pop culture confusion.”

The first ten podcasts have been collected as Dekalaug 1: The First Ten Podcasts . Available at Bandcamp in exchange for an email for the mailing list, or just sign up for that here. 

Performing in NYC a lot. Events are listed at the Young Southpaw Facebook page

I did a Young Southpaw interview with the Pynchon In Public Podcast, which is one of my favourite things Southpaw has done. 

Thanks for listening! Come on out to a show soon!
