Q&A with Behind The Fringe

 

Succinctly as possible, can you describe the story, themes and circumstances of your show?

   - A man, his dog…and a ticking time bomb.

 

What was the germ for your idea? How and when did it come about?

   - 13 years on a walkabout, with my dog as co-pilot.

 

Just how bare bones is your show?

   - A guy in a suit, standing in a pool of light…so, shake your bones at that.

 

Tell your story, beginning to now.

   - Raised by wolves in Northern California, on the lam in Canada for a spell, in New York City now forging a powerful yet contentious bond with it’s 8 million inhabitants.

 

Any artistic influences?

   - Simon McBurney, William Forsythe…oh, and Spalding…I used to play with his balls when I was a kid.

 

If you were meeting your prospective in-laws for the first time, how would you describe the work you do?

   - “Why I’m an archaeologist.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to attend to a very important dig.”…(door closes, sounds of a grown man weeping coming from the bathroom.)

 

What shouldn’t an audience expect from you?

   - Stories of my love affair with Kate Middleton…she was my first.

 

If this is your first festival, what do you think you’re in store for?

   - I’m hoping for no barfy rides.

 

What’s the fun in Fringe?

   - A room full of strangers…like dad’s retirement party…and grandma’s funeral.

One Night in Portlandia…
