Holiday Performances

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything.  I was starting to think why bother? Hasn’t this been a time? Zoom conferences and conventions, zoom lag, exhaustion from sitting in front of a computer for a convention. Everything I anticipated would happen has, except for one important factor. ME.I hadn’t realized that the very thing to fight the zoom fatigue and...

Economics of Virtual

You keep saying artists should innovate. That the innovators will shine. The problem for online performers is the way iTunes killed revenue for musicians, virtual shows will kill it for stage artists. Pricing for online shows continues to drop. Sure there will be outliers. Acts who make money and even become successful. However for every one Beiber, there's 5 million...

Comedy Show

I have a fondness for Winnipeg.  The city is fun and I have friends who live there who are always a blast to hang out with, it has a thriving arts scene and a world class comedy festival. True, Winnipeg also reaches temperatures of minus 33 in the winter, as I witnessed on a recent trip in December while performing a...
