Novelist Leland Cheuk has taken the brave step from the solitary writer’s den to the comedy stage. He discusses dealing with New York City comedy audiences who’ve seen it all and how the two creative pursuits differ, before getting sidetracked by Downton Abbey talk.
During Breaking News, Paul discusses Occupy the SEC, The Pentagon’s $51 Billion ‘Black’ Budget, the taxpayer-funded fringe science funhouse that is DARPA, and an Unidentified Flying “Egyptian eye” hovering over pastures in Georgia. He also remembers Santa Cruz songwriter Cassidy Meijer, who passed away this past weekend.
Leland Cheuk‘s writing has appeared in publications such as Spinner, 7×7.com, CellStories, Punk Planet, Is Greater Than and Mostly Fiction, and his book reviews appear regularly in The Rumpus. Cheuk has also been a MacDowell Colony Fellow. He is working on a novel and a collection of stories.
