Joke Lab: Sexual Fantasies and Guilt

Thursday, March 18, 2010
8:30pm – 10:30pm
The Labcabin
833 North La Brea (next to Jet Rag)
Los Angeles, CA

The premise of Joke Lab is that every week 6-8 comedians are given a topic to create brand new material on or inspired by the topic for the week. The material can take any format as long as it is related to the topic in a way that will be apparent to the audience- can be sketch, a character or concept piece, storytelling, or stand-up. At the end of the show we take an audience suggestion for the next week’s topic and send it out to the comics booked on that show. So every week it’s a brand new show with new comics and new, never seen before material.This week’s topic: Mothers and Headaches!

Thursday Mar 18th line-up:
March 18th (Topic Sexual Fantasies and Guilt)
Ron Lynch (The Tomorrow Show)
Jason Nash (The Shaman)
Hal Rudnick (UCB Theatre)
Bill Chott (Wizards of Waverly Place)

Acting is an emotional purchase

Posted on February 22, 2009. Filed under: Bonnie Gillespie, facebook, Jim Greenleaf | Tags: , , , |



Acting is an emotional purchase. It’s a love hate relationship. It is the human condition which we expose. It’s really the only time I grow inside and is the only validation of my existence.

This is why at 52 years old I come as a child back to my dream. Without your feedback I am on the outside looking in, with it I have I hope.

Call me corny, old school, but no matter what the feedback is it’s the most important validation an actor can receive. How it is received is only a testament to the willingness of an actor to grow.

For this and this alone is why Self Management For Actors is my Bible and Bonnie Gillespie you are my Sage.

1jim2On The Road With Jim Greenleafontheroad



 I was setting on my couch in Palmdale. I was totally frustrated with my career.          

Don’t get me wrong. I had a wonderful time as a real bearded Santa. I published my book and DVD, “THE SANTA STORIES”, and over 226,000 live views in just 9 shows of Santalivenow video podcast show. My “Santa’s 25 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar” had over 14,000 downloads to iTunes.

But, Christmas is over, now back to the couch. Earlier in the day I received a call from AKA requesting me to change my picture on LA Casting because Christmas was over, which also required a trip to my local barber.

I must be going through my mid-life crises. I WENT STRAIGHT TO MY FACEBOOK. The first thing I saw the reminder about your book signing at 7 pm.

I ask you. Who on God’s green earth needed Self-Management for actors more than me?

So, overcoming myself, I hopped into Stancer (The Santa mobile) and began my sojourn to Samuel French. I became, Don Quixote, on my quest for my impossible dream.

Though out the Q & A Bonnies answers were so on point with my own understand of the industry, and yes I worked the room in a effort to gain her gaze.
