SHOPWORN is “punch-line funny and pretty darn woke”

The reviews are in, and SHOPWORN is one of Best of Fringe 2018. But don’t just take our word for it – ask our pals at DCist. We’re so proud of this show and would love for you to join us before our run ends on July 28.

Praise for SHOPWORN

DC Metro Theater Arts: SHOPWORN is “punch-line funny and pretty darn woke” and its “appealing characters, terrific performances, and ample laughs make it an excellent and entertaining buy.”

DCist: SHOPWORN’s “tense, strange, and intriguing narrative [is] pretty entertaining.”

Broadway World DC: “Finding a young production with tons of potential is always thrilling. Finding one that has already tapped into much of that potential is even more satisfying. Hopefully, this is a production that will find life again beyond the Fringe Festival.”

DC Theater Scene: “SHOPWORN is the kind of show that strikes a chord in this current political climate. With an ever-churning news cycle of ‘could it get worse?’ moments followed by troll-filled comment sections, it’s nice to get a chance to laugh at the way we disagree.”

My Czech TV debut!

Well, “C.T.” – my new favorite European correspondent – was as good as his word. I made the Czech TV news on 10/16! Perhaps my dream of doing a Czech gum commercial is still a possibility?  I await their communique…

Til then, here’s the whole package.  My segment starts at around 1:35 in…  And here’s my interlocutor:

The Virgin Diaries: check out my feature in the Washington City Paper

I’ve been working hard on my one-man storytelling show, No Sex, Please, which premieres Friday, July 12 at the 2013 Capital Fringe Festival.  I’m very excited and can’t wait for the show to open – it covers my bumbling experiences with love and sex from my formative years on through to my mid-twenties.  Long story short:  I was a virgin until I was nearly 28-years-old.

Go here to learn more about the show and my process (read: struggle) to create it – AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS! – in my feature for the City Paper. Continue reading “The Virgin Diaries: check out my feature in the Washington City Paper”

Storytelling with SpeakeasyDC: Fifty Shades of Grey

—————————————————–

Here’s the video from my most recent storytelling gig, in February.  It covers the tawdry events and psychic baggage that almost stopped me from getting to first base (for the first time, people!) when I was in 11th grade.  You can file it under “Triumph of the Human Spirit,” if you’re so inclined.  From SpeakeasyDC‘s Valentine’s Day show.  Cheers.

Thanks to Nick Newlin for posting the video!

My notebook habit…

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine gave me a pair of leather-bound notebooks.  “You’re a journal writer, right?”  I had to think about it for a second before offering a tentative “yes,” since I’m a journal writer more in concept than in practice.  I’m far more likely to watch a film or read a story about a journal writer than to actually sit down, crack open a new page, and put my pen to paper (or fingers to keypad, as it were) nowadays, such is the procrastination, lethargy, and outright dissipation that can dominate my existence.

But still, I accepted those notebooks, as if Continue reading “My notebook habit…”
