From The Nook Podcast

I think the best way to handle my anger these days is through my confessional booth rants here in the nook.  It gives me the wonderful opportunity to explode all the little things in life which get me riled up like when solicitors show up on my front door to talk to me about the word of the Lord, repairing roofs in the neighborhood or even when a guy wants to try to convince me Xfinity isn’t really Comcast when we all know it is and that I’d enjoy their services more than the service I already have.  Here in the nook, you get to hear how I handle this situation safely.

In this episode I discuss:

  • Get it through your head, your company sucks
  • I can’t handle video Games, I get retarded mad
  • The Zombies are attacking

From The Nook Podcast

Join me in a very special episode of From The Nook Podcast as I reveal an important announcement.  Something which means a lot to me, nothing this big has happened since 2007.

I’m trying to get back into the groove of my life and it is important because I have some very important projects coming up, one which I will announce tonight at the end of this podcast.  With that said however, I have had an interesting few weeks since my return home from vacation.   When life gets hectic you need to find common ground. You need to find your center, your reason for moving forward, your motivation for living. For me, unfortunately it comes with a heavy price, in the form of a sweaty new age bath house sharing with total strangers, how comfortable I am with my own body.  Nothing grounds us more than being completely naked with some other total stranger who is equally comfortable doing the same thing.  The key to being grounded is humbling.

 

In this episode I discuss:

  • Finding Common Ground
  • Juicy Purple Grape
  • Assisted Suicide in the literal  sense
  • Podcast ‘s I highly recommend
  • March 27th 2013

From The Nook Podcast

Whenever you return from vacation it is really hard to get back into the mindset of working again, from performing to podcasting, hell even getting back into my work out routine.  Then as you transition back into the life you lived before you left for your trip to paradise, you begin to be reminded of the thoughts and frustrations of why you wanted to go on vacation in the first place.  Your head begins to fill up with these situations, or  at least I do.  The unique advantage I have is as soon as my tank gets to the brink of spilling over, I get to flush it out on a new episode of my podcast.  Well, thank you Nook for giving me the outlet in which to get it off my chest.   

In this episode I discuss:

  • Back from San Diego:  Small children hate the Zoo.
  • The phrase Proud to be an American
  • The Human 2.0 Council
  • Worst fight I had with Rachel
  • Designated Driver

Tonight is the big night folks.  I will performing my headline set and in a way it is sort of a dress rehearsal for an upcoming event and recording of my next DVD which will be announced later this month.  This theater, its staff, the owner, and the lovely people of Ridgefield, WA are absolutely one of the reason why comedy became my love. This venue and its stage is one of the best places I’ve had luck to set foot into.  Todd Armstrong who puts this show on and one of my favorite comedians to work with has given me the opportunity and I must say, I’ve been looking forward to tonight’s show for a long time.   Thank you Todd, you’ve been good to me. 

What can you expect from me to tonight.  I will be opening with a bit of a surprise.  I will begin the night talking about something I have had to get comfortable with but comedy is always how I confront my fears, by shining the bright light of humor into the face of my fears and self-conscious vulnerabilities.  Tonight will be no different.  It will be one honest story after another and sharing my life with all of those who show up.

All the details are on the poster

See you on the other side:

If for some reason when you reached episode 25 and thought to yourself, I cannot wait to listen to what will be an epic benchmark episode in Lonnie’s podcast history, let me tell you this is not the case.  If anything it was an epic bad decision on part to even upload it to my site.  Yeah, I thought it would be a great idea to… well, why spoil it, listen for yourself and cast your own opinions.

Recorded just before I went on vacation

In this episode I discuss:

  • For my entertainment
  • Alien Huggy movie
  • My kids never play outside
  • Guys don’t know how to have a conversation with friends
  • No one uses the word Villain anymore

Every year there is big change when it comes to my style and my overall goals in comedy; after all, each year my life changes. So why in the hell should my act and opinions of life and comedy be any different?  Now when it comes to the business, in a future post, I’ll have a lot more to say on that subject, especially local scenes but for now let us just focus on me for a second.

This year I have a lot going on.  I’ll be returning to Harvey’s Comedy Club at the end of Oct as their one of two R rated comedian for the year.  Some may be thinking, who cares; you’ve already headlined a special event show every year since the ban was lifted.  Not true, my little cunnys.  I have only done two special event shows at Harvey’s since the lift because I wanted to keep it hugely successful and attendance high.  What makes this different, I am returning to headline the club for the entire week’s performances, something I have never done since the ban or even before.  I can assure you, it is something which will be, not only big, but needed:  A local comedian who will breathe a breath of fresh air of honesty into the club since, well, probably Doug Stanhope.  I’m replacing comedian John Fox, whose act died long before his real death plus, let’s face it, John wasn’t very good at being human.

In March of 2013 I will also be recording for the first new DVD/CD since the release of Cripple xXx in 2007. This will be an amazing event but I will need your help.  I am going to launch a Kickstarter Campaign in the beginning of 2013 to help fund the project.  This is where you come in.

I began thinking about how important you are in the big equation of my career and I’ll be honest here; you are the root to it all. With that in mind, a rebirth of my fan base in this phase of my career is more important than any other time in my 23 years of doing comedy.  I need your help, not just to help raise the money for the project but because the one thing I have realized is that you are the very reason why I have been so successful.   We have always had a very close connection, a bond from the stage I stand on to the seats you sit in to watch me perform.  You were the reason why I was able to return to so many clubs who feared booking me.  You are the reason I have kept the ball rolling despite the fact the comedy industry has been reluctant to get behind my type of act. I am not a comedian festivals beg to have in; I am not a comedian every mainstream club wants to headline, but yet I still perform, I still draw and still win major contests.  You are the factor which has helped in this.

I know now that I need to get back to the grass roots of what helped build my career.  I need to build my future success from the ground up.  I will never get praise from the mainstream industry.  I will only get it from the people who really enjoy my style of comedy, you.  The funny thing is if I can get enough of you to shout my name, the industry cannot ignore me.  So 2013 and beyond is all about you.  I need your feedback on what kickstarter incentives I should put into place as rewards for your donations and support.  Please voice your ideas and help create an intimate dialog between the two of us so I can give you things you really want and have you actually be a part of my next DVD project. Maybe you would want an exclusive and private email, or podcast episode made to you, a credit in the DVD package, a one of a kind signed poster or a chance to rant in a segment of From The Nook Podcast, a VIP seat at the live recording, a drink and dinner with me, a phone call to a loved one or an enemy, a private performance in your living room or just a simple acknowledgement that you were a factor in my life’s work.  The list is limitless but I need you to be involved voicing your ideas.  It starts by you commenting here or join me on Twitter or Facebook and let’s do this together.  I want to have a chance to tell all my critics they were wrong and you will be the secret weapon which allows it to happen
