Thanks to everyone who saw my Really Short One-Man Show at Inside Improv last night. And thanks to DSI for the chance to do it -- I had real, real, real fun.

For those from the Dirty South who (1) will be in NYC for the DCM by JULY 28th, (2) are permanently in NYC, (3) will happen to be in NYC during the second half of August, I have this bit of Guerilla Marketing.
