The show is open! Look at all these links of the recent media blitzzz and other ventures:
^Hey! It’s a snippet of Bad Dates, Or… performed at Sketch on the Rocks. Filmed by David Audino.
“So, I was enjoying it, this movie, this forbidden flick: Problem Child, starring John Ritter as a guy who adopts a child who turns out to be…a problem. In this film, there are a few moments of implied sexuality, tame by today’s standards, but at the time, I felt like Eve being tempted in the Garden of Eden. I can’t remember the exact moment that triggered my blossoming sexuality to bloom, because, truthfully, I haven’t watched the movie since. I just know it’ll never be as good as the first time…”
^My recently performed story, “Come and Knock On Our Door,” was published by You’re Being Ridiculous HERE.

But if you haven’t, then you’ve seen Indiana Jones or you’ve seen Air Force One, or you’ve seen The Fugitive, you’ve seen one of his movies, you grew up with him in some way, because pop culture has embraced him so much…”
^I got to hang around with Caffeinated Comics and talk about Harrison Ford all afternoon! Listen HERE.

“It’s such a good idea that I can’t believe no one else is doing it,” said Eileen Tull, a “Flick Lit” performer. Tull will perform an excerpt from her one-woman show, “Bad Dates, Or What Killed That Monkey in Indiana Jones Only Makes Me Stronger,” which details her lifelong affection for Harrison Ford and how the obsession impacted her romantic and personal life.” – Jake Miller
^A few news items about Flick Lit: Reel-to-Real Storytelling, a new show where I’ll be featuring later this week with a snippet of Bad Dates, Or… alongside a lineup of great storytellers. Read an interview about the new event HERE. And don’t miss my adorable childhood photo on their website!
“Tull is an engaging performer with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Ford oeuvre, and many will be able to relate to her thus-far-fruitless quest to find love…”
^And finally, a review of Bad Dates, Or… that could be accurately described as “mixed.” There are lots of valid points, and I’m actually making a few minor adjustments to the show. Overall, though, you can’t please everyone!
