The Backbone Campaign's "CHOCOLATADA" event with the giant puppet SNOWFLAKE & my "Constitution" drop. Kevin Joyce & Moi are in twin Tuxes as Esperanto & Francois and Janet McAlpin is the stilting Madame X. Having pledgers do the WAVE in the audience like in a sporting event was a really powerful way to illustrate the impact that cumulative giving creates. People loved the event. Bill Moyer is the director in the middle of us all. http://www.backbonecampaign.org/

My wife, Arlette Moody & I as Dita & Guto in our duet mini opera/cabaret DARK CARNY. We are repackaging it this coming weekend as BERLIN CABARET....to make it palatable for a private party at Connie Thayers, being thrown in honor of her friend who is turning 65 (But looks 45 I'm told) We LOVE performing with these characters!
A lovely 60th Birthday party for Natalie Yount at the Palace Ballroom. Produced by Martha Enson & EnJoy Productions. I MCed the event as the Maitre De, Monsieur Ettienne Beauregard, who bossed around the Bell Hops, FiFi (Below, Leah) and BonBon (Alexander), as well as the narcoleptic janitor, Azzizello. Martha played the cocktail waitress LuLu, who was always trying to get me to notice her (to no avail) as she did her hoop act. We had a hand balancing act by Cory Tabino, Incredible tango dancing by Argentinians Maite Valdez and Carlos Barrionuevo. I read the Birthday girl a lovely autobiographical poem and live music was by performed by the gypsy jazz band Pearl Django. FiFi - Bell Hop

Here's a Thanksgiving Song I wrote for JibJab's ECard holiday release. Evan Spiridellis is the Art Director AND my brother in law. He and his bro Greg worked with me to tweak it into perfection. It's really fun to make a song, and then see what animators do with it. Check it out! Personalize it. Send it! http://sendables.jibjab.com/sendables/202592/be_thankful
