Wieners in the NY Times


The Wiener Philharmonic, a delightfully sophomoric young comedy troupe, performs "Wine Teeth," a sketch show inspired by the history of various kinds of parties, from cast parties to after-parties to funeral parties. Directed by Jon Friedman, last responsible for "The Rejection Show."

Gene Frankel Theater, 24 Bond Street, between Lafayette Street and the Bowery, East Village; 9:30 p.m.; $7. (Also: every Wednesday in February)


The final performance of Penguin & Swollen Head

Saturday January 29th at 7PM. This show is FREE! Adam Wade's Penguin will not be performed as Wade is resting comfortably at his home in New Jersey, he's fine....In it's place we'll have a surprise performance leading into Rich Zeroth's Swollen Head. Come on out and see the show again --or for the first time --it's quite astonishing. Time Out New York calls Swollen Head a "despicable true story."


Written and performed by Rich Zeroth

Ever wanted people to feel sorry for you?

Ever faked sick to miss a day of school?

Ever done it 127 days in row?

A true story about a 5th grader desperately looking for attention who ultimately gets more than he bargained for: A rare brain disease and a school play dedicated to his speedy recovery.

Big Mac

I've officially changed worlds and I am now a Mac man. I've been a PC guy my whole life but now I am a man. This is why the Tremendousrabbit.com website is lacking behind in updates because I am relearning how to update websites and transferring files over. This post is hilarious. I haven't eaten a Big Mac from McDonald's in about four years.


Look at them...

Upcoming upcomings

February is right around the corner... That's weird that I just said that like that. "February is right around the corner." What am I, some sort of man who, speaks....like that? Anyway....

This week is your last chance to see Penguin and Swollen Head! There is a Saturday showing at 7PM and it's going to be a special showing. I'll give that it's own post.

Febraury has The Wiener Philharmonic presenting "Wine Teeth" at Juvie Hall at 9:30 on Wednesdays. Those shows are going to be fun. The Wieners remind me of a time and a place that I don't yet know.

Also, The Dog Show Party '05 is shaping up to be some sort of ridiculous fun.


Fabulous failings

Thanks again to everyone who came out to The Rejection Show on Wednesday night in the cold and the snow. An extra special thank you to those people who came out to the show and couldn't get in. Come back again, please. Did you realize that you were rejected from The Rejection Show....dahahahahaha....haha?....ha.

I'll post some highlights from the show on the www.tremendousrabbit.com website soon. I got some nice romantic polar bear footage. Site updates are coming. I got a new computer and don't fully know how to use it yet. What does this button do? +P^* Oh, I guess it does that.


Rejection Show poem

Tonight is The Rejection Show
I hope that you can go
the forecast calls for snow
Did you ever stub your toe?
Did you, Joe?
As a poet I really need to grow.
To be more like Edgar Allan Poe
Then maybe you'd go
to The Rejection Show.
Tonight at 8PM at P.S 122 on First Ave. & 9th St.

CBS comes through!

Yes, indeed that was The Rejection Show on CBS Sunday Morning last week. It was very cool to see it in that context. I'll eventually get that clip up on the TRP website along with some other clips.


Sincerely, New

I put up some new writing on the writing section of my website. These are things that I read at some recent readings. Happy Ending Reading Series and East Side Oral....ya'll.
