A day and night in the life of KAABOO Del Mar

The sun falls into the Pacific as a small commuter train whisks by, momentarily interrupting the rocking sounds of Garbage. And that was just the second stage at KAABOO Del Mar. At this third annual music and comedy festival held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, just off the northern outskirts of San Diego, you could find evergreen California bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction alongside 1990s stalwarts such as Weezer, Garbage and Alanis Morissette, rap titans like Ice Cube and T-Pain, classics like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and newer acts such as Pink, Muse,...

Ren & Stimpy documentary goes Indiegogo!

Hey, remember that Ren & Stimpy documentary I was telling you about a couple of months ago? Well, the folks putting together Happy Happy Joy Joy – The Ren & Stimpy Story done gone and cancelled their original Kickstarter campaign, despite raising more than $100,000. “Our end goal was overly ambitious,” executive producer Ron Cicero tells The Comic’s Comic, and as we all know, on Kickstarter, any crowdfunding campaign is either all or nothing! So, better to make sure Cicero and company get the money they need…they’ve relaunched their campaign on Indiegogo. They’ve received about $45,000 so far. Check...

I can be the same way with reading other reviews of a comedian, TV show or movie that I’m reviewing. Which is how I realize only after the fact that every other critic I’ve read on Jerry Seinfeld this week has gone to great lengths to mention or focus on his Jewishness, while I somehow didn’t mention it all. Is it because I’m a gentile? Does it have something to do the high...
