Bronx World Travelers Receives Two Webby Nominations - Best Writing and Best Short Film of the Year!

My short film, Bronx World Travelers: Press Conference has been nominated for two Webby Awards! “Awesome! What’s a Webby Award?” Great question and thank you for being so into it without being sure what it was. With the help of copy and pasting, I shall explain -

"The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, the Webbys are presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 550-member body of leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities."

Bronx World Travelers was nominated for Best Writing and Best Comedy Short of the Year. The competition is nothing short of ridiculous. Here is the complete list of Online Film and Video Nominees.

In Best Writing I’m up against U.S. News and World Report, IFC and The Onion. That’s like a series of King Kongs fighting a poorly rested Curious George. In Comedy: Individual Short or Episode I’m up against CollegeHumor and The Onion. Again, it’s like two T-Rexes against a wounded depressed duckling without his prozac. Either way, I’m unbelievably happy and honored to be nominated.

They give a “People’s Voice” award in each of the categories, so if you want to vote for the little engine that could, register and vote here.

My Very Own Super Deluxe Show

I recently created a web series for Turner/Adult Swim’s website SuperDeluxe.com. It should be premiering in the next month or so. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated and post all of the videos on RejectedJokes.com.



The series has all sorts of talented actors in it including Rob Riggle (Daily Show with Jon Stewart, SNL) and Donald Glover (30 Rock, Derrick). I am really excited for this to premiere.
