I really don’t care if this doesn’t go with the theme of the blog. That being said, follow me after the jump for insane crackpot theories of A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. Mega spoilers below.
Hey all, I have a few recovery gigs coming up and had to write a bio. I figured I would post it, because why not? Also, I have updated my Upcoming Events in case you would like to see a live show.
vaya con dios,
Hugh Murray has always tried to be the best at everything. Whether it was sports, comedy, writing or engineering; Hugh wanted to be a Renaissance Man. Unfortunately, this also included heroin. Idolizing the late Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, Hugh heard of “The Edge.” Thompson says “There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.” Hugh went over that edge and magically survived. 3 over-doses and 6 arrests later Hugh felt it was time to stop “partying.” Well, New York State decided and Hugh had to oblige or he would be performing comedy in jail. Regardless of who made the decision, it stopped being a party and it started becoming a lifestyle. It was a habit, a reflex or an involuntary action. Since being clean, Hugh is quicker and sharper than ever. He completely changed his life so he could continue living it. Now his goal is to spread a message through humor.
Hugh has been performing comedy since 2010 and has been in recovery since 2012. He has performed Recovery Comedy at Phoenix House, Talbot House, CK Post, NUMC, St. Christopher’s Inn and for Nassau/Suffolk Narcotics Anonymous events.
First and foremost, I guess I have to apologize about the lack of writing. Life happens. The new job is a killer on my free time and my mind is more focused on becoming a licensed engineer rather than a writer for free. It’s a shame that entertainers can’t entertain due to the shitty pay scale for writers, comedians and actors.
A quick update on what I have been doing…I just had a weekend at Joker’s Wild Comedy Club in New Haven, CT with George Gallo and Terry McNeely. It was awesome, as per usual with those guys. I have some things coming up. The schedule will be updated.
After the jump, I’ll have some memes that my friend Stephen Parrillo made of my comedy. Also, I will have some show posters that are coming up in the next few weeks.
Check out this show I will be hosting and performing with my good friends Terry McNeely and Just Plain Keith. It will be this Saturday. It’s for a Narcotics Anonymous convention and should be an awesome time. I’ll be there hanging out all day. Comedy show starts at 11pm. Come hang out and have a cup of coffee and raise money for a good cause.
Lately, I have been swamped. It is sad when an entertainer has to take a laborious job to support himself. I had to do just that. The wages in comedy are awful. It doesn’t help that I am in considerable debt from a cute little arrest in 2013. The state really likes to hammer their point home with fines until you are financially crippled. I digress…
I have still been performing. Mostly on my days off. Thursday and Friday nights is when you can catch me on stage. Rare appearances on other days will be listed on the the “Upcoming Events” section of this website.
As for what I’m doing:
- I am constantly doing my work at Get Involved Comedy in some way or another.
- I have 2 shows tomorrow night (10/24/2014). Check “Upcoming Events” for details.
- I was on a podcast last week. I finally received the link. Check it out: Live from the Tank.
- On November 1st, I will be hosting an NA convention at the Huntington Hilton. Check Upcoming Events for details.
- On November 17th I will be featured on the Roast of Terry McNeely. That should be a lot of fun. I wouldn’t want to miss that.
The busiest man on the planet who does nothing is back with another twisted adventure into the mind of a cynic. I think I saw someone post about this topic a while ago. I saved one line in my phone and I can’t find the source at all. So bear with me, my integrity as a journalist is at stake here!
Also, I think this blog has been labeled as a “Dating Advice Column” but I would like to stress that I merely like to write about marital relationships because I find them interesting. I also would like this blog to be about all sorts of relationships. This post leans more towards relationships in general, not just the sexy kind.
More after the jump.
Reading an article from my friends at UPROXX (click for source), I stumbled upon the most annoying person in the world. This post might send you into orbit. I know I bash women for being crazy on this website, so to be fair I will rip this guy a new asshole because he is a gigantic douche. This guy has a list of “Deal breakers” and they are all ridiculous. He must be forever alone because there is no way he found someone who follows all of these rules. Also, the list is quite long. Long and annoying. Is there a penis reference there? Ah, whatever it’s late.
If you don’t know what a deal breaker is, I will explain. A deal breaker is a non-negotiable aspect of a relationship in which you will not budge or compromise on. For some people it could be smoking. They will not date a smoker. I will say that this guy is a little more specific than this. More after the jump.
