Seattle or bust

Not sure what I've got to do to get these other kid's blogging.
We've been invited to perform at Push, which is part of the Seattle Sketch Fest. So this takes us to Seattle for the first time and maybe we'll hit Oregon on the way up. That should be the weekend of September 15th. More details as they become available.
My last Funny Peculiar show sold out and was a big hit. I was VERY happy with how it went down. The next one is September 9th, and will be a celebraton of Tapan Trivedi's birthday. Woo hoo. Broken Home will be the musical guest. It will be a rockin' good time, this much is true.

Performing in SD

Wow, what a whirwind 24 hours. I performed as Francois Fly in San Diego. It was a burlesque show put on by my pal Augusta of It's A Chick productions, and I shared a dressing room with all these gorgeous women. That seems to be the standard for these shows. ICBINC shared a dressing room with the Velvet Hammer when we performed with them too.
I pulled out my lap top not wanting to oggle the girls innapropriately. My friend Don saw this and thought it was the perfect image of a geek, sitting amongst beautiful naked dancers and working on his laptop. So Don took a picture. He had Kitten Deville and one of the other girl's stand behind me AND KITTEN DEVILLE CHEWED ON MY EAR! ! ! Wow. I'll post this picture soon.
The event was associated with Comic Con so the house was chock full of the geekiest geeks of all time. I fit right in. We saw a bit of the Comic Con and I finally got to meet Jeffrey Brown who I've exchanged e-mails with but never met in person. I got two of his smaller books, Be a Man and I Am Going To Be Small and I bought a Clumsy T-shirt. He's the best.
At midnight we drove back to Lizard Boy's place in LA and got in around 2am. I got up in the morning and had Breakfast with Sue Nice and Emily Wilson-Wilson (Mrs. Lizard Boy). Then a bit of pan handling in the banana suit and off to be interviewed on CBS news radio about my pan handling adventures. Tommorow more panhandling and eating at Planet Raw then Sunday morning I go home.
Fun, Fun, Fun. But I miss my girl.

Oh my gawd I'm tired. Thankfully I have a sitting down job, I don't think I can stand. Was I out dancing all night? Was I drinking away the hours? No, I was just hanging out on a friend's lawn watching them light firworks 'til midnight. How did I become such an old man? I did play some Jr. Pacman. They had an actual, stand up Jr. Pacman arcade game that they bought years ago for $200. I'm oh so envious. Fireworks, of the safe and sane variety, are great fodder for heckling. My buddy was announcing the price of each one before he lit it and I've come to the concusiong that five five dollar fireworks taped together and fused to go off in sequence cost $50.00. Pyro-economics. Buy yourself some fuse and you can save big!

I'm working on bringing the blog back. It was offline for a bit there. We want to use it more since our touring, as inviduals and as a troupe, has made us more long distance friends who can only enjoy the mad cap that is icbinc via the internet.
Ben will be leaving audio blogs weekly and god only knows what the rest of us will cook up.
Amber and Becca just got back from China!!!! I'm sure they'll write more on that.
I've taken up panhandling. See for more on that.
Check out our links page, I updated it to include more of our pals in the comedy and entertaining game, and will expand it even more in the next month.
Check back, thanks,
