LOS ANGELES: I am sorry to announce that Varietopia with Paul F. Tompkins is on hiatus for the remainder of 2014. Tickets purchased for the October show will be refunded, if they haven’t been already, and I apologize for any inconvenience this abrupt cancellation may have caused.

The sad, dumb fact of it is this: I bit off more than I could chew here. Although I have mounted many big variety shows pretty steadily over the last decade, I find myself very busy with actual paying commitments lately (good) and not a lot of time to indulge the creative things that will never pay me money (not so good). Scrambling around trying to do everything at once started to actually take a toll on my health! And it all caught up with me by the end of September.

After a great deal of exhausted soul-searching, I had to admit that I needed to focus on the job(s) that I already have and give them what energy and focus I still retain as I enter my pre-dotage. Varietopia will return at some point next year, but not as a monthly show. To do this thing they way I want to do it, I need more time to plot and book and write and rehearse. So that’s what I’m gonna do.

I also have plans for… something else. Watch this space.

Thanks to everyone who has come out to the seven Varietopias this year, and thanks to all the amazing people who have worked on this show, for less than peanuts, both on and off the stage.

See you in 2015!

Keep that PFT healthy and happy, please.

Superego at the LA Podcast Festival live on your computer.

mcconville:

This Saturday, 9/27 at 12pm PST, you can watch Superego live, with special guest Brian Stack, as part of the live stream of the LA Podcast Festival. 

Visit lapodfest.com/live and use the code “superego” at checkout. It’ll give you access to nearly every single show at the three day festival, which has an amazing lineup this year. You don’t have to watch live, either. The code lets you watch the shows for three weeks after the festival.

C’mon. Get this. It’ll be a good time.
