The project operates grassroots chapters in 10 cities (from DC to LA to Malmo, Sweden) as well as produces books, film and TV projects.

      The ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice’ is here with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing. The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.

      I love a good joke as every year I try to pull a prank on April Fools (some better than others). In any case April Fools is the perfect day for a comedy show.

      Banger’s is one of my favorite places to hang out.  Their back patio is fantastic in this weather, it’s dog friendly, and they have chili cheese fries that I devour like the calories don’t count.
