Dynasty Dygest: April 25th



Oh Darlins, 

Sharpen your horns and get ready for some bull, cause it’s Taurus season, hunnnnnies, and we’re ready to charge into it with gusto. Last week was as lovely and varied as a spring bouquet ‘round these parts. Hosting our first JFL Showcase was a treat, and we got were introduced to some amazing new talent, poutine it all on the line for their comedy career! (Not exactly but we are REQUIRED by law to make a poutine joke and this felt more than passable.)  WHO WILL WIN AND GO TO MONTREAL? We have no idea and have nothing to do with that, but we’re rooting for everyone…. especially our favorites. Who we can’t name but we can wink about ;) ;) ;) We also had the full-on pleasure of seeing TOM KENNY & The Hi-Seas LIVE at the fabulous DANA GOULD Hour! What a thrill! Tom Kenny is every bit the charming and electric showman you’d hope for, AND he brought THREE flarkin' flautists. (Yes! We’re bragging!)  Friday got trippy with SHANE MAUSS’s science talk about MDMA and then ANNE LANE’s Variety Hour which provided the theater’s first opportunity to clean up fish guts. (It took the LA Philharmonic 14 years to claim this important milesetone, so we're well on our way to something.) Saturday we put on a train themed Dynasty Tonight for the ages, complete with a be-kerchiefed and engineer-hatted staff, railway soundscapes, a killer lineup and THE PIGMAN presenting a cathartic round of PIG WHACK. 

Now, Passover has passed (as far as Jamie knows) and Easter has risen (as far as Vanessa knows) and here we are with a week of spring flings for ya! TONIGHT we are so excited to celebrate the one year anniversary (the paper anniversary!) of TEAM COCO’s UP & UP! We’re so grateful for a year of wonderful shows with this team. How are they celebrating? With this ridiculous line-up: the marvelous and unfairly good looking host MOSES STORM! MARIA BAMFORD! ANDY RICHTER! FLULA BORG! JAMES ADOMIAN! ADAM CAYTON-HOLLAND! VIR DAS! The band STRANGE HOTELS! Sheeesh! That’s how ya do it! Come on down!

WEDNESDAY is our favorite midweek treat, WORKJUICE WEDNESDAY! It’s improv from the cast of the legendary Thrilling Adventure Hour. You never know what they’re gonna do next! And if you do, then you’re psychic and should monetize that! Or not, if that makes you feel weird. This week's cast includes JANET VARNEY, ANNIE SAVAGE, HAL LUBLIN, MARK GAGLIARDI, and special guest monologist, JAMES URBANIAK! 
THURSDAY we’re so happy to have the sweetiest sweetie that ever sweetied, JOSH GONDELMAN for his Dancing on a Weeknight album release! He’s gonna tell jokes, and so are his friends. Friends like DANIELLE PEREZRHEA BUTCHERCHRIS GARCIA and more! And then at 10pm, it’ll be verrrry spoooooky with Ghost Town Podcast live! (About the dead!) Join hosts REBECCA LEIB and JASON HORTON and have some fun gettin’ creeped. 

FRIDAY we’ve got the Friday 40 with DAVE HOLMES and SCOTT GIMPLE featuring special guests AISHA TYLER and LUKE NULLSATURDAY the folks from Voyager Institute, Friday Night Frights, and Secret 16 present 90s NIGHTMARES: A 16mm Horror Film Marathon!  The lineup is a secret! The genre and time frame and way of presenting are NOT. Come join the terrifying fun! SUNDAY it's time to bask in the glory of JANEANE GAROFALO! She’s been a feature in some of our favorite films, a shining gem on some of the best shows, and now she’s going to be at at the Dynasty. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? If you can’t, remember, seeing is believing. So come, see, believe. 

Knick-knack piggywhack, 

Jamie & Vanessa

Dynasty Dygest: April 16th



Where does the time go? DOES it go? Or are we just all spinning within our own concepts of time, recycling days and interactions until our “life” on this plane ends. Anycheewwwwww, we had a great week regardless of which idea of time you subscribe to, kicked off by one of our favorite Dynasty Tonight’s to date! CHELSEA PERETTI lit up the stage (with our lantern no less!) DREW DROEGE is the best friend we all want, FORTUNE FEIMSTER made power moves without her shoulder pads, it was perfect start to finish, and we sat in the back row and basked in how great people are. And DynaPop. The BYRON BOWERS Experience brought us into Byron’s world, complete with crickets and stars and mushrooms and parents with very liberal approaches to family albums. Thursday we had the pleasure of getting to know author, idea-man, and drive-in movie owner, JOSH FRANK at his book release party for Giraffes on Horseback Salad. We found out exactly how one completes a lost Marx Brothers & Dali film, turns it into a book, and scores and illustrates it. (It involves TIM HEIDECKER, tons of excitement, patience, collaboration, and a Japan-based big band.) The evening was completed by reading a few of the scenes with a sur’reallly dreamy cast! The SKLAR BROTHERS were born to play the Marx Brothers, DAVE FOLEY is guilty of being a delightfully confounded judge, and indignant looks really good on KATE MICUCCI. Saturday was powered by women and it was powerfullll, honeys (who run the world?)! With CAMERON ESPOSITO’s hour and Wild Horses with special guest ANGELA TRIMBUR, twas an embarrassment of riches. 

This week we’ve got something new, something true, something “woo!,” and something “spoo”ky for you! (Listen, we know that sentence isn’t great, but writing these every week gets tedious and sometimes we just try to have something FUN!) TONIGHT come and see the funniest faces of the future, TODAY! We’re excited to host a JFL New Faces Showcase, so come by and see LA's next batch of hilarity makers before they blow up and are known as THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE ON THE EARTH PLANET. WEDNESDAY we’re gonna get realllll personal with MO COLLINS, BEN GLEIB, BRANDON WARDELL, LIZZY COOPERMAN and of course, LINDSAY AMES in her show My Diary. 

THURSDAY we’ve got the legendary DANA GOULD in the house with his legendary podcast The Dana Gould Hour LIVE! If that wasn’t enough to shoo you from the crannies of your home: 1) Shame on you! 2) Here’s more bait; he’s bringing along EDDIE PEPITONE, BLAINE CAPTACH, JOHN ENNIS annnnnd music by Spongebob’s own TOM KENNY with his band Tom Kenny and the Hi-Seas

This FRIDAY (as all Friday’s should be) is about gettin’ weiiiiird, baby! At 8pm we have Stand Up Science with SHANE MAUSS! It’s the perfect excuse to learn and or laugh, whichever you need an excuse for, though let it be known we thing BOTH of these actions are completely beyond reproach) as comedian Shane Mauss pivots between TED-type talks from real scientists, and comedian-type sets from real comedians! This month the scientists are going to be speaking on MDMA (Street name MOLLY! Pretty vanilla street name, huh? It’s like if heroin’s street name was Gennifer. Maybe it is!? We are not and have never sold ourselves as drug culture aficionados! No offense of course to the fine people who do stand on that platform.)  At 10pm we are thrilled to have The Strange and Unusual Variety Hour for the Recently Deceased from the brilliant mind of ANNE LANE (Rick and Morty staff writer! UCB Outside Dog darling! Groundlings alum! PERSONAL FRIEND!) so come on down to the already spooky and presumed haunted theater to see comedy, music, tricks, demonic possessions and macabre delights of all types! Hosted by Anne as LYDIA DEETZ and flanked by the talents of MATT COOK, NATALIE PALIMIDES, STEVE LITTLE, MITCH SILPA and more! Juggling! Burlesque! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!? 

SATURDAY is 4/20! And you know what THAT means! (Wait, maybe we ARE drug culture aficionados?!) It means it’s April 20th and that date turned into numbers is all about…. doobies. We have a show for you that will get you feeling high on life, regardless of where and how you procure that high. Engine 420, hosted by a REAL* train engineer, is a variety show that’ll make you go “oohhhh yeah, man.” Featuring the talents of JACQUELINE NOVAK, BRENT WEINBACH, CHRIS LAKER, MATT MCCARTHY, and more TBA!

SUNDAY in some cultures is Easter. In some cultures it is just Sunday. In ALL cultures it marks the day before the time when Cadbury Creme eggs are at their absolute cheapest. We hope you have a great day full of the meaning you want it to have

Love & Other Drugs, 

Jamie and Vanessa

GO DAY NOTES: 3/3/19

Go Day! is Dynasty Typewriter’s monthly dose of enchantertainment™, designed to excite and inspire you to GO into your life with gusto! It's a free event for our community where we have artists and creators and entrepreneurs that we like come educate and inspire our audience. Last month we had an amazing line-up of speakers including writer Bruce Ferber (Home Improvement), showrunner Brent Forrester (The Office), Catherine Coan (Taxidermist, Artist, Poet, Professor), Jonathan Kidder (Creator, Artist, Intuitive), and Vikki Flam (Comedian and Jamie’s Mom). As always, it was hosted by Jamie Flam and Vanessa Ragland (Artistic Directors at Dynasty Typewriter). Writer Emily Popper was in residence to take notes for this edition.


  • Collaborating with other artists and exploring art forms outside your comfort zone are a great way to broaden your work. (Catherine Coan)

  • “People like people who are into stuff.” We are generally drawn to other people with weirdly committed passions. (Catherine Coan)

  • It doesn’t matter how old you are, just get started.” (Catherine Coan)

  • Vanessa & Jamie ask the crowd about their response to Dynasty’s new “Coffee” option, and along with 3 other people, I give an emphatic thumbs up! Vanessa & Jamie seem less than impressed with the response.

  • Jonathan Kidder, a psychic puppeteer has brought a trunk full of his hand puppet helpers.

  • As he talks about learning to accept his abilities during his childhood, Jonathan comments, “I was afraid to let my magic out.” Don’t be afraid to let your magic out – even if it scares you.

  • As if they rehearsed it, Jonathan comes back to Catherine’s theme of collaboration and talks about knowing who your tribe is. Jonathan defines “tribe” as the people who allow you to be yourself.

  • The talk progresses into a “reading” for a mildly reluctant Jamie. During the course of the reading they coin the term “Like-me-itis” – a condition that holds too many people back.

  • While talking about the throat chakra, Jonathan explains the importance of managing your choices right in between your head and your heart.

  • One insight that really lands with the crowd is the idea that the antidote for fear is gratitude. As a way of generating that gratitude, Jonathan suggests that each day before bed, you should ask yourself “Why was today the best day ever?”

  • Vikki Flam, Jamie’s mom is up next with photos of her cork-board outline and stuffed animal audience which prove she’s been taking Brent Forrester’s advice, even if she tends to call him “Brett.”

  • While discussing her hopes to give stand-up a try, Vikki points at Jamie and says “If you can take the leap, I can take the leap.” It instantly becomes my new mantra.

  • Echoing a point Catherine made about starting projects, Vikki says “It’s never too late to become what you might have been.” I believe her.

  • Finally, Vikki closes out her chat by accurately pointing out “Go-Day is not bullshit.” Vanessa vehemently denies that anyone ever thought it was.

  • Bruce Ferber, author and show-runner of the incredibly successful sitcom Home Improvement (among other things), sits down for an interview with Go-Day veteran Brent Forrester

  • Brent’s first question is about “breaking in” to showbiz and Bruce emphasizes that he took the time to write, arranging his life to make that possible.

  • Bruce describes himself starting out with no idea “how things were done” which turned out to be an advantage for him. It's a good reminder not to worry too much about what other people are doing.

  • Brent and Bruce talk about the importance of being able to work in a group as a TV writer (there's that collaboration theme again). After Brent describes the variety of writers who might make up a room. Brent describes (as a show-runner) sitting next to the “quiet” ones to help amplify their ideas in the room, and Bruce comments “the loudest person in the room isn’t always the funniest.”

  • Brent reminds Bruce of story writing advice he shared when they were both on the same show and says he still uses it when he’s stuck: “A story is usually about two people – take two characters and put them at war with each other.”

  • Brent asks Bruce what makes a show like Home Improvement hugely successful and Bruce gives this recipe: 1) A likable star 2) originality and 3) hitting a cultural “moment” in just the right way.

  • Bruce tells a story about developing a line with Tim Allen and the result “A little lox goes a long way” becomes my second new mantra of the day.

  • Bruce uses a tennis analogy to talk about getting started on your own. He says when you’re playing on the court there are two people there, the guy hitting the ball and the guy in your head telling you that you suck. You need to learn to like yourself if you want to get anywhere.

  • It’s becoming a Go Day tradition for Brent Forrester wrap up the day and he does his usual amazing job.

  • Brent says being brave enough to research and write journalistically about things you haven’t done and groups you’re not a part of is important for the growth of a writer. He says if you can find the courage to do that, you can eliminate the competition.

  • Brent often mentions Judd Apatow’s advice to tell highly personal stories, but today he adds something new. He describes sharing his concerns with Apatow about encouraging people to try for a career in show business when it’s so hard to be successful. Apatow’s response is that you should always encourage people to make art as long as you are encouraging them to do it therapeutically and honestly. Judd Apatow has been added to my list of personal heroes, I will defend him to the death.

  • Brent offers to answer questions, so I raise my hand and ask how I can get myself to write the last 7000 words of my 80,000 word novel before I attend a pitching event. I’m avoiding the writing, so Brent suggests I do a ”vomit pass” which echoes something Bruce said earlier – “if you get something down it will get better.

  • Another writer asks about a project he’s just starting and Brent emphasizes how important it is to have friends who are also writers both for accountability and to remind yourself that what you’re writing about is INTERESTING to other people.

  • As always Brent reminds us to start creating art, whether it’s paying $200 and putting on your own show or taking that improv comedy class that scares you. I’m in!

  • Vanessa & Jamie thank our speakers, agree that coffee is important even if it’s difficult to provide and send us on our way. Only one month to the next Go Day!


The coffee is worth it and Apatow rules.

Dear Darlings,

We’re marching along at a quick clip here lately! The days are flying by, and we like things that fly. Like all the dang butter flutters trafficking up the Los Angeles sky lately <— topical! Oooh!  Last week’s March brought us Andy Zaltzman & his British podcast sensation The Bugle, made even MORE international by an Australian Skype sesh. Julio Torres' My Favorite Shapes had a triumphant sold-out return, proving that shape humor is timeless. Last week proved that Zach Sherwin’s Crossword show is legit down and across THE BEST SHOW. If you missed it, we found out in addition to being lovable, talented, and delightful, Pete Holmes and Lisa Loeb are also for-real smart. Must feel good to have it all! Sure feels good watching it! 

Speaking of watchin': Friday we were treated to Time Out LA’s Comics to Watch and oooh, honeys we loved it. Packed house with mostly new faces (Hey Time Out readers, you cute!) and a great lineup of truly talented people, with a big finish provided by Natalie Palamides' indelible Nate, spraying the audience with La Croix and other imagined fluids. Saturday was… just so LA. Sorry for saying that, but it truly was. We had the pleasure of hosting two shows with two of Los Angeles’ historic wowees™:   The Bob Baker Marionettes and Angelyne the Billboard Queen. There were dancing pink puppets, our favorite humanoid psychic diva ostrich Phoenix Kidder, Angelyne, her signature fan, and yes… her iconic pink corvette pulled right up to the curb of the theater. (SCROLL DOWN TO SEE A PIC OF ANGELYNE NEARLY DEFILING A FAMILY HEIRLOOM.) 

After Angelyne left the building, another LA staple entered, Ron Lynch’s Tomorrow Show- circus edition! Under the (projected) big top we saw more puppets (#blessed) dancing, shoe dancing, comedy, oddities, et cetera. Tomorrow fans, make sure you come to the Tomorrow show THIS SATURDAY  as it will be their last Dynasty show for a while! Come wish them a happy Dynasty hiatus in Dynasty-style (with popcorn.)  But now we’re getting ahead of ourselves, let’s start with….

TONIGHT: it’s the return of one of our favorite shows, with the best teams, and winner of overall best produced shebang in ShebangMag™. Yes, it’s Team Coco’s Up & Up hosted by the boy with the biblical super hero name, MOSES STORM! With a bonkers lineup of: MARK NORMANDRORY SCOVELSYDNEE WASHINGTONFAHIM AWAR! And everyone’s favorite grinning German DJ / comedic foil, FLULA BORG!

WEDNESDAY if something ails you, we have The Cure. We’re so excited to host the one year anniversary of JOEL KIM BOOSTER & BRENDAN SCANNELL’s show baby with these sparkling stars: SARAH SILVERMAN! SYDNEE WASHINGTON! JACQUELINE NOVAK! BIG DIPPER! and mooooore. 

THURSDAY SASHEER ZAMATA is bringing her Party Time back to the Dynasty! Always a good time, always the best host (hey girl) always the most fun lineups: this week with MITRA JOUHARIPATTI HARRISONSABRINA JALEES and ear vibes provided by DJ BREEZYEZ. Come get down! 

FRIDAY we’ve got TWO darlings for ya, at 8pm LINDSAY AMES’ My Diary with KEVIN NEALON, EMILY HELLERANTONIO MARZIALE, MOSES STORM, and LILIAN BOWDEN airing their dirty laundry- come get a whiff! (Sorry, that was v. yucky.)  Don’t you want to hear some of your favorite comics and personalities deepest and most awkward and private thoughts? OF COURSE YOU DO. Followed at 10pm by ANDY KINDLER’s Particular Show with RORY SCOVELWHITMER THOMASCHRIS GARCIA and MEGAN GAILEY (haven’t seen u since Austin girl! Hay!). 

SATURDAY we’ve got a matinee for you! We’re welcoming  TV Writers & Comedians: a competitive show that turns a stand-up comedy bit into a TV show. Comedians perform their sets in front of a panel of award-winning TV writers and show runners currently working in television. The TV writers then pitch potential TV shows based on the comedian’s material (pitches are improvised on the spot since the TV writers are seeing the performance for the first time). The winning TV pitch gets a prize: an opportunity to see their pitch come to life in production. JUICY PRIZE. COME SEE! With PAGE HURWITZ (Push It Productions) BECCA KINSKEY (Funny or Die) and ALBERT HOWELL (Tonight Show writer). Saturday eve brings us Maisel Goys Live: Saturday Night at the Gaslight KEVIN T. PORTER & ALICE WETTERLUND’s live version of The Marvelous Maisel Goys. Sorry guys n’ goys, we’re sold out!  At midnight we have the aforementioned Tomorrow Show <— remember! Last one here for a while, so get those tix! 

MONDAY Harmontown is in session, and TUESDAY you’ll be hearing from your Dyna-pen pals again.

Jamie's great grandpa and great uncle founded Angelus Typewriter in DTLA which would be the inspiration for the name... Dynasty Typewriter. 100 years later, by the magic of the lady of Los Angeles, here is another beautiful piece of this of this city, Angelyne, in Dynasty Typewriter, on top of Jamie’s great grandfather’s desk, poised to writhe.
Great news: Angelyne's crowd was as iconic looking as she was! PROOF in this gallery! If you don't like a shimmyin' pink cat, who even ARE YOU!?
