I broke the rules. I’m making one big exception. Don’t get mad.
I’m making bread pudding. I’m sorry. It’s not pie. I know. Stop crying. Let me explain.
I had a brunch for gay comics. Pop quiz. What’s the funnest part of cooking a brunch for 9 gay comics? Spending 12 hours the day before prepping! You have to clean your entire house and pre-cook most of the food. Look how clean my fridge is!
BECAUSE THEY’RE GAY! They will judge you.
They’re really good at judging things. Look at Michael Kors. Yikes. Stop looking. He’s orange.
I made eggs, braised parsnips with spinach, oven roasted potatoes. quiche, and biscuits and sausage gravy.
A bunch of really talented people came over for brunch. John Milhiser showed us a video for his new comedy short The 40 Year Old 20 Year Old. Here’s an old episode from Xmas: http://www.ucbcomedy.com/videos/play/7585/the-40-year-old-20-year-old-ep1-christmas
Apparently there’s some sort of fringe festival there?
I never heard of it.
Anyway. Ben was on New York Magazine’s Approval Matrix this past week. This is a big accomplishment because The Approval Matrix is usually reserved for the coming and goings of Meryl Streep.
I guess Meryl was busy this week, in her Manhattan townhouse with her two daughters, putting on Chekov plays and playing music with her son.
That’s ACTUALLY what she claims to do in her free time – putting on plays with her daughters. At least, that’s what she does when the reporter from The New Yorker comes over.
ANYWAY. Meryl couldn’t make brunch. But another crazy lady showed up:
Pamela Murphy has an amazing show about her titty cancer up at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater right now. It’s playing on Friday at 7:30 with Love Can Suck a Dick – Leslie Meisel’s one woman show.
But why did Pam cause a commotion at my brunch by screaming about her show? Who cares. Everyone needs to see this show. It was voted Time Out New York’s best solo show of 2010, and if she gets her own TV show out of it, I’ll probably get a job. In the 4th season. Right before they cancel it.
A bunch of other talented comics showed up. Jeffrey Marx was there, as well as Matt Pavlovich from UCB’s Thunder Gulch. Also, other really funny, talented people were there. It was fun.
But I was too tired to make a pie afterward!!! Plus I had all these leftover biscuits. So I made pumpkin bread pudding!!! Sue me!!!
Or, you know what? Just enjoy the suspension of the rules for one day. Eat the pumpkin bread pudding, jerks.
