Animator Nate Milton composed two shorts set to Max's poems: "Poem to My Litter" and "Afternoon".


Max was comedian in the sketch comedy troupe His Majesty, The Baby. HMtB performs regularly at the People's Improv Theater, The UCB, and other venues around NYC. They also run a poetry reading series and a host a literary magazine on their website.


His Majesty is Described by critics as “endlessly innovative,” “restlessly deconstructive,” and “the future of all entertainment,” HMtB fearlessly pushes the boundaries of sketch comedy. The group performed at the 2014 NYC Fringe Festival, the PIT, and various venues in New Haven and LA. Drawing inspiration from the Pythons and performance art, HMtB blends traditional sketches with dance, poetry, and live music, physical comedy with metaphysical comedy. For the members of HMtB, comedy should deal frankly with our worst fears. In the words of Time Out New York, “What they miss, inexplicably, is that it should be funny.”
