“I laughed so hard, I coughed up a lung.” (Peter Criss/Comedy Weekly)

“I’m quitting my day job.” (Robert Farrally/Farrally Brothers)

“The ‘mother’ character is so evil she makes Ann Coulter look like Bambi.”  (Hillary Clinton)

Episode Four of the 10-week series starts today – here’s a link to all of it: http://www.mydamnchannel.com/Horrible_People/Season_1/HorriblePeople1_533.aspx

Shooting extremely twisted video this Sunday night at our CES opening night party in Vegas inside the Palms hotel. Don Was is producing. Andy Milonakis is Andy-ing. The rest is going to have to get down on tape to be real. Guest stars abound.

Just saw an early cut of our new ‘soap opera’ series: HORRIBLE PEOPLE. Created by A.D. Miles.

Cookin’ with Coolio is in pre-production in LA.

Getting early cuts of our first animated series: INVASION and our new BEDTIME STORIES series from creator, Steve Kerper. He will launch the CARNIVAL OF STUFF channel coming up. His “HAPPY HANNUKAH” video blew up & made it into our Top 10 of 07.

Enough of us – another co-con deserves a standing ovation:

Filmmaker/Comedian to Live in IKEA Store for an Entire Week- Media Invited Tuesday, Jan 8 at 1pm
NEW YORK – Mark Malkoff, a filmmaker and comedian whose video “171 Starbucks” documented his visits to all of the coffee chain’s Manhattan stores in a single day, will live in an IKEA store in Paramus, N.J., for an entire week starting Monday, Jan. 7.
“My apartment has to be fumigated and I need to move out for several days,” said Malkoff, 31. “All of my friends have tiny studio apartments. Hotels in the city are too expensive. My apartment is 80 percent IKEA products anyway. Moving into an IKEA store makes sense.”
Miraculously, IKEA has agreed to let Malkoff live in its Paramus store for the week. Each night, Malkoff will post a video recap of his day at www.MarkLivesInIKEA.com, which will be up beginning Jan. 7.
“This isn’t a commercial for IKEA,” Malkoff said. “They are not paying me to do this. To me, it made sense for my living circumstance and I thought it would make an interesting video. IKEA is giving me 100 percent creative control of the video content, which is pretty amazing.”
Malkoff is best known for his video “171 Starbucks,” in which he is shown visiting and consuming purchases at each of the ubiquitous coffee chain’s locations in Manhattan in a single day. The stunt landed Malkoff on the “Today” show and on CNN, and made him the butt of one of Jay Leno’s monologue jokes.
MEDIA ARE INVITED TO MARK’S BEDROOM SET IN IKEA IN PARAMUS, N.J., ON TUESDAY, JAN. 8, AT 1 P.M. PLEASE RSVP TO mark@markmalkoff.com
Location:                                            For Press Inquires:
IKEA                                                   Mark Malkoff
100 Ikea Dr.                                       (646) 207-0728 (cell)
Paramus, NJ 07652                           mark@markmalkoff.com

Mark Malkoff is a comedian, writer and filmmaker. He has appeared as a guest on the “Today” show, CNN, Fox News Channel, ABC News, and Fox Business Network.

In July 2007, he produced and starred in a popular short video in which he visited and consumed purchases at all 171 Starbucks locations in Manhattan in one day. It can be viewed at www.171starbucks.com. Mark currently works as the audience coordinator on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” You can check out his work at www.markmalkoff.com
