My Louisiana Style + Wax and Seals Gala Invitation

I perform comedy for a living. Looking good is not a requirement for performing comedy. Also, to many people I probably won’t ever really look good unless I shave my face. To those people I say “Ha Ha Ha” followed by “I am judging a Louisiana Style contest at the Wax Museum for Easter Seals” finishing with “How do you like me now.”

I bet everyone who doesn’t think I have any fashion sense is really feeling bad about how they treated me before. Look, just because I can pull off weird socks with ill-fitting pants and a Pelicans hat doesn’t mean you need to be upset with me. How about instead you acknowledge me at my best, which is somehow maybe kind-of pulling off colors and patterns that look like I might not know what I’m doing but I also straightened my beard real nice and I look fly as hell:



Sweater + pants from Banana Republic
Undershirt from American Apparel
Hat from Goorin Brothers
Shoes from a bizarre thrift shop outside of Kansas City
Feeling Pretty Good from my State of Mind
State of Mind from Me

Workshop w/Greg Tavares

Time: Saturday 10/12 @ 1pm-3pm

Workshop Description: “The Join: How to Start Awesome Scenes”

Greg Tavares is the co-artistic director of Theatre 99 in Charleston, SC. He wrote an improv book called Improv For Everyone. In that book, he tells players how to create awesome scenes.

In this workshop, Greg will teach you a technique that gets you on the same page as your scene partner right at the top of the scene. The technique is called “The Join” and Greg promises that it works every time. The workshop will include doing lots of scenes and Greg might yell a little, but that is not because he is mean, it is because he is excited.

Oh yeah, everyone who takes this class will get a free copy of Greg’s book!
