Where are they now update

Through Jester's monthly shows calendar, the site has been able to show when performers and shows that were previously featured are turning up again. But it's occured to me that this doesn't quite capture when performers previously featured from shows in New York have gone on to Los Angeles and made their mark in TV and movies, so I'm also going to start using this blog space to call attention to some of that.

Lennon Parham (see interview, 5/20/08) and Jessica St. Clair (see review, 11/18/05), it was recently announced, are going to be prominent in an upcoming NBC sitcom, "BFF," debuting April 4.

Also, as you may have seen, Jason Mantzoukas (see interview, 9/9/07), who co-starred with St. Clair in the show reviewed and linked above, is also now L.A.-based, has been turning up in numerous shows, both as a writer and performer, including Fred Armisen's "Portlandia."

The Espresso Book Machine

The Espresso Book Machine

I found out about this in looking for interesting media ventures for one of my graduate classes, but thought it might also be of interest to readers of this blog and the Jester site.
