Hello From Pyangyong! Yes. You read that right. This is Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s only democratically elected dictorial tyrant typing these words you are reading now. A few weeks ago I volunteered at the San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival undercover as a mid 40s western european looking involuntary born again male virgin with brown hair and hazel eyes. No one attending the SF Sketchfest shows at the Eureka Theater in San Francisco’s financial district knew the gentle shepherd of the North Korea people was selling them beer, wine, bottled water & peanuts, sometimes using Apple Pay to conduct the transaction.
Volunteers at SF Sketchfest sometimes get to interact with the performers. I have met, in my disguise, Adam Scott, Thomas Lennon, Michael Ian Black, Harland Williams, Laraine Newman, Kevin Pollak, Andy Daly and many more.
This year I met Erica Rhodes, a Los Angeles based stand Up comedian who performed with Dana Gould, Kate Micucci, Arden Myrin, Chris Hardwick and others in a comedic game show. After their performance I also checked out Erica’s standup act on Youtube. When I Watched her Youtube videos I thought her comedy reminds me a lot of Steven Wright’s, one of the funniest standup comedians from New England. She’s very funny. The HarryBalls.com team officially declares Erica Rhodes the next Steven Wright.
Best be advised to sit down, pour yourself a beer and take a deep breath. Because you’re about to hear something that will change your life. Forever. Are you relaxed? Good, because everything you know is wrong. Ain’t that always the way. Just when we think we have it all figured out, somebody comes along with information suggesting we’re so off the mark, we might have taken the neighbor’s car to work, slept with our cousin and brushed our teeth with kitchen cleanser.

And now for a few choice words concerning my recent demotion to the status of second- class citizen. The amazing thing is how quickly my metamorphosis into Cockroachlandia occurred. One minute, I’m walking around like an ordinary human; the next minute, I’m an insect, an unwanted stiff, a bum, a vagabond, a jamoke. About as popular as feet in a punchbowl. (more…)

Boehner Invites Netanyahu to Washington D.C. For A Mutually Beneficial Tanning Session
(Washington D.C) John Boehner, The United States tannest elected representative invited Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington D.C. to experience a mutually beneficial tanning session.
“Bibi (Netanyahu) is just looking too pasty, compared to me, these days. Doesn’t his pay check allow him to afford to store his own tanning machine in his office? I can lend him one of mine. Maybe he will let me open a tanning franchise on the Gaza strip?
I can show him how to get a tan without the lines, if he’s open minded,” stated Boehner.
