Miserable Love Stories drops into stores tomorrow – February 4th – just in time for Valentine’s Day! (Yes, it was rescheduled from its original January release date.) We already had one great event at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati a couple weeks ago. And we have a TON of events coming up soon in February, which you should absolutely come to – especially if you live in New Jersey!
Saturday, February 8, 2-4p – Meet and Greet and book signing at incredibly fabulous The Town Bookstore in Westfield, NJ. Stop by and share your most awful Valentine’s Day story, meet the author and get a book signed!
Wednesday, February 12, 7-8p – Reading and book signing at Watchung Booksellers in Montclair, NJ. This is a full-on reading – that means we read some pieces from the book – and book signing! Featuring laughs, tears, and possibly awkward audience participation! No doubt, there’ll probably be a blizzard that day.
And then – then! – it’s theater time!
Fri-Sat, February 14-15 – Miserable Love Stories! at the Rising Curtain Theatre in Bloomfield, NJ. (Three performances only! Fri at 8p; Sat at 6 and 8p) Director Ted Wrigley has done a phenomenal job with a truly brilliant cast of some of the funniest actors in NJ. (We’re talking deep, deep improv and stand-up experience for most of the cast.) So, it’s going to be a highly memorable evening. Please note – this is a small black box theatre (and a large cast) and seats are already selling out . If you’re interested in this show, please contact the theater asap! I’ll also be signing books at this event, too.

Yes, the d.w. eye Reunion is actually happening! It’s going to be Friday, June 23, 2017 at the 20th Century Theater in Cincinnati. For anyone who’s read Plrknib, this will essentially be the book coming to life before your very eyes (except everyone is significantly older). Comedians appearing in the book who are scheduled to perform include Drew Hastings, Chili Challis, Rico Bruce Wade, Cap & Johnny, and myself. (And this will be the first stand-up I’ve performed in Cinti in over 30 years! Oy.) We’re joined by a ton of great comics who performed at the eye shortly after the period that’s covered in the book, including Michael Flannery, Steve Caminiti, Jim Gilliece, and Mark Kline. And we expect to be joined by even more eye alumni. (If you’re reading this and you ever performed at the eye, please contact me or Michael Flannery.) Even Don Merriss, the original owner of the eye, will be on hand!
Flannery and I have been assembling this event for a couple months now. If you’re in the area – this is going to be much more than a “night at a comedy club.” We’re turning this into an event with a ton of surprises in store.
Also the night before the show, Thursday 6/22, we’ll be doing a signing of Plrknib at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Pavilion.
For more info, please visit our new d.w. eye site. You can also let us know you’re coming by signing up at our Facebook event page.
More updates as we get them!
So, we’ve got our first dates lined up for 2017! All appearances include signings (and occasionally free copies!) of Plrknib.
Sunday, February 19 at 7p – I’ll be appearing at Scotty’s Comedy Cove in Springfield, NJ. This is our first big Plrknib show of the year, and we’ll have free signed copies of the book! Click here to make your reservations early!
Saturday, February 25 at 8p – I’m hosting the Comedy Night fundraiser at Temple Sholom in Scotch Plains, NJ. We’ll have signed copies of the book for sale at this event with all profits donated to the temple. Click here for more information and to make reservations.
Both shows will be great and include a ton of brilliant comics from the NY/NJ area. Come join us!
