I’m headed to “The Former Soviet Union” “The Group”

Update 1/28: I have been moved to “The Group”. This works out for me since they meet Wednesday mornings and perform Wednesday nights. I still have love for “The Former Soviet Union”, who I saw give their first performance last week. We’ll still be friends on Myspace…Starting February 6, I will be performing with the …

Week 47: That’s all, folks

Well, this was it. The final show. Another sell out. What a great crowd, too. It was so nice to see so many familiar faces on the crowd, too — Annie, Jeff, Jason, Paul, Todd, Bob, the Millers. Thank you all for coming and being such a great, supportive audience. After the show, we hit …

Head over heels, repeatedly

Have you ever watched a football movie like “Friday Night Lights”, “Sign of the Times” or “Semi Tough” (Google them) and seen a faceless, nameless player get leveled with a vicious hit/block and reacted as if you’d just seen it on SportsCenter? I know I have. I know I’ve said to myself many times, “Who …

Week 46: All a blur

This week started with a call from my agent that I had to make the long drive to Shreveport Wednesday to audition for a movie called “The Comeback” starring gangster rapper turned actor Ice Cube and directed by Limp Bizkit frontman turned director Fred Durst. Oh yeah, it’s a family movie about the first female …

Week 45: And all I got was this lousy t-shirt

This week was the last scheduled show of the conservatory program. A very surreal feeling knowing it all started back in July of last year. Of the 17 of us that started the Conservatory program 45 weeks ago (Tyler and Ellen were in my Immersion workshop back in July), only 5 of us made it …

Week 44: Extended by 2

The big news this week is that our show, “Premarital Sextet” has been extended for 2 more shows on November 15 and 29. We are the only show out of the Level 5 shows to extend so it’s a good thing for us.This week’s show was another sell-out and my friends Steve and Kristin were …

Week 43: A packed house

This week was a quick trip as I would leave and return within 24 hors. On the flight out to Burbank, I watched the pilot for the NBC show “Journeyman” on advice from Melinda and slept. Upon arrival, I realized I forgot to book my rental car online, but luckily they had cars for Hertz …

Week 42: And away we go

The week started with Melinda going to the doctor Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to have her blood pressure checked. It’s been running high and the doctor wanted to monitor her, but since Melinda is on bedrest her blood pressure goes through the roof when she’s up and around (or called into the doctor’s office). The …

Week 41: The final Sunday

Before I get started, I completely forgot to tell this story from 2 weeks ago. I got an email from my agent asking if I knew anybody that was 6-8 months pregnant that would be available for a quick shoot at their home. Funnily enough, I just happened to know someone that fit the bill. …

Week 40: Winding down

A light weekend as we start winding down the Sunday classes… Saturday night I had dinner with Todd and we talked about the twins impending arrival amongst other topics. I love getting the time to talk with him because he’s extremely intelligent and it’s always a great conversation. Kudos to Todd for his choice of …

Week 39: Coast to coast

Melinda’s shower was Saturday and it was very nice. Thanks to Lisa for her hard work, I appreciate it. (Don’t forget my JL stuff). I stopped by for a couple minutes at the start and got to see some familiar faces and some old faces, especially Melinda’s friend from college, Jena. I had to buy …

Week 38: Feeling defeated

Note: The week number in titles of my travelogues are about my Second City travels, not the twins. The twins are roughly 6 weeks behind me. Friday brought the inevitable – cleaning out the room that is the soon to be nursery. I couldn’t believe it took that long to empty a small closet, but …

Week 37: Ah, the joys of pregnancy…

Friday, my babies mama went to see her doctor for a headache that wouldn’t go away. Her doctor sent her to labor and delivery for her high blood pressure to be monitored. Around midnight, Dr. Jacobs ended up deciding to hold her overnight to give her shots every hour to try and curb what was …

Week 36: 2 weeks until the season starts

This weekend started with my Fantasy Football draft at 9:00 am in Denton. I had the #1 pick, so I took LT. It’s always good to see everyone and the season starts in 2 weeks. After the draft, we had a quick lunch at Hooter’s in Denton then I had to rush to Carrollton for …

Week 35: Back to 1

Hurricane activity in the Gulf has sprung bad weather on the Metroplex and this weekend started off with the threat of some severe storms. That’s fine, I’m used to it, but I had a print shoot scheduled for Dick’s Sporting Goods downtown on the top of a parking garage. I had was scheduled to shoot …
