Where will I be next week? DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS! See what I did there? I took the name of a popular regional tune and worked into a promotional email. Yeah, I'm that good.

Anyhoo, let's get to the point: Next week I'll be doing a three-city swing through your glorious state--I figure this may be my last chance to perform in Texas before Rick Perry forces you guys to secede. So if you live in Austin, Houston or Dallas, please come on out to a show. These shows will be ONE NIGHT ONLY! So put down your BBQ and/or margarita and get yourself a ticket (or nine)!

The relevant dates/details:

Tuesday 06/02/09 - Austin, TX
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema
Time: 8:00pm
Admission: $15.00.
Box office: 512.219.5408.

Wednesday 06/03/09 - Houston, TX
The Houston Improv
Admission: $15.00.
Box office: 713.333.8800.

Thursday 06/04/09 - Dallas, TX

These shows are all a part of my "Au Contraire!" tour, in support of the life-altering DVD of the same name. It can be found and ogled over here:

And if you would like to see a preview or just peruse other Finnegan-related nonsense, go to!

That's all for now, Texas. Next week, we get silly!

My one hour comedy special, "Au Contraire!", debuts on Comedy Central tonight at 11pm est.

Man it feels good to type that. It also makes me feel like I might crap my pants. But mostly, it feels good.

I'm not going to waste a bunch of your time here. Please tune in. It's not just that I think you'll enjoy the special (you will!), it's just that...well...

Look I promised the police I wouldn't talk about this, but Comedy Central has kidnapped my five year old son. It's true. They tell me that unless "Au Contraire!" gets at least a .8 Neilson rating, I will never see little Timothy again. Those people are heartless bastards and they mean business! I see no other option but to play ball, so I'm asking...nay, BEGGING you to tune into Comedy Central tonight at 11pm EST. Barring that, you can set your DVR recording devices. Please, people--Timothy doesn't have his inhaler. HOW LONG CAN HE POSSIBLY SURVIVE????

If for some reason you care nothing about my dear son's life, you can still pre-order the full "Au Contraire!" DVD on Amazon. It comes out this Tuesday, May 12th. It's 33% longer than what will air on Comedy Central tonight and it includes all sorts of kooky extras. Go here:

Or, if you don't want to have to look at my stupid Irish head, the album version is currently available for download on iTunes.

What else is there to say?
