Kiss of Death - RAW CUT

EKiss of Death - RAW Cut Comedian Bill Blank’s first childhood kiss triggered a rush of anxiety attacks that still plague him as an adult. Bill talks about the peer pressure attached to hitting it off with girls, experiencing your first kiss and simply having a girlfriend even if the relationship is for a couple of days. Bill talks about the build up and the fascination associated with it all. He also opens up about his friends waiting for the ‘moment’ and when it finally happens, and how for Bill, it was the most disgusting thing he has ever experienced. Bill started battling severe anxiety attacks at the age of ten. Once he was a teenager he started having irrational thoughts and a heavy fear of death. “I just thought, I’d rather commit suicide than live in fear of dying.” Bill slowly learns to accept and deal with his anxiety by treating it as a ‘person’ and talking himself out of fear every time it tries to overcome him. He makes the anxiety his strength. Then at the age ...

Something to Talk About

E“I dunno what you’re going to call this, but we’re going to talk about how I became the monster I am today… which is just another name for ‘comedian’.” is how Lace started our conversation. Lace Larrabee grew up like a lot of comedians do. Playing dress up in their mother’s clothes and charging relatives for tickets to an exclusive living room performance. Lace spent her childhood in a trailer park in southern Georgia. Her parents workedmultiple jobs to make ends meet toraise Lace and her younger sister. As shegot older Lacenot only recognized but admired her parents work ethic. Lace wanted to give her parents a break. So she thought that becoming a bonafide movie star (in the eighties) would be the perfect career choice to allowLace the opportunity to repay her parents for all their hard work. “When I was a little kid, we had to fill out one of those forms that said ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ It’s just one little line and all the other kids wrote like, ...

Unblock My Love

E“I wish I had a cool ‘coming out story,’” comedian Leah Mansfield sheepishly confided. “I don’t,” she laughed. During a commercial break of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Leah casually turned to her family and told them the news. “Ya know that girl that’s coming to visit me this weekend? Well… She’s more than a friend. I’m gay.” After a brief pause, her mom broke the silence with, “Yeah, we know.” And that was that. Comedian Leah Mansfield’s family has always been progressive. She was raised in a litter of six sisters, and one brother by two self-proclaimed hippies who work as environmental physicists in northern Seattle. Leah was a long distance runner and an above average student, but always felt a little different. Like when her sisters would be gossiping about kissing boys and rounding the bases, Leah remembers thinking, “Maybe I’ll wait wait til I’m married to have sex.” This is a normal feeling in the gay community. In fact, forty eight percent of teenagers have...

Funny Twist of Fate

E"FUNNY TWIST OF FATE" Comedian Ben Gleib has a fantastic podcast called, "The Last Week on Earth." He covers politics, celebrity gossip, life advice and nothing is off limits. He kicked off his podcast with a parade of high-profilecelebrity guests including Blake Griffin, Dane Cook, MeghanMcCain, AishaTyler and Sophia Bush. Ben and Sophia hit it off famously and ended up attending Seth Rogan's "Hilarity For Charity" event. That's when Ben met Bryan Cranston for the first time. After the charity event, the legendary actor from the hit series "Breaking Bad" agreed to do Ben's podcast. He came on and they acted like old high school buddies who hadn't seen each other in 10 years. The energy was electric. They were laughing, trading Rush Limbaugh impressions, Bryan was giving career advice. You name it, they talked about it. This ended up being the beginning of a lifelong relationship between Ben and Bryan. Bryan even sent a few of his co-stars Ben's way to do his podcast. This is a MUST...

Stripped

E"STRIPPED" Julain Fernadez was eighteen years old. Very shy and had never been to a strip club. So he calls the strip club down the street to inquire, "How it all works." Julian grew overweight and painfully shy. Two things I can directly relate to. Julian didn't really come out of his shell until after he found stage performance late in life. So he was kind of a loner. He never really belonged to any set of friends in high school. He was bad at talking to girls and never had a steady girlfriend. Young. Dumb and full of... money. Julian decides to visit a strip club. Little did he know, the events that unfolded that night would change his life forever.

E"MR. GLASS" To meet Ken Garr is to be immediately charmed. He has the cool demeanor of a Rat Pack member born to the wrong era. He’s a sturdy guy with a Midwestern ease and whip-smart whit.Dude is smooth.So, it caught me off guard, initially, when he casually mentioned he earned a bronze medalist in the 1988Special Olympics. I don’t know what I expected a 1988 Special Olympian athlete to look like, but it certainly wasn’t Ken. “I did the math. I went back and looked at my medical records. I think I have broken around thirty-five bones. So if you average six weeks for recovery… that’s around two hundred and ten weeks or roughly four consecutive years of my life just recuperating.” Ken has spent most of his life being broken in one sense or another. His first bone break came at six months, and by age three, he’d broken his legs six times.His bones endure a rare bone disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which basically means he breaks easily. The disease wrapped most of his ...
