I’m writing a day ahead of my weekly blog post with a very special announcement. As I have briefly indicated in previous blog posts, I’m currently involved in the making of the upcoming second iteration of “The Geek Show.” For those who need a refresher, “The Geek Show” is both a love letter and critique to contemporary geek culture; explored by way of sketch comedy, dramatic pieces, and other mediums appropriate for the stage.
This year’s iteration is a little different. While last year’s presented geek culture in a wide variety of circumstances and environments (i.e. a boot camp, at someone’s home, a convention, a college campus, an unforeseen universe, etc.), this year’s iteration will have all the stories set entirely within a fictional geek convention called BindleCon. If you were to rip off the roof of a convention center, what kind of stories would you find?
Several of the stories are going to be interconnected with one another, and as someone whose debut novel featured loads of interconnected interactions, this is an element a part of this iteration of “The Geek Show” that I really love. Plus, it makes perfect sense too, given the environment this all takes place in.
We still have a ways to go before we’re ready to perform for an audience, but progress remains firmly set and in swift motion; especially since this is our second time doing it. A lot of hard work is coming out of everyone involved, and we’re all just honestly excited for returning and new audiences to see what we’ve created this time around. (Also, in case you’re wondering, yes, I have written a few scripts that will be featured in this iteration too.)
In any case, “The Geek Show 2: BindleCon” will be taking place this April at Bindlestiff Studio in San Francisco. As of this week, tickets are now available for purchase. If you live in or will be in the San Francisco Bay Area at all by then and are interested in going, click here to buy them.
In the mean time, if you want to see the first iteration of “The Geek Show,” you can purchase a download of it off of the official “Geek Show” website. Otherwise, I’ll be back tomorrow with my regular weekly blog post.
