The Metal Grasshopper series continues and Episode 5 offers a “Vulgar Display of Feelings” as Philip H. Anselmo agrees to undergo group counseling with delusional man-child, Dave Hill, in an effort to rescue the goat that also happens to be Anselmo’s grandmother. There’s not a dry seat in the house as Dr. Joe Randazzo aids Anselmo and Hill in an exploration of their feelings.

Scroll on over to Metal Injection to watch Metal Grasshopper Episode 5: “Vulgar Display of Feelings,” with the whole damn family at THIS LOCATION. While you’re there, catch your lazy ass up on the last four chapters”

Episode 1: “Origins” – Anselmo reluctantly agrees to share his Heavy Metal wisdom with Hill.

Episode 2: “The Awakening” – Anselmo schools young Hill on headbanging, Heavy Metal vocals, and the most extreme of all breakfast cereals. Oh, and Dave takes a phone message for Phil from King Diamond, which is awesome.

Episode 3: “Metal Or Not Metal?” – Anselmo puts Hill to the test with a round of Heavy Metal flash cards. Later Anselmo makes Hill sit in a closet for a seriously long time while he makes an awesome salad. Also, Hill rents a goat.

Episode 4: “Unscared” – Anselmo lets Hill loose on an unsuspecting public, where he meets an actual woman. Anselmo also schools Hill on stage banter, corpse paint, and other important topics. Later Anselmo and Hill get in a huge argument from which they may never recover!

Metal Grasshopper pairs the unlikely duo of Metal master Philip H. Anselmo with comedian, dandy, and NPR darling, Dave Hill. Hill begs Anselmo to mold him into “the baddest metal motherfucker of all time.” Anselmo begrudgingly relents and the abuse and absurdity reaches epic levels. Metal Grasshopper was directed by Chris Lee with Joe Randazzo, written by Chris Lee, Dave Hill, and Phil Anselmo, edited by Phil Costello and produced by Chris Lee.

COMEDIAN & ACTOR CRAIG GASS SERVES IT UP AGAIN

Thursday January 24th – ROAST TO AIR COMPLETELY LIVE

CRAIG GASS Debut Album & DVD To Be Released This Spring – Coinciding With North American Tour

____________________________________________

(January 22, 2013 – Los Angeles)  The outrageously funny Artist/Comedian/Actor CRAIG GASS is pulling out his world-famous spicy rub for roasting Heavy Metal Icon and Celebrity Apprentice Dee Snider.   On January 24, Revolver and Guitar World are thrilled to present The Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider!

These two heavy-weight sponsors have teamed up with MusiCares and AXS TV to bring you the first roast to ever be broadcast LIVE on television (not pre-taped and bleeped), LIVE from the Grove of Anaheim with 2013 Honoree Dee Snider.  This great night of comedy, calamity, charity and chaos, including the comedic talent of GRAIG GASS, can’t be missed. The Roast will feature: Legendary Roastmaster Penn Jillette, and a celebrity dais including; Zakk WyldeJim NortonLita FordEddie TrunkScott IanJim FlorentineCraig Gass & Mick Foley. More importantly, a portion of the proceeds from The Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider will go to charity.

GASS, who also famously roasted Gene Simmons a few years back, has played memorable characters on such TV shows as Sex and The City, Law and Order, King of Queens and Gene Simmons Family Jewels, and most recently has been doing voice over work on the shows Family Guy, American Dad and The ClevelandGASS began performing stand-up comedy in 1993. His dead-on impressions caught the attention of two icons of the entertainment community, Howard Stern and George Carlin. Carlin took the young comedian under his wing and GASS’ idol quickly became his mentor.

The pathway to impressions and stand-up comedy appears to be GASS’ destiny from the very beginning. Growing up in a family that was completely deaf, GASS learned to speak from TV. His debut comedy album/DVD is due out later this spring on Oglio Records and will coincide with a North American tour.  Early dates include January 25 & 26 in Dallas at the AT&T Performing Arts Center as well as March 29 in Toronto at the Panasonic Theatre.
