A StarKid Is Born: Joe Moses in the New York Times Magazine
Plus, the Joe Moses starter kit. All by me in this week’s magazine!
Shout out to the People’s Improv Theater and to Jaime Lyn Beatty and (especially) to Brian Holden, who gave me an amazing interview that sadly ended up on the cutting room floor. ICU Tessa Netting.
If you’re a Starkid fan and like the Internet Famous piece about Joe, please comment on the Times site! It helps them let me write more about them if the editors see a big response.
Maybe I’ll put some bonus material here if people are interested?

My second ‘Famous on the Internet’ column!
