It's my birthday and I'm having a party!
Friday, Feb 6, 2009*. 7 pm til late.
There will be (good) pizza and beer and wine and Malört and whatever other drinks we dig out of the liquor cabinet. And pie. And maybe we'll play some board games or I'll make everyone draw a cartoon of me or something weird like that. Or you can just swing in and tell me how awesome I am.
We have two cats, so if you're allergic stock up on the Claritin (tm).
It's at our house, way up in the frozen north. I love all of you out on the internet, but, um, yeah, I'm not putting my address here. Shoot me an email if you can't remember where I live.
P.S. It's an open invite, so if you're talking to someone and say "Are you going to Fuzzy's party?" and they'll all like "What party?" and you're like "Awk-werd." you can just say "oh, you must not have read that blog post -- you're totally invited." and they'll say "Awesome!"
* I know some people care -- my actual birthday is Tuesday, February 3.
Blewt! is taking its show Don't Spit the Water! to the Comedy Central Stage in Los Angeles for a performance on May 28th. To help raise money for our trip, we're holding a karaoke party at Trader Todd's. Your favorite comics and characters from Don't Spit the Water! will be joining the fun with karaoke performances, and, of course, you'll be welcome to pick up the mic and sing a song or two!
Your admission of $40 gets you unlimited drinks and appetizers from 8pm to 10pm. Half of that money goes directly toward the cost of sending 7 actors out to Los Angeles to perform fart jokes for strangers.

I'll be appearing on The Callback Show, a one-hour interview and information based radio show, centering on the art, craft, and business of Chicago Theater. The show is taped in front of a live audience at Strawdog Theatre Company's Hugen Hall (3829 N Broadway, Chicago) for later broadcast and podcast. The topic of this week's show is "day jobs". The show is free, the bar opens at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm.
I'll be MCing the Camenae Monomaniacal Monologue Writing Contest.
Playwrights compete head to head for cash prizes! Eight actors (including Erica) will perform original monologues written specifically for them. Four "celebrity" judges will vote, and one playwright will be crowned Monomaniac.
Steep Theatre (3902 N Sheridan, Chicago)
Please join me for drinking and conviviality to celebrate my birthday at the Twisted Spoke (3369 N Clark) around midnight.
