Yes, of course, size matters to Donald. It matters more than anything. That’s why he’s always showing us just how truly small he is. Here’s the truth: No one wanted to go to Trump’s inauguration. He couldn’t even give the tickets away. He’s not an inspiring figure unless you mean inspiring outrage. He’s insulted just… Continue reading
Congressman Alan Grayson asked me to be his Communications Director on Capitol Hill. I accepted the offer and I start Tuesday April 19, 2016. Because of this gig I will stop writing my weekly column and have put Cultish on hiatus until 2017. The Congressman is not running for re-election, so my job ends in… Continue reading

Steam from my sobs plume around my head as I rifle through my pockets. I can’t find my bus pass! Panic consumes me. What am I going to do? The streetcar I’m supposed to take creeps up King Street on this wintry weekend before Halloween. What did I do with it?! I’m here in Toronto… Continue reading
I’d like to answer some of the responses I’ve gotten since my story aired on This American Life last week. First off, to the AAers who have accused me of “violating the traditions”: Calm down. AA is not a secret society. It’s not the Masons. That cited tradition, a custom really, pertains to AA advertising…. Continue reading
This is from the March 2011 issue of Editor and Publisher. By Rob Tornoe An irreverent yet unassuming humorist, Tina Dupuy, syndicated by Cagle Cartoons, has been making waves in newspapers across the country since starting her weekly column back in 2010. An obsession with famed San Francisco Chronicle satirist Art Hoppe led Dupuy down… Continue reading
Tom Ferguson was an actor. You’ve never heard his name. You wouldn’t have recognize him if you sat next to him at a restaurant. He was a B-movie character actor. I used to introduce him as the consummate redneck sheriff in at least five movies with “bikini” in the title. It was an exaggeration, of… Continue reading

Sure you’re not moonlighting as a lesbian bride? No. But feel free to continue to pass along that rumor. It could only help my… Continue reading
I seem to be getting a lot of traffic from the wikipedia page about the Children of God and I just figured out why – there’s a documentary about it on MSNBC right now. Anyway, how does one come into this world in a fanatical religious cult and then end up a humorist? I ask,… Continue reading
Okay, this site was down due to some unspecified tech issues. I blame it on gay marriage in California. That and the spike in tux rentals. It’s an epidemic. Anyway, the site is back up. I am diligently blogging daily at Mediabistro’s FishbowlLA. Feel free to stop by and say hi.
In case you missed it on TV – I was on channel 35’s LA Cityview’s show about politics and comedy. You can go to the site and on the right side there is a link for show #36. Just click that and watch. The producer said it was the funniest show they had ever done…. Continue reading
Not to degrade anyone’s opinion of the LA Weekly, but they hired me to do some local stories. One on the Silver Lake Meadow and another on the Pico-Olympic One Way. I’ll post more…later.
