March to Fools Play This Month!

"March"… get it? MARCH? Because it's the MONTH of MARCH!?

“March”… get it? MARCH? Because it’s the MONTH of MARCH!?

Hey, gang, here’s the info for the Fools Play Improv shows that are happening in March, and to which you should March (get it!?!?!?!? In all seriousness, though, you probably shouldn’t literally march to them unless you live within a comfortable marching distance from one of the venues. Otherwise you should drive to within a comfortable marching distance from the venues and then march to them (please check with your doctor to make sure you’re healthy enough to march before embarking on any march)).

Olympia on March 18th!

My Famous Friends Are at Jet City Comic Show This Weekend!

Fall into "The Abyss"

Fall into “The Abyss”

The Abyss

First off, I’m super excited that two of my Fools Play colleagues, Andre the Crimson Fool and Laramie the Olive Fool, have published a (bizarre) book called “The Abyss.” They’re exhibiting it at JCCS right now!

Creator’s Edge Press

My pal Travis runs a comic book company! Go check out this Creator’s Edge Press booth and pick up some awexome indie comix like “Billy Love Nibbles” or “Prince of Pieces.”

Jet City Woman?

Jet City Woman?

Junior Braves of the Apocalypse

A former fool (Mike the Green Fool) and his friend Greg wrote a comic book last year that got published by Oni Press (the same company that published “Scott Pilgrim”). Greg is exhibiting it!

Sweetgyrl Designs

Greg’s wife Anne runs Sweetgyrl Designs, which offers awexome pop-culture tchotchkes. All the retro 80’s stuff you’ve been looking for, handmade and vintage! This year it looks like the booth has a “Stranger Things” vibe to it!

Sometimes I’m amazed at how my life is just filled with artists of all sorts. Anyway, head to the Greater Tacoma Convention Center (map) this weekend to attend Jet City Comic Show!

Twice the Fools Play This Saturday!

Tacoma or Olympia? YOU DECIDE!

Tacoma or Olympia? YOU DECIDE!

Tomorrow (Saturday, October 22nd 2016), Fools Play Improv is performing NOT ONE, but TWO shows!

First you can see Fools Play at the Olympia’s South Sound Estuarium at 8:00 PM. Then you can see Fools Play at the Tacoma Little Theatre at 10:30 PM:

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

Fishy fishy fishy fishy boom boom boom

It should be noted that the South Sound Estuarium and Tacoma Little Theatre are about a 30-minute drive apart (in good traffic), so it is actually possible to go see BOTH shows. I, however, will only be performing in Tacoma.

It should also be noted that this isn’t the first time Fools Play Improv has performed at the Tacoma Little Theatre. NO! Fools Play had a memorable run there a couple of decades ago as well:

Let's do the Time Warp again...

Two Upcoming Fools Play Opportunities

Pure profit...

Pure profit…

Hey, there are a couple of Fools Play Improv shows coming up that y’all might wanna look into. And after looking into them, y’all might want to actually, y’know, go to them.

The first one happens this Saturday. Hey! That’s tomorrow!

A colorful cast!

A colorful cast!

Fools Play is part of a massive bill that includes two musical acts and a couple of stand-up comedians, so they’ll be doing a shortened show as just one of the acts. Bonus: Half Pint makes really excellent pizza, and you can have some whilst you watch the funtimes! Also, who can resist “Gypsy Folk Punk Clowns?” Full disclosure: I won’t be at this show ’cause I’m going camping this weekend. BUT YOU CAN (be at this show, in the audience).

Details:
Fun Police + Are They Brothers? + Fools Play
Saturday, August 27th 9:00PM

All-Ages (I think) & Free (I think)

The next opportunity is in a couple of weeks, and this one is up in SEATTLE!

MUSICAL GUEST!!!!

MUSICAL GUEST!!!!

That’s right: We are doing a co-show with musical guest Julia Massey! Holy crap! That’s awexome! Plus it’s in Seattle, so all of you people who don’t come to see Fools Play because it’s way down in Tacoma and that’s too far away (you know who you are) have NO EXCUSE not to come see this show!
