Hey Pretty People,

Well, it’s been a good year for us. We’ve performed at two festivals, put up some new videos, and started to perform a few improv shows. We’re concentrating on videos for the rest of the year, but we’ll be having an improv show at Stage 773 as part of SMUSH! on April 19th. Hosted by the lovely Liz McArthur, SMUSH! is a comedy extravaganza featuring sketch, imrpov, & stand-up comedy all on one stage. Party starts at 8:00PM. Hope to see you there. Check out the loverly details here: Stage 773

In other fun news, tomorrow (or today depending on when you’re reading this, possibly even yesterday) is Record Store Day! A celebration of all things record and store and vinyl. If you’d like to join us, we’ll be starting at Reckless Records on Broadway at 10AM to hunt for awesome tunes and whatever treats are at each store. Because of course you have to check out more than one! If you can’t join us, we hope you celebrate Record Store Day in your own way. PARTY!

Here’s a link to find out what’s going on around your neck of the woods!

We here at Long Pork love comics. We love them so much–that we make ’em, or at least pop up in them.

One such pop up is I, Lee Russell, your friend. I am a comic book character! I am IN a COMIC BOOK! Crazy, right!? But it’s true. I have the pleasure to be apart of the amazing book, INFINITE VACATION. Thanks to the talented photographer/artist/overall badass, Kendall Bruns, I got to bring a childhood dream to life by actually being in a comic. CHECK IT OUT!

Now, I have to admit that I’m the reason a couple of comic book shops are sold out, BUT if you can find copies of issues #1 & #2, buy them. You will not regret it. The art is playful and the story is wonderful. I won’t ruin anything. Just check it out and enjoy the vacation.

So, I was IN a comic, but Zoran WRITES his own comic! MYSTERY AFOOT!

It’s Lowcarbcomedy.com’s first comic! Written by Zoran Gvojic & Dave Schneider, Art by Max Bare.

If you ever wondered what would happen if Big Foot and Loch Ness Monster got together and formed a detective agency, this book answers that question. It’s a comic fantasy like nothing out there. You can read it online for FREE! What? Yup. FREE! A new page every Wednesday and more laughs than one man can handle, so read it with friends.

You can check out MYSTERY AFOOT here:
Mystery Afoot: A Lowcarbcomedy.com Comic Book – Bigfoot and Nessie open a detective agency to find other myths.

Well that’s it for now.

Oh, and there’s one more thing: Lastly, but certainly not leastly, see Mr.Charley Carroll tomorrow night (or tonight, or yesterday, depending when you’re reading this) in CO-ED PRISON SLUTS! at The Annoyance Theater in Uptown, at Lawrence & Broadway. Show starts at 10:01PM! It’s Chicago’s longest running musical and Charley is in fine form delivering the funny. Go see it & learn a thing or two.

Talk to you later pretty people.
