Parallel Exit’s Comedy Academy AND MORE
The goodly clowns of Parallel Exit want you to know that they offering the following classes this summer. If the students turn out anything like the teachers, it’ll be money well spent, sez I to mself. (Not sure, but for some reason I just turned into Malachy McCourt).
At any rate, I just got this release from Lonergan, and — woo, boy — did he bury the lede in this thing! I scan the release and halfway down it says he and Joel Jeske are putting together the 2015-16 edition of Big Apple Circus!!! The class is exciting news, sure, but the circus bombshell is way bigger. I’m mega excited about this prospect so look for much more coverage as the time draws nigh and beyond. Meantime, take the class, take the class….
