BIO:Half comedy show, half rhetorical fight to the death, Arguments & Grievances is live comedy series and podcast featuring comedians debating outlandish topics with audiences deciding the victor.  Live shows run monthly in Chicago, and weekly podcast offerings include bonus content from hosts and post-debate interviews with performers as they tackle such heated issues as: “McRib vs. MacBeth”, “Hugs vs. Drugs”, and “Dr. Dre vs. Dr. Seuss”. Started in Chicago in 2013, the Arguments & Grievances podcast has appeared at numerous comedy festivals (Crom, Chicago Comedy Exposition, Memphis Comedy Festival, Beast Village), run a successful set of Midwest and east coast tours, and featured at The Nerdmelt theater in Los Angeles.  Producers also recently expanded the podcast to include content from a Denver incarnation of the show.  The podcast is produced by Chicago comedians Goodrich Gevaart, Kevin Brody, Kevin White, and Zach Peterson.

"It’s smart, high-stakes tomfoolery disguised in a brilliant, faux-brainy conceit….This show is a riot."

Head Master


When I was little I lived on a 48 foot sailboat and was hanging out in the Atlantic Ocean.  I was boat schooled through the Calvert School at:

105 Tuscany Road
Baltimore, Maryland 21210
(410) 243-6054

It was wonderful they sent the best stuff and I learned more with them than I did at my next school which was a prestigious private boys boarding school in Virginia. So if you are a parent and have a child that is over traditional school and don’t know how to homeschool. This is the right answer, They have been in business since 1897 and they have figured it out.

Podcast: Black Astronauts (Blackstronauts). Episode 5: Giants (w/ Andrew Holmgren). Hosted by David Gborie and OJ Patterson.

The Blackstronauts, encapsulated in the far reaches of the cold, dark vacuum, recall a recent simulation. This simulation had them half-intoxicated in AT&T Park, rooting for the San Francisco Giants – en route to a championship – alongside the premier Giant’s enthusiast, comedian Andrew Holmgren. Hologram recollection is often fragmented, especially at Mach David Gborie, but the trio does the their best to remember the Earth-day that once was. 

This shit is like a Thanksgiving feast where you eat the pumpkin pie FUCKING FIRST and skip all those lame-ass vegetables and dry turkey. 

Comics will cut out most of their bullshit act and leave you with the joke/jokes they keep closest to their hearts- their closers. Jam packed with their own personal favorites, old faithfuls and maybe even some new tricks, I’ll Leave You With This will teach these comics their ABCs- ALWAYS. BE. CLOSING. 

This month we get to welcome some rad out of towners, some Bay Area heavy hitters, lovely ladies from afar, a few weirdos Andrew Holmgren I’m looking at you) and maybe even a special guest or two! Our guests are-

Johan Miranda
Karinda Dobbins
