Busy Week! TV, Festival, Moving, Oh My!

I have no excuse. Yesterday, Thursday, I just forgot to write an entry. Do I quit? Do I make this one twice as long? No, I will keep going. Because Michael Caine said to a young Bruce Wayne, “Why do we fall down, Mister Wayne? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.”

I love that voice. ANYWAY, welcome to Friday! Here’s the thing guys: I’ve been incredibly busy, but in a good way. I’ve got a lot going on, and hopefully much more to follow.  Next week is going to be incredibly busy. Actually, starting tomorrow I’ll be on CBC Television. Well, if you live in Ottawa anyway. On a show called, “Our Ottawa.” It’s airing Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Following that on Monday, I’m closing out the show at Absolute Comedy in Ottawa. Tuesday, I move in with m’lady. She doesn’t know yet, but who doesn’t like surprises?! Wednesday, I’ll be in two places at once because of technology. I’ll be on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight (check local listings), and then I’ll be on CBC’s LOL Show at the Cracking Up The Capital Festival. Thursday, I’ll be watching Carleton and University of Ottawa students Improv Battle each other, followed by an industry party. Friday will be hanging out with family and hanging out with festival friends. And finally on Saturday, I’ll be performing to a sold out crowd at the National Arts Centre. Close to three thousand people.

Exciting things! I’m pretty excited. Sorry if this seems like gloating, because it’s not. That being said, I’m going to promote the fact that I’ll be selling my comedy special at both shows for the festival. And since Cracking Up The Capital is in support of Mental Health causes, I’ll be donating 25% of ALL of my sales to the cause as well. So if you can make it out, please do! Come support a great fest for a great cause!

Plus, the closing gala also features Mary Walsh, Patrick McKenna and Rick Mercer. No pressure though!
