We just hit the three year mark of my podcast with Joe Robinson, the Rob and Joe Show. 152 episodes in and going stronger than ever. This year was particularly awesome because we were picked up by Radio legend, Mike O’Meara and his network, MORE Broadcasting. You can listen to our show on our site, on iTunes, Stitcher and on the new Mike O’Meara Show app. We also do the show live every Monday night at 730 at live.robandjoeshow.com Get on it!
If you didn’t hear about my amazing trip to Afghanistan to perform for our troops on New Year’s Eve, you are missing one hell of a story. We got attacked by the Taliban during the show. By far the shittiest heckler ever. Listen to this episode of my podcast, the Rob and Joe Show, to hear all the juicy and amazing details.
I didn’t advance in Comedy Central’s Up Next competition. My set went great but apparently I wasn’t what they were looking for. Oh well. Back to the drawing board. And by drawing board I mean bar. That would be a good name for a bar. Nobody steal that.
I am a semi finalist in Comedy Central’s Up Next Talent Search. I’ll be performing Oct 21 in Boston at the Wilbur Theatre. Ten comics will perform. The top two will move on to the finals in NYC on Nov 6. Please tweet me some good luck tweets with @RobMaher and this hashtag in the tweet. #CCUpNext. That way your tweet will show up here. Thanks everyone. Hopefully, I will have some good news for you soon.
My reality TV show is getting closer to happening. Here’s the Pilot. Please watch and share. #TheRegulars. I hope you enjoy. My role on the show should expand once we get picked up. Fingers crossed.
In the last ten days I’ve visited six countries, taken ten flights, slept in seven different beds, operated a front loader, stood in a bucket truck thirty feet in the air, cut steel with a plasma cutter, worn a fire suit, sat in the cockpit of an A 10 Warthog, shook about five hundred hands, signed about as many autographs, posed for even more pictures, watched a man nearly die of Deep Vein Thrombosis, celebrated my birthday, advanced in Comedy Central’s Next Up contest, met some of them most amazing people in the world and wrote the longest sentence ever. I’m exhausted but give me one good day’s rest and I’ll be ready to do it all over again.
Huge shout out and thanks to all the wonderful men and women I met at Bagram, Thumrait and Al Dhafra Air Bases. It was an absolute honor to perform for you and get a glimpse into your world. I can’t wait for the the next tour.
For some kick ass pics of my trip please hit me up on Instagram.
Wendi Townsend is a dear friend and fellow Baltimore area comedian. We recently had a roast for her to celebrate her birthday. Here is my set. Some of these are inside jokes but trust me they are hilarious. I also took some shots at Baltimore legend Mickey Cucchiella and my podcast partner Joe Robinson. Enjoy.
