So you like to read old Vonnegut? Watch Scrubs reruns? Enjoy irreverent, off-kilter humor that has an equal chance of being offensive or moving? One of the things I like best about this writer is his fresh, witty, thought provoking, sometimes offensive, sometimes touching take on life. Even as he claims to be a liar/storyteller, what he writes is very real and human. He manages to pull out thoughts that lurk in the dark/private recesses of our psyches and treat them with wit, self-deprecation, and heart. He says the point of his writing is to be a catalyst for people to think weirder. With a delicious improvisational, conversational style, he points out regular-joe inanities as well as fantastical possibilities. Based on the fact there’s a stunted adolescent in each of us, he utilizes vulgarity as a tool similar to George Carlin, with intelligence to back it up. Mainstream he’s not, but an audience he should have, in the same way Tom Robbins, Douglas Adams, and Kurt Vonnegut garnered attention: with wild words written well.
