The mad rush of MarsCon is over and now the mad rush to get ready for I-CON begins. I have 3 one-hour concerts to prepare for. (Yeesh!) But first, news!
--== NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT CD AVAILABLE ==-- --== I-CON ==--
--== NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT CD AVAILABLE ==-- In case you’re unaware besides doing the comedy rap thing I also do the sketch comedy thing along with my good friends Shoebox of Worm Quartet, the great Luke Ski, and Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad. Last June we all got together and recorded a bunch of awesome sketches. There was so much hilarity, insanity, and profanity that we decided to break up the release into two CDs. Last summer we released volume 1. Volume 2 is now available!
Stupid Cowboy Thing, Volume 2: Additional Squid is now available for your listening pleasure. The album features over an hour of sketch comedy goodness including more appearances by the Tiile Guy, more Guess The Contexts, and more sketches that end with Luke Ski flipping out at the rest of us in a tantric rage. It features sketches like “Green Eggs and Peas” (which Dr. Demento just played on his show this past weekend), “Let’s Do Improv” (which you can hear on The FuMP), “How To Speak ShoEboX” (which you can hear on this week’s Manic Mondays) and many many more.
--== I-CON ==-- I-CON is apparently trying to test my lung capacity this year as they have scheduled me for 3 separate one hour shows, plus an appearance in the Cabaret. Here is my schedule for the weekend:
Friday: 10pm - 11pm (Javits 101) Saturday: 2pm - 3pm (Javits 101) Saturday: 6pm - 8pm (Cabaret; SAC Auditorium) Sunday: 1pm - 2pm (SAC Auditorium) Monday: 9am (Collapse in a bloody heap in my cubicle)
I-CON is taking place at SUNY Stony Brook on Long Island from March 30th to April 1st. This year’s guests include Paul McGann (The Doctor on FOX’s TV movie), Nana Visitor (DS9), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Frazier Hines (Jamie from classic Doctor Who), Rekha Sharma (new BSG) and more. Plus there will be performances by Marc Gunn, David Weingart, and Voltaire. For all the gory details on my personal favorite science fiction convention visit http://www.iconsf.org.
OK, that’s it folks. Keep an eye out for the next in my series of Ridiculous Raps coming soon now that MarsCon is over.
