  As soon as I saw the amazing Ice Cream Factory space in West End, I was mega inspired. It’s a very funky, New York City slice right in the middle of my favourite Brissie hub of all, West End. So the fact we get to perform there tonight is very cool indeed. I’m a little curious (slash nervous!) about how it’s gonna run in a space that’s really designed for circus, but in some ways, having to march boldly into the unknown just seems kinda perfect given that that’s what improv is really all about.

For the moment it looks like it’s not gonna happen sadly (family, money, etc) but I’ve decided to post on here my top 10 shows I WOULD be seeing,were I setting foot down that way.

So you remember a little while ago how I said that something very exciting was in the air, change was a’comin, and so on, and so on? Remember? What, no? You mean you don’t just HANG OFF EVERY WORD I TYPE?!?!?! What the heck is wrong with you? Anyhoo, point is: it is. And yes, it has to do with my bucket list.
