A big week.

So the last couple of weeks have been filled with rehearsal and general pre-festival preparation, like shopping for Spite's wardrobe for the show. (I found the perfect hoodie and cargo pants. But they are made of pure awesome, so I think even Daryl and Amy would approve.)

Here's why I'm excited about the festival:
  1. It's an easy way to see lots of other local improvisers play.
  2. I get to play with Spite and Tantrum, and what could be more fun than that?
  3. Susan Messing and Mark Sutton. They're two of my favorite performers and teachers—and they'll do both this weekend.
  4. I'm not in charge. The nice people at Improv-Abilities have taken that role—with help from lots of others, including Pete.
My goal this week: Take good care of myself. Eight hours of sleep, healthy food, lots of water, consistent workouts.

OK, and a little bit of venting:
  1. Audience voting for a "Best of" award should not turn us into assholes. You can be for your team without belittling others.
  2. And dude: QUIT PLUGGING YOUR OWN SHOWS ON OTHER TROUPE'S FACEBOOK EVENTS. It's one thing to go into playful throwdown mode on the wall for a competition—but if I invite you to an event and you use that event's wall to promote your show over it, I will nuke your post so fast it'll make your head spin.

  1. Can I add something to the venting section? Prove yourself against others and then develop your sense of entitlement. Then kindly blow that sense of entitlement out your ass.
