Showless Joe Jackson

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

Now that Monkeydick (my improv group) is winding down it’s run and Game Face (my sketch group) is finished with it’s show, I’m showless. Now I could use this time to sit in the corner and cry like a little girl. But I already did that last week. And I know if I want to create a new show I probably should wait until I’m inspired by something truly meaningful and great. But I have no time for that. Plus that seems boring. So let’s get on with it.

The way I’m gonna come up with my new show is to first pick a good title. I know most people create their show first, THEN come up with their title. But that’s not how I work. For me the title ALWAYS comes first. I can’t operate any other way. Here are some titles I’ve come up with so far. (Please note: these are not fake titles. They are real titles I plan to use.)

Hey, Look What I Can Do!
I’m Doing This Show Just to Do a Show
Land of 1,000 Fake Mustaches
Hold On, I’m on the Can!
What Should I Do Now?
I Quit
Don’t Hire Me
Lost Guy Eddie
Awkward Guy
The Foxworthy Brothers
The Cake Deliverer
The Pizza Deliverer
Rob Lathan, On Stilts
Rob Latham’s One Minute Challenges
Rob Lathan Presents, “The Rob Latham Show”
Dr. Tunes Goes to Camp
(created by Will Hines)

That’s it so far. Which do you like the best? And do you have other title ideas? (Please note: I’ve already used John 3:16 and The Osgood-Schlatter Show. So just in case you somehow randomly thought of them as show ideas, I can’t do them again.)

The Language of Film

I have a website. Have you heard yet? Will Hines helped me set it up. Pretty cool. He put these shockingly glorious films on the site. Maybe you’ve already seen them. Maybe not. Go to the section titled ‘Movies’ or click here:
