This Week Tonight show was...weird tonight. It was mostly alright, but there was a drunk dude in the audience who was totally sucking the energy out of the room. At several points, he was screaming "You're a bunch of neeeerds!" at us. I felt very conflicted, standing on stage as a both a performer who was annoyed, and as a theater owner who wanted to take full advantage of his ability--nay, right--to throw this drunk asshole out of his space.

Other than the drunken silliness, it was an almost full house, and a pretty fun show. I was not particularly satisfied with my own performance, though I had some fun being pimped to use various and sundry accents to adequate affect.

I have been in a strange headspace about improv lately. Almost like I don't really enjoy it. Either that or I'm in a slump. Or I'm just in a seriously life-funk.

Micetro should be interesting tomorrow.

We had a drunk the other night too.
There needs to be someone not onstage to handle hecklers. A house manager, or a tech person or something.

There is, usually.
Madeline didn't take care of it?
She did last time there was a drunk...though, I guess they stumbled in late. I went offstage once and I got her to take care of that problem. I was in the editor position though, so that was easier.

I'm pretty sure that Madeline threw that douchebag down the stairs. That's the way I'm going to remember it, anyway.

I've found that lately, having taken on much more responsibility for the production of improv, that it's taking away some of my enjoyment of said improv. In other words, I'm having trouble seperating play (stage) time from work (offstage) time.

Boo. Let's do the Monsters of Austin Improv Tour. All Theater Owners. One Week. Small markets.
