Comedy Central’s “7 Minutes in Purgatory”!
19th
Jul


One of my favorite comics Ian Ambramson has a great standup show called 7 Minutes in Purgatory where the comedians are stuck in a soundproof booth (They can’t even see the audience! It’s loco!) and have to perform their act. A bunch of acts were taped for Comedy Central and I was lucky/unlucky enough to be one of them. It was a super blast even though my hair wasn’t great. Anyway, you can watch the whole thing above, bro. I hope you enjoy it so much.

Love,
Dave Hill

Anyway, you can check it out here. And if, God forbid, you haven’t bought my book yet, you can do that right here. I hope you enjoy it so much.

Video of My Reading/Signing/Talking at Loganberry Books in Cleveland
5th
Jun


A couple weeks ago, I got on a plane all by myself and flew to Cleveland to do an event for my new book at Loganberry Books, the best damn book store in town. Nick Dominic, a fine young man, caught the whole thing on his phone and now you can experience the magic for yourself. Cancel everything and watch it now if you would like to see a man of action in action.

I was recently in Los Angeles (Home of the Stars), and while I was there I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Chewin’ It podcast with Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan. We talked about prison, Van Halen, toilet clogging, and several other topics of great importance, including, yes, my new book. You can and should listen to the whole thing right here. I hope you enjoy it so much.

Michael Ian Black Tells It Like It Is
21st

Here’s something cool- the great Michael Ian Black recently talked to Business Insider about comedy and stuff and they asked him to say who he thinks are four of the best comedians today. And get this- he named me! And I didn’t even have to give him any cash! He also named Ron Funches, Jen Kirkman, and Kumail Nanjiani- three great comedians that I am honored to be mentioned with. You can read the whole thing right here. Okay, I am realizing this is a pretty shameless post so I should probably stop typing. Anyway, just wanted you to know what’s keeping me off the ledge today. Also, Michael has a new special called Michael Ian Black: Noted Expert on the Epix network now and if you don’t go watch it you are a damn fool!

Recently, my dear friend Janeane Garofalo and I had a delightful phone conversation and now you can read exactly what we chatted about in Vulture‘s “Comics Talk to Comics” series. As you can probably imagine, it was a real emotional rollercoaster ride to be a part of and, I can only imagine, to read as well. I hope you enjoy it so much. You can read it right here.
