On November 5th I will be participating in Fun Fun Fun Fest as a member of The New Movement Theater and a first time Air sex competitor! One week later I get to travel to sleepy old New Orleans town for Hell Yes Fest where I’ll be hosting a character show on November 12th. Get tickets now for Fun Fun Fun Fest here and tickets for Hell Yes Fest here. You should really buy the full festival passes, the schedule is impressive for both festivals. If you don’t live in Austin or Nola then phone a friend that can make it. You will be closer friends for having done this because they’re going to have the time of their lives like that Green Day song only happier and funnier.
This video features one of the first characters I created. I’m posting the Mime Stuff video because I shot this while visiting my friend Justin in New Orleans almost two years ago. New Orleans hooked me right in, I can’t wait to visit again. If you like this video then check out parts two and three.
These precious comedy crystals started forming during my trip to New Orleans last year, I was taken back by the large number of street performers there. A lot of them where killing it, very impressive. For some reason I thought of a mime with a basic brown box reading, Mime Stuff 25 Cents. I liked the idea of him shouting out his mime abilities as people walk by, just hoping they would come watch him ‘mime around’. I had to do it.
Once I got home and watched the footage I wanted to make a weird guy character, someone that might actually do this earnestly. I ended up editing it into three videos and I like them all. The whole thing was done in three sessions, two on the street and one in the kitchen of an innocent family.
