What's making you angry today?
The clearing out of Zuccotti Park. The occupy movements being evicted by the police is making me angry. I feel the country is a bloodbath of unemployment and despair. More people need to hit the streets.
You are so freakin' funny – why aren't you more famous?
Are you related to Joe Pepitone of the Yankees?I have always been asked if I was related to Joe Pepitone. The short answer is no, even though I used to tell the kids in Brooklyn that he was my uncle to get popular!
Who do people say you look like?People say I look like a cross between Franz Kafka and Don Rickles.
What's your favorite thing about L.A.?My favorite thing about L.A. are the parks! Griffith Park, Topanga State Park. I just love to get outdoors and get some green!
You've tackled Runyon Canyon in your web series Runyon: Just Above Sunset, though it required an oxygen mask. What's next?I am thinking of writing another web series as a follow up to Runyon, this time about gold prospectors in modern day L.A. – they look like the old-timey prospectors but do it against the backdrop of modern day L.A.
What are you planning for the Bloodbath?Bloodbath is the show where I get to do a long headlining set of 50 minutes to an hour. I love getting to improvise off my stream of consciousness in a set like that.
