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.
My 3 and 4 year old students had to dress up and the teachers decided to jump in on the fun. My costume was more like a character that I call Single Dad. I strapped a doll to myself and put on some thick glasses then went around saying, “Have you seen my child… will you be my wife… Carol is that you?”
One Friday, in an effort to make work a more spirited place, oranges were handed out with the message, Orange you glad it’s Friday! I love the whole thing but on Monday I felt empty again. I helped myself make Monday better.
2009: A nice little picture from the greatest summer camp in the world. Unfortunately I can’t show you the full picture with the kids in the background enjoying the scene because I don’t have legal permission to do so. Fortunately it is still an awesome picture, what a farmers tan, let us not forget I was being paid for this…
It’s called Mustache Mondays, ya dig. Shout out to Kat J. and Jeremy A. of Killing in Apathy. That sentence wrote itself. The kids at my daycare think it’s real sometimes because they’ve only been alive for three years.
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.
