Ironically, we can't do our annual Not So Dearly Departed Show, an event where Alaska comedians pretend they're dead and read their own eulogies, in person because we'd all very much like to survive COVID-19. But we can have it online! Just pretend we're contacting you from beyond the grave by possessing your computer. Click the image for the Facebook event.
Typically this time of year is when we'd have our annual Summer School for Drunks comedy show. Of course we can't do that now because of COVID-19. But we can follow the lead of real schools and go online! So have a drink and maybe learn a few things with your favorite Alaska comedians all from the comfort of your own home at Distance Learning for Drunks! Click the image for the Facebook event.
It was one of my greatest pleasures to interview Jo Koy. They say never meet your heroes, but he was incredibly friendly and gracious with his time. You can either pick up a copy of the Anchorage Daily News for the story, but I recommend checking out the online version as it's a much more in-depth interview than what was printed.
It is with great regret that I have to postpone Home Made Film Nite 2. Due to a recent press release from the Municipality of Anchorage regarding the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, many public spaces are closing its doors, including the Anchorage Museum. All ticket holders will be issued a full refund. I plan to reschedule the event as soon as possible. Thank you all for understanding, and please be safe out there.

Starting the year/decade with some cool news! Huge thanks to The Peoples Improv Theater for including me in the inaugural Asian Comedy Festival!
After five years and 10 competitions, Alaska filmmakers have put out around 200 short films into the world through the Film Royal events. While I'm getting crazy FOMO to be stepping away from organizing these to devote more time to growing Home Made Film Nite, I'm excited to see how this event will evolve. Thanks for being such a wonderful community of artists, and I hope you never stop making movies.
