Two years ago, I was performing at The Punchline in San Francisco, and Robin came to the show with our mutual friend, Dan Spencer.

This particular batch of material was the first time I had touched upon my then still-fresh divorce wounds, and big chunks of it were pretty dark. The next day, I got a text from a number I didn’t recognize. Whoever it was had obviously been to the show and knew my number, so I figured they would reveal themselves at some point and save me the embarrassment of asking who they were.

The Mystery Texter asked how I was REALLY doing. “You can’t fool me. Some of those ‘jokes’ aren’t ‘jokes.” By now I knew that whoever this was had been through what I was enduring, as no one else would know to ask, “What time of day is the hardest?”

He wanted to know how my kids were handling it, all the while assuring me that the storm, as bleak as it was, would one day pass and that I was not, as I was then convinced, a terrible father for visiting a broken home upon my children.

I am not rewriting this story in retrospect to make it dramatic. I did not know who I was texting with. Finally, my phone blipped, and I saw, in a little green square, “Okay, pal. You got my number. Call me. I’ve been there. You’re going to be okay. - Robin.”

That is what you call a human being.

I deal with suicidal, unipolar depression and I take medication daily to treat it. Over the past seven years, I’ve had two episodes that were severe and during which I thought almost exclusively of suicide. I did not eat much and lost weight during…

I’ve been seeing the “24 Signs She’s A Slut” article popping up on line. I thought it would be helpful for me to create a guide to telling if a dude is a slut or not. I hope this helps everyone.

Last week I did the Mancow morning radio show in Chicago.

It did not go well.

As a comic, I’ve done a lot of morning radio. It’s the main press for most Midwest clubs. Never have I had an experience like the one I just had.

Everybody is familiar with the Morning Zoo stereotype – the sound…

One year ago, this weekend, was the SMC shooting.

At the vigil for the shooting (something I could barely attend without the help of Morgan Jay, who went above and beyond what I would expect a friend to do and did it with a smile on his face) they had this therapeutic activity where you could write your feelings or thoughts on a card and they would hang them on the campus. I wrote the only thing I was thinking. I wish this never happened. I wish this never happened for anybody.

I quietly think about that day every single day. I think about how it changed me. How I can take back control in bits and pieces. How I will always feel so heartbroken for the victims I knew and didn’t know. How I can never unsee or unhear the things I did that day. How I still cannot watch a movie or tv show with a gunfight in it without getting sweaty and uncomfortable. How my sense of safety still has such a long way to go. How I will probably always have a different relationship to death from now on. How no one will really be able to relate to why certain things will now trigger an unusual reaction.

I spent the weekend surrounding myself with the security of people that I love who love me. I spent a lot of the last year in despair desperately trying to prove that I was worthy of the life I had been spared when people around me lost theirs. After this weekend I feel so safe with the people I love around me I just wanted to say this to mark the occasion. I am happy and lucky to be alive and still so full of love.
