In this week’s issue of the TYF! podcast, we speak to comedian/musician Rob Paravonian about his hugely popular Pachelbel Rant video on Youtube, and how he found his home in the crazy, anything-goes performance art scene of Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1990s.

In addition, he sings a couple of songs, including one from his new album, Keep Your Jazz Hand Strong. In addition, he’ll show us how combining comedy with a guitar makes beautiful women magically appear out of thin air. And I mean, literally. You’ll hear it.

Plus, Maggie Serota tells a story about how looking for an apartment on Craig’s List, surprisingly leads to hearing from pervy creeps.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS! AT THE CORNELIA COMEDY FESTIVAL!

Hey dudes, my friend John Morrison produces a wonderful annual comedy festival in the basement of The Cornelia Street Cafe. 

This Sunday, he’s kicking it off with a very special Tell Your Friends! show. It’s very special because it’s the first one I’ve done in 6 months, and will probably be the last one I do until December, when I will be producing a huge fundraiser for a friend’s niece who needs a bone marrow transplant. YES, I will be guilting you about that A LOT so get ready.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 18TH!
TYF! AT TCCF!
at Cornelia Street Cafe - 8:30pm
$20 cover - includes a drink

tyfpodcast:

Tell Your Friends! History’s Greatest Podcast! returns for the first issue of its second volume, with a double-issue filled to bursting.

We talk to Victor Varnado, who takes us down the path of his career, which took him from performing at gritty little East Village clubs to a Schwarzenneger film, from collaborating with Stan Lee on a comic book movie to directing his first feature film. He also describes what it feels like to do a major network late night TV spot.

Eden & John of the East River String Band talk about their early days in the gritty East Village, their first meeting at the Forbidden Planet comic book shop, Eden’s days as a squatter on Ave. C, and how they went from dating to artistic collaboration, and how Eden is the only person who can intimidate Robert Crumb into changing his artwork.

In addition, Maggie Serota tells us about her first apartment in NYC trying to decide who was the craziest roommate, and Bob Powers brings us a story of love in the aisles of Duane Reade.

All this, and Liam McEneaney tells another true story of illness and getting an unbelievable message from the Universe.
