When you want to see Ghostbuster stuff in NYC neighborhoods Who ya gonna call? These guys!
Have you ever wanted to see how easy it was to go to all the external New York City locations in Ghostbusters? Well, as the video above shows, it's pretty damn easy (and fun). Also, at the end there is a list of all the locations' addresses so…what I'm saying, is if, ummm, you don't have any plans this weekend, do you maybe wanna check them out, or whatever? Yes!? It's a date.
All Dogs Go On Tour, Part Three: Where we forget stuff, prepare to die in the snow, dance the night away, fear and loath strip clubs and saloons, and sleep little.
Dear tour diary,
I have to go backwards. I forgot a day. I lost a whole day. A holiday even. Groundhogs day. I forgot to write about it and I can’t remember whether or not the damned dog-hog fled from his shadow. I’m losing holidays.
Columbia was somewhere between St. Louis and Wichita and also the first theater to put us up in a hotel. This one even had a pool! But alas, on Groundhog’s day we checked in with no time [...]
"Terrible" is scrawled backwards in blood across the hood of our van. It’s backwards so you can see us coming in your rear view mirror. Still, as we drive, I can’t help but feel that the signature is not enough. On previous tours our van was decorated with a naked 1979 beefcake named Cobra, genitals covered only by a babe’s hand. Unfortunately, some Chicago prudes scratched him off with angry fingernails before we left and so for now we are feeling dangerously inconspicuous, boring even. This must not stand. Soon we will get some paint.
Come one, come all, to the tour of the glamorous accomodations at Esther's Follies comedy show at SXSW. A vegetarian option will be provided. John Hodgman is your tour guide, and there may be run-ins with Kyle Kinane, Kumail Nanjiani, Todd Barry, Gabe Liedman and a male bartender named Dana. You'll feel like you're right there in Austin, even though you are at home staring at an electronic screen and tricking your mind into simulated experiences. Admission is free!
Aziz Ansari is prepping a pretty huge nationwide tour this spring and summer dubbed Buried Alive! It's a brand new full hour of comedy, which is fun. And if you want to go to the show near you, a limited number of good seats will be available fee-free from the presale on his site starting on Wednesday. Set those alarms!
Mike Birbiglia's latest (and very excellent) one-man show, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is about to head out on the road. If you didn't get to see it during its Off Broadway run in NYC, your opportunity has arrived. It's a 27-date tour that takes him to all of comedy's biggest hotspots, from Tampa to Turlock, CA. Yes, it's a real town, I assume! In any case, check out his website for ticket info and see the full schedule below.
All Dogs Go On Tour, Part 4: Where we escape America, play our way down the coast, go to Hollywood in Portland, and the news is that local news sucks.
Every day I wake wondering, “Where the fuck am I?”
This tour is wearing on us. We are living off of coffee and beer and really need to make a conscious effort to eat right and drink lots of water, a boring liquid that keeps one alive and healthy but doesn’t contain chemicals that make one high and happy.
Touring is auto repair shops and truck stops with racist Obama T-shirts. Our brakes are making noises. Squeaks and screams that grow [...]
Part two of Everything is Terrible's tour journal: where we travel from Minneapolis to Wichita, weird out middle America, steal bedrooms from children, ain't afraid of no ghosts, and keep moving.
California is home for half of us, and sitting on this familiar couch while sipping an IPA with my feet up makes me feel normal. This is me writing about two weeks ago, but it feels as if I’m writing about the ancient past. We are in the west coast now. We’ve driven through snow and mountains and deserts and though the country has been crossed, we’ve only just begun. We’re less than a third of the way through. Where did [...]
