I’ll make this one brief (for me), because it’s morning and I’m tired and have a lot of stuff to do today.
England was a spectacular time, as it always is. I totally killed at two of my gigs there, and at one open mic, plus I got the royal rock-star treatment at another one. I drank too much and stayed out too late. I met some more nice people, some of them poets. I saw Dickens’ childhood home in Chatham and the Oscar Wilde prison in Reading. I even performed at a private birthday party.
And I may be going back sooner than expected. Not necessarily to do spoken word. But if so, details on that may come up when they come up…
As for the immediate present:
This is pretty short notice, I know, but I just got asked to perform at a storytelling night tomorrow night (May 15). Storytelling at Caplansky’s, at which I’ve performed before, is a small event in a deli on Sundays. And this time, it’s hosted by Marilla Wex, who not only is a killer stand-up comic and actor but also designed this website. Yes. She created what you are looking at right now.
I’ll do a couple of narrative-ish pieces. The show also features Sage Turtle and Inge Christensen, and there’s an open mic if you want to share a tale or two. Details on the right sidebar.
Farewell, sweet souls of the night.
