I hope you'll come hang out with me and Mike Edison at Jimmy's No. 43 in the East Village, tomorrow, September 5, at 7pm, as we slap ourselves on the back for 100 big episodes of The Mike & Judy Show!
Over the two-plus years we've been doing the show we've welcomed writers like my pal/Snookie ghostwriter Valerie Frankel, the hilarious Michael Malice, the ladies of Bust Magazine, Rachel Shukert, Rachel Kramer Busssel, Ted Heller, Jesse Cannon, Michael Azzerad, STFU Parents' Blair Koenig, Zachary Lipez, the NY Times' Rosie Schaap, Maura Mag's Maura Johnston, cartoonist/writer Carolita Johnson, Jenni Miller, Jason Diamond and the Electric Literature crew, Lisa Carver, Kevin Seccia, Mike Albo, Mishka Shubaly, Lux Alptraum, Ed Hamilton, Anna David, the FANTASTIC Michael Gonzales, Max Tremblay, Melissa Petro, Todd Hanson, Joe Garden, Janet Ginsburg, Sheila McClear, Caryn Rose, Marty Beckerman, Kevin Walsh, Keith Elliot Greenberg, Mike McPadden, Rachel McPadden, Emily McCombs, Jerry Portwood, and surely a few people that have slipped my addled brain.
We've also welcomed fantastic musicians like Boss Hog, Princess Superstar (whose xmas rap remains my favorite xmas song of all time), Handsome Dick Manitoba, Andy Shernoff, Howie Pyro, Gary Lucas, Girl to Gorilla, Cudzoo and the Fagettes (who did a fab abortion acapella), Dean Rispler, Boxtopus, Mickey Finn, Rolling Stone Bobby Keys, Freshkills, Joe McGinty, Tom Clark, Peg Simone, Reid Paley (whose voice you might recognize from our intro) and teen Thai Sensation, Maggie Rosenberg.
We've also stuck with the Heritage Mission by hosting foodies like dashing wine guy Jean Luc Le Du, MasterChef Monti Carlo, Exchange Alley's Paul Gerard, Littleneck's Aaron Levcove, Nitehawk's Matthew Viragh, and Treats Truck's Kim Ima.
We were also lucky enough to host performers such as Catie Lazarus and Reverend Jen, the last real pornographer, Chip Maloney, artists Marguerite Van Cook, James Romberger, Cliff Mott (who did both our logo and my book, The Official Book of Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll Lists), and others.
I really tried to list everyone, but I am mortified to note that a few probably slipped my mind. Yell at me in the comments if you're one of the missing and I'll update.
