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.
Michinoku Driver, my two man comedy group with John Ugolini, won the Stage 773 Sketch Laugh Battle, earning us a spot in The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival in January! We’re excited & grateful for everyone who came out & showed their support.
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.
I was recently interviewed to promote my improv group’s upcoming show this Thursday at The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival. In it, I talk about video games, geekdom, and how The High Ceilings came to be. Give it a read on the Nerd Fest Tumblr! (EDIT: The Chicago Nerd Fest Tumblr no longer exists; a transcript of the interview can now be found right here.)
Also check out this video I made to promote the show, where the members of the High Ceilings transform into Warcraft characters and venture into Azeroth!
