Joe Pera Talks With You is a difficult sell to people. Comedian Joe Pera stars in the show about a midwestern music teacher named Joe Pera. He has a quiet life and every episode talks with you, the audience, about things he finds interesting in the world. Episodes have included discussions about the intimate traditions of breakfasts in diners, the importance of finding a perfect chair, and the way you feel when you discover an amazing song (as Joe experiences when he first discovers The Who's 'Baba O'Riley', which is not actually named 'Teenage Wasteland').

The show was quietly amusing, but get into the vibe of the show and you'll find the most rewarding, spiritually fulfilling show on television. It's a show that celebrates the small things that make up our lives and how they define us and the way we engage with our communities.

Because the show was hard to describe and even harder to convince people to watch, Joe Pera Talks With You just got cancelled by Adult Swim after it's third season. It also streams in the US on HBO Max.

Here's Joe Pera:

"The more I learn how TV works, the more I realize that it’s kind of a miracle that our quiet, 11-minute show about rocks, beans, grocery stores, and breakfast crews got on the air and lasted as long as it did”

Vote 1: Potsie

He's got my vote. I don't even care what his policies are or who he is up against (note: I am also not a resident of Ojai, California).

Anson Williams, who played Potsie in Happy Days ( if I needed to tell you that) wants to be Mayor of the town that has a population under 8,000 and is known for its boutique hotels, art galleries, and farmers’ market of local organic agriculture. Chain stores are prohibited by city ordinance.

A vote for Potsie would be proof that fame really is the most important thing in the world. Get out there and vote Potsie!!!!
