Me and Dave Waller will be doing our Marbles improv comedy business at So it Goes, at Cafe Oto in Dalston. We’ll be accompanied by music Marble and fellow Vonnegut enthusiast Rob Grundel.
If you read this blog, you may already be aware that I think quite highly of old Mr.Vonnegut, writing this upon his passing
We’re really looking forward to this event, as not only was Kurt Vonnegut and his writings hugely influential on me during my formative years, we’ll also be debuting a new form we’ve been working on, called a Riff.
We’ll be riffing that night on quotes from Kurt Vonnegut. Rob has been in touch with Donald Farber, the man responsible for the Vonnegut estate, and a pretty tremendous dude in his own right.
And Donald likes what we’re going to do (so I gather), but as the rights of the work lie with various other parties, we’re not able to record the show. So you;ll have to come see it, or ask me about it, or best of all, come to the event, and draw a picture in the margins of your notebook during our set, scan it or rip it out and mail it to me.
There’s also a whole bunch of other acts presenting “original work inspired by the writing and ideas of the author of Slaughterhouse-Five, Cats Cradle, Player Piano, Welcome To The Monkeyhouse and Timequake, among others.”
It promises to be both original and inspired.
