Blog name: Dobie Maxwell's 'Dented Can' Diary
Location: Born in Milwaukee, Based in Chicago, On the Road
About me: This is my daily warts and all diary, chronicling my unvarnished thoughts about what goes on in the life of a comedian, entertainer and 'dented can'. Some think I'm cutting edge. Others think I'm a flaming kook bag. What you think is up to you. One thing I am is consistent. I've managed to make an entry every single day since March 14th, 2006. My life truly is an open book. Love it or not, thank you for reading.

  Sunday April 13th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I speak often of what a tremendous mentor my grandfather was to me – and he was – but there are a few things he never got to that I had to painfully learn on my own. He died when I was only 18, so maybe he just didn&rsquo...

 High Hopes And Daring Dreams
  Friday April 11th, 2014 – Island Lake, IL    I read a fascinating interview with Mel Brooks a long time ago where he said that every one of his movies was a major source of disappointment to him. He told how whenever he’d begin each project he’d have grandiose visio...

 Southern Exposure
  Thursday April 10th, 2014 – Chicago, IL    The next time I say something to bash The South, someone needs to give me a swift kick in the hush puppies to shut my mouth. And while I am not necessarily a fan of the culture as a whole, I do know quite a few truly sweet people that ...
