I have so much going on right now, and all I can do is sit home with my kid. A fever and a bad cough. Oh, well, so it goes. However, this weekend I will be shooting a short film called ‘Ori & Addison’ written by James Ferguson. Very excited about it. James is a dear friend and old writing partner who has a skill for the written word. He’ll be in town this weekend, and I can’t wait to catch up and put something original down on the digital celluloid.
Also, as you can see below I will be performing with the Impro Theater’s School Performance LAB. Very proud of this group of actors. Every one of them is talented, genuine and funny as hell. My ‘Inge Unhinged‘ show dates are
10/4, 10/5, 10/12, 10/18, 10/25, 10/26. A completely improvised play, in the style of William Inge. A wonderful playwright who focuses on the Midwestern United States and the lives of the people there between the years of 1930-1950. He is famous for being the Tennessee Williams of the Midwest and was famous for the plays; Come Back Little Sheba, Picnic, and Bus Stop.
This past weekend I was in San Francisco and played in Mannerhouse Manor at The San Francisco Improv Festival. Mannerhouse Manor is a fully improvised Edwardian comedy in the style of Downton Abbey or Upstairs, Downstairs. I just have to say, what a great crowd! After the show we were all showered with glowing praise for our work. I have to say as an improvisor you don’t always walk off the stage and think; “That was a great show.” This Thursday night in San Francisco “That was a great show!” I’m very proud of this ensemble and all the talent and skill each of them bring to the table each night. I highly recommend seeing our show this coming season at ComedySportzLA. I’ll update you when updates become available.
The only negative thing that happened this weekend was the loss of my smartphone. All I can say is San Francisco is the most polite place to lose a phone.
