I humbly request that you attend the New York Television Festival screening of Johnny Berlin, a delightful film which features my name in the credits.
Even if my name were not in the credits I would urge you to see this film as it is unusual and entertaining. Much more entertaining than the “comedy” group I saw mocking D-Day casualties a few weeks ago in the Lower East Side.
If you live in New York it will be quite easy to attend the screenings since it is in New York and you live here. If you live elsewhere, please book a flight at your expense or try your hand at fractional jet ownership.
All that’s important is you attend the screening of Johnny Berlin, a refreshingly funny film directed by Dominic DeJoseph; executive-produced by Michael Stipe and Jim McKay; produced by Ted Green and most important to me, me.
Johnny Berlin is the true story of John Hyrns, who Variety describes as “at once fascinating and vaguely troubled.” We all know guys like Johnny – intelligent, confused, under-employed, and considering moving to Phnom Penh to write the Great American Novel.
Variety gave the film a lovely review. It was well-received at the SilverDocs Film Festival. We hope it will be well-received here. That’s where you come in.

You, my surly friend, are on the roll.Sur(e)ly, location is no problem,eh?
This is the first time I’ve been urged by both Brian Sack _and_ Michael Stipe, via their respective websites, to go see the same film.
Well, at least, the first since “Crossroads” three years ago.
i live in LA and am in beween jets so can’t see the flick…ebay is my only theater and while i loved “brotherhood of the leather pants” ,a gig by sacks, it left me a little empty and wanting more…..will there be more? should i buy little black dress?
What a cute website you have here! And I bet you have a cute baby too!
Watched the documentary on the Doc.channel last night and absolutely loved it. At the end we all did imitations of the lines and at one point, my friend came up with this line with Johns’ accent:” Bangkok? I didn’t know that there was such a place, I thought that it was something that you did”……… I think that John would appreciate that line cause it was funny as hell…
I could listen to this guy ramble on all day – mundane but quirky and intelligent.
