My Life In Jumbo’s Clown Room – Laughing Down the Rabbit Hole – Part 1

Up is down and down is up. I suspect we have been living behind the looking glass the whole time. I’m just hoping there is a joke in there somewhere, cause this shit be crazy.


Most of my professional life I have been a stand-up comedian. I have traveled to many comedy clubs, bars, and various venues throughout the United States. My mainstream claim to fame is that I was a top ten finalist on the first season of Last Comic Standing. The year was 2003. Joe Millionaire was hit, and American Idol was just in it’s third season. My instinct told me it was going to change the way comedians would be discovered. Up until then, the way an unknown stand-up comedian got national exposure was to appear either on The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien, or David Letterman. The pitch for the new reality series was a nationwide talent search for the Last Comic Standing in a head to head competition of whose the funniest. Eventually the competition would be narrowed down to ten finalists who would all receive a golden key to live in a mansion, bicker and fight with one another, create alliances, have weekly challenges, and eventually engage in a stand-up comedy mic showdown until there was a winner voted by the American public. I had a notion that people would get a peak behind the veil of the life of a stand-up comedian. It had never been done before, and I was excited to be the first cast in what is now a very successful reality series.

“Today many things have been titled, “Last…Standing” It is a little trippy to realize that I participated in creating a phrase that reinforces artistic Darwinian consciousness, and I feel a responsibility to correct my mistake”.

At the end of 2003, I was one of 100 reality stars paraded on the stage at the Universal Amphitheater lead by comedian Kathy Griffin in VH1’s Big in 2003 show. Reality Television broke through as being all the rage. Sure, all the actors and writers were pissed, but there was something much more sinister happening. There was a new clever genre of television to socially engineer us. The Hollywood wizards created a game of desire for it’s participants, added sound bytes, and then edited it into a perfect agenda to be aired to the American public as reality. Our new president elect Donald Trump is proof of how powerful this genre of Television has become.

So far, after two seasons of LCS and a large dose of national exposure I have not continued to work in mainstream television, but instead joined what is referred to as the Truth media, or Alternative media The Alt media is now being accused of creating “fake news” by a corrupt mainstream media attempting to cover up a major pedophile ring involving many of the elite, world leaders, religious leaders, and the entertainment industry. Oh, and we are also responsible for getting everyone’s favorite misogynist white supremacist elected as president of the United states.

How did I end up in the Truth media? Well, It all started with The Dope Show, and the 420 comic Jefferey Peterson. I co-produced a marijuana themed show out of the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, and subsequently ended up in a raid by the FBI in a medical marijuana dispensary located in North Hollywood CA. Before the raid, I was not a political person, and rarely paid much attention to world affairs. Hand-cuffed and on my knees, I realized that I had been asleep. I had voted for legal medical marijuana and now I had a gun in my face. Something was terribly wrong. This “something wrong” inspired me to create new material.

In December of 2009, I put on my little black dress and took a taxi to attend a film wrap party at a place called Jumbo’s Clown room. A few hours later I returned home totally disoriented and completely nude…

Go Topless Day Protest & Rally Venice Beach CA

I just recently went to a Go Topless Day Protest & Rally in Venice Beach California.  I was inspired to take Freedom Of Joyce Media to do a women on the street interview for a multitude of reasons.

Pasties me lighter smaller

I had recently interviewed my friend Suzanne Whang. I noticed that she made a  post over her discontent with someone whom had reported a photo that she had posted on facebook. The photo was a a picture of her breasts after treatment for cancer.

Facebook VS Free Speech

Suzanne felt her photo was tasteful and very helpful to woman who were struggling with self acceptance of their body image post  treatment.  Facebook reviewed the complaint and determined that her photo did not fit into the facebook community guidelines.  https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards.

Social media platforms such as facebook and instagram allow pics of breasts as  long as the nipples are covered.  According to facebook, the only acceptable nipple exposure allowed would be what  “they” determine as “art”.

birth_of_venus_botticelli

If it is not art, but a selfie of your bare beauties you must cover the nipples.  If you want, you can cut and paste a man’s nipples over your nipples in the photo. This has been determined to be acceptable for social media platforms like twitter, instagram, and facebook.  There are even nipple templates online that you can use for your convenience.

Legally, the nipples are considered lewd. Exposure of your twins sunny-side up in public, can get you arrested in many states in the US.

Gotopless.org  created the hashtag #freethenipples and just recently aired their documentary “Free the Nipples”  a few days before the protest took place on Venice Beach. Suzanne Whang took it a step further on facebook by creating the hashtag #freethevowels, because profanity is acceptable on social media if you replace the vowel with another symbol like this “F#ck”.

2015-08-23 19.26.06

The catalyst for gotopless.org  started back in 1992 with the case People VS Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss. The New York Court of Appeals ruled in favor of two women who were arrested with five others for exposing their breasts in a Rochester park, holding the law void as discriminatory.  The ruling was put to the test in 2005, when Jill Coccarro bared her breasts on Delancey Street in New York, citing the 1992 decision, and was detained for twelve hours. She subsequently successfully sued the city for $29,000.

2015-08-23 16.06.42

In 2007, Go Topless, a national organization supporting gender equality in shirtlessness laws, established Go Topless Day. Dozens of women protest – often topless – in thirty cities around the United States, promoting equal rights to be shirtless.

2015-08-23 15.54.24

Go Topless was formed in the state of Nevada by a former French auto-racing journalist Claude Vorilhon, currently known as Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, a UFO religion.

I also, became interested in covering this protest with Freedom Of Joyce media because I had noticed women in the US, and other countries protesting topless with messages written across their chests rather than pieces of cardboard or banners.

Take notice that circles of black ink have been drawn over the nipples in this photo, which means one should be able to share it on facebook or instagram with no penalties.

The video below is the trailer for FOJ Media’s coverage of the Go Topless Day rally and protest that took place in Venice Beach  August 23, 2015.  You can watch the  full video for only $1.99.  Click here to purchase and view now. 

Women protesting topless or nude is nothing new.  According to legend, Lady Godiva rode nude on a horse through the streets of England in order to to gain a remission of the oppressive toll imposed by her husband on his tenants.

Perhaps, the courage of woman to bare all to change the world is just what we need right now.  Changing the world one breast at at time.

Freedom Of Joyce on Tour goes to #Hawksfest 2015 with Live Stream

In the summer of 2013, I decided to create a radio show titled “Freedom Of Joyce”, and my intent was to also to do a stand-up comedy show with the same title. I took some publicity shots on the balcony of where I lived and created a facebook fan page, and within six months “Freedom Of Joyce” aired on Revolution Radio.

A few weeks ago the owner of Revolution Radio Nighthawkk called into the show, and asked me to perform stand-up comedy at Hawskfest, and open up for his Black Sabbath Tribute Band called Black Sunday. Of course I said, “Yes.” 

I starting thinking how I wasn’t able to make it last year, and thought there are probably people all over the world whom listen to RR, who wish that they could go to Hawksfest, but can’t because they live too far away. So, having had past experience with live streaming protests, comedy tours, road trips to Hempfest in a old truck fueled by vegetable oil, and Freedom Of Joyce shows…I came up with an idea. Why not have a pay per view live stream of Hawksfest where you will see interviews, all the bands, and myself performing Freedom Of Joyce stand-up routine? Sounds like a blast to me.

The video below was originally live streamed in Hollywood CA with Revolution Radio host Steven D. Kelley, Superman, and myself. It was live streamed off of my cell phone, of course we will have better equipment for Hawksfest. 

As you know, Revolution Radio is 100% listener supported, so I will be donating 20% of the proceeds to Revolution Radio. If you think about it, this tour can have a very positive outcome. For example, if 20,000 people pay $10 to view one day of Hawksfest the revenue is $200,000 in one day. Theoretically, Revolution Radio would receive $20.000 per day for three days of broadcasting adding up to $60,000 in donations to Revolution Radio. Can we do it? Why not?!!

Freedom Of Joyce On Tour!

I am doing the “Freedom Of Joyce on Tour & Hawksfest 2015 Pre Show Party Bash” to kick things off. I need to test the software etc. The show will be August 22, 2015 from 4pm to 8pm PST & 7pm to 11pm EST. The cost will only be $5.99 to view. I will be inviting all of  my groovy friends to join the broadcast from radio hosts, activists, comedians, musicians, and one or two aliens. Who knows? Anything could happen!

All universal beings are welcome, to join our featured Cannabis Round Table with activists from around the world! Let’s get this party started. Get your ticket today! Click here to purchase virtual ticket.
