So Funny It Hurts, Pt 2

Nathan Bockelman (above) and Lauren Weedman (below) offer us their thoughts on curator Brian Getnick’s title “So Funny It Hurts” tonight at LACE.

THIS JUST IN (TO MY ADDLE-CALENDARED BRAIN) SO FUNNY IT HYRTS IS NEXT THURSDAY, MARCH 24. Whew.

I don’t know much about either performer, and performance being what it is the chances that anything I may know can prepare me for this essentially unpredictable experience are pretty slim.

I do find a few videos I can link to:

Lauren Weedman, excerpts from “Bust,” “Our Bodies, Myself,” can I resist Weedman hosting a Sarah Palin impersonator? Apparently not.

Nathan Bockelman, with Eric Svedas at Highways Performance Space “Feel NRG,” and together again in “Hiring a Stage Prop.”

Hmm, time is out for me…. probably a bit more later but I look forward to seeing you tonight thursday March 24 at LACE. But hey – fair warning: Steve Roden and Olga Koumoundouros at Susanne Vielmetter. Choices will be made. Aargh. (Oh boy!! Images are up on the Vielmetter website!!!! Yay brave Kevin!)

Yours fleetingly,

Geoff
