What could be funnier than the “Speaking Millennial” podcast with Bill Spadea, Jessica Nutt and Jay Black? I know the list is endless. But seriously folks, how about “Speaking Millennial: The Comedy Show!” hosted by Bill Spadea and Jessica Nutt. Saturday, March 24th at the Brook Art Theatre.

It’s a very funny comedy show headlined by Jay Black, who performs all over the country and just got back from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Jay has also been named “College Performer of the Year” and is a three time winner of “College Entertainer of the Year.” Jay also hosts the US Army’s “I Am Strong” tour in Europe. You may also have seen one of Jay’s movies: “Paulie” with Paul Sorvino, “Meet My Valentine” with Scott Wolf, and “Love Always, Santa” with Marguerite Moreau.

Also on the show will be the very funny Steve Trevelise, (when you write the blog you can be anything you want). I regularly perform all over New Jersey and the Delaware Valley and has opened for suck legends as Pat Cooper, Robert Klein, Dom Irrera, Louis Anderson and the late Richard Jeni. Also performing, Eric Potts who has opened for Gilbert Gottfried

Get Involved, Internet: Fund a Wet Hot American Summer RPG

Here’s one for anyone who’s ever needed advice from a talking can of mixed vegetables, or just longed to be Paul Rudd tossing silverware: Comedy publisher The Devastator has just launched a new Kickstarter seeking funds for a tabletop RPG based on Wet Hot American Summer.

Capturing a day in the life of Camp Firewood (or a camp of your own creation), the book features a foreword from writer and director David Wain, plus interviews with Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, and Marguerite Moreau, offering tips on how best to portray their WHAS characters. (You can also design your own camper, if you want to unleash the ultimate talent show champion that doesn’t suck dick.)

Designed to look like the “gernal” of Rudd’s rebellious loner Andy, the book features sections on exploring and designing the camp, setting up activities, and potential plot hooks like saving the camp, or just getting as laid as humanly possible. Kickstarter rewards include digital and printed version of the manual, plus a jar of Gene’s dick cream, or stick team, or whatever it was you think he said.


Thriller ‘Overexposed’ begins production in Oklahoma

The feature film “Overexposed” will begin principal photography Feb. 6 in Oklahoma City and Guthrie.

The movie is using the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program, administered by the Oklahoma Film + Music Office.

The state film and music office, along with producer Rob Allyn of Margate House Films and producer-financier Simon Fawcett and executive producer Larry Mortorff of UK-based Atlantic Screen Productions, made the announcement today.

We are excited to bring ‘Overexposed’ to Oklahoma,” said Rob Allyn in a news release. “The state is a perfect fit for the American-heartland setting of our film. It’s an important film and the local community has been instrumental in helping to bring our story from page to screen.

Director Conor Allyn is returning to Oklahoma after helming the film “Forsaken,” which accessed the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program in summer 2016.

I’m thrilled to return with another exciting film and to be embraced by the exceptional community of filmmakers here. It’s a spectacular place to work, and we are thrilled to be part of OF+MO’s success in building film industry jobs here,” said Conor Allyn in the release.

“Overexposed” is a gritty, topical thriller dealing with important social issues. In small-town Oklahoma, a teenage girl, whose mother is the local sheriff, is caught up in a sexting scandal that leads to panic, outrage and murder. The film teams writer/director Conor Allyn’s Margate House Films with Atlantic Screen Productions for the first of several planned co-productions between the U.S. and British international production companies.

Between the authentic locations, the crew and overall support, we felt that there was no better place for us to film than Oklahoma,” said Fawcett in the news release.

“Overexposed” will be lensed by Oklahoma’s own Director of Photography Sam Calvin and star Marguerite Moreau (“Wet Hot American Summer”), Mary Katherine Duhon, Dave Maldonado and Taylor Murphy.

The production is being managed by local Oklahoma Production Manager Nathan Gardocki with a crew comprised almost entirely of Oklahoma residents.

The production of ‘Overexposed’ marks Conor Allyn’s second feature film in Oklahoma in less than a year,” said Oklahoma Film + Music Office Director Tava Maloy Sofsky in the release. “The longevity of the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program is necessary to attract producers who have a number of potential productions which ultimately provide Oklahoma’s crew and film services on-going job and business opportunities.
