Albuquerque Film with Stand Up!

The Albuquerque Film Festival is here, and thanks to Jess Osbourne we now have stand up at the fest!  Make sure to check out the festival's website for a full list of events.  I'm super stoked to be a guest on the Comedy Film Nerds podcast on Friday!   I get to do the PodCast with Hector Jimenez (Nacho's tag team parter in Nacho Libre).  You can come check out the live recording for the podcast at Hotel Andaluz, Friday at 5:00pm...for FREE!  Immidiately following the PodCast will be a free stand up show.  I'm going to be running back and forth, because I'm scheduled to open the Music Videos & Webseries event at The KiMo at 6:00.  You'll also want to make sure to wake up early on Saturday and get to The Guild to see my buddies Matt Peterson and Marc Shuter at 10:00am in The Bigfoot Election.

This weekend's your chance to check out the hottest Albuquerque comedians and filmmakers, together at last!

Help Save THE GREEN ROOM on Showtime....

The Green Room with Paul Provenza needs us!!  A bunch of us have gotten drunk and "hung out" with these guys at my place.  If you haven't seen the show and you're a comedian or fan of comedy, you gotta check it out on Showtime.  It's one of the best things on TV, and Showtime is thinking about canceling it.  A lot of what networks decide what they keep is based on their message board discussions and traffic.  SO, if you can all hit up The Green Room's message board on Showtime's website and say a few words, you will have an impact and hopefully we'll get more seasons of the show.  Who knows, one of Abq's comics may be on it some day...


Go HERE to have your impact on keeping this awesome show around!



No more talkin' 'bout it, her' it iz!


Bullet Proof

Just finished writing a new rap called Bullet Proof.  It's about how I'm Bullet Proof.  Keep checking the Rusta Rhymes page or come to a show to see it debuted soon, but until then here's a sneak peak....


I got Bullet Proof gloves
And Bullet Proof socks
I wear a Bullet Proof rubber
On my Bullet Proof cock

I got a Bullet Proof shirt
With a Bullet Proof zia
And when I eat Garcia's
It's Bullet Proof sopapillas

A Bullet Proof house
With my Bullet Proof parents
And the window's Bullet Proof
But I guess that's apparent

I ride to work
On my Bullet Proof bike
And when I play with little kids
We fly Bullet Proof kites
