Joshtoberfest continued - the funcrunch files


Oct. 29th, 2004 07:04 pm Joshtoberfest continued

Last night I went with boyziggy, zyxwvut, and zahraa to see Josh Kornbluth's one-man show, Ben Franklin: Unplugged. This show was great entertainment, ranging from very interesting and educational information about Franklin's life to hilarious anecdotes about Josh's adventures and relations with his family. I was hoarse from laughing. But the show and venue also had a wonderfully intimate feeling, with the set being a replica (apparently) of Josh's kitchen in Berkeley.

As I've written previously, Josh is a gifted monologuist who Ziggy was lucky enough to work with two Mime Troupe seasons ago. He's also a real sweetheart, giving comps to our friends and chatting with us after the show (though not for as long as before as he was obviously tired).

BF:U is playing at the Magic Theatre at Fort Mason through November 28; definitely worth checking out. Lots of parking for those of you who are auto-dependent. A Franklin historian who Josh describes in detail in the show, Claude-Anne Lopez, will be at the theatre for a free talk November 6 at 5 p.m., between the matinee and evening performances; I plan to be there.

The four of us also went to see Josh's movie Red Diaper Baby last Saturday; please catch it at the Roxie this weekend before it's gone!!

Hmm, I think I'm getting a bit Josh-infatuated. Well, I'm sure he's not reading my LJ anyway. ;-)

It was great to spend the holiday season, "Joshtoberfesttide," (as I described it in my email to The Man Hisself) with you guys. ;-D

I think that zahraa and I will fit in the visit to Fort Mason next Saturday, before heading off to Fleamont to ptor and cassidyrose's. (We will be "auto-dependent" in that situation, yes.)

P.S.: Thanks also for dinner. Nummy "beanherd's pie".

Cool. obadiah might want to come along too. I'm also going to see if I can audit part of a class at Blue Bear since it's right downstairs and runs 3-6.

P.S. I checked "Claude's" book The Private Franklin out of the library today :-D
