Good question. A question I ask myself every morning somewhere between my first cuppa morning Joe and my fantasies of chucking it all and living in the middle of the desert running around like a madman, completely naked and screaming blue murder. I am a writer. Some say brilliant and gifted. I don’t dare argue with these people. Basically I’ve been reviewing and writing about comedy and comedians for 7 years for The Jewish Journal and other online publications. I’m also still a performer, stand-up comedian, story-teller myself. I love nuance in art and my philosophy is this. I like words more than people. Words have meaning, whereas people are in constant search of meaning. Having said that, I need a drink.
There were these three little pigs. They ran comedy clubs. Then one day, the big bad wolf came to town. Tobias Wolfe was a high-powered entertainment attorney and part-time stripper talent manager. One day, Mr. Wolfe contacted Larf publisher Steven Alan Green with an offer of $1,000,000 to take Steven's writing to the next level. Just as the ink was about to dry on the contract, Mr. Wolfe died suddenly of a heart attack, leaving 100% of his aforementioned endowment to the Home for the Criminally Insane and Good Looking in Reseda, California.
Meet the Larf Team
Edward the Confessor
The son of Æthelred the Unready and Emma of Normandy, Edward succeeded Cnut the Great's son – and his own half brother – Harthacnut, restoring the rule of the House of Wessex after the period of Danish rule since Cnut (better known as Canute) conquered England in 1016. When Edward died in 1066, he was succeeded by Harold Godwinson, who was defeated and killed in the same year by the Normans under William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. Edgar the Ætheling, who was of the House of Wessex, was proclaimed king after the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but never ruled and was deposed after about eight weeks.
For Strength and good pancakes
Thelma "Butterfly" McQueen (January 7, 1911 – December 22, 1995) was an American actress. Originally a dancer, McQueen first appeared in film in 1939 as Prissy, Scarlett O'Hara's maid, in the film Gone with the Wind. She was unable to attend the movie's premiere because it was held at a whites-only theater. Often typecast as a maid, she said: "I didn't mind playing a maid the first time, because I thought that was how you got into the business. But after I did the same thing over and over, I resented it. I didn't mind being funny, but I didn't like being stupid." She continued as an actress in film in the 1940s, and then moved to television acting in the 1950s.
Thom "Exemption" Manowitz
Money Dry Cleaner
Released from Shawshank Federal Prison in 1949, Thom and I met in a dream I was having whilst spending the afternoon in the drunk tank for a D.U.I. Thom showed me the full meaning of deduction and is one of the architechs of the Larf Magazine and Publishing empire.
