Eagle Rock Comedy Festival 2012

Working hard on the Third Annual Eagle Rock Comedy Festival, kicking off in just a few days.  Everything is free (although you need to rsvp for workshops and the roundtable).  You can find more information at the website, but I'll highlight a few things below.

Wednesday, December 5th from 8 to 10, Bobbie Oliver is moderating the Women in Comedy Roundtable at the American Legion Hall.  A panel of women from all areas of the comedy biz--comics, managers, sitcom writers, club owners, teachers and road dogs.  What will they talk about?  Whatever they want to, and whatever the audience asks.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening will be FREE comedy shows at businesses up and down Colorado Blvd. and Eagle Rock Blvd., including Swork Coffee, Dave's Chillin' and Grillin', Corner Pizza, The Coffee Table Lounge, The Capri, Colombo's (in the small room) and Brownstone Pizza.  There will also be a free open mic on the back patio of Swork each night.

Thursday, December 6th, from 8 to 10 (or so), I'm hosting a video shorts show at The Coffee Table.  My improv group, The Chaotiques, will perform live, then a great program of shorts, including the World Premier of our new web series, Saving Face, starring Bobbie Oliver and Sally Mullins, and directed (rather poorly) by yours truly.

Friday, December 7th from 8 to 10, there will be an improv jam at Corner Pizza, open to all who want to participate and hosted by John Fontaine.  This will include a second dose of The Chaotiques.  I'll be around for most of the night, although sometime late in the evening, Bobbie and I will perform as The Olivers at Dave's Chillin' and Grillin'.

Saturday, December 8th, there is a free meditation workshop at The Akido Cultural Institute from 1:30-2:30 pm, followed by a free improv workshop by John Fontaine from 3:00 to 5:00.  From 6:00 to 8:00, Bobbie Oliver will give a free Tao of Comedy stand up workshop at Dave's Chillin' and Grillin'.  And from 8:00 to 10:00, Bobbie and I will record a live Psychedelicatessen Radio episode at Dave's Chillin' and Grillin'.

And Sunday night, we have a wrap party at Flappers in Burbank, with a most impressive lineup:
