Last December we did this pilot for Comedy Central, started shooting the series this summer and now it is airing and is getting great ratings. For this I am happy, the show is really funny, everyone on the show is great to work with, David Alan Grier is a genius and the entire art department is the most talented group of people I have ever met. Two thirds of the Chocolate News art department Candleabra competing in a tranny pageant 'Maya' recites poetry for Obama and McCain Next Wednesday we are shooting a 'day after the election' show that will air that night on Comedy Central, or you can check out clips and other random madness at

It's been nine years since Boston based alternative rock band Letters To Cleo broke up and I am so thankful they did. Here And Now I remember taking the news hard because going to see LTC was such an important part of my life for a very long time. Catching a Letters To Cleo show at Mercury Lounge, Tramps, Irving Plaza or Roseland and being in Boston or New Jersey on the same night as one of their gigs was something I always made sure to do, if I could. At those shows I met up with friends, got to catch up with my sister, meet new friends, grab a beer and immerse myself in a style of music and the New York social scene that is basically the foundation of who I am today. When Letters To Cleo disbanded it was also the end of my time in the city, the

This is a presentation tape I shot way back in 2005. I had the idea after an emotional and drunken game of Celebrity at Mike and Kay's house a few months before after Thanksgiving dinner. We pulled together an amazing crew and cast. My friend Richard Valenzuela directed, Kaylyn Thornal edited and the incredible Darren Rydstrom was the cinematographer. Everything seemed perfect. Janet and I had just finished the Lisa Loeb show presentation tape, we had a new agent and, well, what could go wrong? After VH1 didn't pick up the Lisa pilot, we ended up selling the it to E! and TV Land picked up Celebrity. One, two punch. A budget was made, studios were scouted and our deals were made. And then it just sat there. Forever. Eventually all the executives at TV Land moved on to new jobs and we got the project back...and nothing happened. We pitched it to

If you are looking to liven up your next birthday party get your guests going with some drag queen bingo. Lisa Loeb's birthday party had it all, a magician, a caricature artist, pink cake, DJ Conroy and a big drag queen yelling O-69! I don't think I have ever been so competitive, and although I love Justine very much I would sweat with envy seeing her tap her cards with pink ink delight. For the record I didn't win anything but I am looking for a bingo hall here in Los Angeles to sharpen my skills.   Here's me losing. Here is Lisa cheering on some winner. I think he cheated.

“Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" (Wed at 10:30pm) is a hit!   It’s Comedy Central's top-rated debut since the launch of "Chappelle's Show" in 2003! Like "South Park," it was the No. 1 show in all of television for its timeslot among men 18-34 (2.4/8). For the night, Comedy Central stood as the No. 1 cabler in men 18-24 and 18-34. The influx of young men helped lift "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" to its most-watched telecast (2.25 million) since October.  This was a great show to be a part of. I had a small but fierce art crew and it was great to be with Chris, Eric, Alison, Sketch, Devon, Mary-Eileen, Karen and so many more of the amazing Mind of Mencia crew for a couple months.This past week Comedy Central threw a premiere party at Lucky Strike in Hollywood (I missed it) and I have a new DVR

Growing up I loved this little cat. As an adult I love this so much more. Garfield minus Garfield. Here is a description from the website and a sample.  "Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb."
