It was such a pleasure hosting for David Huntsberger at The New Movement Theater last night. The show was fantastic but I’m most proud of the Professor Blastoff Hangzone I put together. Congrats to Kim for celebrating her birthday with us and setting the record for Kyle’s dog bone toss game (7 bones made in a row!)
Touring the east coast with Airsex as a stand up comedian and judge was a one of a kind opportunity that delivered and kept me on my toes the whole time. It was a damn pleasure to spend so much time with Chris Trew and Vanessa Gonzalez. Sophie Johnson, a woman I didn’t know at all before the tour, turned out to be a one of a kind performer, shes’s unlike anyone I currently know. The good the bad and the quirky, Sophie is onion. Check out her wonderfully constructed and maintained website The New Storyville, you might hear me on a very well produced podcast or two as well (episode 15 and 16)!
My Preschool recently had a teacher work day. It was a pretty nice break and a lot of good ideas were tossed around but lets be honest we were going to do some “goofing off”. Sign language was the most fun and it inspired Zach Hanes to create some signs of his own. You can see all these cartoons and more in our TOONS section.
Good golly was the Funniest Person in Austin competition fun this year. I used one of my improv open mic characters that I developed for a Spirit Desire show, Glen Gibson Christian comic, and brought him out to Cap City Comedy Club in Austin Texas.
It happened when I was in 8th grade with Adam Jameson and Zach Smith, two guys I rode the bus with in middle school, we’re all still friends. Actually, I remain very close with Zach… best friends? Maybe… maybe we’re even best friend. That guy Adam though, we’re just friends because we were friends and liking those memories of riding the bus and making fart sounds keeps us friends. Sure, he lent me a sound system for a hometown show that I put on at Willibrew a few years back but who knows what that guy is up to now. Maybe he hates cute cat videos and gives poison brownies to old people, he could be a total crotch rot of a guy, I have no way of knowing. So Zach (best friend), Adam (human question mark), and me (rockstar) filmed some video in which I had to sing the Linkin Park lyric “Everything you say to me!…” over and over again and they kept insisting I didn’t get it right. I had to try all kinds of voices and pitches and they finally let me in on the joke. It’s happened on a few different projects. This time it was with Josh Ryan shooting a video for The New Movement Theater. We both agreed to do many takes because it was such a quick line, leaving the camera rolling and trying different voices made sense for some reason. In the end he edited together a funny bonus video so it was way worth it. I kind of look forward to this happening again.
Zach Hanes has been hiding an internet gem known as The Book of Lyle. I’m a huge fan of this project, the first chapter is especially well written and the pace is spot on. Hanes does it all as animator, writer, and voice actor. Watch more videos by Tiny Eyes Productions and share The Book of Lyle with all the humans you know. I F-Damn love it.
I love being part of a comedy scene with something to offer. Some of the funniest dudes and gals get me involved in their high quality work and I’m pleased as peaches about it. I always say yes to working with Austin Texas based comedy troupe Spirit Desire. Small roles, large roles, dinner rolls… yes, I want in. My scene partner is Erik Horn of Arts+Labor , no one acts like unaffected business men better than we do. For more Spirit Desire check out their video home page. All of this made possible by The New Movement Theater.
