There has been quite a lot going on since the announcement of Zarkana’s closing back in December ’15.
I wasted no time in securing at least a part-time/on-call gig with another Cirque show, Mystere at Treasure Island. I’ve already been rocking about a dozen shows, and it’s been a total blast. The Benny the Clown/Brian Le Petite character is right up my alley and a breeze to work on.
Voicing Loud and Clear
The voice over career is on a steady marathon toward success. I’ve been trying to diversify my client base—from cold calls to pay-to-play sites, from friend referrals to voice over rosters—and the next step in the works is courting agents.
Have been working with a new coach in order to build up my commercial skills, Nancy Wolfson of Braintracks Audio. She’s a rockstar in the commercial voice over coaching arena, and she has a no-nonsense attitude and a very clear technical roadmap that I’m taking to quite handily.
A notable recent gig is actually close to home. I am the voice over on the on-property ads for The Donny and Marie Show at the Flamingo Las Vegas!
Also, this is my new Voice Over Website!
Now that I have a bit more free time on my hands, I’ll be making myself available for more interesting appearances in LA. Not the least of which is the increasingly popular Scot Nery’s Boobie Trap.
My ‘partner’ Jenna is being a real doll and joining me on Scot’s stage for the May 11th show.
Punch and Judy
Speaking of LA stages, it’s time to dust off the old theatre acting chops! Old pal and collaborator from the Defiant Theatre days Christopher Johnson has suckered me into acting in a new play that he’s writing and directing for the Hollywood Fringe Festival in LA in June. It’s a live action Punch and Judy, and yes, I’m playing Punch. Lots of stage fighting, blood, guts and guns—typical for a Chris Johnson creation. Performances will be held at The Complex in Hollywood’s Theatre Row.
