So, how many, if any, holiday shows do you have? Are you working on new holiday material?

For me, I have not really had a lot of holiday shows. I’m working on a Thanksgiving show right now for the Indian Tribe here in our area. I have performed for the Tribe many times. They are very receptive people and really enjoy my shows. I usually do a holiday show for the Jewish community up north, around the Christmas holiday, but they normally wait till the last minute to hire me, even though I’ve asked them to plan ahead. lol

I haven’t gotten that far, I am still creating character pages, and writing material. It is my slowest area of development but I so badly want all my material to be stuff I have written.

 

I should brainstorm holidays as they come around just to add bits of material to my file for when I finally get to where I need it!!

My wife and I write most of my material and have a blast doing it. At least we make each other laugh while writing.

Always great writing with a partner Eddie! I used to know if I could make the ex laugh, the joke was solid.

I’m putting a couple of Xmas scripts together. Nowhere to perform but at least I’ll be ready if an opportunity turns up.

The first one is using Ethan the eagle who I normally teach how to fly but this time he’s dressed as Rudolph and wants to fly like him. In the end we use Christmas cheer (like in the film Elf) to make him fly and the idea is to get the audience singing Rudolph the red nose reindeer but instead it will be Ethan the red nosed Eagle.

Not 100% sure what I’m doing with VJ yet, probably something Scrooge like, doesn’t like Christmas because he doesn’t get what he wants, but he wants a real Ferrari

Paul, you never know when that show will come but at least you will be ready. Sounds like you have a good grip on a routine. 

Tom, when a Felicia and I write, not all of it makes it in, because we have to remember we’re writing for kids. 😂😂

Been there done that Eddie. At least most of my audiences are adults – but I still need to be careful!

Paul – years ago I wrote a script with some friends that had a scrooge reference. (Not sure who came up with this but I’ve been using it and you are welcome to if you’d like.)

V – You’ll be visited by the 3 ghosts of Christmas – Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future …

P – Like What I got, what I’m getting and what I’m going to get?

V – (shaking a fist at puppet like he’s thinking of punching him) I’ll tell you what you’re going to get.

Thanks Tom.

I do already have his scripts done now so as it is it would be difficult to include those lines, although would be possible should i decide to lengthen it at all 😉

I like that one. Not sure which character, but it is cute!

So the Thanksgiving show for the Indian Tribe went really good. It is always a tough group to perform for but it worked out well. I had a lot of kids come up after the show and wanted to take pictures with the gang. That’s a good feeling.
