2 Workshops and 1 Beer Garden

I’m back in yyc for a few weeks and I want to mention two things.
  1. I’ll be at the Calgary Fringe performing in A NOTORIOUS Beer Garden. It’s basically the most fun you can have at a NOTORIOUS show. It’s outside, there is delicious local beer and NOTORIOUS runs the stage. Last year was amazing. We even performed in a thunderstorm. If you’re in Calgary, come.
  2. Two I’m teaching two intensives on Sunday, Aug. 9: Unforgettable Characters from 2-5pm and Stories Worth Telling from 6-9pm at the Lab (112 16 Ave NW). It’s the only time I’ll be teaching in Calgary for the rest of 2015. I’d love to see you there. I’ve learned so much in the last year in Toronto and I’m excited to bring it all home. Both intensives are $50, but I’m doing 20% off ($80) if you book both together. Email me to confirm your spot. I’m only taking ten students in each.

This intensive examines what we can do to hook an audience right away, and keep them on the edge of their seat until the fat lady sings. Using longform and shortform narrative approaches, this course will breakdown the art of spontaneous storytelling for improvisers of all levels.

  1. These enabled the participant to cease every reel, allowing a degree of "talent" in order to fulfill the New Jersey gaming 먹튀검증 abc-1111 legal guidelines of the day which required that players had been able to to} management the sport indirectly. The authentic conversion was applied to approximately 50 late-model Bally slot machines. Because the everyday machine stopped the reels mechanically in lower than 10 seconds, weights had been added to the mechanical timers to prolong the automatic stopping of the reels. By the time the New Jersey Alcoholic Beverages Commission had permitted the conversion to be used in New Jersey arcades, the word was out and every other distributor began adding talent stops.
