Something For All Of Us

Part 8 of my memoir is up at scrivel . That's the me part.

Here's the you part:

Subj: Comedy contest
Date: 12/8/2008 2:15:27 PM Pacific Standard Time

Hi, Suzy. I'm writing to tell you about something I thought would be of interest to you or your readers - a comedy writing contest. Philips Norelco is teaming up with to find the best body grooming tales in a new scriptwriting contest. Two lucky winners will have their scripts, or “Manalogues,” professionally produced and posted to the award-winning Shave Everywhere Web site.

Beginning December 3, 2008 and running through January 2, 2009 guys can submit their stories at I don't know if you've seen the Manalogues yet, from the same people that brought you "the bathrobe guy," but I hope you check it out. They're performed by Bryan Callen of MadTV. And you can check out the “Body Groomers Bare All” contest section on the site to see how the writers from Funny or Die tackled this hairy topic. Visitors to will determine 10 finalists by popular vote from which two winners will be selected by the writers from Funny or Die. The grand-prize winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to be on location in New York City for the script’s production, and one runner-up will score a selection of Philips consumer electronics and personal care products.

Thanks so much for your time! We're trying to let as many people as possible know about this in time to meet the deadline. Please let me know if you have any questions!

  3. I would love to try to write for this. It's like the last thing I would think I could write, which might make it a fun exercise.

    you lost me at manalogues...only for men? Fuck that. What about female body grooming...I have a few stories about that...

  5. I'm only funny in a, "What the hell was she talking about?" kind of way so I doubt that I'll be submitting anything, but I'm looking forward to reading your Memoir!
