Over the weekend, the Plano Star Courier interviewed our aerialist and acrobat, Courtney!
I was recently interviewed as part of a virtual question and answer session hosted entirely on an open source social network called Mastodon.
The resulting interview was collected (along with some terrific photos by local friends) into a new online anthology called Kintsugi Magazine. The entire process was coordinated transparently over Mastodon, and I remain fascinated by how well creative minds can play nicely together when they have a common goal.
The rest of the magazine is fantastic, with original art, words, and ideas from all over the world.
Like the network which inspired it, Kintsugi Magazine is entirely free, and is available to download in ebook form from their website.
Kintsugi is a project organized and put together through social media, mainly the Mastodon network. The contributors have not met in person or face to face. Our aim here was to show that people can do good and put together something unique and different. We wanted to encourage others to come forward and do the same.
I’ll be teaching my nationally road-tested “Variety Performance Clinic” on September 17th at the Dallas Comedy House Training Center.
The workshop is nearly sold out, so reserve your spot now!

From “This Show!” at the Margo Jones Theatre
Last week I had the pleasure of drinking too much coffee with Michael Gibson, Jr. during a recording of the Avert Your Eyes podcast.
In between terrible jokes, we chatted about clown life, the changing world of American circus, my adventures as an idiot abroad, and our upcoming show at the Margo Jones Theatre on July 7-9th.
I also told my favorite joke. Enjoy! 🙂
CONTENT WARNING: Strong language and philosophic ramblings.
UPDATE: Part two of the interview has been posted!

Recently I was invited by Dallas photographer Kent Barker to become a part of his personal project, a photo series called called The Creatives, which he describes as…
…an aesthetic document of a wide swath of creative people within the DFW metroplex.
It’s a fascinating look at both his amazing work, and how people can play together at the highest level in order to create something wonderful.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend a rainy afternoon with Kent, swapping stories and making silly faces for his lens. Here’s his final selection from the shoot, which will soon be gorgeously printed and join the other Creatives in his collection.
