I know there are very few people who are both fans of the wacky stuff AJ does and fans of INDYCAR, but if you care at all about INDYCAR, you’re probably as excited and boggled as I am to see Marco Andretti come out on top in Indy 500 qualifications this weekend. Congrats on the…

We spend the last two weeks conducting the weirdest playtests of my gaming career, trying to work through the mechanics and details on a couple of new games. Do you know what’s really weird? Watching a video of people playing your game (when you can’t be there or help). You know what’s weirder? That people…

If you’ve been waiting for things to settle down in the world (so I could re-stock copies of WE’RE PROBABLY ALL GONNA DIE), you’re in luck. The publisher has ramped up limited, safe production, and there’s a fresh order of 100 copies headed my way in the next week. I’m officially taking the game off…

We’ve got the first draft of some character artwork in-house, and we’re actively drafting a print-and-play version of my new game, KING of the ZOO. Here’s a sneak peek at the artwork/style I’m going for. Look for more details coming soon. Got thoughts? Love it or hate it? Want to join the conversation, evaluating the…

Some may know I used to use the name PLAYMORE GAMES for my little gaming endeavor. I’m excited to announce I’m officially folding that little side project into my AJPOWELL brand, so that content will all exist HERE right with the rest of my madness, branded thusly (you’re probably looking at the logo right now).…

Four performances, three sold-out shows. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to THE COMEDY PROJECT to experience I AM A MONSTER. I love you all and I am so thankful for your support.

February 25 is going to be QUITE a show. Not only am I intending to whip out my biggest illusion ever (hint, it involves music, audience interaction, and some truly RANDOM elements), but it’s also a jam-packed show with some of my favorites (an act I produce called WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE, my improv friends…

I’m excited to announce my first five performance dates for 2019. You can see an original illusion, performed my the (Sort of) Amazing AJ, on each of these nights, at 7:00 pm. Note that, in the first few months of 2019, Comedy Outlet Mondays will be moving from Dog Story Theater (on Jefferson SE) to…
