Here at The Humor Columnist you will find original humor columns, links to funny articles I write for other publications, exclusive interviews with authors, book reviews and book excerpts as well as random funny stuff I find on the Internet. You can subscribe to new posts from this site by email.
The Humor Columnist was launched in 2011 after I was let go from my last office job, and I have since experienced the dizzying highs of being published in the Los Angeles Times and interviewing a Thurber Prize winner while my former employer has been indicted by the federal government for breaking trade sanctions with Iran*.

The above photo is not current. This was me as a kid, back when I pounded rosé and chain-smoked Winstons all day while writing fictionalized accounts of Cleveland Browns Super Bowl victories.
Today I work full-time as a self-employed journalist and am a graduate of Ohio University and get paid to write stuff like this.
