NEXT WEEK: Improv Festival in Hawaii

'The Improv Extravaganza'

Next week, September 23 & 24, I’ll be performing on stage at Improvaganza, the Hawaii Festival of Improv in Honolulu!

My team, The Audience, will be doing two comedy shows: Friday night at 9pm, and Saturday night at 9pm.

It was a great honor to be invited to perform in Hawaii and I’m really looking forward to the trip! The festival itself runs for most of the week, with various workshops and performances — which I assume are all great.

I have to admit: this is the only time I’m likely to be in Hawaii on OFFICIAL BUSINESS for quite a while. Barring a future invitation from a convention, I don’t have any current plans to attend any comics-related events there.

But since I WILL be on Oahu next week, well, shoot, it’d be fun to do a meetup! Perhaps at a local comic or game store, or somewhere else comfortable? I’d love to make myself available on this rare occasion.

I’ll actually be arriving on the 20th, so I’ll be around most of the week… AND THE 21ST IS MY BIRTHDAY WHAAATT

Honestly? I have no idea how many readers might be in Hawaii and interested in saying hello! If you are local and have any suggestions or ideas for how this might work, don’t be shy, please shoot me an email — [dave at wondermark dot com]

If it looks like something can be scheduled, I’ll make an announcement here on the site and also on my Twitter.

And if not? I guess I’ll just drown my lonely sorrows in a huge pile of malasadas. What a terrible, terrible fate to be consigned to.



THIS THURSDAY: ‘The Internet Read Aloud’ in L.A.

internet

This Thursday night, September 8, I’ll be participating in the latest installment of “The Internet Read Aloud,” a reading/comedy show hosted by Josh Fruhlinger (of the Comics Curmudgeon, and many other things)!

 

I will be doing a dramatic reading of my poem comprised entirely of phrases from Jeb Bush’s fundraising emails. And the evening has many other delights in store as well, I have been assured.

It’s at the Clubhouse in Hollywood, and details are also at this “Face-Book Event,” hyperlinked here! I hope to see you there!!

 



Bonus Roll-a-Sketch drawings FROM THE VAULT

Behold, The Nine

 

I went back to my collection of Roll-a-Sketch drawings (of which there are many, many that don’t make it here onto the blog) and put together a sort of BONUS PACK of never-before-seen entries!

And I also wrote some commentary on each, which is a new thing that I haven’t done before and which I frankly find fascinating. Perhaps you will too?

The post is available to all $5+ members of my Patreon! The patreonauts who support me and Wondermark and the other things I make for you are all cherished jewels of humanity to me, and if this BEHIND-THE-SCENES oversharing of drawings is of interest to you, I would like to make it a more regular thing.

PATREONAUT BONUS: A bunch of Roll-a-Sketch drawings! ]
