My self-summary
Let's go with this:

Cultural omnivore seeks same. Romance and irony a must.

For those of you who care about Myers-Briggs, I am an INTP with the caveat that the more comfortable I am, the more extroverted I am.
What I’m doing with my life
I practiced law in NYC for about five years before deciding that I needed to see if I could make a living in comedy. For the past few years, I have been pursuing that seriously, primarily as a stand-up. I like making jokes a lot, but i can turn it off when doing so is the appropriate behavior. Right now, I get some money (and drink tickets) from comedy, but I mainly pay the bills doing prospect research.
I’m really good at
Conversation. Singing with enthusiasm if not technical proficiency. Analyzing and synthesizing reasons and incentives. I have also been told by multiple others that I have a very good laugh and a killer dimple.
The first things people usually notice about me
At the moment I have a fairly full beard. I am also a big person generally, both in height and (though I struggle with it) width. I'm not "Mike and Molly"-sized, but it's enough of a thing that I'm rooting for them to make it.

At the same time, it's not enough of a thing that I watch "Mike and Molly."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pride & Prejudice, The Selfish Gene, Live From New York.
Movies: Topsy-Turvy, Manhattan, Pennies from Heaven.
TV Shows (last 5 years): Mad Men, Billy on the Street.
TV Shows (all time): The Simpsons, The Wire.
Music: The Hold Steady, Stephen Sondheim.
Food: Sushi, Italian, Chicken & Waffles.
Six things I could never do without
This seems like the kind of semi-BS category where you're supposed to write "Coffee! LOL."

I can do without the six things I'm about to list, but they are things that thoroughly improve my life.
--Diet Coke.
--Comedy podcasts. (Scharpling, CBB, Klausner, others)
--An internet-connected phone.
--The NY Times.

(RIP, the no longer listed 'sliced mango'. I still like you, tho'. )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Primarily, how to make people laugh. I find this almost endlessly fascinating. So simple and so complex at the same time.

Also, I think a decent amount about the news and the culture.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a comedy show or mic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Here? Jeez. Admitting private things seems like a better thing to do in person than on the internet. On the other hand, I said my favorite movie was Topsy-Turvy. I think that probably implies some reasonably personal things about me. I'd be happy to elaborate with an individual, as opposed to the universe and the subset of the universe that owns and/or operates OKCupid.
You should message me if
the above information seems like it describes a person you'd be interested in dating. And you've got sufficient ovaries to ask a man out.

As far as what I'm looking for, the ability to have good conversations with is the most important thing by a country mile. I want a smart, funny woman who lives in NYC and plans on doing that for some time to come.

No worries if you don't, but if you have opinions about Tom Scharpling, Louis CK, or the UCB theater, that's definitely a plus.
