The first week of ZODIAC THRILLERS was a blast. A Sell-out crowd got to see four great improv sets from four great teams… but in the end VIRGO won and will advance to the ‘Night of Champions’ on Aug. 28th. Pre-sales for next week’s show are already going strong, so guarantee your seat (and save yourself 2 bucks) by buying in advance online. Where? at the BANG WEBSITE of course.
In other news: Should have a couple more bookings for ‘spoken word’ shows around town by the end of the month.
My apologies to the folks who mostly keep track of my progress here. I’ve been remiss in keeping you updated lately. As always, I find myself weirdly busy and able to fill each day with some sort of activity/work/project. Hey… it certainly keeps me out of trouble.
In a typical example of one thing leading to another, last weekend I recorded a (new) story for a (new) podcast called “Story Worthy.” This came about because I did The MOTH a few months ago at Busby’s. Regular visitors to PlanetOC will recall that I came in 2nd place that evening… losing by just 0.2 points to a woman who had a very funny story from her days as a flight attendant… well, THAT woman is one of the co-creators of this new podcast, and thanks to a mutual friend of ours she contacted me and invited me to do a piece on her new show, proving once again that it pays to be magnanimous in defeat. They’re not quite up and running yet, but when they start posting episodes I’ll let everyone know. Should be pretty cool.
Saturdays at 8pm in August at bang. of course. I’m very excited to bring the show back. All twelve teams are full of great players. I’ve lined up a piano player and I’ve got some great/weird/dumb astrological commentary to throw on top of it all. You don’t wanna miss it.
