Name: Joseph Scrimshaw
Website: ”I blog about Twitter at josephscrimshaw.com and I tweet about blogging at@JosephScrimshaw. I’m thinking of starting a Tumblr account that would only be jokes about Google+. Recently, I connected my Foursquare account to my LinkedIn account, so now no one knows where I am.”
What’s your job?
“I’m a comedian, writer, and stay-at-home dad who does not have any children. I performed on Jonathan Coulton’s JoCoCruiseCrazy where I did naughty Star Trek jokes with my random audience volunteer Wil Wheaton.”
Other than your job, what are your claims to fame?
“I used to work at the Kinko’s in Downtown Minneapolis. One night many years ago a frenzied man rushed in at 11 p.m. and said I had to make 17 copies of the final proposal for the Hiawatha light rail in 15 minutes or there would be no light rail in the Twin Cities. Obviously, I succeeded.”
What’s your relationship status?
“Dude, I am so married right now. You don’t even know.”
Where are you most likely to be seen?
“The Bryant-Lake Bowl, Moto-i, the Fitzgerald Theater, my home, or other places with alcohol and/or stages.”
Where are you least likely to be seen?
Where were you born?
“I wasn’t born in Minneapolis, but should anyone ever write a biography I would like there to be some controversy so I’m going to claim I was born in Minneapolis.”
What’s your ride?
“A Toyota Yaris that everyone tells me is ‘cute.’ If you could briefly date a car until an older badder car comes along, people would absolutely do that to my car.”
What’s the best way for someone to start a conversation with you?
“Challenge me to holding an entire casual conversation in which I am only allowed to respond by using quotes from Star Wars.”
