Apparently my show on Saturday got some press coverage. From The Boston Phoenix:

On Saturday, I spent my first three show blocks in the smaller theatre. The first act was Economists Do It with Models, a mock economics lecture done by Jodi Beggs. Or at least, Improv Boston called it a mock lecture in her show description — this was actually a very real lecture about economics in The Simpsons. It was still pretty funny. But I think I may have accidentally learned something.

Two points:

  1. In the grand scheme of comedy, “pretty funny” is an assessment I will gladly take.
  2. Anyone who’s read my bio knows that “accidentally learned something” is pretty much exactly what I’m going for.

I might be looking to expand the Simpsons talk a bit (to go with the book that is taking FOREVER to come out) and do the college circuit thing, so stay tuned.
