TUESDAY: The Jesse Miller Talk Show with Eric André, Johnny Pemberton and VICE COOLER

Fun has never felt so free.

I’m proud to announce a very special Jesse Miller Talk Show. First, it’s FREE (with phone RSVP). Second, it’s at the Comedy Central Stage at the Hudson. Third, and best of all, it’ll feature the musical stylings/thrustings of the one and only VICE COOLER, known for, among other things, his stunning fashion sense, his wonderfully fucked music videos, and boundary-pushing work in tuneage (Kit, Hawnay Troof, Peaches, XBXRX). Also, he might bring dancers. If that’s not enough to convince ya, read LAist’s glowing take on the show.

FRIDAY: The Jesse Miller Talk Show with Wallpaper

$5 worth of fun. Straight up.

I’ve thrown my lot in with the inimitable eagle-eyed talent-scouting genius Jesse Miller (also known, when not in character, as the extraordinary comedic force Andre Hyland). “Miller” hosts a hilarious monthly talk show at The Improv in Hollywood featuring comics, actors and writers. Starting with this Friday’s gig, I’ll be booking a musical guest for each show, and we’re kicking things off with flashy dance destroyer Wallpaper., whose #STUPiDFACEDD EP is currently making the rounds. Here’s LAist’s take on The Jesse Miller Talk Show, and here’s what you’d be missing … if you were stupid(facedd) enough to miss it:
