Why Our Club is Going to Jon's Head
by Annie

Hi everyone. It's been a while since I sent out a newsletter, so I thought I'd take this lovely Labor Day to labor a little for you. Read on for all the site updates and for a few added Jon news items. Let me know if you find any broken links. Thanks.

So I'm checking out the JSIA guestbook yesterday, and I find that someone has left this rather shocking entry (warning: profanity):

Name: The Voice of Reason
E-mail address: benkarlin@i'
Comments: May you all take a shit on Jon Liebowitz's bald spot.

And I think ... huh. Well, *that* is certainly rude. So I complained about it on the board. And this is what happened next.

Name: Annie
Homepage URL:
Comments: It's spelled LEIBOWITZ.

Name: Voice of Reason's Ex-Wife
E-mail address: benkarlin2@i'
Comments: Honey, you have to realize, just because you get off on taking shits on people's bald spots, not too many others share that passion.
;) Kel

Name: Voice of Reason's son
E-mail address: benkarlin,jr@i'

Comments: daddy? when r yoo cuming home? mommy says the hores gave you sifilis. whats sifilis? how come you dont pay for my docter? mommy says i need blud real bad. i cry all the time.
:p Annie

Name: One of the many voices in Voice of Reason's Head
E-mail address: benkarlinonastick@i'
Comments: A word to The Voice of Reason. Oh, you poor, stupid man. You may not have realized it, but you have just made a whole lot of enemies, my friend. This is definitely not an agency that you want to piss off. Just my two cents, Andrea.

So, what have we learned from this? One, for whatever it's worth, this person seems to like Ben Karlin, the TDS head writer. Two, never EVER piss off Andrea.

Annie, President

(?) Sept 3, Tues, NBC, 7 pm -- Diet Coke with Lemon Celebrates 40 Years of Laughter: At The Improv. From the NBC site: Jay Leno hosts this hilarious party held at the legendary Hollywood Improv on the Sunset Strip. With appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Arsenio Hall and D.L.. Hughley. Plus, historic clips of Richard Pryor, Andy Kaufman, Freddie Prinze and many more!
Note: Jon is participating in the Improv celebrations including his two live shows in October, so he might appear, but that is NOT confirmed.

(?) Sept 4, every Wednesday at 9:30 and 11 pm and every Saturday at 12 am and 9:30 pm, Comedy Central -- Contest Searchlight. Jon had a brief voice appearance on the premiere episode and was mentioned on the second episode, so it appears he may be a running theme. No confirmation on whether he will appear again, but you never know.

I have no idea how to get in, whether you need tickets, or if you need proof of alumni status. The site says, "Unless noted, all events are free and open to the whole University community," but I don't know how rigid they'll be on proof. If anyone has any more info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks to Joanna.
