WUNNERFUL RETURNS TO JOE’S PUB 4/10

Join co-hosts Leslie Goshko (Huffington Post Comedy) and James Bewley (Dale Radio) as they present an all-new musical salute to spring inspired by the long-running Lawrence Welk television program. Far from a traditional tribute, the hour-long event veers off into unexpected territory as petty jealousies, forbidden passions, and over-sized egos of the cast are revealed. Bewley, as his alter ego Dale Seever, picks up the celebrated conductor’s baton to lead...

Inventing the persona of Dean Kramer to George’s Steve Musselman, I co-wrote and performed informative podcasts, generated the biting commentary in the company blog, acted and co-created powerpoint...

Theatre de la Jeune Lune

Of the three companies I would want to be on stage with, this one was at the top. If you’re ever in Minneapolis, go see a show by these terrific pranksters.

The Bat Series

The first incarnation of this set of 22 drawings was created for a group exhibition at White Columns in New York, curated by Marisa Olson. The second time around, I made new work based on the same concept for Characters, Scene I and II, (one exhibition, two locations) curated by Helianthe Bourdeaux-Martin. The show also included James Jean, R. Crumb, Cindy Sherman, Philip Guston, and many other giants, and it...
