This blog is geared towards disseminating information about The Chris Gethard Show and the world related to it. Fans of TCGS, please pardon me as I post something that’s more geared towards the NY comedy community in particular.
I haven’t been around the UCB Theater much in the past few months. I’ve largely gone on hiatus from improvising as I face burn out in a number of other projects and areas of life. That being said, I’ve been performing at the UCB Theater since I was 19 years old and consider it my home away from home. The UCB community is one I believe in strongly - so strongly, in fact, that I have opted continuously to stay in New York and take my chances on this coast rather then head to Los Angeles where I’m pretty confident I could clean up as a character actor who gets all the weird Clint Howard roles.
Recently, a controversy has brewed online coming from the stand up community. It largely revolves around this - shows an audience is charged for do not result in the performers being paid at the UCB Theater. Because I haven’t been around the theater much, I hadn’t really heard about all this online chatter. Last night, I read up on all of it. My opinions are below:
5 years ago my best friend started a rad men’s accessory company called Parabellum (www.parabellumcollection.com). They literally make the best leather goods in existence…BY HAND, HERE IN LA, and sell to amazing stores around the world. Finally after 5 years they are launching their women’s line and it’s awesome! For reals, I’ll be pimping it hard in my Facebook pictures!
Here is where you come in…Parabellum is in the running for a small business grant from Chase Bank and all they need is 200 votes. You don’t need to give your email address and it doesn’t cost anything. The only “catch” is that you have to have a Facebook account, but since you’re receiving this message you more than likely already have one.
PLLLLLEASE help me, help my friend!
Here are the 4 easy steps:
CLICK: “Log in & Support”
FACEBOOK: A window will pop up asking you to “Log in with Facebook”. CLICK this button. If you have any security concerns please call me.
NEXT: In the box that says “Business Name” type ‘Parabellum’ with Los Angeles, CA as the city and state. Then click on the vote button.
AND YOU’RE DONE!!!!!
My friend Mike and I are eternally grateful for your help and I’ll keep you posted if he get’s the grant or not! FINGERS CROSSED! XOXO - Nicole
just got locked out of my apartment for the second time in a month. i know what you’re thinking, “how dumb are you?” i too am considering the same thing. luckily, for me, my daddy raised me right. since everyone with my spare keys could not come to my rescue, i just thought back to the time when i saw my dad pick a lock and i went ahead and did the exact same thing. PRESTO! totally worked. i may have no direction in life, but man did i make my papa proud today.
