Made of BEES = my bffs.

Made of BEES = my bffs.

The Richmond Improv Festival has been not just awesome, but incredible. I’ve had a blast hanging out with my best friends, meeting new people, taking workshops from incredible instructors, performing for a packed house, and watching some AWESOME comedy.

It’s been stressful balancing a sense of normalcy in my personal life while still trying to hustle and find a job that not only pays, but a job I love.

I refuse to settle for anything less than AWESOME.

Improv recharges me. It’s true. I love performing and taking classes at the DSI Comedy Theater where I live in Carrboro, but  really rekindles my love for the art, is coming to a festival like this and getting to watch, learn, and LAUGH. Sounds cliche, I know. But it’s true. Don’t be a hater. I’m ready to go home with a boost of confidence that I’m awesome. Woop!

Some of you may be wondering why I’m talking about this on my media blog. Well, I love comedy and comedy = social — and that’s the first part of social media. Because if you can’t make ‘em smile, then what else are you going to do? Anyway.

I’m pumped for ONE MORE NIGHT of incredible comedy. If you are near/in/around the Richmond, Virginia area, I’d LOVE to see you out at a show tonight. So, here’s the schedule for those of you who want to know:

4PM – CenterStage Rhythm Hall -

COMEDYSPORTZ BAILOUT SHOW. $10 for adults. $5 for students. Awesome? We think so.

7PM – CenterStage Rhythm Hall -

Cubed (Philadelphia)
Pound for Pound (Carrboro)
Einstein Meets Elvis (Atlanta)

9PM – CenterStage Rhythm Hall -

Superbest (Washington, DC)
iProv (Richmond)
Fritter Kings (Carrboro/Chicago)

Oh, and I will DEFINITELY be at the bonus MIDNIGHT IMPROV + KARAOKE JAM at Capital Ale House. My friends from the Richmond Comedy Coalition are hosting. And I have already started warming up my vocal chords to rock out on karaoke. Want to know my song-of-choice? Well, then I guess you’ll just have to come out and see for yourself. ;)

But in all seriousness, this festival has been awesome. I really hope to see you tonight!

All for now.

See how excited I am?

See how excited I am?

I’m so excited I can’t handle it. In 9 minutes I am getting in my car and driving to Richmond, Virginia from Carrboro, North Carolina. I’ve only been back to Richmond ONCE since I moved from there in June. So, needless to say, I’m pumped.

TONIGHT starts the 2nd Annual Richmond Improv Festival featuring 20 acts from ALL over the country alongside awesome local acts FROM Richmond.

The Festival runs TONIGHT (Thursday, November 5th) through SATURDAY! Check the schedule online for a complete list of shows.

I am going to be performing TONIGHT at 10PM with my improv group MADE OF BEES. (Follow us on Twitter @MadeofBEES). Tickets are only $10. You should totally come at 8PM and support local Richmond group FULL CONTACT. They rock.

See you in the RIVER CITY!

All for now.

Alright. So I won’t be getting “nakie” next week, but I will be making people laugh. A lot. That’s right folks, on Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 my two thumbs and I will be hopping in my Volkswagon Rabbit and driving approximately 2.15 hours to Carrboro, North Carolina for the 9th Annual North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival (NCCAF, formerly known as the Dirty South Improv Festival).

)

And now, with more PINK! :)

This is a huge honor for me and I couldn’t be more excited. I was totally pumped to have a, what I like to call, warm-up, performing in the Richmond Improv Festival in both May and November of 2008, but performing at NCCAF is something I have dreamed of for a long time.

So, if you are within, oh let’s say, a two hour radius of Carrboro/Chapel Hill, NC, you should make the trek down/up/sideways to see me and over 500 other amaaaaazing improvisers from all across the country, AND CANADA!, perform. Some of these improvisers I have looked up to for a long time, and to have the opportunity to share the stage with some of them is truly going to be the experience of a lifetime for me.

These are the times that I will be performing:

Thursday, February 19th @ 10pm w/ MADE of BEESMade of Bees performs fast paced, aggressive improvisation. With just one suggestion, these improvisers thrust you into a world of bold characters that are guaranteed to give you a comedy buzz. Made of Bees: improv that stings.

Friday, February 20th @ 11:30pm w/ iProviProv: the completely musical improv experience, is a show dedicated to all things melodic! Join our talented troupe of musically-inclined improvisers as they explore a wide variety of games and jams where the music, scenes, and especially songs are all based on your suggestions! You’ll go home humming a tune that didn’t even exist only moments earlier!

**Both performances will be held at the DSI Comedy Theater. I hear the theater has a pretty hunky owner, too. ;)

I will also be performing with ComedySportz — the interactive improv comedy experience! Check out the times & locations here.

Here are some other amazing shows you should check out while your down there: Jill Bernard‘s Drum Machine, The BeatboxMISTER DIPLOMAT, The Josh & Tamra Show, MC Chris, SNL’s Bryan Tucker (who hails from Richmond, VA!), and of COURSE fellow Richmond team FULL CONTACT IMPROV

It is guaranteed to be an awesome week full of hilarity. So, I better see you there.
