Since I moved to LA a few years ago, I have become acutely aware of the fact that I am not nearly rich or good looking enough. Every community has its own vibe; Portland is about being hip and chill, New York City is about wearing black and basing your innate sense of superiority on your geographical location, and LA is about looking super hot in your Lamborghini as you sit in traffic for an hour on your way to a grocery store that is only one mile away. There are other vibes in LA, too, and millions of really good people, but it takes a concerted effort not to allow yourself to feel “less than” in your cheap, compact car and your average face and body. I’m just saying that if someone opened a funhouse mirror place that made everyone look like a movie star, it would be packed.

My Comedy Show

Hi, Jazz Pickles. Here’s a link to a video that was shot of one of my comedy shows back in the 00s. I can’t remember the year. It happened at the Blue Metropolis Literary Festival in Montreal.

I’m happy to hire out to do my show someplace near you if you’re into it. I’ll perform at corporate functions, conferences, festivals, public libraries, you name it. For inquiries about the show’s content and what it costs to bring me, email us at BizarroPie@gmail.com

Bizarro 10-04-15 WEBEver wonder what those crazy stories in the Old Testament (or Torah) mean? Neither do I, but they are fun to do cartoons about and since it was supposed to have happened so long ago, very few people will say, “Too soon.” One might also wonder if this cartoon was created to mirror the current refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe and the answer would be no, not directly. Pretty much any time one does a cartoon about escaping refugees, there’s going to be a group of refugees somewhere in the real world. Sadly, humans have a fairly consistent habit of treating each other horribly and keeping each other on the run.

The Shirt That Won’t Die

So I’ve sold this cartoon on a T-shirt here in the US before and it was super popular, but I had complaints from foreign readers about the high cost of shipping to Europe. Here’s the solution: a UK-based campaign that ships affordably to everyone in the world, even the US! Bizarro12-30-07DevolutionWEBI also got complaints that the shirts weren’t organic cotton so we changed that, too! All organic cotton, ships to anywhere, and a percentage of every sale goes to Jane Goodall Institute’s global youth-led community action program, Roots and Shoots! 

Hillbilly Physics

Bizarro is brought to you today by Creepy Mannequins.Bizarro 09-27-15 WEBI’ll start today by saying I really love the title panel at top. It was cobbled out of a piece of an old Sunday cartoon of mine from ’08 which is one of my favorites. You can see it here. The “City Boy” cartoon itself is another of my favorite concepts. I actually published this idea several decades ago as a weekday cartoon but it was before cartoons were featured on the web and before I had learned to color my own work for print in Photoshop. SO –– I couldn’t resist redoing it with better art and color. I hope you enjoy the creepy goodness of the bottom-lit hillbillies.
