Josh and Tamra Show to “Head West Young Man”

July 30, 2008

Well kids the rumors are true. The Josh and Tamra Show are moving to Los Angeles.

It’s a very exciting time for the show, the people AND the puppets involved. I have been living in NYC for over 15 years now (and Tamra for 10)… and its time to move on. Our time in NYC has been a great experience, but very often in life, sometimes its nice to change it up, and spend $3000 to move your entire life to the other side of the country.

It’s a scary thing. Who knows what’s going to happen when we get there. It’s a big deal to toss it all and go west. But we are looking forward to the opportunities that lay in the earthquake filled sunsets.

But don’t worry I know what your saying:

“Josh and Tamra, you are such grounded down to earth, cool people, we don’t want to see you turn into LA assholes who think their shit doesn’t stink.”

Well not to worry, I promise you that we will remain to be the same nice folks you know and love even after we hit it big.

A few years from now, you will be more than welcome to attend one of our gala parties held at our plush Hollywood mansion. When you attend, please make sure to mind the guard dogs Rachel and Mr. Belvedere, and please remove your shoes before you enter our Asian themed living room, complete with a Mongolian human pelt rug and an oil painting of Retarded Baby above the imported Italian marble fireplace. Afterwards please join us in the parlor for an Indonesian pollip cocktail? What? Never had an Indonesian pollip cocktail? Pookie, did you hear that? This person has never had a in-pol-cock!!!! Oh you must try one, they are truly divine. What’s that I smell? Fresh roses? Oh no, that was me; I just took a huge dump. Well so nice to see you! (kisses on each cheek) Please don’t forget to tip the private valee on the way out.

Make sure you keep in touch.

And if you find yourself in the LA area, please let us know, we can do lunch.

And if you live in LA, find us and hook us up with your agent/manager.

If you had not heard by now the great Estelle Getty, best known from the popular 1980s and ’90s sitcom “The Golden Girls,” died on Tuesday. I thought she was already dead. Sorry, too soon?

I’ll miss her. I actually really liked her work in “Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot”. My dad used to work for a TV station that aired The Golden Girls show and he got a copy of the first episode script from the series, with Estelle’s autograph.

She really was a great comedian, and she set the standard for all of the women who followed her. Rest in peace golden lady.

“What’s next Josh & Tamra?”

Well, thanks for asking.

We are taking a few weeks off to enjoy the summer fun before it slips away , but then we are back at it to kick some butt at the 10th annual UCB Del Close Marathon . Our show is Sunday June 10th at 1:30 PM at the Hudson Guild Theater, 441 West 26th Street.

Hope to see you there.

What a great weekend in North Carolina

The Josh and Tamra Show just returned from two SOLD OUT shows at DSI (Dirty South Comedy Theater) in North Carolina. If you are ever in the Carrboro- Chapel Hill hood you must make a point to see shows at this place! 

Zach Ward and his theater host comedy year round. To say nothing of the sweet tea (so fucking good), DSI definitely did it up funny and right!! Josh put the puppets away and we performed with the cast of MISTER DIPLOMAT (right) on Friday night while we were in town. You can check out some of those pictures online.
