Ah, Toronto.. and a SURPRISE HOLY CRAP!

Hi friends!

The Toronto Improv Festival was great. Generous awesome crowd, generous awesome organizers. We appeared, did a show in a lovely giant blackbox theater, got our first non-alcoholic suggestion (which was lovely!), reunited with the excellent Meghan Wolff (who rocked it), secured crepes, and then walked back to our hotel, dodging mummies and drunk Power Rangers. Canada believes in Halloween. :)


Mike Doughty will be our Armando for a special performance at HUGE Theater.

If you're not sure who Mike Doughty is, think former Soul Coughing front man, amazing solo artist, writer, storyteller and good god. (Also think me listening obsessively, between the years 1995 and.. 2010? I've hung out with this guy's voice a lot.)

If you're not sure what an Armando is, don't worry: it just means that he's going to tell stories (!!! and he's an excellent storyteller), and then we shall improvise inspired by said stories.

If you're not sure what HUGE is, what better time to check it out, indeed? :)

Am I excited? Indeedy do. So very.

Armando Night featuring Mike Doughty.
THIS Friday Nov. 2nd
10:30 p.m., $20, HUGE Theater.

November is for turkeys and the funny.

October was fun. So much fun. But it's not over yet!

The beautiful Emily Schmidt and I head to the Toronto Improv Festival! Our duo, Ladies Who Drink, performs on Saturday October 27th at 9 p.m. I'm so damned excited to play with her, neither of us have been to that side of Canada, Toronto looks amazing, I get to take an airport shuttle. Meep!

Creature Feature has a special Halloween performance! 8 p.m., October 31st, HUGE Theater.

Family Dinner starts up in November. Ohmygod, the cast makes me so happy. It's what it says it is: an improvised holiday dinner. It'll be wonderful and terrible. Please come! Saturdays, 8 p.m., HUGE Theater.

Adorable will be performing sometime during the IMPROV-A-THON, Thursday November 15th, HUGE Theater. It might be in the middle of the night. Please come in your PJs (and it's Give To The Max Day! Important!)

The Theater of Public Policy continues to be awesome.. (I'll be performing with them on Thursday November 15th, 7 p.m.,  HUGE Theater.)

And I think I'm involved with a mysterious show called the Nightmare Video Project, Saturday November 17th, 10:30 p.m., HUGE Theater.

Finally, the All Star Variety Show Bonanza returns, Monday November 3rd! I have the honor of looking at the cast list. Good good. It'll be great. 7 p.m., Bryant-Lake Bowl.

Thanks, friends! Stay sane during these election times and see you in a bit. :)
