March 27th 2013

I can’t think of a better time than the end of the world to make a major announcement for the New Year.  Some of you who follow my career may have noticed in this last year, I have been working hard to develop a new show. This isn’t anything particularly new for me; I am always trying to improve my style and write new material. 2013 is going to be different though because all this work is for a reason.  For the first time since 2007, I am going to be recording for a new CD/DVD and digital download package. The title of the DVD is still in development but I can assure you the rest of my vision is in place. I want to invite you all to make it out to the live recording which will be happening on Wed. March 27th at 8:00 PM at the Star Theater in Portland, OR. $10 in advance and $12 at the door. 

I wish you could be inside my head to know how important this night is to me.  We have been on a long journey together and this project is very personal. Hell, the material I have been working on for the DVD is personal. This isn’t a show to push the boundaries of shock either, so if you are expecting Cripple xXx 2.0, trust me when I say, it is nothing like it at all. It’s simply my life’s story. Going forward I can also say this will be my style of comedy for the foreseeable future. I’m a storyteller and I guess I’ve always been one.

It is also a huge honor to announce the other performers on the bill for the evening. Crystal Kordowski will be hosting the show and Chris Smith from Philadelphia will be my opening act. Not only are these two comedians amazing to watch, they are some of the closest friends I have.  The respect and admiration I have for them both goes way beyond anything I can say here.  Who they are on and off the stage, how they conduct themselves in life, and their long form storytelling style are just a few of the many reasons I chose them to be a part of this special night. Both are amazing parents, honest, and hold themselves to a standard of integrity few possess.  Thank you both for being a part of it all.

How I imagine the night of March 27th going, I replay in my head on a daily bases. I cannot wait to play it out for real on stage.  Put this in your calendar and help share the moment with me and as always, thank you all for your passionate support along the way.

Lonald.

Ep39: The Dunce factor

From The Nook Podcast

To get the full impact of this episode, you’ll need to watch this video first:

Let’s face it; if there is one thing the world doesn’t need, it is people who are deviants to our society. Our culture is filled with them though.   You can find them everywhere, from your traditional teenage and grade school bullies to someone who can’t even drive down the street without risking everyone’s life around them. And for what, all because they felt slighted while merging into one lane of traffic? It can be as insignificant as not answering your cell phone when we all know you’re not really away from it, to an extreme example of what might just be the worst human ever filmed on video.  In this episode I break them down in the Nook.  You should ask yourself this question, what kind of person are you and are you even contributing to the growth of mankind.  If your answer is “I’m a monster and no.” Then don’t bother listening to this podcast, instead do us all a favor and take yourself out of the equation.

In this episode: The Human factor

  • Answer your phone cause it’s in your pocket
  • Move over! I’m more important
  • Teaching family values for generations to come.

Ep38: Sticking to it ever since

From The Nook Podcast

The process of Self-discovery is always so uniquely different with each person.  When given the opportunity to take to the Nook, my special guest and up-and-coming local Portland, OR comedian Xander Deveaux, didn’t waste any time.  His segment literally starts in the fourth grade and then he takes you on a journey from his seriously dark and traumatizing life situations to the moment he decided who he needed to be. Xander never paints himself the victim; instead it was if everything was for a reason. I can tell you first hand from watching him live, it all was for a reason and his story, although just beginning, has turned out just fine.

In this episode:

Xander Deveaux

 

  • I might be mental
  • You look right
  • Hey I did this so I’m a lady now.
  • Saddest Tom Waits Song ever

Ep37: I don’t trust little lips

From The Nook Podcast

I don’t think people ever think about this but not everyone in our own personal circle of life can be trusted.  There are many types of untrustworthy people.  There are out right liars, people who thrive on drama, people who really believe in the stories they spew out.  This means we all must have our own tell in order to weed out the liars from the truth-tellers.  My tell: In more cases than not, if you have little lips, you just can’t be trusted.  There are a few exceptions to my rule but not enough to overturn my ruling.

In this episode:

  • I was so scared I made a noise, which made everything about that moment disturbing
  • Who thought a  drive through window on the passenger side was a good idea?
  • I don’t trust little lips
