I’ve been enjoying the month of March so far, partially because I have managed to crack a few new stages. I started the month at the delightful Story Salon at Coffee Fix in the valley, hosted by the amazing Beverly and last week I got to throw down a story at The MOTH at Busby’s… The Moth is a storytelling show/project that is spreading all over the country. It was a great time – about 100 people in the audience, great story tellers and a good vibe. They actually have judges and each story is ‘scored’…which was a little intimidating, but I managed to take second place, missing out on the win by just 0.2 points… I’ll be going back for sure. …plus: It looks like my Moth performance might have gotten me invited to yet another storytelling show, this one on the Eastside… details to follow when I know them.
Improv-wise I have been digging the weekly alumni jams at bang (where else?) and last weekend’s “S&BJ Day” show was, as expected a hilarious and debased good time. It always feels reassuring to have a run of a few good improv sets in a row… especially when I’m about to start teaching another “level 4” class next week.
Have a safe Saint Patrick’s Day everyone.
OK, for various reasons I regularly attend the annual RAZZIE awards… and so on Saturday night I was there when Sandra Bullock showed up to collect her “Worst Actress Award.” She was funny & classy and I’m very glad she won that other award on Sunday night too.
Testing out the usefulness of my newly added “Calendar” feature…. click the link in the right-hand column to get a rundown of my upcoming shows… I remain disappointed that wordpress hasn’t yet created a seamless/integrated “Upcoming Events Calendar” for us faithful WP users…but this is at least a good temporary solution… using google calendar and a link… click on the items to see full details.
