I wrote a review of MOCA’s 2014 performance series Step and Repeat for the web edition of X-tra. The review talks about the current fascination with comedy in the art world, and how stand-up comedy plays out in the museum and fine art context. Discussed in the essay are performances by Neil Hamburger, Kate Berlant and Dynasty Handbag. You can read it here. (photo by Josh White, courtesy of MOCA Los Angeles)
My band from the early aughts, The Tokeleys, is featured as the intro and outro music on The Marc and Tom Show. The Marc and Tom show is a conversation between two greats of comedy broadcasting and podcasting: Marc Maron of WTF with Marc Maron, and Tom Scharpling of the Best Show on WFMU! I couldn’t be more proud to be marginally involved with this project. The song used is “Mausoleum”, and you can check it out and download for free (as part of the “Sons of Horus” album) in the Audio section of this site.
