Show Update

13 Jul

Just completed the debut of my short solo show “Speaking the Names” at Monday Night Marsh. It went really well. There was a great audience including several friendly faces and a strong line-up of other performers. It was great to get my material up in front of a large audience and suss out the reactions. I got more laughs than I expected, which is good. And they were with me on the entire journey. Felt real good. So I’m looking forward to next performance on 26 July 2010.

Hope to see you there.

Speaking the Names: My solo show this Monday at the Marsh Theater

9 Jul

I’m excited to announce that my short solo show “Speaking the Names” will be debuting at The Marsh in July, and I’m hoping you can join me at one of the two performances.

The show focuses on how September 11th affected those of us who experienced the tragedy from afar—via TV screens, word of mouth, the internet, etc.—and how we remember what happened.

There are two performances, and I need friendly faces in the audience both nights. I’ll be one of four performers each night.

To RSVP please click the link for the day you wish to attend (below) and add your name and email to the guest list. (Your email will not be shown to anyone else, it’s just so I can send you a reminder or update.)

***THE DETAILS

I’ve had to create two separate invites for the different days. (Kind of annoying, but no event sites seem to offer multiple date options.  That said, if you’ve used Evite, I recommend MyPunchBowl as an alternative. It’s easier to use, more sophisticated, and more comprehensive.)

1st PERFORMANCE / 12 JULY (Monday)

The Diaries of King Arthur: Part 3

9 Apr

This is part 3 in a series. If you missed out, start here.

INTRO: King Arthur having a breakdown/mid-life crisis is an idea I’ve been kicking around for a couple of years, and now I want to turn it into a screenplay. I’ve started these diaries as way of finding that story and the screenplay’s comedic voice.

WARNING: I know nothing about King Arthur. Oh, and the following may be EXPLICIT at times.

***The Diaries – Cont’d

Hello.

Because of the entry of yester-yesterday my wife granted me access to our bed…for a peck on the cheek. She quoth this: That while Tristan’s joke was not appropriate, I was in the right direction mostly headed. She told me should I speak of my men and my day that she would reswear her fealty to me, and I would be able to sail the seas of her womanhood faster than a ship of Saxony.

Lord, I have never known such balls of pitch. Continue reading

WARNING: The following may be EXPLICIT at times. Also, I know nothing about King Arthur. Right now, that’s the way I like it.

Without further ado, venture forth braeve readyr…
