No fancy doorman, no mints on pillows or gold seals on the toilet paper … only guaranteed entertainment from three talented “Hotel” guests: actress Diane Farr; columnist Mark Bazer; and standup comedian Greg Schwem.
For something completely unique on the humor scene, TMS’ Humor Hotel each week plays host to one of these talked-about writers. Their 600-word columns rotate through the package on a monthly basis, covering pop culture, current events, relationships, the workplace, personal narratives and some out-of-the-blue takes on contemporary society. They’ll make a four-star connection with readers navigating the vagaries and absurdities of day-to-day life.
Diane Farr: Best known for her appearances on TV’s “Californication,” “Numb3rs” and “Rescue Me,” Farr is also the author of the best seller “The Girl Code” and writes for many national magazines, including Mademoiselle, Marie Claire and GQ.
Mark Bazer: A nationally syndicated columnist who examines cultural trends, politics and the eccentricities of family life with a dry wit and unexpected perspective, Bazer also hosts Chicago’s popular live “The Interview Show” and guest hosts on WGN radio.
Greg Schwem: Greg Schwem is a husband, father and veteran standup comedian who specializes in finding funniness in how we cope with technology and the stresses of modern life. He frequently performs his show, “Comedy With a Byte,” for Fortune 500 companies, and recently published a book, “Text Me if You’re Breathing: Observations, Frustrations and Life Lessons From a Low-Tech Dad.”
