The Tinysuperstars blog hit 2,000 hits so that's pretty sweet.
Shout out to Carrie Barkschat and Matt Huss. They str8 up made a tinysuperstars logo for a photoshoot. Now all I need to do is talk Bridget into getting her picture taken. Please comment with "let's put B Naj in the shot" and hopefully that will persuade her to give us a pose or two. Also--first of many shout outs to 7 Diamonds Clothing Company. They have offered to provide me with amazing clothes for my shows, and I think that is WONDERFUL. Check out their stuff at 7diamonds.com.
Myriam (my girlfriend) was going to write on today's blog, but she is caught in the rain. She will post tomorrow for sure. Ok--I think there were a few more questions so let me get to those. Here's the first set of questions:
So TJ, are people just following you around all of the time? How does that work? That sound like a nightmare but could also be kind of neat. I think you should get used to it though because you will be a superstar. In many peoples eyes you already are. Bridget, so far what has been the hardest part of this? What about the best part? Also, when will we get our cookies? RAY
First off--I have 3 friends named Ray so whichever one this is--you are my favorite. Thanks for the love. Ok--I am not in a reality show, just a documentary so NO--people are not following me around all of the time. Although there is this odd man that sometimes just pops out of the bushes--but that's a different story I guess.
B Naj and Scott--the cinematographer come to my shows and get footage there. They are also doing interviews with me and with some people who know me, and I do daily videos that I send to Bridget so that is a lot of stuff. B works like 30 hours a week and has a very full life outside of this project, so our time together is very limited. I am certain that whatever footage she gets--she will piece it together to create a brilliant documentary. The focus of this film is on my comedy career and even though I am literally making people laugh every single minute of every single day--there is no need to capture my every move. I will let Bridget respond to the rest of the questions when she returns next week. I do know that all y'all will get your cookies and it will be worth the wait.
Here's the next question:
TJ, How did you get to be so kind, hilarious, and fucking awesome?
Do you have a favorite knock knock joke?
Well hello, Tosti. Thanks for the love. Your words mean a lot to me--I do not see myself that way most of the time, but I am glad that you do. I've been funny since I can remember--I've used my humor to get through life and to help others do the same. I grateful that I was given the gift to make others laugh. I think it's one of the greatest things in the world. Hopefully, I will use this gift wisely. As far as being kind--I think that being kind is just a really important thing to do. We choose the stories we want to be. I always want to be the cool nice person that someone meets and talks about in a positive way, so that is what I put out there. I'm also big on empathy--!! I know what it is like to be lonely, rejected, scared, hopeless, etc and I sometimes just offering a kind word or two can make all the difference in the world. "I give not because I have a lot, but because I know what it's like to have nothing."
Just an FYI--there are five people in this world though that I would never be nice to:
1. Rush Limbaugh
2. Dick Cheney
3. Donald Trump
4. Arnold Schwarzenegger
5. Kevin Federline
I do NOT have a favorite knock knock joke but I know that Bridget does. I'll let her tell it next week. My favorite joke of all time is: Did you hear about the two peanuts that were walking down the street? One was assaulted ( a salted) It's ok to laugh really hard cuz that is a great joke.
I will be performing on Tuesday, April 17th at
I will be performing on April 24th at the Irvine Improv. If you'd like tickets please let me know. Bridget and Scott will be filming at this show and anyone who wants to be interviewed for the film should contact Bridget at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't be shy. If no one talks about how awesome I am--that won't look good for my future:)
I think that's it for today. Since I left you with Bridget's favorite video yesterday I will leave you with one of mine today. Watch the dude on keyboards--seriously--you have to watch. Also--TONS OF BANJOS!!!
You all pretty much rock the world. Thanks for your support. Please leave comments. We love them!!
