So much trouble in the world. – Bob Marley
Case in point, it turns out that someone posted a homophobic comment using my name on another Toronto comedy blog:
Moreover, they put a link back to blogTO, whom I write a weekly article for. Perhaps he/she was hoping that someone would report the comment back to them and get me fired. Well, they were right – but only in part. The owner of blogTO brought the comment to my attention, I told him it wasn’t me, and that was that.
Now, I don’t mind if people don’t like my comedy. I don’t mind that they tell me I suck. I can handle that. But impersonating me on another blog? That speaks to motive and planning. I think it’s unfortunate that someone is trying to defame me, but I guess that’s showbiz, eh?

You’re living like – positive in a bracket

There are two ways to have the biggest building: build it, or tear everyone else’s down.
