Hi Essay Fiesta fans! If you can’t bare to only see Keith and Alyson do their thing once a month, fret not. The duo frequently perform throughout this fair city and beyond. In fact, Keith just performed at the 43rd Annual Chicago Biggest Liar Contest. Although he lost to formidable opponents Kristen Studard and Don Hall, he still pleased the crowd with his best pirate impression.
You can also catch Keith at the upcoming edition of Funny Ha Ha, a hilarious literary love fest produced by the always entertaining Claire Zulkey. That show is at The Hideout on April 10 at 7 p.m. Keith will also be speaking at DePaul University during a Career Center-sponsored event about creative people and their creative jobs. That is on April 13th at 2 p.m. at the new DePaul art museum.
Alyson, meanwhile, will be heading out of town to Three Oaks, Mich. on April 26 to entertain the lovely people at the Acorn Theater during another installment of their adult storytelling showcase. The Acorn Theater is an amazing space that must be seen to be believed. Featuring a beautifully refurbished pipe organ, the theater itself is a work of art, not to mention the amazing works of art that the night’s performers will be sharing on stage.
