I wrote two episodes the new Flintstones reboot, “Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs!” It’s coming to Boomerang next year. Here’s the description from Deadline:
Warner Bros. Animation takes you beyond Bedrock to The Crags, a vast land that is as dangerous and wild as the dinosaurs that inhabit it.
Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble are two best friends, growing up in the prehistoric time when dinosaurs and giant beasts still walked the earth. But as exciting as that sounds, they live in peaceful, quiet old Bedrock, a modern domestic civilization similar to our own (but with stone cars that run on leg-power). That’s why whenever they get the chance, Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm and Dino head to the open wilderness, helping new friends, fighting new enemies and learning about life through their endless crazy adventures. Back in Bedrock, Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty still enjoy all the familiar quirks and trappings of life as a modern Stone Age family not knowing all the trouble (and fun!) their kids are getting themselves into.
I had a ton of fun writing for it and I got to make up new dinosaurs. Check it out in 2019!
I am doing an improv show where I am one of the 76 characters in Avengers: Infinity War. For real, there will be 76 people onstage. Now I have to figure out how to paint myself green to play Gamora without getting it all over my car. Maybe I shouldn’t do it my my car. Anyway, come!
I’m writing and performing in this show at The Pack Theater. My friend Haley Mancini is hosting and the entire show takes place in the a void in space that somehow contains a desk and a late night talk show. It’s free! Come on by!

Special Guest Eric Bauza!

I started off 2018 by guesting on Becky Feldman’s romance novel podcast Too Stupid to Live. We discuss Grace Callaway’s “Her Husband’s Harlot.” Highlights: the word “ranunculus,” steamy boxing ring sex, someone gets hit in the head with a copy of Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” and the characters include not one but TWO Miss Havishams. Very NSFW!
My book is now in the library at American National University in Kentucky. It’s a required resource for IT students, as an example of how society reacts to technology. I am honored. They did a cool little display and everything. I am also really amused that I am on the Windows shelf. This is basically the best thing ever.
Rare trip up to the SF Bay Area this weekend for Chris Hardwick’s Id10T Festival. I’ll be signing copies of Restart Me Up and manning the booth with The Devastator. We are in Exhibitor Village, Booth 605, next to Laser Tag, for your convenience. Bay Area friends, stop on by, watch a ton of comedy and music and look at some cool new books!
June 24-25 – 11am-midnight ( we will be there noon -8, both days)
