METAPOST: ANNOUNCING: THE INTERNET READ ALOUD: A RECURRING LOS ANGELES-BASED INTERNET-DERIVED IRL COMEDY SHOW THAT YOU CAN WATCH AND ALSO BE IN!
Hello everybody! I am going to be hosting a new comedy show, The Internet Read Aloud, in which the gimmick is that every act must include some material (text, audio, video, WHATEVER) that performers found on the Internet. Do you want to see these performers? Of course! Do you want to be one of those performers? You can be! The first two shows are July 14th and July 28th, at The Clubhouse in Los Feliz, and, assuming all goes well, I’ll be doing two shows a month indefinitely, forever! So I need acts! I have some cool folks lined up for the first couple shows, but I need more! If you have an idea for Internet-based comedy performance of some kind, pitch me at email@example.com!
I did this show once before in Baltimore and it was really fun. Some examples of the acts from that show, to get your ideas rolling:
- A slideshow of the Worst Dudes On OkCupid!
- A dramatic reading of discussion group drama over organizing a furry convention!
- An up-and-coming writer pitches a movie executive on his new film, using the Wikipedia plot summary of an extremely bad movie!
- A guessing game where you have to tell what’s going on in a Craigslist personal ad when all the gender identifying information has been taken out!
- A multimedia spoken word piece based on a series of insane emails a director/crazy person kept sending to the staff of a film festival, even though he was told to stop!
OK, you get the picture! Again, if you would like to be in the show and are free on the 14th or 28th (or future second and fourth Thursdays of the month), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
