Happy to announce that my two man comedy group, Michinoku Driver, will be performing at this year’s Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, Thursday March 20th at 8pm! We had a lot of fun performing there with The High Ceilings last year, and we’ve got something fun in store for this one. Tickets are on sale now!
Michinoku Driver presents “An Even Briefer Misunderstanding of A Brief Understanding of Time”
Michinoku Driver’s Brian Work & John Ugolini are seekers of knowledge, and it is to this end that they have conceived a very ambitious 20 minute condensed version of Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time.” There’s just one minor setback: They haven’t actually read the book. But why should they let that stop them?
Over the last three years I’ve spent countless hours on my first feature film, Uncommon Law. Between writing, casting, filming, editing, etc., it’s more or less taken over my life. Now I can finally say that it’s done. The road isn’t over yet, because there’s still publicity, festivals, & distribution ahead. But it’s nice to see that light at the end of the tunnel shine a little brighter.
Tickets are now on sale for my show at The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival with Michinoku Driver! The show is on Sunday, January 12 @ 2pm in The Cab at Stage 773. Check out the show description below and then click here to purchase tickets!
Michinoku Driver – Closure: Sometimes life has you pinned to the mat, and sometimes you just have to take a steel chair to its head. Michinoku Driver’s Brian Work & John Ugolini take a humorous look at the difficult & defining moments in their lives, exploring themes of love, loss, & disappointment through such skewed lenses as broken bank robbers, existential board games, and lonely vampire hunters.
I recently signed on to be Director of Photography for a TV pilot called “Out on a Limb.” Here’s a shot of me getting prepped for the first day of shooting.
