Hey guys! So I know it’s been awhile since I’ve wrote a blog and updated everyone but I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’m currently writing a sitcom for the New York Television Festival (NYTF) with my co-writer Jordan Wapner to submit to FOX. The name of the sitcom is called DC to LA. Unfortunately, at this time I cannot give out anymore information on it but just know that we are working hard and creating some really funny material. Hopefully you all will be watching this show in 2014! We are both moving out to LA in October and pilot season is just right round the corner in January so it’s perfect timing! You can stay up to date with our current projects by following us on twitter at @GaryDunkel and @nadrojWapner
I went to the Improv Comedy Club at the Hard Rock hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida tonight to see comedian Bobby Lee. I love going to the Improv pretty often and its become one of my favorite places to go to for good entertainment. I have seen so many different comedians there and other clubs and 95% of them are pretty hilarious. Tonight though, Bobby Lee put on the greatest live comedy show I have ever seen. The man is a comedic genius. Before tonight, my favorite comedian i’ve seen at the Improv was Kevin Pollak. Bobby Lee definitely overtook that top spot, Kevin has gracefully fallen to 2nd. Bobby was amazing from the second he got on stage, he knew
exactly how to pump up the crowd pretty quickly. As soon as he got on stage he started screaming and hilariously interacting with the audience.
At one point during the show, there was a lady in the audience using her phone and texting someone. Bobby, distracted by this, asked her to stop texting because its rude while he’s on stage putting on a show, she in turn gave him a bit of an attitude. He continued on with the show. A few minutes later he again saw her texting and asked for her phone, she reluctantly gave it to him. He then proceeded to pull down his pants, expose his underwear, and put the phone in them and rubbed it all around. When he gave it back to her she was so pissed off, she got up and left the showroom. As a token of his gratification for the other people at the table, he picked up that tables tab. This all occurred just as Bobby was preparing to give a man a lap dance on stage. You read that correctly, he was about to give a MAN a lap dance, going by the stripper name Lucy Liu.
Tonight Bobby Lee definitely made my “Top 5” list of comedians. Louie CK is still at the top and Bobby Lee is now #2. He has such a brilliant delivery of his jokes! I loved how much of crowd interaction he puts into his show. Comedians can not go wrong with crowd interaction, its always a good time. Many times throughout the show, Bobby took off his shirt, let his pants drop to his ankles and gave people “pube shots” as well as “missed” high fives that turned into the person copping a feel of his private area. If thats not genius, i don’t know what is!
Bobby Lee’s credits include Mad TV, Harold & Kumar: A Very 3D Christmas, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Pineapple Express, The League, Family Guy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and many more! Check out this video below to see what kind of comedic genius Bobby Lee is.

Does anybody know where 2011 went? It feels like this past year flew by so quickly!! I can proudly say that 2011 was a great year for me. I have worked on more projects in 2011 than any other previous year! In 2011, I edited a commercial that aired on Haitian National Television, I worked on a major Music Video set with Birdman, LiL Wayne, & Nicki Minaj, I Directed a Music Video that might be coming to MTV in 2012, & much more!! Things are picking up slowly but surely! 2012 is going to be a year of hustling, creating, goal-making, and of course success! I’m going to keep doing what I do and pushing harder and harder to make big things happen this coming year!! It’s time for me to get to the next level and that’s my main focus right now! With that being said, I hope everyone has a Happy New Years!!! Be safe!!
