EPISODE 72: ELIOT GLAZER
We go “deep, deep undercover" when funnyman Eliot Glazer shows up in the “sixth floor bathroom of Bobst” to offer a few outstanding and epic worst gigs. From slaving away at the Entenmann’s Factory in the backwater of Bay Shore, Long Island, to dealing with the freshman roommate from Hell, to gardening while listening to the Rent soundtrack - and all of this fuels Eliot’s creative video visions (and podcast) - this one’s jam-packed with serious L.I. lore, references to specific old age homes, NYU cruising spots, Joey Violence, and laffs galore. You’re gonna have to take 495 to exit 43 on this week’s WORST GIG EVER!

Imagine my surprise this morning when I woke up to an email from Tiana Parker’s mom, letting me know they were in NY today! (If you remember, Tiana was sent home from her school a few weeks ago because of her locs) We went out to lunch and had a really wonderful time chatting about school, NY and of course natural lhair! Tiana is so funny, smart, confident and incredibly sweet. I’m so honored that she considers me one of her hair inspirations. THIS is why I make videos! Meeting her has definitely been a career highlight.
