Laughing with Lorna Landvik in Party in the Rec Room

Quote of the Day: Improv helps you in all areas of your life; helps you think on your feet, helps you listen, helps you show up in the moment. Lorna Landvik, author and stand-up comic.  My friend Jackie and I had the absolute pleasure of attending Party in the Rec Room, Lorna Landvik’s stand-up comedy show at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis, MN. The venue is this great local bowling alley/restaurant/theater in the Lyn-Lake area of Minneapolis. (Arrive early, parking is a sketchy.) We didn’t get there quite early enough to bowl a game, but we did enjoy a delicious dinner...

Nominations for the TCTBlogger Awards, 2017

Quote of the Day: We need our arts to teach us how to breath. Ray Bradbury The point is, art never stopped a war and never got anybody a job. That was never its function. Art cannot change events. But it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed… because people are changed by art – enriched, ennobled, encouraged – then they act in a way that may affect the course of events… by the way they vote, they behave, the way they think. Leonard Bernstein It’s so easy to lose faith and become lost in all of...

Triple Espresso at Ames Center, Burnsville

This is not a review of the performance of Triple Espresso in Burnsville, MN. I had plans to go, but the weather, and other obligations, are keeping me away. Still, I want to promote the show. I saw it when it was on tour here in the Brainerd lakes area a few years ago. I had a smile on my face the whole time, laughing, singing, and enjoying the “highly caffeinated comedy.” Here’s the press release. I hope you all get a chance to see it! They have toured all over the country and world. (I may not make...
