Wow – dead tired after an unbelievable day. Started very early (4:30 AM wake up…) Had great workshops, including Ken Groves’ Breathing workshop, Steve Petra’s Let’s Get Visual and Sammy King’s Showmanship and Stage Presence.
After the conVENTion photo, everyone eagerly awaited Terry Fator’s Comedy Writing lecture. Terry introduced one of Steve Axtell’s new puppets and offered a great lecture that included video of him sitting down with comedy writers to develop an original script.
We also found out that the evening show at the Taft Theatre was an all new road show. After his lecture, Terry signed autographs and posed for pictures until it was time to leave for his sound check.
Matthew Rolston presented his documentary on Talking Heads. Matthew’s photographs have appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Oprah magazines – plus many others. The documentary got a standing ovation and Matthew signed copies following the presentation.
Terry Fator’s show at the Taft Theater was spectacular. He even paid for the buses to get everyone to and from the theater. Thanks Terry!
Sorry I can’t remember more – long days and I have an early start again tomorrow.
