This is just a quick follow-up to my last post. As planned, I performed a 20-minute feature set at Tuesday’s edition of Art Bar to a fairly weighty crowd. It was something of an epic night–all of the former leaders of the Art Bar team were in attendance, along with several Art Bar Discovery Night winners from various years. I think my performance hit at a near-perfect balance of humour, gravity, poetic intrigue and sheer weirdness, so I’m pretty happy with it overall.
For those who weren’t there, my friend and fellow writer Miles Forrester happened to shoot a great video of probably the most animated part of the performance, my reading/monologue of “TV’s Jon Dore on Jon Dore and The Jon Dore Television Show.” I’ve posted the video on YouTube, so you can check it out here. Let me know what you think!
