My good pal, NYC-based comedian Greg Barris, wears a lot of hats (and sometimes wigs). When he isn’t slinging pizza at L’Asso, the award-winning downtown restaurants he’s a partner in (best pizza in NYC, but if you don’t take my word for it, the NY Daily News feels the same way), hosting his popular musical/comedy showcase, Heart of Darkness, touring with his teen rock combo, Wigmaker’s Son (yes, Greg’s father makes bespoke wigs, beards and hairpieces), or exposing the Reptilian Agenda, well ladies, he’s getting ready for love in his life. Real, true, love.
The biggest ever Heart of Darkness is tomorrow night at the Bell House in Brooklyn with Barris, Kristin Schaal, Dave Hill and The Forgiveness topping the bill. Information and tickets here.
Below, “Real, True Love” a comedy short by Adam Epstein. Written by and starring Greg Barris.
This weekend in New York City, I have been invited by Mr. Greg Barris to participate in his latest Heart of Darkness event along with Greg Johnson and Dave Hill. Musical guests will be The Forgiveness, The Pauses and Tierney Tough.
The festivities get underway at 10pm at the Union Hall, 702 Union Street, Brooklyn.
Dangerous Minds is a compendium of oddities, pop culture treasures, high weirdness, punk rock and politics drawn from the outer reaches of pop culture. Our editorial policy, such that it is, reflects the interests, whimsies and peculiarities of the individual writers. And sometimes it doesn't. Very often the idea is just "Here's what so and so said, take a look and see what you think."
I'll repeat that: We're not necessarily endorsing everything you'll find here, we're merely saying "Here it is." We think human beings are very strange and often totally hilarious. We enjoy weird and inexplicable things very much. We believe things have to change and change swiftly. It's got to be about the common good or it's no good at all. We like to get suggestions of fun/serious things from our good-looking, high IQ readers. We are your favorite distraction.
