The Dave Hill Explosion: Wed. May 24 at UCB Theatre w/Malcolm Gladwell, Fred Armisen, and Walter Schreifels

Attention People of New York City:

Hi. How are you? I am fine. Anyway, the reason I am writing you today is to let you know that on Wednesday, May 24 at 9:30pm, I will once again be showing up at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (accessible by both the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels as well as the George Washington Bridge. Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to leave 7-9 hours ahead of time for all sorts of reasons) for another exciting public display of the one-man ass-and-nutkicking machine I have taken to calling the Dave Hill Explosion. I know it is at this point that you might be thinking to yourself that I totally just did my show a couple weeks ago and it seems kind of soon to be giving of myself so much all over again and you are right. But when sick little boys in hospital beds pull adorable little oxygen masks to the side and ask me to do something I am inclined to just do it and not worry about what some cigar-chomping bastard in the front office might have to say about it. If young Mickey and his legal guardian want to drag all his crazy little machines and IV drips down to Chelsea to spend his last five bucks on seeing me do my thing then dammit I am here to make his little morphine-clouded dreams come true. And as he drifts off to sleep later that night in a state of fever-induced delirium, let mine be the very last 8x10 signed glossy he sees. It is called giving something back. Maybe you could try looking it up next time you are sucking down another one of your $9 lattes while you and your so-called better half duke it out over who gets to take the first crack at the maid this summer at your fancy little Hamptons getaway. Oh, f�k you, I am tired of it! Anyway, my guests on Wednesday, May 24 will be none other than bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell, who wrote the popular books THE TIPPING POINT and BLINK; legendary underground musician Walter Schreifels, whom you no doubt know from his work in such excellent rock ensembles as Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Rival Schools, and Walking Concert; and, last but not least, Saturday Night Live's most excellent Fred Armisen. This show is going to be so great I am jealous that I cannot just sit there and watch it like a completely regular person. I really hope you can make it. You can reserve tickets at if you are into that sort of thing. And before I go, a word from my sponsor.

Dave Hill
