    do you have an email list I can sign up for?

  2. My name is Marc Weingarten. I wanted to reach out to you regarding my recently published novel, Cape Comedy. Briefly, it’s a quirky, pop culture murder-mystery set in the world of stand-up comedy. The comedy community has really gotten behind it and I’ve been fortunate to get published endorsements from Saturday Night Live’s Kevin Nealon, Tom Dreesen, Bobby Slayton, Pam Stone, Alonzo Bodden, Bret Ernst, Blake Clark, and many others. I pasted the press release below with contact and web site info so you can have a more informed understanding. The link to Amazon can be accessed at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JRGJJJQ. Also, I’d be happy to make myself available to you for an interview. In light of the tragic death of Robin Williams, there is significant interest in the culture I write about in Cape Comedy. I knew and worked with Robin back in 1977-1980. In fact, the Miami Herald asked me to write an Op-Ed piece which was published in the Herald last Wednesday.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    The American comedy club scene is the birthplace of fame and occupies a significantly elevated status when it comes to defining American pop culture. It is the only place where you can witness an unknown Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld and Robin Williams carve genius from hunger for the price of two iced teas.

    After what seems a lifetime of living it, Marc Weingarten’s debut novel, Cape Comedy, is ready to explode the world of stand-up comedy and its underbelly into the souls of its fans and inhabitants … just not from the POV you might expect.

    The long awaited debut is finally here. Cape Comedy is not just a cover charge and two drink minimum in exchange for an evening of laughter. If the heartbreaking loss of Robin Williams teaches us nothing else, it’s precisely as Weingarten writes in the novel:“Comics are blessed for having the gift, and cursed for having to fuel it.” Comedian Bruce Baum emphasized Weingarten’s take on the culture in a published testimonial: “Marc has written a novel that’s Gatsby-like in the way it unveils layers of the comedy world most people don’t know exist.”

    This quirky, pop culture mystery represents a deep reveal into the anger and pain from which our laughter is gifted to us. Pam Stone, the co-star of the ABC TV show Coach, said this: “If the general public had any idea of the behind-the-scenes stories that have gone on in comedy clubs across the nation … oh, Lordy. Most comics have kept our mouths shut, only because someone else has equal dirt on us to spill. Marc Weingarten, in his debut novel, unabashedly shares some of the raw truths and appallingly funny accounts in this fictional (or, is it?), comedic setting … pulled, I’m sure, from years in the biz.”

    A comedy pioneer, Marc became the youngest comedy club owner in America when, at 26 years-old, he and his partners bought the historic Ice House in Pasadena, California. During that time, Marc developed working relationships with some of America’s most prominent comedy stars, agents and network executives. From there, he joined legendary L.A. radio personality Rick Dees, who asked Marc to help develop and produce The Rick Dees Comedy Concerts. That association led to seven sold-out shows at such venues as the Universal Amphitheater, Pasadena Civic Auditorium, and Long Beach Terrace Theater. Stars including Jay Leno, Howie Mandel, Brad Garrett, Ellen Degeneres, Bill Maher and Kevin Nealon were featured in Marc’s productions.

    Marc’s credits include being hired as a staff writer and talent coordinator for ABC’s Into the Night starring Brad Garrett. He’s performed in Las Vegas and major theaters and comedy clubs nationwide and has been a voting member of the GRAMMY’s since 1997 for producing the albums of George Lopez, Richard Jeni, Bobby Collins and Jeff Wayne.

    For interviews and print reviews Marc is available by phone at 818-571-6996 and by email at marcfunny@msn.com.
