Call for manuscript reviews

Project ONE: I don't have a comedy shtick like being Stephen Colbert's token African-American friend, so I'm trying for the David Sedaris route of writing essays in a standup comedy style, then touring and charging people money to hear me read the book they buy at the book signing after the show. Now I just need a draft and a literary agent with gonads of steel.

Project TWO: My comedy workshop is sold out again, and the handout is now 36 pages long. I'm calling for reviews of the handout to turn it into a book manuscript. If'n you're interested, just go to and e-mail questions, comments, changes and deletions to me at basilwhite aatt basilwhite d0t c0m.

Your questions would be extremely helpful in repurposing the content for a book. Yes, you. I might even have a little reward prize package for a randomly-selected winner among all the commenters.

You can also post questions/additions/changes/deletions as comments here, and I'll strikethrough them as they're incorporated into the draft.

Thank you in advance for your thinking.

Basil White
