PowerPoint Karaoke at the MN Fringe Festival!

That’s right! We somehow landed a whopping five shows during the illustrious Minnesota Fringe Festival, the largest non-juried festival in the United States.

Come see improv comedians bravely attempt to give a PowerPoint presentation for a deck of slides that they have never seen before. You know what that means? That means you can come to every single one of our five Fringe shows, and have a completely different experience each time: different slides and different performers each night!

This madness is going down at:

Intermedia Arts
2822 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis

August 2 at 7:00 PM
August 3 at 4:00 PM
August 5 at 5:30 PM
August 8 at 5:30 PM
August 9 at 7:00 PM

Tickets are $12 (plus a one-time purchase of a  MN Fringe button), or you can attend more cheaply by buying a Fringe pass. Find out more and buy tickets ahead of time on the Minnesota Fringe Festival web site.

If you do the Facebook thing, we now have a Facebook page where we have created individual events for each of our shows. We’ll probably also post some other fun stuff in the upcoming weeks, so like us there and play along!

I look forward to slinging slides at you in August!

CONvergence Is Imminent!

cvg2014logoEvery year, my life is consumed from April through July 4th weekend by CONvergence, a 7,000-person nerd hivemind that converges (heh) upon Bloomington, Minnesota every year. There will be panels and music and movies and things to eat and things to buy and things to drink and parties and Rollergirls and British dudes with cricket bats in the parking lot.

CONvergence is near and dear to my heart, so I usually spend most of my CONvergence weekend actually working on CONvergence itself. These days, I’m usually just a panelist, prone to sitting 20 panels or so each year. This year, I’m taking it easy: only 15 panels! And half of them are on the same day! This means I might actually have time on the other days to, you know, hang around and have fun with people.

If you want to catch any of my CONvergence events and say hello (and you should!), here’s where you can find me:
