          The ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice’ is here with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing. The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.

          Don’t miss him LIVE at The Paramount Theatre of Austin on March 22nd!

The class’s interactive exercises build listening and communication skills, heighten awareness and teach you how to be more playful, spontaneous and flexible.

            First and foremost Happy Mother’s Day to everyone, I hope that you are lucky enough to be with your mom and spend some special time with her. A very special shout out to my mom, who I love very much and am so thankful for her support and encouragement.

            For those that are looking for some last minute ideas, a comedy show is always a great time! Tonight’s show will be similar the format as the show “Whose Line Is It Anyways.”  It is guaranteed to be a night of laughs, good times and a great opportunity for you to check out the new Zach theatre!

            This is probably my favorite thing about tonight’s show, if you’re not able to spend the day with your mom, come by at 7 pm and take a photo of yourself inside their life-sized greeting card and send it to your mom!
