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. ;-)
