Max Lance is the only ex-stand-up comedian not working in advertising.

A student of writing for screen at television at the University of Southern California’s film school, Max enjoys chosing careers with secure and guaranteed paths to success.

The blog is updated daily when Max has a boring day job, and rarely when he doesn’t.

He is an Athiest Jew New Yorker living in Los Angeles. HeĀ hates L.A., but it’s where they make all the movies and TV shows, so he puts up with it. He writes things that are funny and sometimes offensive. When he says the things he writes he either gets laid or fired.

He goes to pub quizzes, microbreweries, pizza parlors, bagel shops and baseball games. New York, Buenos Aires and Paris are his favorite cities.
