Professional Smart Aleck Carla Ulbrich in concert - 8pm
Camarillo, CA

Although not an actual dining establishment, the Camarillo Café is a delightful, intimate coffeehouse-style concert series in Camarillo, California. A smoke-free and alcohol-free coffeehouse-style concert series sponsored by the Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District
and hosted by Gary & Kathy Lynch.

This is a "regular" show (regular humor, with a dash of "sick humor" thrown in).

Opening Act: Comedic duo Actual Size

Double Bill: Carla and "Actual Size" Duo Andy Corwin and Steve Goodie - 8pm
2029 N. Lake
Altadena, CA 91001
Price: $15

A really funny comedy show with myself and Actual Size, a duo made up of Andy Corwin and Steve Goodie.

ANDY CORWIN (despite appearances to the contrary) is a singer/songwriter comprised of nearly 60% water. In a past life, He was one fourth of the political comedy/folk music quartet "The Foremen". As the bass player and resident hairball of The Foremen, Andy performed throughout the US and Canada and can be heard on two Warner/Reprise releases, "Folk Heroes" (1995) and "What's Left?" (1996). On the other hand, he has spent much of the 21st century, so far, as a touring member of the legendary 1960’s folk group “The Limeliters”, (upon which the cult classic, "A Mighty Wind", was partially based). Andy is also an accomplished documentary film-maker with dozens of film and television credits. 

STEVE GOODIE (not to be confused with Eduard Haas III, the Austrian candy maker who invented PEZ™), was a founding member of “The Two Jew Revue”, a musical comedy act that managed, in its time, to offend audiences on all five continents. Songs from TJR’s two CDs [(“The Two Jew Revue” (1998) and “We Just Want You To Be Happy” (1999)] are still getting airplay on the Dr. Demento radio show, as well as a small naval AM station in Oceanside, California. As a professional standup comedian, Steve has toured the country for many years, and has been seen on Showtime, Comedy Central, and on NBC’s Today Show. Since 2007 Steve has been the emcee at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. 

Dozens of “actual size” fans can’t be wrong! Their soaring vocal harmonies, mesmerizing lyrics and fetching outfits make them a force to be reckoned with.

Songwriter's Showcase: Special Comedy Edition - 9:00 pm
5601 N High St
Worthington, OH 43085
Price: $12 cover

Songwriter Showcase at Natalie’s features the finest professional singer-songwriters. Hosted by award-winning singer-songwriter Eric Gnezda, the series is held every 2nd and 4th Thursday. Due to the popularity of the series, Natalie's recommends tickets AND dinner reservations to ensure table seating for the show.

This will be a comedy special edition featuring myself and Steve Goodie!

STEVE GOODIE is a comedian, songwriter, musician, and registered unicyclist. Originally from Connecticut, he made the logical move to Nashville in the latter part of the twentieth century. His funny songs for both kids and grownups can be heard regularly on Sirius XM Radio, and on morning radio Zoo Crew Shows around the country... and he recently stunned WSM-Am Country audiences with his “Jewish Christmas Carol Medley.” That might have been a mistake.

His mock self-help book, “Achieving Happiness Through Lower Standards” is unlikely ever to be published, but his mom has a copy of it somewhere. You can find Steve at Nashville’s Bluebird Café every Sunday night, where he has been the house emcee since 2007.

Googie's Lounge/ The Living Room
The Upstairs Sessions - 7:30PM
New York, NY
split bill with Zoe Lewis, hosted by Kelly Flint of Dave's True Story. One part live performance, one part talk show: Musical performances by two artists interspersed with intimate and open conversation between the artists and host. Discussion topics include but are not limited to the artist's song writing processes, musical experiences and the inspiration behind their songs. The evening includes an open forum between the artists and the audience. Kelly was inspired to start the Upstairs Sessions by the TV show 'The Actor's Studio'. She felt that people come to see artists perform but never really get to experience them behind the scenes. The show has been tremendously well-received - come early because most shows are SRO. The Upstairs Session takes place in the small intimate performance space called Googie's Lounge, upstairs at the Living Room in NYC.

coming to ya from Todd's house! 45 minutes of humorous songs from both Todd and me.

Since both of us have fans who live too far away to come see us play live, or just can't get their schedule to cooperate when we do come through, we thought we'd do an online concert. It's not quite the same as being there, but we will do our best to make it as close as possible.
