The Rest Of The Summer Shows

I haven't posted in awhile, because working full-time is killing my soul.

But, if you (or any one of the twenty people that Google tells me actually reads my blog) need your Justin P. Drew fix real bad, I am booked at various venues in three states this summer.

Here is a handy tool I use to make sure I remember:

I am HOSTING a free comedy show in Concord. I'll be doing my regular bits plus old stuff and new stuff...
It's also part open mic and you should contact me for info how you (yes YOU) can get on that night. It's gonna be off the hizzle.

The Portland Comedy Connection, Thursday, August 5th 8:30pm

I am doing five minutes in a showcase in Portland, Maine, the town I started my comedy career in. Aww, nostalgia. Tickets are probably $5, maybe $8. I don't feel like double-checking.

The Winner's Circle, Tuesday, August 10th 8pm

The Winner's Circle in Salisbury, Massachusetts, does a weekly booked show, and popular performers such as Juston McKinney sometimes show up. It's free! And it's taped! So there can be a Youtube video out there with YOUR laughter at MY jokes!

Boynton's Taproom, Friday, August 13th 8pm

Yes, a Friday the 13th show. Holy shit! It's a contest in Manchester, NH. All you have to do is tell the people at the door MY name and you get in free!

I'm going back to IB to do their weekly Stand Up Showcase! $10, it's gonna be awesome.

If you need additional info or want to know how you or a friend can also get booked at any one of these, email me at JUSTINPDREW at AOL dot COM.

Sonia Oram Kicks Ass

My friend Sonia Oram is unlike most other female comedians. Whereas some women feel they need to increase the "nasty" factor, especially by telling more racy sex stories than their male counterparts, Sonia knows the value of staying cute and bubbly.

Sure, her set is deeply-rooted in PG-13 territory, but she pulls it off with this adorable innocence that is really quite spectacular. She should tell a story where she rips off a biker's dick with her teeth, and you'd just want to hold her close and snuggle her like a teddy bear.

Knowing her personally, she's an obnoxiously racist drunk. (Just kidding.)

What Has Rap Been Missing? Tom Waits!

For the last three decades, there have been two forces in music circling each other like heavenly bodies: Tom Waits, and hip-hop. Like an asteroid strike, the thought of the two coming together in a blinding explosion eclipsing all other types, forms, genres and varieties of music was possible, but not entirely likely. At least, not while you and your children are alive.

Finally, Los Angeles DJ duo N.A.S.A. have corrected this wrong, using Waits and rapper Kool Keith on their song "Spacious Thoughts."

...And it is fucking amazing. Like ice cream for my ears. Like a blowjob from an angel. Like, Tom Waits on a rap song.

Paul McCartney heard this track and said "Fuck the Beatles, I didn't know shit about music until I heard this."

Prince heard this song and said "I can't even listen to my old albums anymore. I've wasted so much time!"

If Jesus Christ Himself commissioned the five greatest musicians of all-time (Beethoven, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury, Tupac) to write and record a song for Him, Jesus would decide he liked this one better.

The real question is, how do I go on now that I've heard it? I used to value my iPod library, my record collection, my last.FM account, but now it's all useless. I am ashamed. I need to get more Tom Waits-meets-rap into me.
