The Holidays are OVER! Great! Now let’s return to some semblance of normalcy, or whatever normalcy exists when you’re trying to be a comic.
Tonight kicked off the Comedy Bar’s annual Festival of New Formats, which I really wanted to attend, but found myself too tired to after an unusually long commute from Richmond Hill to find fancy cat food, which will supposedly stop Peanut from scratching her own face off.
That being said, my own show is being launched tomorrow on Day 2 of the FoNF and you should totally come and check it out:
The idea is to incorporate more media into live comedy performances. The irony is that I’m not much of a tech-y, I just really like the idea of incorporating my computer to my comedy, since the funniest stuff I’ve written over the years can probably be found in old FB chat, MSN & ICQ conversations. Anyway, we’ve got some sweet acts lined up, so click on the image above, it’ll take you to the Event page on FB and provide you with ALL the details!
Now, before the clock struck midnight on NYE – the day before, in fact, I was privileged to perform in a really awesome show, again at Comedy Bar, in association with the Canadian Comedy Awards:
Squint & check out that sweet line-up. The entire show was professionally recorded and shortly, I will be given a copy of my performance, so that I’ll have a top-notch quality video of me performing stand-up that I can submit to various festivals and events. I submitted a really shitty quality video to a comedy festival already and have yet to hear back, but I’m still keeping my fingers crossed. At least next year, they’ll be able to see that I’m not just a series of very pale blurs.
The CCAs are being held in Ottawa this year – and I’m super excited because I will definitely make the trip up for them, so former friends of Ottawa, I warn you now – I will be begging to sleep on your couches/spare bedrooms in the not-too-distant future. Maybe we can hold another show at the Avant-Garde while I’m up there. Who knows?
Only time will tell.
So stay tuned CCA readers…
