"Everybody Knows Time Machines are a Bad Idea"


My dear friend Kevin Seeber wrote and directed this short play and asked me and a couple of my closest friends to be in it. "Everybody Knows Time Machines are a Bad Idea" was the first thing to be shown on the OAF stage, which previously had been a shed full of junk. Bobby Z and Kevin, who both appear in this video, put a lot of work in and made the shed into the "Slusher Street Theatre", which is still being used as a venue today!! (See http://myspace.com/oafhouse)

This was one of three plays shown to debut the theatre, a night called "Jerks in Progress".

I'm not that happy with my performance in this play but I absolutely LOVE watching my friends!! Sean Jarrett is particularly hilarious, and you can hear William Tucker laughing pretty often in the audience.

Hmm, the video sort of cuts off suddenly as well but to correct that I'd need to find and re-capture the original tape. Maybe sometime...

Thanks to Kevin for making this happen and Shahar for agreeing to film it for me at the very last moment.
