This past weekend, while visiting in Portlandia to perform some comedy shows, I had the pleasure and pain of doing a guest spot on one of my FAVORITE comedy web series, THE SPICY NEWS.  If you haven't heard of it, Spicy News is a weekly pop culture wrap up where comedians act as fake news anchors.  Sure, this isn't the first show like that, but the difference here is, before reading their one-liners, the comedians have to eat an ENTIRE, RAW HABANERO PEPPER.  Try to tell a Kardashian pun with your face on flames.  The Portland-based show features several local comics as well as visiting performers and more household names such as Ron Funches and (my favorite person) Kyle KinaneThe Spicy News Network also offers other delights such as SPICY INTERVIEWS in which comedians are forced to ask each other pointless questions after both have eaten a habanero (you can check out the greatest example of this featuring comedians Chris Thayer and Pete Holmes here).  So without further adieu, here is my dance with the devil aka my episode of The Spicy News...
