Discount Tix Still Available For AGENT G on Mar. 31

Hey, gang. Just wanted to shoot y'all a reminder that discounted tickets are still available for this Thursday night's performance of Vampire Cowboys' excellent new show, The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G at the Incubator Arts Project on 131 E. 10th St.

You can get your tickets by going here.

And stick around after the show for some drinks and merriment.

Having seen this on opening night (and being quite excited to see it again), I can attest that this is one of the Cowboys' most ambitious, touching and engaging plays. Qui, Robert & Co. have taken their staple genre mashup/stage-combat style and given it the Charlie Kaufman treatment. The result is truly beautiful and stunning. Not to mention fun and funny as all hell.

So see you there! I can't wait to see this again...

Your boatswain to the beatific,

Yours Truly to Perform Some Sketch Comedy in L.A. This Weekend

Hey, gang. For those of you in the Los Angeles area this weekend, I'll be performing with my ole' college sketch comedy troupe, Slow Children at Play, for a just-fer-the-fuck-of-it reunion show this Saturday at the Complex on 6476 Santa Monica Blvd.

The show's at 8 p.m., with a suggested donation of $10. Booze will be served, yuks will be had.

For the rest of y'all, have a great weekend. I'll hope to see a bunch of you in the New York area at the Thursday night performance of Vampire Cowboys' The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G, a truly stunning piece of work.

Hunting for his boarding pass,

Captain Moonbeam & Lynchpin in the Brick's Comic Book Theater Festival

Well, I no longer have to be mum for fear of jinxing. My play, Captain Moonbeam & Lynchpin, will be playing as part of the Brick Theater's Comic Book Theater Festival this June! Huzzah!

More details to come...

Hey, gang. Little Jimmy Comtois here, ready to let you in on some cross-promotional goodness between the Vampire Cowboys and the folks at Nosedive Central. Basically, it's a fundraising event that will wind up saving you money. For reals.

For those of you who have yet to buy tickets for Vampire Cowboys' latest, The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G, we're offering discounted ($15) tickets to the Thursday, March 31st show.

You can take advantage by clicking here.

And after the show, libations and refreshments (read: beer, snacks and Jell-O shots) will be served.

A portion of these discounted ticket sales will go to Nosedive Productions.

So. To recap:

You get to see an awesome show for less money.

You get free drinks afterwards.

Vampire Cowboys gets an awesome audience (yes, that means you).

Nosedive makes some money for its 11th season.

Everyone. Freakin. Wins.

So see you there at The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G on March 31!

Loving you always,

11th Season, Ho!

Holy shit that was fun. Nosedive's Red-Ribbon Gala, which took place this past Saturday at the Bowery Poetry Club, far exceeded my expectations in every way, and was a rousing success (as well as a previously-mentioned damn fun time).

Many thanks to everyone who came out this weekend and to everyone who made it happen, from writers Jeff Lewonczyk, Qui Nguyen, Mac Rogers, August Schulenburg and Crystal Skillman; musical act the Dye Violets, burlesque beauty Mme. Renee Rosebud; poet extraordinaire Brian Silliman; director John Hurley; performers Alisha Spielmann, Ryan Andes, C.L. Weatherstone, Joe Mathers, Felicia Hudson, Melissa Roth and Martin Denton (yes, Mr. Martin Denton); everyone at Nosedive Central and of course, our host and MC, Bastard Keith.

(Jesus, as long as that list appears to be, I'm sure I'm forgetting some folks, so I apologize in advance and thank you as well.)

Thank you all so much. Seriously, you guys are awesome.

And for those of you who couldn't make it out on Saturday but would like to donate to the cause (the cause being Nosedive's 11th season), you can do so by going here.

And now with the first item of the season out of the way, we can prep for our upcoming season, which will include our annual Blood Brothers present... horror anthology show, this time to go up in May instead of October (as it will be a co-production with EndTimes Productions). That'll be happening at the Gene Frankel Theatre in a matter of months.

Then, the plan is to remount our 2009 NYIT-nominated play, Infectious Opportunity, perhaps in the summer, depending on space availability.

We've also applied for entrance into a theatre's annual festival with another script of mine, but to mitigate the risk of jinxing that, I won't divulge any details until we get the response back from the theatre.

So suffice it to say, work is now underway for Nosedive Central's 11th season, about which I'm quite happy and enthusiastic.

This of course means I need to finish up my damn entry in the impending Blood Brothers show.

Back to writing,

Dainty Cadaver Plays in The Midway Journal

Piper McKenzie's Dainty Cadaver plays, in which I participated as an actor and writer, are now available to read in The Midway Journal.

(FYFI, I played Spencer in Team A, and wrote for Team C.)

Feel free to read at your leisure and go, "Um...what?"

A dainty writer,
