When you are rehearsing your solo show for the Edinburgh Fringe and you need to get it under an hour, and you’re first rehearsal is 50:40.73!

That ┬ámakes me really happy because every time I’ve ever recorded myself in actual performance the time is closer to an hour. Which means either of two things.

  1. Audiences are laughing for an average of 9 minutes while I perform my set!
  2. I am milking the fuck out of this show.

I am sure the answer is somewhere in the middle.


I will taking a Myers Brigss technical analysis of preparing this show for Edinburgh. What is a Myers Briggs test? Is that Jung shit that tells you if you’re crazy or, not.

Point is: my show performs at 16:05pm (Edinburgh time zone).

Edinburgh is five hours ahead of the States.

I am rehearsing my show everyday (Monday’s off) from now till opening (August 4th), at precisely 11am everyday. That way my body gets used to performing at the time I will be performing.

However, there is also a train of thought that your body can surpass jet lag, and join the time zone of a new country immediately.

Since that may be true… I will also perform my solo show at 4pm Eastern Standard Time.

That way I’m covered on both ends!

If we agree

If we agree,
that there’s a chair;
then I’ll gladly walk the length of this lake with you.

If we agree,
That there’s a knife;
then I’ll quickly mix the cake and the frosting for you.

If we agree
That you moved on:
That you’ve taken all the books,
That you’ve undone the screws on the shed,
That you’ve ripped up the floors nail by nail,
Then I’ll quietly,
Then I’ll smilingly,
Admit to disagree.
