Jeff Cohen There's a lot to be learned for any kind of entertainer by visiting the theme parks in Orlando, Florida. And that's exactly what I'm going to tell the IRS when they ask how a dinner at the Sci-Fi... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen WINTER GARDEN, FL--I'm taking a few days to enjoy not being in New Jersey in February with my family, so this dispatch is being typed a while early. If somehow it has become irrelevant in the interim (like... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Dear Email Scammers: I've been receiving your product, unwillingly, for some time now, and I feel you could be doing better. Quite frankly, one would have to be a baby giraffe of below-average intelligence (for baby giraffes) to... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Sometimes something appeals to your sensibility. It's a piece of art or entrainment that's aimed right between your eyes, and it doesn't happen that often, so you want to jump on the opportunity when it arises. Such it... Continue reading

Lynne, I honestly don't believe in too far. When the French locked up a "comedian" who traffics in anti-Semitism right after the Charlie Hebdo attack, I thought it was wrong and continue to think it's wrong.

Jeff Cohen 1. I will not follow your cat. 2. I will not follow you just because you follow me. I have to know who you are. I'm funny that way. 3. I will feel free to post about my... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen (That's me on the right!) Personally, I have little to complain about with the year just ended. Yes, there are tweaks I'd have made here and there, not everything was perfect, but professionally and personally, I'd have to... Continue reading
Jeff Cohen It is that strange time, that limbo between Christmas and mid-January, when the only thing that's going to happen is that nothing is going to happen. One can debate the merits of a system that creates a de... Continue reading
