Wonder Dave is doing things!

Hey Folks!

Lately I’ve been devoting this space entirely to NERDGASM which you should totally go to. How can you not want to see a show full of Nerdy Queer People?

NERDGASM is an explosion of all things Nerdy!  This wild romp features
nerdy queers of all stripes. If you’ve ever fantasized about Spock and
Kirk getting busy or wondered  exactly what Princess Diana did in her
free time on paradise Island or if you’re just socially awkward and
get really into your hobbies you are the audience for this show.
Poetry, Storytelling, Comedy and more 100% nerdy. Featuring
performances by Baruch Porras Hernandez, Jennifer Dronsky, Terry
Taplin, Wonder Dave (that’s me!), Liz Green, Nick Leonard and more! Click here for the facebook event page.

OUR MOTTO: “The Words You Long to Hear”

Verbatim Verboten, created in Chicago over 10 years ago by MICHAEL MARTIN, is an ever-changing revue of brief, staged transcripts. This is an evening of word-for-word performances of noted and notorious folk (also some ‘civilians’) saying things they never intended the public to hear: sureveillance tapes, wiretapped conversations, forgotten live mics, on-camera diatribes, released emails, private correspondence, 911 calls, and the like. The producers have collected almost 400 such pieces, with new material being added to the mix all the time…meaning no performance is exactly like the one before.
Verbatim Verboten has enjoyed extended successful runs in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, New York, and New Orleans.

We promise to perform the transcripts verbatim, but we don’t promise not to, um…re-interpret them in staging and delivery.
