The Hideout Theatre in Austin, TX has become one of my most creative outlet in the realm of photography. I’m often doing exciting work for them that I  feel like sharing. Kaci Beeler and Curtis Luciani asked me to photograph promotional head shots for their upcoming production. It’s called  F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Save The World! and it’s a grotesque, improvised comedy show starring sensationalized versions of 1920’s luminaries. It features some of the funniest improvisers in Austin, including: Valerie Ward, Courtney Hopkin, Michael Jastroch, and Jericho Thorp.

I took the photos and Kaci did some brilliant editing. Observe the fruits of our labor and go see the show! It only runs two weekends.

Theatresports!

theatresports
So, I perform in a lot of  improv shows. In fact, it’s rare for me not to perform twice a week. This makes it progressively more difficult to get friends and people out to see you perform. It’s also usually during a prime fun time for most people (Saturdays at 8pm).

All of that, the show I’m currently involved in is NOT to be missed. It’s called Theatresports and it was created by Keith Johnstone (the man who created Maestro and several other formats). It pairs up two teams to face-off with improv challenges that can literally be anything (the first week, we had a paper airplane-throwing contest). Like most “competition” shows in improv, it’s not really about winning but getting you amped up and raising the stakes.

This upcoming weekend will be the third week of the run, and my second performance (I missed the second week). The inaugural show was phenomenal. The sold-out audience was booing judges (yes, there are judges), demanding a tie for the exhibition act, and screaming their heads off the entire show. The show feels more like a sporting event than anything I’ve been involved with. So come on out!

Every Saturday in May & June at 8pm. More info & tickets.
