Dave Hill is one of my favorite comedians and writers and I'm excited to return to his radio show this Monday. "Three unstoppable hours of Dave playing face-melting hot rock jams, talking with extremely important guests, answering the telephone, and trying to figure out what all those knobs and buttons are for. A sincere effort to get the original members of Dokken back on speaking terms will also be made whenever possible." I'll be on at some point in there. I'll try and update this with the exact time. Regardless, you can listen to the whole thing online, on your radio, or download it afterwards. Listen here

Join us for an evening with Ivan Anderson, the man who invented Email Pro, as well as a few special guests who have contributed to it from behind the scenes. The program will include a simulcast from Hologram Island, a question-and-answer session, and a special masterclass on writing emails to strangers. If you have ever wondered what Email Pro is, this event was meant for you. Anyone planning to attend is advised to destroy as many favicons and hashtags as possible before arrival."

And since this holiday was started by improvisers, what better way than to celebrate - than with comedy! Matt Fisher (Law Firm, UCB) and Rachel Rosenthal (North Coast) are bringing together a cast of big hitting improv greats from all of the NYC theaters to give you some laughter to dip those cookies in.  Bring yourself! Bring friends! BRING COOKIES! We will also be accepting donations to be given to charity in Katie’s name.
